Seat

The Britax Max-Way Car Seat is a rearward facing seat that extends rearward facing travel for children. Rearward facing travel is the safest way for little ones to travel. The compact shell and smaller seat offers more leg room for children and also makes it ideal for smaller cars.

The 5-point safety harness keeps the child secure and is easy to adjust so that you can make sure that the harness is always at the right height for your child. To make life simple when putting the child in and out of the seat the harness straps can be conveniently stowed away in the harness retainers.

Suitability & Protection

As a Group 1/2 car seat, the Max-Way is designed for children between approximately 9 months to 6 years (or 9kg – 25kg). Rearward facing travel has been proven as the safest way for young children to travel so the Max-Way gives parents the option to have their children rear facing for even longer. The seat has deep side wings that are softly padded offering side impact protection and extended comfort and safety. This reduces the risk of a head injury in a side impact collision.

Installation

Parents are given flexibility when it comes to installing the Britax Max-Way Car Seat in that it can either be installed by 3-point seat belt or 2-point lap belt.
