difference in boulevards?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have a britax boulevard for my ds who is almost 3. I am expecting another baby this summer and was looking to get another, but now there are two of them. Does anyone know what the differences between the regular boulevard and the boulevard cs are? thanks!

I don't remember the difference, but my son has a Boulevard. If I were buying a new car seat today, I'd buy something else with a higher RF weight limit, like a Graco Myride or one of the Radians. He's still RF, but hey, there are better options now!

Also, newborns don't typically fit in the Blvd.

A newborn won't fit in the Boulevard unless you have some humongous kiddo.

Is your 3 year old Ffacing or Rfacing? If Ffacing, why not look into something like a Nautilus for him when it comes time to put the new baby in the Boulevard? You'd get more for your money that way, because when your 3 year old outgrows the Boulevard you may still need another harnessing seat - the Nautilus on the other hand will harness him now and then convert to a booster later.

I've been researching car seats for my almost 3 yo too. Just to answer your question though, from what I can tell the main difference they advertise is the CS has a push button harness adjustment rather than a knob, enhanced side impact protection over standard and it looks like the seat width is an inch wider while the overall width is 1 inch more narrow. The weight limits look to be the same though.

The only difference is that the harness is supposed to click when it's "safe" -- some users report that it clicks too soon. They both have a ratcheting adjuster, not a push button or a knob. There is no difference in the shells, seats, or wings.
