Perodua Introduces New Versatile Care Seat For Children

The new Perodua Care Seat child seat is now available at all authorised Perodua showrooms for parents to provide their child with a safe and comfortable seat to travel in. Replacing the previous Perodua GearUp range of separate infant and toddler seats, the new Care Seat is more versatile yet priced lower at RM680 in Peninsular Malaysia, and RM695 in East Malaysia. The Perodua Care Seat is suitable for all children up to 12 years of age (or up to 36 kg in weight).

“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.

The Perodua Care Seat is available in either grey or blue, and comes with a one-year warranty which is double the warranty period of the previous GearUp Infant and Toddler seats. The purchase of a Care Seat can also be factored into the hire purchase of a new Perodua vehicle. But you don’t necessarily need to own a Perodua vehicle to buy the seat.

Besides it being the law, it is also a practical means to have your child strapped into a child seat to reduce the risk of serious injury or being flung out of the vehicle during a collision.
