I am very happy with this car seat in terms of safety it has all the current safety features. The recline option was excellent for out newborn baby especially for us as we are out in the country so we do a lot of travelling. The sun and wind shade is sturdy and practical and really blocks out the sunlight for the baby. The cover is easy to remove and wash. It is very easy to put on and off our Britax buggy even with one hand.
It is a little bit large and cumbersome and heavy to carry around, you need to check it will fit if you have a small car especially if you want to use an Isofix base. The handle is badly designed and is easily pulled too far forward which Britax have acknowledged can lead to cracking which has in a few cases lead to the handle breaking free from the carrier. It is also limited to using a Britax pushchair if you want to use it as part of a travel system. The Britax Baby-Safe Plus is snug for safety however the baby starts to look squashed at 4 months and can no longer wear a jacket in the car in cold weather. The material tends to make the baby sweaty. Plus, I personally don’t feel that the seat is as stylish as some other brands on the market although safety is the main priority.
Safety factor in the car is excellent however too many niggles for me.
