Child safety

Maximum protection for your children when travelling

Mother looks into car

Your child's safety is a priority - for us, as well as for you. That's why we use Isofix child seat fixings in all our cars.

Isofix is being adopted worldwide as a safer way to travel with your children. The Isofix child seat fixes directly into compatible fittings in your Volkswagen, creating a secure link. It's quick, simple and there's no need to use the adult seatbelts.

Studies have shown many child car seats are not fitted properly, putting your children at risk. With Isofix, securing your child's car seat properly is much easier, reducing the risk of injury in an accident.

Why do we use Isofix?

Car manufacturers wanted to create the best, uniform standard for fitting child seats safely, and they came up with Isofix. Isofix child seats can be used in all cars which have compatible factory-fitted fixings. The child seat preparation has two mountings fixed to the body of the car. The compatible child seat fits securely to these mountings by two support arms. They are easy to fit and offer high levels of safety because they are fixed rigidly to the car body. All our cars have Isofix fittings in the back seats.

Please refer to your Volkswagen Owner's manual for official guidance on use and operation of all our technology.
