The Britax Marathon 70 baby car seat is a convertible baby restraint rated for baby 5 pounds to 40 pounds in the rear-facing position and up to 70 pounds in the forward-facing position. Britax Marathon 70 baby car seat has a listed height limit of 49 inc tall but since all baby are proportioned differently, it is possible that it may be outgrown before that listed height limit is reached. Since many of our readers are familiar with the original Britax Marathon model, many of my comments will be comparative.
The new Marathon 70 baby car seat has a deeper seat pan so it will provide more leg room/thigh support than the original. The outer crotch strap position measures 8″ so Marathon 70 baby car seat offers considerably more room in that area than the original model did. The baby car seat side walls are deeper and wider too so that’s a nice improvement as well.
Marathon 70 baby car seat SAFETY feature
Safety is the most important feature of a baby car seat that I can think of. Year in and year out, Britax seems to garner very good ratings from professional publications and consumers alike. The Marathon 70 baby car seat has many safety features that have given previous Marathon’s a “Very Good” rating by Consumer Reports. As of this writing, Consumer Reports has not published any crash test results of the current Marathon 70 baby car seat.
The Marathon 70 baby car seat has good side impact protection, though not the better “True Impact” protection that Britax’s higher end convertible baby car seats have. The only difference between them is described as:
