Perodua’s Care Seat: One Seat For Children Up To 12yo
Instead of buying 3 seperate child seats, parents can now opt for the the Perodua Care Seat, which words on children up 36kg.
Regardless, car companies have stepped up. Perodua began to offer the GearUp Infant and Toddler seats. However, at RM785 and RM975, these were both still a little too pricey for some families to afford. So, they used the engineering expertise to come up with a “Care Seat” that was not only cheaper than both, but that filled the role for children up to ages 12 or up to the weight of 36kg.
The seat is available in grey and in blue. It can be affixed to ISOFIX points and complies to ECE R44/04 standards. It can be rotated forwards or backwards and features six recline angles and a hardness that self-adjusts to the headrest position. This adjustability is what makes it suitable for infants, toddlers and children too.
What’s more, the Perodua Care Seat comes with a 1 year warranty (longer than the GearUp child seats, and can be factored into the hire purchase loan when buying a new Perodua vehicle. It goes on sale in all Perodua dealerships nationwide today.
Here’s the press release with more.
Perodua has introduced its Care Seat, a new child seat suitable for
both infants and toddlers, giving Malaysian parents greater versatility, practicality and value. Priced at RM680 in Peninsular Malaysia and RM695 in East Malaysia, the Perodua Care Seat is suitable for children of all ages up to 12 (or weighing up to 36 kg), replacing Perodua’s previous GearUp Infant and Toddler seats, which respectively cost RM785 and RM975 (Peninsular prices).
“The Perodua Care Seat forms part of our continuous drive for higher road safety as a caring, People First company, in line with the government’s aspirations,” said Perodua President and Chief Executive Officer Dato’ Zainal Abidin Ahmad.
“It bears repeating that all children should be properly secured in child seats in moving vehicles for their safety. In encouraging this, Perodua is bringing out a product that is durable, adaptable, comfortable, affordable and meets safety standards,” he added.
The ISOFIX-enabled Perodua Care Seat complies with ECE R44/04 standards. It can be rotated to face forwards or backwards and features six recline angles as well as a harness that self-adjusts according to headrest position.
“The Perodua Care Seat is more cost-effective as the same seat can be used for the child throughout, without needing to change from an infant to a toddler seat as the child gets older,” said Dato’ Zainal.
“Perodua will continue to spread awareness, educate and advocate the use of child seats amongst our customers. We hope the use of child seats in Malaysia will become commonplace one day – this would go a long way in reducing road injuries and fatalities, especially of our precious young ones,” he added.
Available in grey or blue, the Perodua Care Seat comes with a one-year warranty – double the warranty period of the outgoing GearUp Infant and Toddler seats – and can be factored into the hire purchase of new Perodua vehicles. The Perodua Care Seat is on sale now at all authorised Perodua outlets nationwide.
