Takes your child safely through their first years

The First Class Plus combines the benefits of an infant carrier and a forward-facing car seat that grows with your child. In rearward-facing mode, it is suitable for children from birth until 13 kg in weight (approximately 12 to 15 months old), and in forward-facing can be used with infants between 9 and 18 kg in weight (approximately 9 months to 4 years old).

The First Class Plus car seat is ideal for parents or grandparents who want to buy one seat that will be suitable for several years, or for people who transport children of varying ages on a regular basis.

Rearward-facing from birth
Rearward- and forward-facing
The First Class Plus can be used rearward-facing from birth and forward-facing when the child is able to sit upright unaided, providing optimum protection at each stage.

Rearward-facing seats are the safest way for babies to travel, as their bodies are entirely cocooned by the shell of the car seat in this position. In the event of a frontal collision, the risk of injury is greatly reduced as the forces caused by the impact are distributed more evenly over the child's back, and the cervical spine is put under considerable less strain.

In rearward-facing mode, the Britax First Class Plus offers an extended recline position so your baby can lie flat, while a cotton newborn insert with headrest creates a more comfortable sleeping position.

Click & Safe audible safety system
The First Class Plus is fitted with the Click & Safe audible safety system so you know the harness is fitted correctly.
Performance chest pads
Chest pads control movement by spreading impact force evenly over your child's shoulder and chest, whilst providing additional comfort.
Forward-facing from 9 to 18 kg

You should only move to using the forward-facing option once your child is able to sit upright unaided with confidence – don't rush to move your baby into this position, as they can remain rearward-facing up to 13 kg. When they are ready to face forwards, the Britax First Class Plus will provide a safe and comfortable seat for your toddler, with five recline positions that can be adjusted without disturbing them.

The importance of side impact protection

One out of four car accidents is a side collision, and side collisions are responsible for 20% of child car crash fatalities, so all Britax car seats provide side impact protection. The deeply padded side wings of the Britax First Class Plus offer optimum body protection and full head containment. During sleep and rest, they support your child from the sides and help keep them in the correct position. In the event of a side collision, the side wings absorb the crash energy, reducing the impact on your child.

Five-point harness for a secure position

Britax advocates children remaining in a properly positioned five-point harness for as long as possible. The First Class Plus has an integral harness with five attachment points – two at the shoulder, two at the hips, and one between the legs – ensuring your child remains securely in the seat. The harness can be adjusted with one pull.

Fabric choices to suit all tastes

The First Class Plus is fitted with softly padded covers designed for comfort, practicality, and style. The car seat is available in a choice of several covers, and the cover is removable and machine-washable, making it easy to clean.

Spare covers are available separately for the First Class Plus, which you can use when the original is being washed or just to give the seat a new look. For car journeys in hotter weather, you may also want a Summer Cover or a Keep Cool Cover.

Features of the First Class Plus
  • Rearward- and forward-facing car seat
  • Pitch control system reduces forward movement in an accident
  • Performance chest pads for safety and comfort
  • Multiple recline positions – adjusts without disturbing your child
  • Extended recline position and newborn insert create a more natural sleeping position
  • Spring-loaded belt-locking mechanism allows easy installation
  • Side impact protection with deep, softly padded side wings
  • Slim base for a better fit in sculptured seats
  • Two seatbelt routing options in forward-facing mode
  • Harness retainers make it easy to get your child in and out of the seat
  • Quick-remove washable padded cover
  • Three-point seatbelt installation

Why buy a multi-group car seat?

Multi-group car seats are adjustable and grow with the child. Britax has taken multi-group seats to high levels of safety and comfort, so they have become a good choice for many parents, grandparents, and those regularly driving children of varying ages.

For safety reasons, you should keep your child in each car seat stage for as long as possible, until they reach the weight limit or their head reaches the top of the seat. This is especially important for babies, as rearward-facing seats offer the safest way of travelling.

Car seat safety essentials

  • Never buy a second-hand car seat – you can not know its full history, and it may have been damaged in an incident or have parts missing
  • Buy the right car seat for your child's weight – age ranges are just guidelines
  • Move your child up to the next car seat group when they outgrow their current seat, but don't rush to do this too soon
  • Install the seat according to the manufacturer's instructions
  • Always use the car seat, even on very short journeys

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value for money 5 May 2013
Verified Purchase
Overall I would say it was worth to buy one but there are some considerations to take into account when buying one.

I've fitted this car seat rearward facing in a Toyota Auris 2007 for my 6 months old daughter.
I was a bit disappointed about the recline position which is not 100% flat and when she sleeps her head falls on her chest and sideways.
Facing rearward, you may also find it hard to put your baby in as you are obstructed by the seat belt and you'll have about 10 inches space to slip her in through the right door. Most of the time I'll pass her to my wife through the left door as inside there is enough space.
Forward facing will also be a challenge as Toyota thought is a good a idea to have a shorter middle seat belt with different latch system.

Aside from this we're happy with this car seat and the monkey seems to like it.

Perfectly suits our car (BMW 3), and our 1 year-old son loves to sit and sleep in it. We are still using it rearward facing, our son is 77 cms high but there's enough space for his legs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fab! 23 Dec 2013
By holly

Really love this, the only downside to it I would say is when it is rearfacing the belt goes over the car seat so it's a bit of a baby acrobatics to try get baby in the seat without banging her head on the car, but it's a thing I'm defo willing to put up with.

The car seat it great, wish I had bought it in a different colour.
It's a little bulky for a small car...not to tricky to fix in either.
Overall a great product and baby loves it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Safe Car Seat for Baby 9 May 2013
Verified Purchase
Having done a lot of research on car safety for babies, I decided to buy this particular brand and was not disappointed.
It allows me to have the baby sitting rear facing for as long as possible according to the weight limits, after which it can be turned into a forward facing seat. It is very comfortable for a baby to sit in and is easy to fit into the car. I would recommend this to other mothers if they want a safe, reliable car seat with the flexibility of rear/forward facing options.
