The MARATHON also incorporates BRITAX Side Impact Protection, offers a no-rethread and quick-adjust five-point harness, multiple buckle and recline adjustments, and an easy-remove cover that also allows access to belt paths from the front of the seat. A head and body pillow is provided for extra comfort and infant positioning.

Features

  • Base with SafeCell Technology® features SafeCells designed to compress in a crash, significantly lowering the center of gravity and counteracting the forward rotation of the child seat which normally propels the child toward the front seat
  • Integrated Steel Bars strengthen the connection to the vehicle and reduce forward flexing of the child seat during a crash
  • Energy Absorbing Versa-Tether® features a staged-release tether webbing to slow the forward movement, reducing the crash forces reaching the child, and a two-point attachment to minimize forward rotation while anchoring the top of the child seat
  • Side Impact Protection comprised of deep side walls lined with energy-absorbing EPP foam distributes crash forces, shields from vehicle intrusion, and contains the head, neck and body
  • Harness Ultra Guard System (HUGS™ provides resistance to forward movement in the event of a crash

    Comments about Britax Marathon G4 Convertible Car Seat - Kiwi:

    This is our second purchase of the exact same car seat because we love it so much--we decided to just buy one for the second car instead of switching it back and forth. We had a prior Marathon model, and there have definitely been some design improvements that we love.

    1. The LATCH buckle has been redesigned so that whether you put the seat front or rear facing, the strap doesn't get all twisted.

    2. No need to re thread the shoulder straps as your child gets older--just adjust the back up and down. This is also useful to put my older son in without having to make labor-intensive adjustments if he sits in the seat.

    3. If you have to use the car seatbelt to secure the car seat, there is a flap that you just lift up that helps you feed the belt through the back of the seat, instead of trying to fish the belt through small holes in the back of the car seat from either side.

    4. The reclining options make the seat look so much more comfortable for the kids when they fall asleep. In other car seats, it's too upright and my sons' heads always hang down when they fall asleep in the car, which looks painful sometimes.

    5. The crotch buckle pad has been somewhat permanently fixed to the buckle, so it stays in place everytime, versus the old one that was removable--that was always on the floor instead of padding my son's crotch.

    6. The fabric of the car seat seems more wipeable/cleanable because it seems more liquid resistant.

    As for cons--the convertibility of the car seat from 5-65 pounds rear and front facing is nice, but I will still use my infant car seat that has the removable base so I can just click her in and out of the car since newborns always fall asleep in the car. I wouldn't say it's a con specific to this car seat, but a con for convertible seats for newborns in general.

    I wish there were more color options. Black was too hot for us, and there was pink and cow, so we have two green ones. Very minor issue compared to all the great features of this car seat.

    This car seat is also pretty heavy, if you're transporting it around; but it also feels very sturdy, so I can't complain too much about that.

    Overall, we love this car seat and decided it was worth the extra money because of the ease of installing it in cars. We have also had an Eddie Bauer toddler seat (our least favorite), and a Graco infant seat (no complaints), and the Britax Frontier which we also like, but have an older model also. One thing about the Britaxes is they are not skinny, so there's hardly any room in my crossover between the Frontier and the Marathon for a full sized adult to sit. And definitely no room to put the infant car seat in when #3 comes along. Will have to move one to the 3rd row.

    Comments about Britax Marathon G4 Convertible Car Seat - Kiwi:

    I really wanted to love this car seat because the kiwi color is fantastic and I had read such good things about the Marathon, but I ultimately exchanged it for a Chicco Nextfit (the same price) because:
    1. The high sides combined with a higher base made the space for settling my little guy rear-facing in my Honda Fit was really tiny - I was worried I'd smack his head off the door frame daily (the Nextfit sits lower, leaving more space in the door).
    2. I would have needed a pool noodle or towel to get the Marathon leveled correctly rear-facing, which isn't convenient for switching vehicles (the Nextfit has 9 recline settings vs the Marathon's 3, plus it has a leveling bubble to let you know it's at the correct angle, vs the Marathon's line sticker).
    3. My tall baby would only be able to stay rear-facing until his head reached 1" below the top of the Marathon's shell (He could potentially last until 49" tall rear-facing in the Nextfit).

    In the end, the only thing I liked better about the Marathon was it's color. It's a nice car seat, but I preferred the Nextfit's options.
