Britax Boulevard 70 CS Convertible Car Seat Description

Improvements from Boulevard CS:

  • Increased rear-facing weight limit from 35 lbs to 40 lbs
  • Increased forward-facing weight limit from 65 lbs to 70 lbs

  • Lined with a more durable energy-absorbing EPP Foam, as opposed to EPS Foam which is generally more brittle
  • Lower center of gravity to minimize impact in the event of a crash
  • New safety features including SafeCell™ Technology and Integrated Steel Bars
  • More range in height for harness slots to accommodate smaller children better
  • Multiple crotch strap positions
  • Slightly more compact with a smaller footprint
  • Anti-slip, contoured base grips and protects the vehicle seat

The Britax Boulevard 70 CS (Click & Safe) prevents one of the most common car seat misuses: inadequately tightened harness straps. With a weight limit of 70 lbs, it’s important to know your infant or toddler is adequately strapped into this high capacity convertible car seat. With the Boulevard 70 CS from Britax, you pull the harness tight until you hear two clicks that let you know the straps are just right.


Standout Features:

  • Equipped with the Click & Safe® Snug Harness Indicator to let you know when the harness is tightened to the safest, most snug position
  • True Side Impact Protection designed with an extra layer of EPP energy-absorbing foam to keep the head, neck and spine aligned
  • Lower center of gravity to increase stability and minimize impact in the event of a crash
  • Quick-adjust, no re-thread harness and two-position adjustable crotch strap
  • Innovative safety features including SafeCell Technology and Integrated Steel Bars

  • Accommodates children up to 40 lbs rear-facing and 70 lbs forward-facing

Benefit for You: Parents feel more at ease knowing the harness is appropriately tightened with the Click & Safe Snug Harness Indicator of the Boulevard 70 CS. The no re-thread harness also makes for hassle-free adjusting of the quick-adjust harness, which easily repositions the harness shoulder height without having to uninstall and reinstall the seat. The crotch strap is also adjustable to give growing tots the most comfortable fit, and the front harness adjuster allows you to easily tighten or loosen the harness system.

Keep the plush fabrics of your Boulevard 70 CS looking good as new with the easy-to-remove, washable cover. The contoured base features an anti-slip grip to protect your vehicle seat from the wear and tear that can occur over time. For your convenience, the Boulevard 70 CS features harness holders to keep the harness straps out of the way while placing your child in the seat.

Installation: Install the Boulevard 70 CS rear-facing from 5-40 lbs, and forward-facing from at least 1-year-old and 20 lbs, up to 70 lbs. The Boulevard 70 CS can be installed using either your vehicle’s seat belts or LATCH. The contoured base with anti-slip grip offers optimum vehicle fit, and the rear- and forward-facing recline creates the proper angle for a perfect fit in all types of vehicle seats.

The Boulevard’s LATCH system provides a quick, simple and tight installation, and the premium lower LATCH connectors feature a push button for easy release. For added stability, use the top tether to anchor your seat in both the rear- and forward-facing positions. If you install the Boulevard 70 CS using LATCH, you’ll be happy to know you won’t have to re-thread the LATCH connectors through the car seat when you move it from rear-facing to forward-facing.

The guided belt path allows you to easily route your vehicle’s seat belt through the Boulevard 70 CS. The belt path is positioned at the front of the Britax seat back, and is easily accessible through the seat fabric. The built-in lock-offs ensure a snug and secure lap and shoulder belt installation with minimal effort. 


Benefits for Baby: The Boulevard 70 CS ensures the safest, most snug harness fit for young infants. Simply pull the harness tight until you hear two clicks that let you know the straps are just right. Like the Boulevard 70, the Boulevard 70 CS is designed for rear-facing use with little ones from 5-40 lbs, and forward-facing use with children at least 1-year-old and 20 lbs, up to 70 lbs. The 5-point safety harness easily adjusts to accommodate children of different heights, and the two-position crotch strap adjusts for growing tots.

Safety aside, the Boulevard 70 CS also comes with great comfort features. Lined with high density comfort foam and covered with plush fabrics, the extra layer of padding and soft outer material will keep your little one comfy cozy on long rides and road trips. For smaller infants, Britax offers an Infant Positioning Insert, sold separately, to achieve the most snug fit possible of the harness. If you want a place to keep your little one’s sippy cup, Britax Child Cup Holder’s are sold separately. 

Safety:

  • Click & Safe® Snug Harness Indicator which essentially makes a “click” sound when the harness is tightened to the safest, most snug position for your passenger
  • SafeCell™ Technology is a honeycomb-like component inside the base of the seat designed to compress upon impact reducing the forward motion of the child seat, therefore reducing the risk of head and neck injuries

  • Integrated Steel Bars strengthen the connection to the vehicle and reduce forward flexing of the child seat during a crash
  • Patented, Energy-Absorbing Versa-Tether® features a staged-release tether webbing to slow the forward movement, reducing the crash forces reaching the child, and a two-point attachment to minimize forward rotation while anchoring the top of the child seat
  • True Side Impact Protection offers a head restraint creating an extra layer of energy-absorbing EPP foam, keeping the head, neck and spine “in true” or aligned, and deep side walls lined with EPP foam to distribute crash forces, shield from vehicle intrusion, and contain the head, neck and body
  • Harness Ultra Guard System (HUGS™) provides resistance to forward movement in the event of a crash
  • 5-point harness
  • Meets or exceeds FMVSS 213

Comparison: The Britax Boulevard 70 is essentially the same car seat as the Boulevard 70 CS, just without the Click & Safe® Snug Harness Indicator. We believe the Click & Safe Snug Harness Indicator is most beneficial when using the convertible car seat with young infants in the rear-facing position, so if that is not the case with you, we recommend the Boulevard 70. Britax also makes the Advocate 70 CS, which has the same weight capacities and Click & Safe Snug Harness Indicator as the Boulevard 70 CS, but features revolutionary side impact air cushions for added protection to the car seat passenger, and others who may be riding next to the Advocate 70 CS.


Another comparable convertible car seat is the RECARO ProRIDE. The ProRIDE is part of RECARO’s ProSERIES collection of child safety seats, designed with Side Impact Protection to protect the five main vulnerable areas of a child’s body – the head, neck, face, torso and pelvis. The ProRIDE uses EPS energy-absorbing foam, as opposed to the EPP foam in the Boulevard 70 CS, has a 35 lb weight limit in the rear-facing position and is about 2 lbs heavier, but it does feature an adjustable head restraint and slightly lower price tag. 

For those with backseat space in mind, check out the Sunshine Kids Radian XTSL. At 17-inches wide, the Radian XTSL convertible car seat is more narrow than the Boulevard 70 CS, and can fit up to 3 seats across the backseat of most vehicles. The Sunshine Kids car seat features side impact protection and has higher weight capacities at 45 lbs rear-facing and 80 lbs forward-facing. However, the Radian XTSL is taller and almost 10 lbs heavier than the Britax Boulevard 70 CS.
