The difference between the NEW Britax B-Safe 35 and the B-Safe 35 Elite

Britax B-Safe 35 vs. B-Safe 35 Elite

All hail Britax’s brand new car seat family! The B-safe 35 and B-safe 35 elite have finally arrived! These new seats feature everything we love about Britax’s original B-safe, plus everything we could have dreamed of! New features include…..

  • A streamlined design to better fit in any make or model of vehicle
  • A larger canopy to better protect your little one from harsh sunlight
  • The same safe-cell impact protection we love in Britax’s convertible car seats.
  • A newly designed safe-cell integrated base is designed to absorb forward-moving energy and compress during the event of a crash to keep your little one safe and secure.

So, what makes the B-safe 35 Elite, well, elite?

  • The B-safe 35 Elite possesses the same qualities as the B-safe 35, but includes complete side impact protection. This feature is designed to protect your infant’s sensitive head and neck during a crash.
  • The Elite also has a no-rethread harness, making adjusting the shoulder harness to suit your growing child a breeze!

So, there you have it! Come in and check out Britax’s new car seat family today!

    Are the b safe 35 & b safe 35 elite car seat bases interchangeable between the 2 models?

  • Bibs and Binkies

    Hey Amy! Britax did make some modifications on the body style of the new B-Safe 35 and Elite and it does create more of a “cocoon” (AKA “smoosh”) effect on the child. The additional side impact protection, especially on the Elite, cradles the child and diverts more of the crash forces away from the child. There is less ability for the child’s head to move side to side in a collision. They also increased the weight limit so the new B-safe 35s are compatible for children from 4-35 lbs (old b-safes are up to 30lbs) and 32", so they actually last longer! Let us know if you have any other questions!

    I had the old B Safe with my son and love the updates they made! I read some reviews that this seat is much more narrow than the older ones and some babies were smooshed at a young age. Have you noticed this as a problem? Are babies outgrowing this seat quicker than with the older one?

    We totally agree Kristen! Side impact is incredibly important. The Britax B-safe 35 Elite is a great car seat! You will love it :). Feel free to browse our car seat selection at

    Side impact protection on car seats is so important. People don’t realize how little protection is available in a cheap car seat! I am getting the Britax B-safe 35 Elite for my baby.
