Child Restraint Systems (Child Seats)

General safety instructions

Porsche recommends that all infants and children be restrained in child restraint systems at all times while the vehicle is in motion in accordance with applicable laws.

When possible, use only child restraint systems recommended by Porsche. These systems have been tested and adjusted to the interior of your Porsche and the appropriate child weight groups. Other systems have not been tested and could entail an increased risk of injury.

The use of infant or child restraints is required by law in all 50 US states and the Canadian provinces. The child restraint system should be one that complies with U.S. Federal/Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Standards and should be secured by a lap belt portion of a lap-shoulder belt or for child seats equipped with the L.A.T.C.H. system (Lower Anchorage and Tether for Children, also known as ISOFIX) to the L.A.T.C.H. anchorages.

A statement by the seat manufacturer of compliance with U.S. Federal/Canadian standards can be found on the instruction label on the restraint and in the instruction manual provided with the restraint.

You can obtain child seats that are L.A.T.C.H. compatible at your authorized Porsche dealer.

  • Always observe the separate installation instructions for your child seat.

Improper use of child restraint systems
Children could be endangered in a crash if their child restraints are not properly secured in the vehicle.

  • Make sure that all child restraints are properly secured.
  • Follow all child restraint instructions and warnings in this manual.

  • Always observe the separate operating instructions for the child restraint system provided by the manufacturer of the child restraint for installation, use and proper securing of the child.
  • Only use child restraint systems recommended for your Porsche. These systems have been tested and adjusted to the interior of your Porsche and the appropriate child weight groups. Other systems have not been tested and could present an increased risk of injury.
  • Infants and small children should never be held on the lap or share a seat belt with another occupant while the vehicle is in motion.
  • Children too big for child restraint systems must use regular seat belts. A child is too small for a seat belt if the shoulder belt crosses the face or the neck of the child.
  • Choose a child restraint system according to the height and weight of the child.
  • Child restraint systems that are damaged or have been heavily stressed in an accident must be replaced immediately.
  • Children could be endangered in a crash if their child restraints are not properly secured in the vehicle.
  • Do not affix objects to child restraint systems or cover them with other materials.
  • For maximum safety and protection, install the child restraint system in the rear seat.

Installing child restraint systems

According to accident statistics, children are safer when properly restrained in the rear seating positions than in the front seating positions.

Under all normal circumstances, the forward facing child seat must be placed in the rear.

  • Do not use a child restraint system in the front passenger seat.

Children in group 0 and 0+: Up to 29 lbs. (13 kg)
