No, it’s not another updated version of a Snugride, Snugride 30, Snugride 35 or SmartSeat with just a new number behind it!  It’s essentially all-new; base and carrier.  Stay tuned for our review of the Graco Snugride Quick Connect 40 infant seat, available initially at Babies R Us for $219.99.  According to Graco, it will accomodate most preemies and newborns all the way until 2-years old!  It’s also got Graco’s new stroller attachment system and will work with various upcoming stroller models.  There are internal side impact protection wings, a no-rethread harness and an innovative base recline system that increases foot room as older kids become more upright!  A pop up foot rest not only protects the vehicle seat back from dirty shoes, but also has tiny feet imprints to help give parents re-assurance that’s it is OK for the child to be able to have their feet touching the seat.
