Why We Like It: While this car seat has all of the impressive safety features that are standard in Britax seats, it has also incorporated a new one that puts it a step above the rest: a click-and-safe harness. You no longer have to worry about whether or not your little one is safely secured. A harness indicator makes a click when the straps are adjusted to the perfect fit. This prevents the movement that can lead to injuries during accidents when a car seat is too loose and keeps your child safe and snug.

This car seat is a great choice for parents that are worried about installing the seat correctly (first time parents, we’re looking at you). The click-and-safe harness makes it practically foolproof.

Another great feature is the ability to choose from many different reclining positions. This is helpful in keeping your baby comfortable, but it’s especially important when fitting your car seat in your vehicle. Baby can remain rear-facing longer when the seat can adapt to the individual car, giving you more options and adjustability. Since your child can stay rear facing until 40 pounds, you’ll be able to adjust the seat to make the ride as comfortable as possible.

We also love how simple this seat is to use. Installation can be done easily with your vehicle’s seat belt placed in a specialized compartment that refuses to budge during an accident. While you can still use LATCH connectors, the design of the seat makes this unnecessary. The Boulevard ClickTight does not require re-threading. It allows you to adjust the harness through 14 different positions with the touch of a button.

As far as safety goes, Britax has put in the effort to make sure your little one will be as guarded as possible. A V-shaped tether prevents your baby from rotating while a protective, foam-lined shell minimizes head and side impact. Stitches in the tether are even designed to release slowly to prevent forward movement, while a steel frame absorbs the energy of a crash into the base.

Cons: While the majority of testers found this seat to be a comfortable fit, there are some who felt the straps were too short for their child’s legs. This was generally only the case with bigger or taller children, in which case the company offers an extended length buckle set.

The Britax USA Boulevard ClickTight Convertible Car Seat is a favorite because of the focus on safety, ease of use and super easy installation. This is a great choice for a convertible car seat.
