What's your budget? Are you lookin to extended harness? Britax frontier is going to harness the longest. If you need a little cheaper graco nautilus is a good option as well.

I was looking into buying Britax Frontier. There is just several different models of the car seat I'm unsure of which one to buy. Right now I have some extra cash I could spend so I am really willing to spend whatever. Does anyone have the link of which model is the best?

I've had this one since my daughter was a year old and love it, it goes up to 100lbs so its the only carseat we'll ever need. I also love that you dont have to unhook the belts in the back to readjust it just turn the handles at the top and slide it up or down.

difference:
Side Impact Cushion Technology features energy-absorbing cushions on the exterior of the child seat to reduce side impact crash energy by 45% by diverting crash forces away from your child and providing extra protection for the adjacent passenger

I didnt see the price difference and im being lazy. If I had the extra I would spend it but I wouldn't stress about it.
