The all-new 2013 Lexus GS 450h is not a Prius. Sure, it’s a hybrid and it has a battery in the trunk, but let’s be honest, you’re not buying the GS 450h to save gas. The new 2013 Lexus GS 450h is luxury on wheels. You’re buying the GS 450h to feel like you’re doing something to save the planet while you cool your bum during the summer and warm your hands during the winter. It’s a luxury car with green benefits. The GS, though, isn’t your ordinary green luxury car—it’s got spunk.
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.
