    Cambria vs Cambria 2

    We're going to need a new HBB before September, when our Frontier 90 expires. I've been looking at the Cambria, but does anyone know yet what makes the Cambria 2 different? Besides the colors

    It's for my daughter who is 7.5 years right now. My kids are tall in the torso, so I'm looking for another tall seat. She's harnessed in the Frontier now, but has about an inch until I need to remove the harness, and she's starting a growth spurt. Also considering the Britax Skyline or Highpoint, I love that clip (have it on the Frontier), but I don't remember facts about the clip with older kids. We do like that the Cambria could also be a LBB, when she's a couple years older.

    This is for use in our 2012 Toyota Sequoia. Sometimes in a 2001 Honda Odyssey.

    Re: Cambria vs Cambria 2

    It looks like the Cambria 2 has some changes to the side wings maybe? Hopefully someone who has had hands on will know for sure.

    The Skyline doesn't have the SG clip. The Midpoint and Highpoint do. The SG clip is always recommended when supplied but never required. The Britax boosters are the tallest on the market. Some kids may not need a backless once they are outgrown but on the other hand larger kids might be more comfortable in a backless.

    Diono also requires head support behind their boosters, while Britax doesn't, so if removable head restraints interfere with fit you can remove them with the Britax boosters but not the Diono. (Though again, pending review of the actual seat, this has been Diono's stance on their previous boosters.)

    Our '02 Odyssey, car seats, and seatbelts saved our lives. Now riding in a '13 Odyssey!
