Britax Boulevard 70 Review

Britax Boulevard 70-G3 CavalierPlease note that the Britax Boulevard 70 has now been replaced by the updated Boulevard 70-G3. In view of this i have changed the links inside this post to point to the newer updated version of the seat. The Britax Boulevard 70 is a convertible car seat suitable for children weighing between 5 and 70 pounds. The Britax Boulevard 70 car seat is used rear facing when the child is in the weight range of 5 to 40 pounds and can be used forward facing up to a weight limit of 70 pounds. This seat uses a combination of SafeCell technology, integrated steel bars and energy-absorbing Versa-Tether anchors to protect your baby from the impact received during a car crash coming from any direction. The Britax SafeCell Technology used on the boulevard 70 is comprised of Safe Cells that are designed to compress during a crash and help the car seat to stay in an upright position offering better protection to your child’s head. Steel bars incorporated into the design of the seat keeps the seat rigid during an accident and prevents it tipping forwards. Finally, Versa-Tether webbing straps anchor the baby car seat securely to the car seat and absorb forces generated during the crash helping to reduce the seat tipping forwards. The Britax Boulevard 70 also offers true side crash impact protection due to added side pad cushioning around the head area. The seat is generously padded with high density foam providing a comfortable and secure cocoon for your child to rest in with plenty of padding around the straps which prevents them digging in during long journeys. The harness straps on the Britax Boulevard can also be easily adjusted so you can get the best fit. Infant Inserts are supplied with the seat so that it can grow in capacity, along with your child, and thereby ensure a comfortable fit. The seat can be reclined using a quick-adjust head restraint in both the forward and rear facing positions to provide maximum comfort. There is a choice of several different fabric designs which means that at least one color will coordinate perfectly with your car upholstery, and the seat covers are easily removed for cleaning without having to dissemble the car seat.
