The Britax Advocate ClickTight convertible car seat is one of the best-selling car seats on the market today due to its high safety rating, ease of installation, and comfort. The car seat is a great option for parents looking to have a rear-facing infant car seat that transforms (hence the name “convertible” car seat) into a front-facing toddler car seat. It’s economical and great for parents who are planning to have more than one child, too, as one child’s infant car seat can serve as the second child’s toddler car seat when the oldest child transitions to a booster seat.
Parents love the Britax Advocate for a multitude of reasons. The Advocate convertible car seat comes with Britax’s Patented ClickTight Installation System, which makes car seat installation a breeze (something you may not realize you want as a first-time parent, but something you’ll very much love if you know how difficult some car seats are to transfer between cars). The securely installed Advocate car seat means one thing: increased safety. Beyond fitting perfectly into your vehicle, the Advocate also comes with safety features such as easy-read level indicators, full body-side impact protection, and a steel frame. Additionally, parents love the simple seat-belt installation, the aircraft certification, and the comfort of the Advocate.
The Britax Marathon, Boulevard, and Advocate are all similar car seats, featuring the ClickTight installation system, steel frame, 14-position no-rethread quick-adjust harness, and impact-absorbing base.
The differences between the Marathon, Advocate, and Boulevard mostly come down to the layers of side-impact protection. Don’t be confused--all of the Britax convertible car seats are well past US car seat safety standards. It’s just that once the standard safety requirements are surpassed, Britax goes further to create even safer car seats. The Marathon is the base model, followed by the Boulevard, and then the Advocate. The Advocate comes with three layers of side impact protection, which is Britax’s superior protection option.
The Boulevard comes with additional padding to make it ultra-comfortable for your child, which is why the Boulevard is generally the more expensive option.
While providing remarkable safety in a car accident is a huge selling point, Britax didn’t stop when it came to creating a comfortable and stylish car seat as well. The Advocate is a great-looking convertible car seat that measures 20.5" W x 23.5" H x 23" D. It weighs 30.6 lbs. and is designed for children 5-65 pounds. It comes in multiple colors and styles, with Britax refreshing their selections at different times. Some of our favorite color options include the Albee Baby exclusive Limelight, the dark look of the Mosaic, the vintage retro look of the Venti, and the Otto’s grey and black evergreen good looks.
Britax Advocate ClickTight Convertible Car Seat expires 10 years after the date of manufacture.
The Britax Advocate is a great option for parents who are interested in a car seat that works from birth up until your child is older and ready to move into a booster seat. Starting at 5 pounds, the Advocate is perfect for bringing home your new baby from the hospital. Furthermore, it stays rear-facing for up to 40 pounds, which is great (keeping your child rear-facing as long as safely and comfortably possible is the safest option for your child). The seat then transforms to a front-facing car seat, giving your growing toddler the chance to look out of the windows while you travel the country.
What’s not to love about three layers of side-impact protection added to one of the safest car seats in the world? From comfort to protection, we recommend the Advocate as one of the top choices you should explore when buying a convertible car seat for your child.
