Graco Enhance Group 0-1-2 Car Seat Reviews

Matthew Awarded The Graco Enhance Car Seat 4.6/5

The item arrived and my immediate impressions were on how substantial the seat was and how it definitely felt like a premium product.  I was also happy to notice there were no assembling required and the item was ready to go with clear instructions. The car seat is certainly premium. I have used this in two different cars with children age 2,4,6 and it is perfect for all of the children.  It is a seat that is without a doubt I would be confident for being one of the most protective I have used and the versatility for any age is a huge positive for a large growing family like ours who also have foster children added at any age and any time that could require a car seat.  The ways to use this are impressive and rearward is as always more protective and a great option to have.  The bigger children also enjoy this seat as they comment on how comfy it is and great for longer journeys.  When not using the harness and using a seatbelt across the child, this seat does feel a lot more supportive and protective than others and makes that transition from a harness to a seat belt a lot easier.  I do find the harness very difficult to tighten and I found I had to do this for my wife to get a good snug fit.  The way the straps can be folded within the seat when not being used is great, making it a real option to use for younger children in an emergency and limits the possibility of losing the straps like other seats that require removal of these.  The seat is supportive and loads of options for comfort with the pads that really inspire confidence.  But with this it is a substantial seat which is great for younger children but as they get bigger it would mean there is less space for larger children’s legs as you are closer and higher than dedicated group 2/3 seats. This does mean that like us, 3 children in the back with seats does make the fit a bit snug, however if you had one or 2 seats in the back and average foot room this really wouldn’t be a concern. This seat is our go to and almost makes you feel bad for the children who are not using this comfy safer seat. The design is well thought out, feels very safe and easy to fit in all the options it comes with.  It is fast to fit and not fiddly at all.  The transition as the child grows is simple and the booster cushions really do make a huge difference. For larger children when the harnesses are not required the ability to fold these without having to remove them into the seat in fantastic and even the detail to store the instructions in the seat is amazing. The design is very well done and is so supportive and comfy. The instructions were as expected, a huge book but only a few pages of English that kept the information simple and logical.  I would of liked a few more pictures to clarify a few points but that is just being a bit picky.  Additionally being able to store the instructions in the set is great for when I have to swap the seat form car to car or child to child on the go. The size is great as previously stated as a seat for the range it needs would need to be.  It surrounds and supports younger children with high sides but this Is also able to fit in larger children that benefit from that support.  If you have one or two seats in the back this is great but I would not want a third child seat directly next to this one as it does protrude further forward than other group 1/2 seats so it’s hard to pass in the car and to reach to the other side to fit the standard seatbelt when in group 2 mode.  But this comes forward as much as any other group 0 car seat so this is as expected. Very simple to fit in the car, as expected requires a full adult seat and not the smaller middle ones.  The clip to hold the seatbelt is simple and not given even a 1 cm in all in the time we have had it.Transitions between group sizes is one of the simplest and fitting is straight forward.  Day to day it is very easy to use and requires no tightening once in place as of yet.  The pictures on the side provide a clear aid memoir too when you are swapping between children.  The tilt and raising of head rest is also very simple.  However the tightening of the harness was very difficult, I am personally very strong and found this difficult to get a snug fit, my wife could not get the same fit.  If you have this right next to another car seat and you want to use the seatbelt in group 2 mode, it is difficult to reach and clip the seatbelt in due to the high walls of the seat. Undoubtedly this is very, very safe and a great option to travel rearwards to increase this.  It would be 5 marks but I would have to double check the harness was secure enough due to the force required to tighten being excessive and my wife being unable to tighten this fully.  But once in place the substantial size and support were unparalleled. All of our children have remarked how comfy this is and their favourite chair. The pads are great touch and the materials are a soft robust that feel soft for them. This is very easy to use and the added pads really make a difference in making the child supported.  Travelling rearward is much safer and easier when travelling in the rear with younger children to check on them.  As children grow they naturally want to be forward facing mimicking others but the longer they are backwards the safer they are.  However as children get bigger getting in and out of the seat rearwards gets more difficult as it requires climbing on the seat and over the side which isn’t an option if a middle seat is installed next to this. the harness adjustment was not easy to use due to the force required to tighten this.  This may just need more wearing in but it is difficult that my wife (who is not feeble at all) cannot pull this harness as snug as required.  Once it is tightened the straps are substantial and supportive and still very comfy. The way the seat fits together is premium, every part of the design has been well thought out so that the padding can hide the harness and buckle without effecting the design.  The children feel very comfy within the seat and a long drive is no problem in this.  The material also remains hard wearing and not easy to mark.  There are no loose materials either like other seats that require readjusting constantly. The harness and buckle covers  are very comfy and mean it can be snug while not being uncomfortable for the child.  The buckle covers are substantial enough that there are no worries of pinching skin on the child either.  The armrest is great for the children as they get older as they can sit comfortably and not become restless. This is a great benefit for younger children as you can recline them as they sleep and be a piece of mind they are safe.  But also as you go on longer journeys a great option to recline this for a comfier ride as they fall asleep.  The way it reclines couldn’t be simpler and done with one hand. Side impact and steel re-enforced frame  is always overlooked by many people but should be the main concern when buying one. This is very important to me and a must for a child seat especially when younger. My car does not have curtain air bags, so as an interim this car seat does make me feel much safer about not having that protection in my car. We used this seat daily for a 2, 4 , 6 year old and also a weekend with a 4 week old where all groups and positions have been tested. We used it for all our children and it is the most comfy they have used and the support cushions make a huge snug seat for the smallest children. We have used this daily since it arrived. We used this for school run, nursery run mainly due to Covid lock down travel restrictions. We loved how comfy and substantial the seat is, is the big draw to me.  Additionally having a seat that can cater for lots of ages is a huge advantage.  But the children are very comfy in this and I feel that they are very safe when secured within.  Also the design is great with the ability to fold harnesses into the seat and not having to remove them for transition from group 1 to 2 is fantastic. Undoubtedly this is a wise choice when buying a chair as it will do a child a car seat lifetime and makes having to swap and change these redundant. You could end up buying 3 chairs when all you needed was this one. The quality is exceptional.  Not a discolour or stitch out of place on arrival and after vigorous use.  The feel if soft yet hard wearing and the overall feel is sturdy and inspires confidence.  The little details like storage for harness, buckle, instructions when not required give you glimpses of a well thought out and quality product. I would buy this if I was having a child in group 0 this is a definite buy and makes perfect sense.  If my child was group 1 I would still purchase this even if group 0 wasn’t required.  I would not get this if my child was group 2 as it is more substantial than required compared to dedicated group 2 seats.  But this is a bit unfair as you cannot compare a dedicated group 2 seat to a group 0,1,2 as of course it will not be as dedicated as a seat designed specifically to one age. I would recommend as this is a great substantial chair that will do a child their entire car seat life.  I would feel confident recommending this as a safe way for others to transport their children. This is a fantastic very premium chair that does the job designed perfectly.  It is fantastic for all the ages it is designed for and simple to use for all involved.  The details are innovative in design and transitions from group sizes is the best I have seen.  The seat is safe and comfy which are the biggest factors in choosing a chair, then you put the extra details on this such as recline, rearward, folding away harness etc.,  then you have a premium product.  The only factor I would pull this down on is the difficulty in tightening the harness, it really does require a lot of force to get a snug fit.  I have used many seats and within my job provide child seat fitting guidance and this really is the hardest I have had to tighten.  I am hoping this will alleviate with wear but in the meantime it does grow the muscles. Without repeating myself to much from above the experience with this chair has been fantastic.  It fits very easy and we have swapped it amongst cars many times with ease.  Changing the group size for different children is the best I have encountered and folding the harnesses/buckle/instructions internally are innovative.  The clamp on the seatbelt is easy to use and has not budged yet!  The children have all commented on the comfort of this chair and love the padding and feel, the older ones also love the armrests.  The harness is very difficult to tighten and is a pain to get snug.  We use this seat along with two others for 3 children and in a car with 3 adult seat in the back and good leg room, therefor this is great.  It is difficult when next to another car seat to clip the seatbelt in within group 2 mode due to the high armrest and I would not want to use this with two other seats in the rear of a smaller car due to the substantial size and difficulty reaching to the seatbelt.  But this size comes with comfort and safety so I will put myself out to ensure the safety and comfort of my children.

When this arrived it looked Compact, Well-Padded, Comfy design. I think this is a very good idea as it saves parents having to keep buying new car seats as their child grows. It’s definitely good value for money. Very Well designed for practicality and for comfort. Easy to use. Nice simple instructions- easy to follow with a good break down of instruction. One of the best points about this car seat is that it is compact.  Easy to put into my car, I had no complications. I found it simple to use, A rotating base may improve the design to get baby/child in and out more easily, however for the price of this product it was very good. Once fitted I was very confident my son was safe as it felt secure and my son was comfortable. My son was very comfortable in this car seat as it has good cushioned surroundings. I briefly set it up in all aspects – and found it simple to do so, I only used forward facing for the rest of the time. The safety harness was comfortable, easy to adjust and secured my son very well. The luxury padding made a huge difference to my sons comfort. I think the harness and buckle covers  should be put as standard on all car seats and was glad to see these had the comfortable buckle covers. The 4 recline adjustments are easy to use and a valuable edition especially if you drive frequently with your baby. It’s very important to me when selecting car seat – Safety above cosmetics when choosing a car seat is paramount. I used Group 1 and my son is 22 months. I only used this for my son. I would use this at least 3 times each week. Used this car set mainly when travelling to and from my parents’ house and to the supermarket. I like the fact that it sees the child right through each stage and the comfy padding on the seat were two of the biggest bonus’ about this seat. It is without doubt very good value for money. It’s of a very high quality and I was very happy and confident using this car seat. I would buy this because it is such good value for money and my son was very comfortable using it. I would recommend this as I think it is a product that would get much use out of as it is essential and the price is very reasonable. I was very happy with the car seat, the design was very good the only improvement that I could think of was a rotating base. The price for both the quality and the fact that it is for multi ages is fantastic. The material was soft and easily cleaned. I like the colour but it may be worth having a variety of colour choices as people like variety. Above all this ticks all the boxes for safety which is most important to any  parent.

This looked fantastic when it arrived. Easy to fit and so impressed it lasts so long. Easy to use. Deeper than the other car seats I have. Instructions simple and effective. Size is the same as other car seats. This was very simple and easy to fit into our car.  This was easy to use for me and my partner. I do believe this was safe and comfortable because of the extra depth I think they look more secure. My son hasn’t complained and often falls asleep in this car seat. I haven’t looked practically at the older age use but the instructions make it appear simple. Harness adjustment is easy to use but occasionally folds and you have to unfold before you can tighten the straps.  My son was too big so we took the luxury padding out. I think the harness and buckle covers are a great idea. I haven’t changed the adjustments yet as they are set how I want them but like the option. It is important to me this car seat has side impact protection and steel re-enforced frame for extra peace of mind. My son is 8 months old so only utilised first stage. We used this daily in the car. I really liked the wide age range this car seat delivers. This is good value due to it lasting such a long time. So far good quality. I would buy this due to its longevity.  I recommend this as I like the product. Easy to use and fit, with added features such as adjustments. Loving that it develops with your child. Lindsey Peters – Samuel 8 Months
