Seat Altea XL

Bilens størrelse har ingen indflydelse på hvor godt eller skidt en bagudvendt autostol passer ind. det er bilens interiør og de voksne på forsædet der er afgørende. En stor bil er ikke nødvendigvis stor invendigt og en lille bil er ikke nødvendigvis lille indvendig i selve passagerkabinen.

The size of the car has no influence on how much comfort a rearfacing seat takes away in front. The adults in the front seats and the car interior are the determining factors. A large car might not have heaps of room in the passenger area. A small car can have good room for a rearfacing seat
Der kan forekomme fotos af stolen i biler lånt hos en forhandler./Some photos are taken at car dealerships.

Some of the photos taken at car dealships include “Yours Truely” in order to give a better indication for the leg space for a 180 cm tall person. That is 5ft 11″.

Seat Altea XL

En lille familie på far, mor og 1-årig søn på 11 kg var på udkig efter en autostol i den næste størrelse og havde heldigvis bestemt sig for en bagudvendt. Ud over Seat Altea XL hvade de også en lille VW Lupo fra 2003 uden isofix. Så der var brug for at en autostol som kunne monteres i begge biler. Typisk ville der kun være en voksen i Lupoen ud over sønnen, så pladsbehovet var ikke vigtigt her. Det vigtigste var deres Seat Altea XL, som blev brugt på langture og når begge skulle med. Jeg fik ikke spurgt ind til hvor høje forældrene var, men et skud vil være 170 for mor og 180 for far.

Seat Altea XL er en mellemstørrelse familiebil ala stationcar. Men den er endnu et eksempel på at selv om man har en bil i den størrelse, så betyder det ikke at der automatisk er masser af plads inden i. Denne bil er faktisk ikke så rummelig. Peugeot 308 SW feks. er en bil af samme størrelse men med en helt anden indretning og derved en meget mere rummelig bil – trods at størrelsen er den samme.

Ønskerne til den kommende autostol: At den skulle kunne monteres i begge biler, have hvileposition, havde mulighed for at kunne vendes fremad og gerne en som kunne indstilles til hvileposition i et enkelt snuptag. Og gerne have benplads til barnet.

Det med benpladsen blev vendt, idet børn er meget smidige og kan sidde i nogle stillinger som er behagelige for dem men ikke voksne. Så vi vendte vigtigheden af at lade ham forblive i bagudvendt position til han selv begyndte at sige fra og klage over dårlig komfort.

Var den første autostol som blev afprøvet, da de havde bla.denne i tankerne. De ville have en vendbar autostol, og det har Plus ikke mulighed for. Men det kom frem bagefter. Den blev sat ind bag førersædet.

Forankringsselerne kunne ikke sættes fast i skinnerne uden fæsteøjer, som i øvrigt følger med Besafes bagudvendte selemonterede autostole ved køb. Dette blev de informeret om. Men i dag måtte selerne monteres ind i forsædet, og det er heldigvis forholdsvis enkelt. Der var ingen problemer med monteringen af stolen. Vi har dog ikke sat klemmen fast om sikkerhedsselen foran, men det er heller ikke vigtigt så længe man ved den SKAL bruges for at forhindre sikkerhedsselen i at hoppe ud af position. Den var svær at lukke.

Sønnen kunne lige nøjagtig spændes forsvarligt fast i den i den nederste seleposition. Jakken havde han normalt ikke på i bilen.

Pladsbehovet var lige i overkanten bag førersædet. Den ville meget muligt have kunnet være bag passagersædet, hvor Izi kid blev sat ind i bilen.

Hældningen i bilen var god.

This little family of a father, a mother and a 1-year-old 11 kg son were searching for the next stage car seat and had decided on a rearfacing car seat. They had two cars. The other one was a VW Lupo 2003 without isofix. So they needed a car seat that could be safely mounted in both cars. The mother would be the only adult in the Lupo with the son, so space requirements were not important for this car. The Seat Altea XL was the main car that they would use on long road trips and when all had to go. I forgot to ask about their height, but a good shot at it would be 170 cm for the mother (5ft 7”) and 180 cm  (5 ft 11”) for the father.

The Seat Altea XL is a medium-sized family car like a station car. But it is yet another exsample of the fact that a car this size does not automatically mean there is heaps of room inside. This car happens to be quite small inside. The Peugeot 308 SW is similar sized car but with a whole other interior design resulting in much more room inside of it.

Their whishes for the next car seat were: Could be safely mounted in both cars. 1-hand recline. Possibility to turn it forwards as well as good leg space for the child.

The thing about the leg space was touched as children are very smooth and can sit comfortably in positions that look awfully uncomfortable to parents. For this reason the fact that the son should sit rearfacing until he himself expressed discomfort because of it  was touched.

Was the first car seat to be installed into the car as they were considering this one. They were looking for a car seat that could be used forward facing as well, but that wasn´t touched until after the Izi Plus had been installed.

The tether straps were installed in the front seat itself as there was no gap to feed them underneath the front seat runners. All Besafe belted rearfacing seats do come with two pairs of tether rings that are to be mounted on the front seat runners, which they were informed about. There was no trouble installing the car seat other than the belt clip being very tough to close. It is there to prevent the seatbelt from coming out of position which they knew. So we did not close it.

Their son could just about be safely strapped into the seat in the lowest harness setting. He wore a coat which he normally does not when he is riding in the car.

Space requirements were a bit too much for both parents. This seat might have done better spacewise behind the front passenger seat.

The recline in the car was good
