  • Spaciousness
  • Puncture-proof tyres
  • Easily foldable
  • Heavy
  • Bad centre of gravity
  • Difficult to get out on a curb
  • Short bassinet (four-month-old with a cosytoes didn't fit)

I bought the stroller as a triple combination - but even after reading so many good reviews, it didn't suit me at all. The bassinet was short, the stroller had a bad centre of gravity... not at all suitable for the terrain.

  • Roomy
  • Sturdy
  • Stable
  • Suitable for terrain
  • Large hood
  • A bit heavier
  • Bulkier in the trunk

I was quite happy with the pushchair and the pram setup, too.

Absolutely the best

5

Absolutely the best stroller I've ever had. It was beautifully spacious, the baby can sleep easily inside; the canopy protects what it's supposed to; the gel wheels are great too, I wasn't worried about getting a puncture somewhere. Perfect one-handed folding. Fits in the trunk of a sedan.

Did not meet our enthusiasm

  • very spacious and comfortable even for a 3-year-old child
  • design
  • very heavy
  • not very compact
  • creaking in the handle
  • not much for off-road
  • price

So much praised stroller did not meet our enthusiasm.

Pluses: very spacious and comfortable even for a 3-year-old child, nice design.

Minuses: very heavy, such a tank, for a pushchair. It is not very easy to store, it takes up quite a lot of space in the car. Although new, after 2 months it started to creak in the handle area, lubrication did not help. It is not much for off-road (if anything, just a milkd terrain, groomed dirt roads, etc.), even after buying off-road front (fixed) wheels - with these it can go through worse terrain, but it is terribly difficult to handle. Price - the price includes the bare stroller and nothing else, everything else (raincoat, ...) must be purchased.

  • Large
  • Spacious
  • High load capacity
  • High weight
  • Large, bulky after folding
  • Not reversible

Super robust stroller for larger babies, leg positioning - a big advantage.

  • 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.

  • Great to drive
  • Folds well
  • Looks good
  • The storage space under the stroller is large enough
  • It is quiet
  • Suspension on the wheels is harder, not suitable for cobblestones
  • Can only be folded with both hands

As well as looking great, this stroller is also very practical, easy to handle and compact. I also appreciate the fact that the individual parts can be purchased almost anywhere, simply exchanged for a different coloured piece or washed. It's even better with the Britax cup holder. The wheels can be locked, and this option is wonderful when you need to lull a little screamer to sleep by riding over a threshold. For me it was a very good investment and I recommend it :-)

Not very practical

3
  • Different colour variations
  • Appears to be sturdy
  • Doesn't look cheap, but is more affordable than many others
  • The front wheels do not work well when you need to go over the threshold
  • It is heavy

I'm giving it a 7 because the front wheels are small and spin in all directions, which doesn't work well when you need to go over a threshold. So I usually turn the stroller around and reverse. It's not very practical.

I personally have no complaints

  • backrest positioning
  • leg rest positioning
  • large canopy
  • peek-a-boo window
  • storage compartment
  • easy folding/unfolding
  • 5-point harness
  • suitable for tall parents
  • none

The perfect stroller for me and my son. He's been in it since he was 5m due to the fact that the bassinet from the 3in1 set was already too small for us and we traded the car seat for a safer product anyway :)

Large canopy, peek-a-boo window, backrest and leg rest positioning, storage space, also suitable for tall people, easy folding/unfolding, 5 point fastening - honestly I personally have no complaints.

  • Large canopy
  • Lots of colour options
  • Long lying space (110 cm)
  • Positioning of the legs
  • Easy handling
  • Easy folding
  • Heavier chassis
  • Difficult to put up from lying to sitting

The pram is beautiful, it has a perfect extendable hood, and it's solid and long - which is nice because the baby is comfortable when it sleeps and its legs don't hang off it. Easy to handle, even easier to fold. On the minus side, it's one of those heavier strollers (but you don't feel it when you're pushing it) and it's harder to get from lying down to sitting up. I give 10/10, we didn't have a better stroller.

The manipulation is very bad

2
  • Really sturdy 5point harness
  • Rotating push bar
  • Roomy, comfy for the child
  • Horrible maneuverability
  • Bulky when folded

To be honest, it disappointed us. I thought it will be a perfect pushchair (as opposed to our 3in1 pram where only the carrycot was any good), but it wasn't so.

The manipulation is very bad. Almost impossible to steer with just one hand, ie. when I hold my older one's hand with the other. I need to push with all of my arm to turn it. Our other, larger Britax needed just one-handed, gentle push to be driven around.

If I could, I would want my money back 😄

My 5yo daughter fits inside

5

Fantastic stroller. Large wheels that don't get a puncture. Large storage basket at the bottom. Large canopy that provides ample coverage. Seat back and leg rest lie flat. My 5yo daughter fits inside - it is long and wide in the sitting part. Fantastic foldability, handle adjustment, removable belly bar, 5-point-harness, easy maintenance.

I would buy it again

  • excellent push
  • adjustable leg rest
  • extra long canopy
  • fast fold
  • elegant design
  • folds with the seat out - a bit impractical
  • a little heavy for my taste

Satisfied. I would buy it again.

The only advantage is its spaciousness

3
  • Spacious
  • No-maintenance wheels
  • Canopy can be changed for a different colour
  • Heavy
  • The one-hand fold is practical but not realistic for an average woman, you need the other hand as it's simply too heavy for one
  • Strap recline and a slanted seat back

OK for that price. It is functional, but nothing great, really... The only advantage is its spaciousness...

  • spacious
  • very easy to handle
  • pushes well over field roads and grass
  • lightweight
  • I sometimes missed a reversible seat

A spacious, very easy to push pushchair. It pushes well even on field roads and grass. Also, it's lightweight.
