Britax Infant Car Seats in 2023 – Introduction
If you are looking for the best Britax infant car seat to buy in 2023, you need to look no further than the Britax B-Safe Gen2 product range.
The Britax B-Safe Gen2 range of Infant Car Seats was introduced to the US Market in 2021. The B-Safe Gen2 range of seats effectively replaces, and improves upon, the older B-Safe 35 and B-Safe Ultra series of infant seats.
While the Britax B-Safe Gen2 seats are not an entirely new concept and do not represent a massive change in direction for the company, they do incorporate some re-designed safety and convenience features that will be explained below.
Britax is a very well-known and very well-respected manufacturer of premium child car seats in the USA, and their products should definitely be on your short-list of possible options if you are expecting a new baby in 2023 or beyond.
So, what are the options?
Britax B-Safe Gen2 Infant Car Seats – The 3 Models
There are 3 different models in the new Britax B-Safe Gen2 range of infant car seats to choose from.
The most basic seat is simply called the Britax B-Safe Gen2. This seat comes with plenty of safety and convenience features, but it lacks some of the additional features that can be found on the other 2 seats. It is a great option for those on a tight budget.
The mid-range seat is called the Britax B-Safe Gen2 Flexfit. This seat looks almost identical to the standard Gen2 seat, but has enhanced side impact protection, a European Belt Pathing option, and more flexible harness adjustments.
Finally, the top-of-the-range seat is called the Britax B-Safe Gen2 Flexfit Plus. This seat is exactly the same as the Flexfit option apart from the fact that its base comes fitted with an anti-rebound bar.

So, which is the Best Britax Infant Car Seat to buy in 2023, and why?
The simple and obvious answer is that the Britax B-Safe Gen2 Flexfit Plus is the best Britax Infant seat to buy in 2023.
Perhaps the more important question, however, is which of the Britax B-Safe Gen2 infant car seats is the BEST FOR YOU, and the best for your budget?
As in most things in life, you get what you pay for. The Flexfit and Flexfit Plus models definitely benefit from significant safety and convenience upgrades, but only you can decide whether or not those upgrades are both affordable and important to you.
The easier and more versatile shoulder harness adjustments that are possible with the Flexfit and Flexfit Plus models will be important to some, but it is perfectly possible to get a good harness fit and to make the adjustments within a reasonable amount of time with the standard Gen2 model.
The additional layer of side impact protection found on the Flexfit and Flexfit Plus models will provide extra peace of mind to some, but others will be content with the fact that the standard Gen2 model exceeds all of the relevant federal safety standards.
Finally, the European Belt Pathing option found on the Flexfit and Flexfit Plus seats will be an absolute must have option for those who need to switch the seat regularly between different vehicles and don’t want to have to move the seat base each time or have to purchase multiple extra seat bases. If the seat is only going to installed in a single vehicle with a fixed base, then this option is totally unnecessary.
