Opel Corsa: Child restraints / Child restraint systems


If using a rear-facing child restraint system on the front passenger seat, the airbag system for the front passenger seat must be deactivated. This also applies to certain forward-facing child restraint systems as indicated in the tables.

We recommend a child restraint system which is tailored specifically to the vehicle. For further information, contact your workshop.

Before fastening a child seat adjust the head restraint.

When a child restraint system is being used, pay attention to the following usage and installation instructions and also those supplied with the child restraint system.

Always comply with local or national regulations. In some countries, the use of child restraint systems is forbidden on certain seats.

Child restraint systems can be fastened with:

  • Three-point seat belt
  • ISOFIX brackets
  • Top-tether

Three-point seat belt

Child restraint systems can be fastened by using a three-point seat belt. After fastening the child restraint system the seat belt has to be tightened.

ISOFIX brackets

Fasten vehicle-approved ISOFIX child restraint systems to the ISOFIX brackets. Specific vehicle ISOFIX child restraint system positions are marked in the ISOFIX table.

ISOFIX brackets are indicated by a label on the backrest. To get access to the ISOFIX brackets, first pull the zipper.

An i-Size child restraint system is an universal ISOFIX child restraint system according UN Regulation No. 129.

All i-Size child restraint systems can be used on any vehicle seat suitable for i-Size, i-Size table.

Either a Top-tether strap or a support leg must be used in addition to the ISOFIX brackets.

In addition to the ISOFIX brackets, fasten the Top-tether strap to the Top-tether anchors.

ISOFIX child restraint systems of universal category positions are marked in the table by IUF.

Selecting the right system

The rear seats are the most convenient location to fasten a child restraint system.

Children should travel facing rearwards in the vehicle as long as possible. This makes sure that the child's backbone, which is still very weak, is under less strain in the event of an accident.

Suitable are child restraint systems that comply with valid UN ECE regulations. Check local laws and regulations for mandatory use of child restraint systems.

The following child restraints are recommended for the following weight classes:

  • Group 0, Group 0+: Maxi Cosi Cabriofix with or without ISOFIX base for children up to 13 kg
  • Group I: Duo Plus with ISOFIX and Top-tether for children from 9 kg to 18 kg
  • Group II, Group III: Kidfix XP with or without ISOFIX for children from 15 kg to 36 kg

Ensure that the child restraint system to be installed is compatible with the vehicle type.

Ensure that the mounting location of the child restraint system within the vehicle is correct, see following tables.

Allow children to enter and exit the vehicle only on the side facing away from the traffic.

When the child restraint system is not in use, secure the seat with a seat belt or remove it from the vehicle.


Do not affix anything on the child restraint systems and do not cover them with any other materials.

A child restraint system which has been subjected to stress in an accident must be replaced.
