Is Britax still the best brand for car seats?

Britax Marathon Convertible Car SeatBritax is still extremely popular and has a well-deserved great reputation! We're especially enamored of their recent Clicktight convertible car seats and boosters, which utilize a belt-tensioning plate for a quick, easy, and CORRECT installation. Correct car seat installation is a must, and anything that makes it easier to get it right gets an A+ from us.


With that said, there are some fantastic innovations available from other brands, and we hope you’ll check them out – for instance, the steel frames in Diono seats and the REACT system in the Clek Foonf convertible car seat. If you're looking for an infant car seat, you may also want to check out the Nuna Pipa, the Cybex Aton Q, or the Cybex Cloud Q, which all add a load leg for additional safety.


Also, Britax specializes in car seats, while many other brands only make one convertible car seat model, so they pour every safety and convenience feature into it. Examples include the Peg Perego Primo Viaggio, which has true Side Impact Protection (SIP), as well as assorted other cool features you’ll want to check out.
