The Britax Advocate CS will be released this year!!! Most online sites show a shipping date of April for the seat. The cost is more than any of the other Britax seats, by about $100 depending on what site you're looking at. The seat is like that of the Boulevard.

From the Britax website:
Making its pre-launch debut at the All Baby & Child Expo in Las Vegas is the Britax Advocate CS featuring Side Impact Cushion Technology. These patented exterior energy-management cushions compress upon impact to protect both the child and adjacent passengers in the event of a side impact crash. This compression provides an increased level of side impact protection.

Unlike vehicle air bags which inflate, the Advocate side impact cushions are designed to manage the crash forces by compressing upon impact while safely expelling air through strategically positioned vents[/b]
These "air bags" though, will not protect adjacent passengers when the seat is being used in the rear facing position.

I just saw this today when I was browsing the britax site. I love it! Not that I could afford it though lol. I'm wondering how much wider the "air bags" make the seat. Would it be hard to install next to another seat?
