2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray: Child Seat Practicality

March 19, 2014

2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray

Technically, there's no reason one can't install a child seat in the front of the 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray. Practically, there are a few reasons.

Mounting in the front seat means there are neither LATCH fasteners nor a top tether. Sensors in the front seat do disable the passenger-side airbag. Even so, I've never loved securing a child seat with the seatbelt alone as it always feels less secure than using LATCH fasteners and a top tether.

I'm with speednet. Kids are safest in back, period. If a two seater is your daily driver and your family has a baby, it is probably time to set the ego aside and at least have a second car that is more sensible.

Why on Earth would someone even *consider* installing a child seat in a 2-seat sports car?! Can't we please have some decent reviews here? Everything is a 2-sentence captain-obvious statement.
