Can you carry a baby seat on the smart car?

Can you put a car seat for babies into a smart car or it is only for adults?


Answer: Great question, Claudia! It is generally not recommended to put infant car seats in the front seat of a car, because the risk of injury is higher there when they are still so little, especially with the air bag.

However, smart cars do come equipped with a tether hook for child car seats on the passenger side. So, the answer to your question is YES, you can put a car seat on the passenger seat of a smart car, but it's probably not the best car to carry a small baby in. Better to wait till the child is older and riding in a conventional child car seat.

Hope this helps... Jim, the Smart Car Guy

I was just speaking to someone who owns a 2009 Cabriolet. She said the dealership told her no car seat. Is it just that year or old models? Convertible? Do you have any idea?
