The use of Child Restraint Systems (CRS), or child seats have become mandatory since January 1, 2020. If you still haven’t purchased one for your family, or better yet, recently had a new family member (congratulations!), Perodua’s new Care Seat might be of your interest!

Priced at RM680 in Peninsular Malaysia and RM695 in East Malaysia, the Perodua Care Seat is suitable for children of all ages up to 12 (or weighing up to 36 kg). The new seat replaces the previous GearUp Infant and Toddler seats, which retailed for RM785 and RM975 respectively.

The ISOFIX-enabled child seat complies with the ECE R44/04 standards, which is one of the two standards adopted by the Malaysian government. It can be installed facing forwards or backwards, and features six recline angles as well as a harness that self-adjusts according to headrest position.

“The Perodua Care Seat is more cost-effective as the same seat can be used for thechild throughout, without needing to change from an infant to a toddler seat as the child gets older,” said Perodua President and CEO Dato’ Zainal Abidin Ahmad. But of course, this only applies up to the expiry date – yes, child seats have them!

“It bears repeating that all children should be properly secured in child seats in moving vehicles for their safety. In encouraging this, Perodua is bringing out a product that is durable, adaptable, comfortable, affordable and meets safety standards.

“Perodua will continue to spread awareness, educate and advocate the use of child seats amongst our customers. We hope the use of child seats in Malaysia will become commonplace one day – this would go a long way in reducing road injuries and fatalities, especially of our precious young ones,” he added.

The new Perodua Care Seat is available in either grey or blue, and comes as standard with a one-year warranty – double the warranty period of the outgoing GearUp Infant and Toddler seats. Buying a new Perodua? The Care Seat can also be factored directly into the hire-purchase agreement.

The Perodua Car Seat is now on sale at all authorised Perodua outlets nationwide.
