Volvo Offers Built-In Booster Seats For Your Children’s Safety
What is an integrated booster seat? It’s a booster that pops up out of the rear seat’s bench, raising the child up to create a better fit for the seat belt. When the booster is not in use, it can be stowed into the seat’s bench. This feature is great if it fits your child properly, as the integrated safety seat is made specifically for that vehicle. A secondary benefit of the integrated booster is it will not be at risk of becoming a projectile in a collision. Volvo Cars developed the very first cushion for children in cars back in 1978. In 1990 the Swedish car maker took child safety to a new dimension with the development of the first integrated booster cushion.
Volvo offers integrated dual-stage booster seats with its V60 wagon and the very popular XC60 SUV as well. These child booster seats can be adjusted to two heights, allowing the booster seat to adjust as the children grow.
The highest setting on the dual-stage booster seat is for children measuring 37 to 47 inches tall and weighing between 33 and 55 pounds; the lower setting is intended for children between 45 and 55 inches tall and 48 and 80 pounds, according to Volvo.
