2-in-1 innovation

As a world first, the Salia Elite combines the infant carrier and child seat. All safety-relevant features are built into the seat. As such, our safe all-rounder clocks in at a lightweight 2.9 kg when outside the vehicle. In this way, it makes the everyday routine for the mobile family easy. And the little ones? They can lie back, relax and continue dreaming.

360 degree rotation

Just like that, with a single grip of the hand, the entire child seat can be rotated 360 degrees. Safe and ergonomic seating and removing of your child; the harness is fastened and unfastened quickly and free of stress. Now the entertaining journey can begin. What‘s left is more time – moments to enjoy together or very simply, having fun as a family.

Advanced Side
Protection (ASP)

The integrated protectors can be quickly and simply folded out on the door side. In the event of a side collision, the energy absorbers reduce the force that would act upon the child. The combination of infant carrier, seat structure and side wings offer threefold protection from side collisions. In any car.


Rear-facing transport, optimised side collision protection and the intuitive ISOFIX installation offer little explorers maximum safety in the rear seat. When facing away from the direction of travel, in the event of a frontal collision the forces are distributed across the entire body, whereby the sensitive head and neck areas stay protected. The child seat fulfils the stringent safety standards in accordance with UN R129.

Height-adjustable headrest with integrated harness

As they are still growing, an ergonomic posture is essential for children. The infant carrier‘s height-adjustable headrest with integrated harness allows for maximum seating comfort, supports healthy posture and, thanks to the optimised harness guide, increases safety on every journey.

Travel System

Psst, just let the baby sleep a while longer: a quick change from car to stroller for the RECARO infant carriers is possible thanks to special adapter – this flexibility allows you stress-free mobility in everyday situations.

Is the Salia Elite compatible with my vehicle?

Please always check your car’s manual for possible notes/instructions/prohibitions from the manufacturer regarding the use of child seats in your car!

Sorry, this seat is not approved for your vehicle.

Reasons for denied approval can be:

  • Limited space for the child seat
  • 3-point-belt is too short
  • If it should occur that once the child seat is attached to the ISOFIX connection, and the seat covers the buckle there is no guarantee of a safe installation
  • Headrest of the car is not removable and prevents the child seat from being placed correctly
  • Storage compartment in the foot area does not allow installation of child seat or base with a supporting leg

Safety notes for using RECARO Child Seats

Child seats with an ISOFIX connection:

If the vehicle has a floor storage compartment, using an ISOFIX base is restricted.
This is dependent on whether the support leg of the base can be placed on the floor of the storage compartment (if necessary, remove cover) or if the vehicle manufacturer offers appropriate filling elements as an accessory to prevent the lid from breaking through.

Please read your vehicle's user manual thoroughly or contact your car dealership on this subject.

If these possibilities are not given we can't confirm the safe use of an ISOFIX system with support leg in combination with a floor storage compartment.

Thank you for your understanding.
