The Joie Every Stage Group 0-1-2-3 Car Seat in Red grows with your child from birth to 12 years. This 4-in-1 convertible car seat adapts to fit your child at each stage, meeting every road safety standard you’ll encounter as your little one grows up.

Designed and engineered to make growing up easy, the Joie Every Stage Group 0-1-2-3 Car Seat in Red adjusts up and out simultaneously, creating a custom fit for your child. As you raise the headrest through its 10 height positions, the AutoAdjust™ side wings expand for a perfect fit. The harness system matches the setting of the one-hand adjust headset with no re-threading of the 5-point harness. The Every Stage begins as a rearward facing car seat with 2 reclining positions, suitable from birth to 18kg, before converting to a 4-position recline forward facing seat, suitable for use from 9-36kg.

Just for info, since the blurb on websites doesn't always say, the harness on this seat is outgrown at 18kgs, that's for both rear and forward facing (you should use the seat rear facing right up to 18kgs for the maximum safety benefit).

Once your child has reached 18kgs you must hide the harness away and can only use the seat forward facing as a high backed booster with the car's seatbelt securing the child in the car.

I think this genuinely is a good all-Stages car seat, it offers rear facing for longer (compared to the Graco Milestone which is only rear facing to 13kgs) and works well as a high backed booster in terms of how it positions the seatbelt across the child. It's quite hard for the child to reach down and fasten their own seatbelt though, and quite bulky for an adult to reach round to the seatbelt buckle too. But those are minor points.
For an extra £13 at Halfords you also get the I-Size base

​The I anchor is a different seat. Suitable from birth to around age 3 still good value on your link. The access to yours is easier as the seat belt isn't in the way.

The stages converts to a high back booster so you can use it until they are old enough not to need a booster . . . provided the material stands up to 10 years of wear and tear and that you are okay with the booster seats safety features being many years outdated by the time the child is still using it 8 years later. For a childminder or grandparents that need a seat suitable for a few age ranges it's a good choice
Why so cold
FYI for all it's good intentions (extended rear facing) this seat seems to get poor results in various independent crash safety tests across Europe, including Which?

It's now being supplemented by the Every Stages FX which has Isofix in the base ( I believe Isofix can be used for forward facing only). No independent crash test results on this seat yet as it's too new.

From the research we've been doing when looking for a new seat for our toddler, we've found very few 1-2-3 stage car seats are considered highly safe. The safest ones are the ones that are "shield" based - When you see one you'll wonder if your toddler will even sit in such a thing!

It seems that with most 1-2-3 seats that are harness based, the need to have two ways to fit them (seat belt behind the seat at lower stage and then seat belt around the front of the seat) makes these seats more difficult to fit correctly thus compromising the safety offered by the seat.

​The seat belt ones are not any less safe in a crash than isofix. As long as you read the instructions and if you wish look up you tube for a video to confirm you have installed it correctly they are fine.

With the 123 harnessed options it's important to note no matter how big the seat the harness on the vast majority can only be used to 18kg. Same as a group 1 seat.

We have a cybex pallas, had no bother with the impact cushion, told him it is his table and gave him a dinky car for it.
