See video Demo:
Although you may have seen some info on the Cybex Aton car seat that was probably the European model. The US model does have some changes to it to fit US standards.
1. The Base. The Aton Base can be attached quickly and tightly, using either the LATCH system or the vehicle belt. The Aton base has an ingenious BELT TENSIONER, allowing for a tight installation without any physical strenght or struggle. It is one of the most valuable features with the new product. The Aton comes with two Latch Guides included, making installation a breeze.
2. Two items to clarify regarding the Aton Base, US version. The US version will not have the "foot" that is seen on the European model. Also in the driving position, carrier part installed on the base in the car, the carrying handle is to be in the upright position.
3. Regarding the materials used in the Aton, it is built in a supportive way, using all EPS foam, giving good support. The fabric is supersoft and for the newborns (from 4 lb) there is the extra super padded Infant Insert.
Parents will enjoy the light weight, weighing in at 8 lb.
MSRP for Aton with Base and Latch Guiodes, $199.
Base also sold separately for families wanting a Base in each car, $99.
