BRITAX Car Seat Features
The ultimate job of a car seat is to minimize injury to your child during a crash. Injury can be caused by a number of things including:
- intruding objects making contact with your child,
- your child hitting something in the vehicle, such as the back of the front seat, or
- your child’s body coming to a sudden halt.
Any part of your child’s body can become injured during a crash, however, head injury is the leading cause of vehicle crash-related deaths for children ages 0-12 years*. Your child’s head should always be protected to avoid serious and permanent injury.

Quality is synonymous with BRITAX products. That means maximum safety, high levels of comfort and easy-to-use features. In addition to our best-in-class safety technology, we know ergonomically designed products with soft, comfortable materials really do add to safety, especially on longer journeys.
BRITAX 360 Degree Protection
At BRITAX we have developed ground-breaking technologies that work to minimize injury to your child during a crash from any direction, including both frontal and side impact crashes – the most frequent types of crashes.
These technologies work together with other child restraint features, such as a 5-point harness, to minimize injury to your child during a crash by:
keeping your child in the vehicle,
diverting crash forces away from your child,
helping to slow down your child’s body,
minimizing movement of your child, and
protecting your child’s brain and spinal cord.

BRITAX Fit & Comfort
We also understand the importance of proper fit, both seat-to-vehicle and child-to-seat, and how it relates to minimizing injury to your child during a crash. A safe car seat is one that fits your vehicle, fits your child, and is easy to use each and every time. If your child is not comfortable in the seat then they will not want to sit in it; this not only leaves your child vulnerable to injury, but creates additional stress on the driver.

We know that for many parents, their child’s car seat is something that will be used each and every day, and that’s why it is so important that the seat be easy to use. A safe seat is one that is easy to use each and every time. At BRITAX we spend countless hours talking to and observing parents and caregivers using our car seats. It is because of this research and insight that we’re able to thoughtfully design our products to meet the daily needs of parents and caregivers, incorporating features such as our easy-remove covers, harness holders, and premium lower LATCH connectors.
