Can Children’s Car Seats Be Installed in the Front Seat?

Whilst we don’t recommend it, it is not illegal for child car seats to be used on the front passenger seat. A forward-facing seat can be used, but you must refer to your vehicle handbook to see if it is possible to fit a seat in that position.

Can I install a car seat in front of the passenger seat airbag?

You should NEVER put a rearward-facing car seat in the front if there is an active passenger airbag.

If you need to install a forward-facing car seat or a high-backed booster (HBB), please read the vehicle handbook to determine whether the installation is possible, if so, where to position your front passenger seat and whether the airbag should be turned off.
