Honestly it will be a personal decision.  We just went through the same thing about a month ago and went with Evenflo Sympathy 65 e3.  It has just as good ratings for safety as Britax.  In fact I personally thought it was better because you can go from rear facing to front facing to booster with this one. (goes up to 100 lbs while most Britax only go up to like 70-75 lbs). 

And I just could not justify the cost of Britax (we bought 2 one for each of our vehicles.) We have a SUV and a smaller car and the Evenflo fits fine in both.

Commenting to follow because I’m still tweaking my registry and I don’t really know what makes for a good convertible seat. I’m currently registered for the Britax Marathon 70-G3, but only because I saw it on Amazon and it had good reviews.

I spent hours/days researching, and decided Britax Marathon was the best. We’ve had it almost a month now and absolutely love it. It has some of the best safety ratings- highly recommend it. I think we got it on sale at albeebaby.com along with our Maclaren Quest stroller (also on sale)… not cheap but worth the money!
