A weekend away with the baby is something special. During the trip, parents are put at ease if the baby receives the best possible protection in the car. The infant carrier Avan surpasses all safety requirements and your baby enjoys optimal ventilation thanks to smart openings in the outer shell. Whether it‘s a short trip or a long one, our Avan can be fixed in place with the seat belt or with the optional i-Size base in just a single click. If the baby has outgrown the infant carrier, the Avan / Kio Base can be used as a modular system with the reboarder Kio up to the age of approx. 4 years. This is the making of lots of great trips.

MODULARITY THAT ACCOMPANIES YOU
The flexible solution for today and tomorrow.
Easy and safe, every day.
The Avan / Kio Base makes the infant carrier Avan and the reboarder Kio your easy and safe everyday companion for any situation. Both models boast a practical, modular system and a base that can stay in the vehicle for the entire period of use. Thanks to the base, both child seats can be quickly and firmly installed in any car with just one click. Perfect for the fast pace of family life. The combination of base and child seat is a perfect match, both technically and in terms of colour.
From birth to a height of 83 cm (about 15 months), the infant carrier Avan can only be used rear-facing. It can either quickly and easily click on to the Avan / Kio Base or be strapped in using the vehicle’s seat belt. You can use the reboarder Kio for your baby from a height of 60 cm (about 3 months) or, with the additionally available newborn inlay, right from birth. We recommend using the reboarder rear-facing for as long as possible – if possible up to a height of 105 cm or about 4 years of age. Once your little one is 16 months old, you can also use the reboarder forward facing. For safe journeys – both long and short.

Is the Avan in combination with the Avan/Kio Base compatible with my vehicle?
Please always check your car’s manual for possible notes/instructions/prohibitions from the manufacturer regarding the use of child seats in your car!
Sorry, this seat is not approved for your vehicle.
Reasons for denied approval can be:
- Limited space for the child seat
- 3-point-belt is too short
- If it should occur that once the child seat is attached to the ISOFIX connection, and the seat covers the buckle there is no guarantee of a safe installation
- Headrest of the car is not removable and prevents the child seat from being placed correctly
- Storage compartment in the foot area does not allow installation of child seat or base with a supporting leg
SAFETY NOTES FOR USING RECARO CHILD SEATS
Child seats with an ISOFIX connection:
If the vehicle has a floor storage compartment, using an ISOFIX base is restricted. This is dependent on whether the support leg of the base can be placed on the floor of the storage compartment (if necessary, remove cover) or if the vehicle manufacturer offers appropriate filling elements as an accessory to prevent the lid from breaking through.
Please read your vehicle's user manual thoroughly or contact your car dealership on this subject.
If these possibilities are not given we can't confirm the safe use of an ISOFIX system with support leg in combination with a floor storage compartment.
Thank you for your understanding.
