Which one is better? Skyline or Highpoint

Britax Highpoint and Midpoint are better models than the Skyline model because they come with advanced features. However, the difference in price is about $50 or more. So, you can decide whether to spend the extra money on the Highpoint and Midpoint models or to go for the cheaper one which will still do its purpose well

Britax Skyline has good side impact protection and is easy to install in almost any car. It does not have some of the advanced features found on Highpoint and Midpoint like adjustable head support, harnessing height adjustment, and also the SecureGuard clip that keeps a child’s harness from getting between a car seat and the vehicle seat. However, it is a good model for the price you pay and can do its job well.

Skyline vs Skyline 2

  • Securing straps: Skyline model has two different strap types while the Skyline 2 model has one strap type only. Skyline has no adjustable head support while this feature is available on the Skyline 2 model
  • Harness release button: Skyline has a push button that is located on the side of the seat and Skyline 2 has a button on the front section
  • Buckle and belt guides: The buckle and belt guides on this model (Skyline) are different from those on the Skyline 2 model. For example, the now harness release buttons at both sides of the car seat is now located at the front section for easier access

Britax Skyline vs Chicco Kidfit vs Sunshine Kids Radian 65

  • Carrying handle: The Chicco Kidfit has a carry handle while the other two models do not have this feature

Sunshine Kids Radian 65 has multiple color options to choose from but they are not as bright as those of Skyline.
