Britax Frontier 85 Car Seat Review


Faith and Family Reviews received the following Britax Frontier 85 Car Seat in exchange for writing a review. While we consider it a privilege to receive products to review, our reviews are our honest opinion and thoughts of the product.

When I think of the Britax brand, I think of quality and safety. I have read many positive things about Britax car seats. That is why when we were in need of a new car seat for our youngest son I wanted to try the Britax Frontier 85 Car Seat.

Britax Frontier 85 Car Seat

The Britax Frontier 85 Car Seat has these features that I liked and desired:

– Five-point Harness for up to 85 lbs – I have a little escapee and he has not and cannot escape this!
– True Side Impact Protection – extra cushion (see Britax’s website for complete description of this feature.)
– Extra cushion on harness and seat itself – it’s comfy – though my son has yet to say so! ;)
– It converts to a two a lap belt booster seat for children weighing 40 lbs to 120 lbs.

Our Britax Frontier 85 Car Seat Review

We really like the Britax Frontier 85 Car Seat. I like the darker colors of camel and black to hide the dirt more easily. I appreciate the fact that the seat cover is washable. I love the five-point harness and the fact that my son cannot get out of it!


Our son is very proud of his new seat as you can tell from the photos below.



Typically, he puts up a fuss before being strapped in. However, with the Britax Frontier 85 Car Seat, he loves climbing in it and tries to fasten the straps himself. We haven’t heard any fussing or complaints from him about how the straps feel, or how “hard” the car seat itself is, as he has done with our previous car seat.


Overall, the Britax Frontier 85 is both child and parent friendly. The two cup holders are sturdy and a nice added feature. The car seat itself is from a trusted, worthy brand, and both my husband are really pleased with it.
