Video: Comparing the Nuna AACE v. Britax Highpoint

Stuck between two booster seats? Check out this video for a rundown of the similarities and differences between the Nuna AACE and the Britax Highpoint!

Let’s start off with what they have in common. 

  • Both boosters have a multi-position headrest, plus added Side Impact Protection on the sides of the shell. The Highpoint has 3 layers for extra coverage, and the AACE’s side impact protection pods pop out manually.
  • They both have dual armrests to keep things comfy.
  • Each booster seat has high quality fabric and a modern design.
  • They each have a lap and shoulder belt path marked in red to make it easy to make sure your child is buckled correctly.
  • They each have a No Back Mode to use as your child gets older. Simply push down on the backrest of each to remove it. One bonus of the AACE is that it includes an attachable seat belt positioner for kids whose shoulders don’t quite reach high enough.

Now let’s go over the differences between these two booster seats:

  • The AACE has a single cup holder that can attach to either side, while the Highpoint has one on each side. These are removable and dishwasher safe.
  • The Highpoint has a crotch strap belt positioner to keep the lap belt resting comfortably across your child’s thighs, which is a feature the AACE doesn’t have.
  • The AACE does have some bonus adjustments though—its shoulder area expands as the headrest is raised, and the seat cushion also has three depth settings.
  • In High Back Mode, the Highpoint has a broader weight range, but the AACE can be used by shorter children.
  • They each have a LATCH system to secure them to the vehicle seat, but the AACE has rigid lower connectors that rotate out of the base, whereas the Highpoint has flexible ones that release with a button. Overall, these LATCH systems operate very similarly in terms of attaching the lower connectors and tightening them so the booster is flush with the vehicle seat.
  • In terms of price, the Britax Highpoint is $40 cheaper than the Nuna AACE.

Overall, both of these booster seats are pretty similar. Your choice may honestly just come down to the type of LATCH system you prefer!
