These vehicles made the ‘Car Seat Honor Roll’ for 2018


Figures from a 2016 pediatrics study showed that up to 95% of people install car seats correctly.

This is National Child Passenger Safety Week, and has released its annual Car Seat Check Honor Roll, which lists vehicles that earned top grades in the publication’s Car Seat Checks conducted a different times throughout the year.

Which 2018-19 vehicles made the Car Seat Check Honor Roll?

“This year we tested 85 vehicles in our Car Seat Checks, and only 9% earned perfect scores,” Editor-in-Chief Jennifer Newman said. “Parents often spend a lot of time determining the right car seat for their children but overlook how that seat will actually fit in their car. That’s why we test and score car seats in many of the most popular vehicles for sale.”

Here’s what, which graded on an academic A to F scale, found when it tested certain 2018-19 vehicles for their latch system, ease of use and other parameters.

Grade Year Make & Model Remarks
A 2018 Genesis G90 “Cavernous” backseat
A 2018 Hyundai Sonata “Roomy” backseat
A 2019 Jeep Cherokee Lots of legroom, “good fit”
A 2019 Lexus ES 350 Improved stability of rear-seat buckles
A 2018 Lincoln Continental Car seats “fit like a dream”
A 2018 Suburu Impreza Compact, but comfortable
A 2018 Toyota Camry Easy-access lower latch anchors
A 2018 Toyota 4Runner Second row easily handles 3 car seats
