SEAT Leon Owner's Manual / Safety First / Child safety / Child seats / Categorisation of child seats into groups

Use only child seats that are officially approved and suitable for the child.

Child seats are covered by the European standard ECE R 44 (issued by the Economic Commission of Europe).

The child seats are grouped into 5 categories:

Group 0: to 10 kg
Group 0+: to 13 kg
Group 1: 9 to18 kg
Group 2: 15 to 25 kg
Group 3: 22 to 36 kg

Child seats that have been tested and approved under the ECE R 44 standard bear the test mark on the seat (the letter E in a circle with the test number below it).
