The latch needs work
Bought two Graphene + for second baby. I have two Millenia car seats from 2018. I love the Millenia and I really like the slim design of the graphene +.
The latch however needs work. Needs to be a more accessible design like the Millenia I thi k as it can be fiddly to reach and take a while to get the hang of and feels like a downgrade. I also think britax should give EVERY + model a car seat protector. For the price of the plus it should be in there. Very surprised when I opened up the box that they were not there. It looks like it only comes...
Do not buy. Faulty product.
Do not buy
We purchased this seat about a month ago after a lot of research and consideration. We focused on quality and safety as this is the most important thing for us for our little baby who we love so much.
The first point is that we had this seat professionally installed. This is important when it comes to the multiple safety issues we experienced.
We have had this seat a month and ever since we got it our baby has screamed in it. And she is the most relaxed baby there is.
After revisiting the store and installer we realised why.

Fits well in my Suzuki Vitara Turbo 2018
I purchased this car seat on sale from Baby Bunting for $499 which was a little expensive but it can be used from birth up to 4 years old. It fits well in my car (Suzuki Vitara Turbo 2018) my husband who is almost 6 foot tall can still sit comfortably in the passanger seat of the car seat with the baby seat behind him installed in the rear facing position. I was looking for a seat that was compact and this seat was recommended by staff at Baby Bunting and also a representative from Britax which demonstrated how the seat worked which was useful ...as this was my first time buying a baby car seat. The seat can be installed using the seat belt or isofix both which suit my car. This seat has great safety ratings which is one of the main reasons I purchased this car seat. When installed using the seat belt it is difficult to put my baby in the car seat (it was ok when he was a newborn but he is now 3 months old and it is difficult to maneuver him around the seat belt, so i now have it installed using the isofix points). Not sure if it is really suitable for my baby as he is very long (would be better than a capsule style car seat but I feel he may become too long for this carseat in rear facing position and I may have to turn him to forward facing sooner that I originally planned to). Overall a good car seat with a good safety rating that fits well inside medium sided cars.

It’s good but no need to spend $700
Baby looks safe and comfortable which is the main priority But my biggest issue is for $700 is doesn’t come with any sort of cover to store away or to travel with that’s another $100 on top that seems really unfair you’d expect for this amount of money it would come in something.
Can not access tether from either side
This is a great seat apart from one massive inconvenience. After purchasing the graphene plus and installing it behind the drivers seat we realized you cannot access easily and loosen the tether from either side which is a massive disadvantage and if known before hand we would not have purchased this seat. We need the passenger side of the car for my eldest daughter who is dropped off and picked up in the kiss and go zone for school and having bub behind the driver is not user friendly. Even more so in a 4wd you'll nearly put your back out trying to reach in to loosen the tether. I hope this helps someone else in the same situation as we are now out of pocket and will have to buy another seat.
