The Graco Nautilus Elite Group 1-2-3 car seat has the same practicality, popularity and safety features that saw the original Nautilus pick up a GOLD AWARD at the prestigious Practical Parenting Awards 2011 for Best Group 1-2-3 Car Seat and a Bronze in the Mother & Baby Awards 2011. The Nautilus Elite also offers a range of additional features to provide extra safety and protection whilst ensuring even greater ease of use.
For added peace of mind for parents whilst travelling, the Nautilus Elite is the first Graco seat to offer Safety Surround Side Impact Protection.
Safety Surround Side Impact Protection provides additional energy absorption in the event of a crash, thanks to the adjustable head support and additional padding and protection, including extra padded body support for children in Group 1, and a five-position adjustable headrest.
Parents can ensure their child is fitted safely, easily and comfortably, as the ‘No Rethread Harness’ removes the worry of not properly re-threading the harness as the child grows. This integrated harness and backrest system simply grows with your child, while the lock-off mechanism ensures safe, secure and easy seat belt installation.
With UK law stating that children must be seated in a car seat or booster seat until they are approximately 12 years of age (135 cm in height), the Nautilus is suitable for any child from nine months to approximately 12 years. This removes the hassle of replacing outgrown car seats.
The armrests and reclining base provide the ultimate comfort for your child -- as well as handy storage compartments providing space for snacks and toys to keep your little ones happy.

It is as i had read in other reviews. The recline position is a bit rubbish, so if you go on regular long journeys then it probably wouldn't be suitable. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Scat
