“Here we go again.”

safe comfy easy to fit

none yet

My first child car seat given as a leaving present by my lovely colleagues ,was a Britax club class. The seat was very safe,fitted well and my little boy loved it .I would have used the seat again for my second son if a cretin had not hit our car head on at speed. The car was completely mangled...

“Well worth the extra money”

published 17/09/2001

The best and safest car seat I've come across

Expensive, heavy and thus awkward to transfer

With an infant's well-being at stake, there's really no way that anyone ought to compromise when buying a car seat, so you honestly can't do any better than the Renaissance from Britax. At £150, it's certainly not cheap, but Britax have a global reputation for making quality products which this...

Safe, comfortable looking (!) and easy to recline

Very heavy and cumbersome

At just over £130, this is not a cheap car seat. However Britax do have a reputation, stretching back many years, for producing quality, safe car seats. My parents tell me I had one when I was a bit smaller than I am today! The seat sits the child up high, which enables them to get a better view...

slightly bulky

After a lot of research on the internet, searching shops and finally forcing our local Mothercare staff to traipse back and forwards to the car park with a variety of car seats to try in our car, we decided this one could not be beaten. The safety harness is easy to fasten and tighten and keeps...

Washable covers, very secure when fitted.

Pricey and heavy

Our son was around 8 months when we started looking for his second stage car seat. (second stage means 9-18kg (20-40lbs) approx. 9 months to 4 years) My hubby is very fussy when it comes to car safety so we did quite a bit of looking around and researching car seats before we decided on one. We...

“Out and about”

published 31/08/2006

Looks comfortable

A bit fiddly to fit; heavy; no isofix

A few months ago we got the Britax Renaissance as our porker of a baby had outgrown her Bebe-Confort car seat. We liked the comfy look of the Britax and decided to go for it, which we thought was a roughly mid-priced car seat (but what price is safety?). The seat is quite heavy and a bit fiddly...

“Safety in car seats”

published 17/04/2006

Safe, comfy,

Expensive, bulky, heavy

We recently bought this car seat for our 11 month old daughter, we found it very confusing deciding which one to buy with all the many car seats that are available at varying prices. We visited Mothercare who advised us this was the best one to buy for our cars and situation, however after...

extremely safe, secure and comfortable

expensive and very heavy

When my son grew out of his bucket seat I knew which brand of car seat I would go for as in my mind Britax equates safety. They always come top in safety surveys and their car seats are tested to the limits. The Renaissance is no exception and was well worth the high price. It is a very...

Very comfortable, reclining position is a godsend

None that I can think of

When I came to buying a new car seat for my son I must admit I didn't know where to start. There were so many styles on the market that I didn't know what would be the best. After an extensive search through all the baby shops and the internet I found I was being drawn to the same model each time...

My husband had a good win at the dogs and we decided to go out and buy a new car seat as my little girl was quickly growing out of her 3 in 1 system. He had a good win so money was not a concern and I could buy whatever I wanted. This made me very happy as I was always concerned about getting the...

After reading the latest reports on Child Seats, we chose this one, although it was the most expensive, it was almost the leader in every criteria of a safety check. It's easy to fit, as the instructions have lots of pictures of right and wrong ways to do it! It is rather heavy, which discourages...

Normally £135 but currently £20 off in Mothercare stores and well worth the money I feel. It's difficult to rate car seats because one of the most important aspects is how well it would protect a baby in a crash and that is something which is almost impossible for a consumer to assess...

way too small for a 4 year old

I have purchased this car seat for my 6 months old son as a recomendation from a family member. I must say, it was very easy to install. The main reason we bought this one is because it said that it is suitable for babies from 9 months to 4 years. Now, having the car seat for fa ew months, I have...

I am a mother and childminder and have had a number of car seats, which have to be taken in and out of the car and adjusted frequently. This car seat is one of the easier and most liked, by my children. I also have lent it to a grand parent or friend who may have unexpectidly had to collect a...
