This is just one of the reviews of the Britax B-Motion 4 Plus stroller. Check for more reviews, specifications, or ask our stroller expert: Go to Britax B-Motion 4 Plus detail
  • Large internal dimensions
  • Large canopy with ventilation
  • Positioning of legs
  • High load capacity
  • Possibility to change colour (by buying a colour set)
  • High weight
  • Large dimensions (even after folding)
  • Worse handling - manoeuvring, folding
  • Weak suspension
  • Positioning is rather impractical

Since I was a happy owner of a classic B-Motion (non-plus), I thought that this one would be the perfect stroller, but it's not...

As far as baby comfort goes, it's definitely a step up. It has leg positioning, the canopy is full and even longer than it was on the older model, and the inside length has grown too (just a little bit of width loss).

Worse is the parent comfort, here came the disappointment. The stroller has grown not only inside, but also outside - and you can feel it. It's much harder to manoeuvre and folding is also more difficult (the stroller has gained on weight too). It's such a clunky "truck"- not really a tank or a tractor, those are good off-road, this stroller only pretends to be off-road. In this area, too, it lags behind the older model - the suspension is weaker (probably because of the higher load capacity) and the overall impression of hardness is worsened by the non-inflatable wheels, which, although they are without the risk of punctures, don't absorb unevenness as well as the air-filled ones. It rattles and bounces even on rough tarmac.

The rest hasn't seen any major changes, it's pretty much the same as on the non-plus B-Motion. They haven't fixed the zipper jingling that drove me crazy on the old model, and the positioning is just as hard to do as it was.

It has a chance to appeal to parents who plan to carry a larger child in the stroller, up to 4-5 years old, just because of the high carrying capacity and generous interior dimensions. I've had my older daughter (less than 4yrs) in it a couple of times and she slept just fine, even had some extra room, and you can feel the suspension a bit at higher loads.

So if you're going to swap your B-Motion for a B-Motion Plus, definitely give it a proper test first, as it's a completely different stroller, at least it feels like it to me.
