This review is from: Britax Evolva Group 1/2/3 Combination Car Seat (Black Thunder) (Baby Product)
This Britax seat was purchased because one of our grandchildren is approaching the need for a group 2 seat owing to his height. I have only tried it properly so far as a group 1 seat and as a group 1 it performs very well. The only negative is that the seat has to be removed to set it into the single recline position.

Just a few hours after the new seat arrived we put our tallest grandchild in the seat and he threw up ALL over it (and the car's back seat and carpets). The worst mess ever! So I had to completely remove the cover (quite easy) and even had to hose down the plastic shell of the seat to get it all out.

This was when I found out about one feature which is very good yet it has one slight drawback: the 5 point harness is not removed when it is not being used. When the seat is used as a group 2 or 3, the 5 point harness tucks away into a compartment at the bottom of the seat back so it can't get lost. The drawback with this is that cleaning off stomach contents is difficult because the belts cannot be removed - hence the hose pipe. You could say that this is a negative, but for the peace of mind of not misplacing the 5 point harness I think it's a good idea to have it permanently attached.

During this cleaning excercise I tried the seat as a group 2 and 3 (i.e. with just the adult seatbelt) and noted that the seat back extends to a very good height thereby offering strong side protection for the head, and the built-in guide to correctly position the top of the adult seat belt is easy to thread.

Conclusion - I can recommend this seat if your passenger is old enough to face forward as the seat will grow with them and should last them for 10 years or so.
