Volkswagen Golf Owners Manual / Before the journey / Sitting correctly and safely / Child seats (accessories) / General information on transporting children in the vehicle

First read and observe the introductory information and safety warnings

Legislation and legal requirements take precedence over the descriptions in this owner's manual. Various standards and regulations govern the use of child seats and methods for securing them (). For example, this could mean that in some countries you are not allowed to use child seats on certain seats in the vehicle.

The laws of physics which come into force on a vehicle during a collision or any other kind of accident also apply for children   . In contrast to adults and teenagers, however, children's muscles and bones are not yet fully developed. There is a higher risk for children than for adults of sustaining serious injuries in an accident.

Children must be transported using child restraint systems that are specifically suited to their size, weight and physical build, as children's bodies are not yet fully developed. In many countries there are laws that require the use of approved child restraint systems for babies and small children.

Only use suitable, approved and authorised child seats in your vehicle. If you are unsure, always speak to your Volkswagen dealership or a qualified workshop.
