How are all the Britax Rear-Facing Infant Car Seats Different?
A Comparison Between the Britax B-Safe 35, Endeavours, B-Safe Ultra and the NEW Gen2 series.
Britax is a great company, as well as one of my favorites, and they always tend to stay on top of their game. In the past few years, they’ve phased out of some great seats (like the 35 Elite), however, they’ve introduced new ones too. Most recently, they launched the Gen2 series of Britax rear-facing infant car seats. It features the Gen2, Gen2 FlexFit+ as well as the Gen2 FlexFit. As a result, I think it’s safe to assume the “older” line will be discontinued and replaced with the Gen2’s.
There are TONS of similarities but also several changes in each one that help set them apart. I’ve compiled a few easy-to-navigate charts to help you see what the differences and similarities are so you can narrow down which Britax rear-facing infant seat is best for you and your family.
