Land Rover Discovery Owners & Service Manuals

Land Rover Discovery: Child seat positioning

Crash statistics show that children are safest when properly restrained in a child or infant restraint system that is secured in a rear seating position.

Seat belts (or suitable child restraints) should be used by all vehicle occupants, for every trip, no matter how short. Failure to do so will greatly increase the risk of death or serious injury in the event of an accident.

Information given within the table is correct at the time of going to press.

However, availability of child restraints may change. Please consult your Retailer/ Authorised Repairer for the latest recommendation.

Note: The information contained in the following tables may not be applicable to all countries. If you are in any doubt regarding the type and fitment of child seats, seek advice from a Retailer/ Authorised Repairer.

Note: Ages given are approximate. In case of doubt, the child's weight, not age, should be used when considering an appropriate child seat.

Note: The legislation which governs how and where children should be carried when travelling in a vehicle, is subject to change. It is the responsibility of the driver to comply with all regulations in force.
