What is the best child car seat for a Nissan Qashqai?

We're having our first child in the new year and unsure about which child seats that we should be looking at - it's all so confusing. Do you have any advice and - ideally - details of which you think would be best for a nearly-new Nissan Qashqai?

Based on the 2014-onwards Qashqai (kit.honestjohn.co.uk/car-seat-chooser/nissan/qashq.../), we've got full reviews for a fair few seats that would fit the vehicle. Of the options, we'd recommend the Joie i-Level. We awarded it 5 stars and Group 0+ Child Seat of the Year back in May at our annual product awards. It's i-size compliant, which requires more side-impact protection and for the child to be seated facing backwards until they are at least 15 months old. It also means that it can only be secured to the car via Isofix and, unlike many infant car seats, the i-Level doesn’t just hold your baby in one fixed, slightly sitting, position. You can adjust it so your little one can lie flat, which could be a godsend for those that are out and about and want to lie their baby down to go to sleep. You can read the full review here: kit.honestjohn.co.uk/reviews/joie-i-level/

It's priced at just under £200 as well, which is why we'd recommend it over the excellent, but pricier, Joie 360 Spin: kit.honestjohn.co.uk/reviews/review-joie-spin-360/
