Brand Story

Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

ClickTight feature provides excellent installation in vehicles forward and rear facing. Dual range recline indicator. No rethread harness.
Versatile, mid-price option that offers 14 adjustable positions - from baby to toddlers years. Offers the brand's impressive ClickTight installation system and superior safety features.
It earned higher scores for quality and comfort, as well as ease of use and installation.
The Boulevard ClickTight is the Marathon, plus better HUGS pads (with SafeCell) and deeper head wings with True Side Impact Protection AND a “safe and snug indicator,” which is awesome for people who are notorious for not tightening the harness enough! (like… everyone in the world).
This seat offers a new installation technology that Britax has dubbed—you guessed it—“Clicktight.” This was introduced to make installation easier when using a seat belt, something that more parents are having to do sooner, given the new LATCH Regulations.
Britax reputation for safety, quality, reliability, and support, Made in USA, Good for tall kids, Decent overall weight range (5-65 pounds), No-rethread harness, Double side impact protection, Steel-reinforced frame, EPP energy-absorbing foam, Superior crash test performance, SafeCell technology, Approved for air travel, Comfortable, Easy to install ClickTight technology.
Generous height and weight limits for rear-facing and forward-facing. Super easy seatbelt installation with ClickTight System. ClickTight also acts as a built-in lockoff device so you don’t need to understand the pre-crash locking features of your vehicle seatbelt. No-rethread harness makes it easy to adjust the harness height when your child has a growth spurt or when you need the seat for another kid. Harness straps are thick and not prone to twisting.
New parents need all the extra reassurance they can’ll always know when the harness is just right, thanks to the Click & Snug indicator, which makes a trusty click sound when it’s been properly tightened.

What reviewers didn't like

ClickTight feature can be difficult to open when removing seat. Also, heavy seat.
Straps are somewhat challenging to adjust, especially when securing chubby babies. Straps can be loose for very small newborns.
It has a lower crash test safety score than a few of the Britax options we tested.
The two knocks on this seat were the weight limitations (around 30 pounds) and the space it took up in the car. The added width and length made us move our front seats up about an inch more than we had to with our pick, and it was definitely encroaching on our elbow room.
No booster mode, Big and heavy, No cup-holder, Old-style LATCH connectors, Rear-facing limited to 40 pounds, Expensive (about $300).
LATCH un-installation can be a real challenge. Heavy and bulky. Limited rear-facing leg room for older children near the upper limits of the seat. Crotch buckle is on the shorter side. Newborn recline angle may be difficult to achieve in some vehicles without a pool noodle.
All those extra safety features mean extra weight, so this isn’t the seat you want to lug from car to car. Your backseat will most likely only fit the Boulevard and one other person or car seat.
