Graco SnugRide - model comparison graphic

Are you confused about the differences between the various Graco SnugRide models? You are definitely not alone! In 2016 there are currently EIGHT different Graco SnugRide Click Connect infant seat models and each one is different in some significant way. Below we list each SnugRide Click Connect model (from lowest to highest MSRP) and explain the features. If possible, you want to avoid the least expensive models because they have a rear harness adjuster system which makes it very difficult to tighten and loosen the straps properly.

Graco click_connect_logo“Click Connect” refers to stroller attachment and compatibility. It has nothing to do with how the infant car seat snaps into the base. Click Connect Graco infant car seats are compatible with Click Connect Graco strollers and just as the name implies – the car seat clicks securely into the stroller. If you already own an older “Classic” Graco stroller or an older model “Classic” Graco infant car seat, it is NOT compatible with a new Graco Click Connect car seat or stroller.

Note: Older “Classic Connect” Graco models are either discontinued or being phased out in favor of the newer “Click Connect” strollers and car seats. Classic Connect Graco strollers are only compatible with Classic Connect Graco car seats but you need to strap the car seat into the stroller if you are going to use it as a travel system. It doesn’t automatically snap in and lock.
