Is it suitable for a newborn?
Well, it is, and it isn't. Let me explain - with a carrycot and(or a car seat that are attached with adapters, the Litetrax line is fully newborn friendly. Apart from that, the seat reclines pretty much fully, meaning a yes, it is kind of suitable for a newborn, however, it is way too big to be used with a newborn baby. If you want the seat to be used from birth, you need at least a good footmuff or a newborn insert of sorts, or better yet, a universal cocoon/soft cot that inserts in the seat, for your baby to not slide around in there.
