As some have already noticed on Amazon.com and the Britax USA website,  there are a couple more new products, starting with the new 2013 Britax Parkway SG and 2013 Parkway SGL!  It has an updated look, with deeper head wings and enhanced side wings reminiscent of the old Britax Monarch booster.  It will also incorporate the Britax SafeCell technology in the base and has an improved SecureGuard clip.  The ratings and limits are mostly the same as the current model.  The MSRP will be $159.99 for the SGL version with LATCH, and $129.99 for the SG version.

The BRITAX PARKWAY® SGL Belt-Positioning BoosterSeat offers premium safety, comfort and convenience for your big kid.

This booster seat incorporates BRITAX’s leading safety innovations, including
one of BRITAX’s Head Safety technologies, a base engineered with SafeCells. The Base with SafeCell Technology® is designed to keep your child safe and secure in a crash by compressing and significantly lowering the center of gravity, reducing the forward movement of the car seat. The ISOFLEX® Flexible Lower LATCH Connection System allows for an easy installation in seconds from either side of the booster seat with only two clicks and a pull.

This system not only secures the booster seat to the vehicle, but also stabilizes it during a crash, preventing it from becoming a projectile when not in use. The PARKWAY® SGL also features SecureGuardTM anti-submarining technology and industry leading True Side Impact Protection® now with deep, high side walls lined with energy-absorbing EPS foam to protect your child.

Comfort and convenience features include a quick-adjust head restraint, retractable cupholders, comfort foam and an easy-remove cover.

We can also finally share some details about a seat we inadvertently mentioned (sorry!) in the launch of the Britax Frontier 90 and Pinnacle 90.  It’s their third new combination-to-booster seat, the Britax Pioneer 70.  In a nutshell, the Pioneer 70 has lower height and weight limits than the Frontier 90 and Pinnacle 90.  For example, the top seated shoulder height for harness mode is around 18.5″ tall, about 2 inches less than the Frontier/Pinnacle models.  It also lacks the innovative ClickTight installation system found on those two models.  It does include the Britax SafeCell technology and a front adjustable harness system, but perhaps the main benefit is the much more competitive price point, around $229.99 MSRP.  So, probably well under $200 at retail!  Kecia will have a first look at the Pioneer 70 in about a week.

PIONEER™ 70

Britax Pioneer 7070 lb Harness-2-Booster™

Harness Mode: 2 Years and 25 lbs, up to 70 lbs

The BRITAX PIONEER™ 70 Combination Harness-2-Booster Seat offers premium safety, comfort and convenience for your growing child that is ready to graduate from their convertible car seat.

The PIONEER™ 70 incorporates BRITAX’s leading safety innovations, including their patented Head-Safety technologies such as: Base with SafeCell Technology®, Integrated Steel Bars, and Energy Absorbing Versa-Tether®. These components work together to protect your child’s head by minimizing forward movement during a frontal impact. The PIONEER™ 70 also protects your child during side impact crashes thanks to its True Side Impaction Protection®. This level of side impact protection incorporates deep side walls and a head restraint lined with EPS foam to shield and divert crash forces away from your child while keeping the head, neck and body aligned or “in true.” The Tangle-Free, Five-Point Harness contains your child and distributes crash forces across the strongest parts of the body.

Comfort and convenience features include: an open, easy-access belt path; a quick-adjust, no-rethread harness; front-adjust recline; integrated cup holders and storage; multiple buckle positions; fixed armrests; easy transition from harness to booster mode, comfort foam; and an easy-remove cover.
