Regent DOES have side impact protection

  • User Rating: Excellent

  • Durability:
  • Ease of Use:

Pros:Safety, comfort, style, length of use, durable cover

Cons:HUGE, no cupholders (WHY can't Britax manage one single decent cupholder?!) 

The Bottom Line: We love this seat. My daughter calls it "The Pink." I call it "The Tank." She never complains about getting into it. I love that she's comfortable and safe.


Despite what several reviewers have claimed, the Regent does in fact have side impact protection. It does not have the side impact wings, but according to the Britax USA website:
Side Impact Protection utilizes the rigid seat shell, lined with energy-absorbing foam, to keep your child’s head and chest protected from the side impact crash forces. More specifically, Side Impact Protection does three things:
Distributes crash forces:
Crash force energy cannot be destroyed; it can only be managed or diverted away from your child. The combination of deep side walls and energy-managing foam allow for a larger surface area to divert crash force energy away from your child during impact.Shields the child from vehicle intrusion:
Again, during a side impact crash, your child could possibly be injured because of the lack of a crumple zone and/or coming into contact with any intruding objects. The seat’s deep side walls create a barrier between your child and any possible intruding objects.Contains the head and body:
A side impact crash does not necessarily result in another vehicle making direct contact with your child, however you still want to keep your child from “rolling” out of the seat and making contact with the vehicle door or window. Here, Side Impact Protection helps to contain your child’s head and body in the seat.
