Perodua Isofix Care Seat – rated up to 36 kg, fr RM680

Perodua has announced the availability of the Care Seat, priced at RM680 in Peninsular Malaysia and RM695 in East Malaysia, and is now on sale at all authorised Perodua outlets nationwide. This replaces the previous GearUp Infant and Toddler car seats, which were priced at RM785 and RM975 for Peninsular Malaysia, respectively.

The carmaker’s latest child seat offering is Isofix-enabled, and is suitable for children up to 12 years of age, or up to 36 kg in weight. Previously, the GearUp Infant seat was rated for infants up to 13 kg, and the GearUp Toddler was rated for children between nine and 36 kg.

The Care Seat can be installed facing forwards or rearwards in the vehicle, and can be adjusted to six angles or recline, while the harness of the Care Seat self-adjusts according to the position of the headrest.

Two colours are available for the Perodua Care Seat; grey and blue. The Care Seat is covered by a one-year warranty, or double the warranty period of the outgoing GearUp Infant and Toddler car seats, and the price of the Care Seat can be factored into the hire purchase of new Perodua vehicles, the carmaker said.

“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 seat to a toddler seat as the child gets older,” said Perodua president and CEO Datuk Zainal Abidin Ahmad in a statement.

    Perodua owners dun give a frack at those prices. Their budget is more like Rm300-400 MAX.

    Who are they kidding here?

    There is a great need to have a car facility to detect children left alone in cars by forgetful parents or carers.
    Just recently a child was dead after his granny left him in a car after forgetting about him.
    In our country it doesn’t take long for a child to be dead if left alone in a car.
    On top of that many cars in this country are now heavily tinted and it is well neigh impossible to see anyone inside let alone a small child who may be left behind.
    What happened to our laws which stated a there is a limit to the level of tinting allowed?
    I understand that cars in countries like the US are now equipped with sensors that can detect if a child is left behind and an alarm will sound and a message will be sent to the driver soon after this was detected.
    It would be a great boon to parents if we also have such a system.

    • There are already carseats with phone connectivity that will alert when the child unbuckled the clip themselves, monitor seat temperature and also notify if child is left in the seat. Not cheap though.

      Anyway, these Perodua seats are too expensive. Bundle them with the car loan, so it won’t feel too expensive.

    Thought there was a plan to produce good and affordable car seats- subsidized, reduced profit margin, etc? At rm 700 is 70% of the minimum wage monthly salary…
