So you want to compare Britax G3 vs G4? As you may noticed Britax updated their line of car seats with a new series called G4. The previous models were called G3 models.
Many parents who want a Britax convertible want to be sure if it is worth to buy a G4 model rather than a G3 model which is slightly cheaper. So here we try to put the differences between these two lines of car seats.
The G4 Britax Convertibles will have:
- Weight limits are now 65 lbs, which are 70 lbs. in previous models, (i.e. Marathon-70 G3, Advocate-70 G3). So weight limit of G4 models is 65 lbs. This, first seems to be a disadvantage but in fact most children reach the height limit before they weigh 70 lbs. so no problems here.
- A new infant insert is designed for G4 family of car seats for children up to 22 lbs.
- The HUGS design is redesigned, now it is more difficult for children to push down.
- The G4 models comes with color-coded to easy identification of car seat type .
So these are the new features, the other features are same for same models. For example Britax Marathon G4 has all the features of Marathon 70-G3, plus new features of G4 seat and weight limit is 65 lbs.
Again Britax Advocate G4 has all the features of Advocate 70-G3, plus new features of G4 line of seats with a weight limit of 65 lbs.
