Federal car seat safety standards require a frontal impact test with a 30-mph velocity change. This approximates the crash forces generated in a collision between a vehicle traveling 60 mph and a parked car of similar mass, or the energy produced in a fall from a three-story building. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced a final rule in the summer of 2022 to add a side impact test protocol to the federal car seat safety standard. This rule goes into effect in August of 2025.
At CYBEX, car seat safety is a top priority. That's why we have created the CYBEX Side Impact test protocol. The CYBEX Side Impact test protocol was developed by CYBEX engineers using state-of-the-art facilities. The rigorous test simulates the energy in the severe 5-star government side impact tests conducted for automobiles.
CYBEX Side-impact testing simulates a crash in which the vehicle carrying the car seat is struck on the side by another vehicle. An example of a real-life side-impact collision is when a car crossing an intersection is struck on the side by another car that ran a stop sign.
All CYBEX car seats meet or exceed all applicable Federal safety standards and CYBEX’s side impact standards.

Approximately one out of four vehicle crashes have a side impact component. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), impacts to the side of the vehicle rank almost equal to frontal crashes as a source of fatalities and serious injuries to children ages 0 to 12 years.
