Do these car seats exist?

We are looking for a car seat for our DD who is almost 4 and weighs 14kg.
We are finding that once they reach this age, the car seats are either for use with the adult seatbelt, or are just booster seats.
Neither of which we like the idea of.

I think for her size she still needs a 5 point harness and a seat that properly reclines for long distance journeys (she always sleeps in the car).

Ideally fitted by the 3 point harness as the current maxi cosi with have on an isofix base, lifts the seat up too high and makes it impossible to get her into the car.
Are we wasting our time looking for a seat that dosent exist?
Thanks in advance.

Have a look at the joie every stage and there's a new graco one but I can't remember the name of it sorry!

Sounds like you need a group 123 seat that is harnessed until 18kg and then uses the adult seatbelt afterwards

www.mothercare.com/Britax-Romer-Evolva-1-2-3-Plus-High-Back-Booster-Car-Seat-with-Harness---Flame-Red/897281,default,pd.html something like this?

Joie stages can even be rear facing until 18kg in harness. You can be forward facing with harness until it doesn't fit and then seatbelted which age is approx 7 years

We've got evolva 123plus car seats. They are harnessed till 15kg, can either have 5point harness or HBB for 15kg-18kg and then turn into a HBB.

Looking for this too for DD (3)! Thinking of Joie Every Stage as well at the mo as seems the only one ticking all the boxes - just wondering if anything else existed fitting this description that was a 2/3 stage as opposed to 1/2/3 stage... Don't know why but it somehow feels 'wasteful' to buy a seat including stage 1 when we don't need it?! confused

Will check out links others have posted and see!

We had this issue too got the britax
Advansafix. Only had it 2 weeks but 14kg son looks happy so far.

Group 1 means the seat has an integral harness. Group 2/3 have no harness. Group 123 means it has a harness and that the harness can be removed to make a high backed booster when they reach the weight limit. I would imagine a 3 year old will still be harnessed so you do need a 123 seat still.
