"Sturdy and comfortable but a pain to fit…"
After much research we decided rearfacing is safer for the under threes and after more research chose the maxway for our peugeot 308, as well as the wedge to improve recline.
Looks like an oversized infant carrier and feels nice and sturdy in the car (behind passenger). It does need quite a bit of room and the passenger seat is now as far forward and as upright as it can go. Neither of us are short! It is doable though.
Ds (19mo) looks very comfy in his new seat and fell asleep no problem. Nice secure five point harness and easy to lift him in and out. Nice amount of legroom and space for his legs to hang down between the carseat and back seat (when they grow!).
Main drawback is how fiddly and time consuming it is to fit though, especially having used a one-click infant seat for so long! I strongly advise watching the installation video on the britax website as the manual isn't too clear. The main issue is getting the seatbelt as taught as possible before 'locking off'. A bit of help from a friend though and we were set. I wouldn't want to have to move this seat very often though.
Overall I'm very happy with our purchase and hopefully it'll last ds for a few years.Read moreLess
