The Britax B-Motion 4 is a four-wheel stroller with a non-reversible seat. You can also choose the more versatile three-wheel version, known as the Britax B-Motion 3. The B-Motion is heavier than the strollers of the lower B-Agile series, however, it is also more spacious and can handle even a rougher terrain thanks to the air-filled tires with suspension. You can adjust the handle by rotating it. Folding is very fast and requires only one hand. The mechanism of harness adjustment is also one-handed. The seat is slightly reclined even in the upright position. You can recline it flat. It is not possible to adjust the leg rest, you can however slightly push it upwards. Using the optional soft carrycot, a carrycot or a car seat you can create any desired set. It is also available as a complete stroller system.

parents say thx^^



Seat unit is great. The only drawback is the sitting and lying adjustment, it often jams. I am satisfied.

Later we also bought a carrycot and it's fine, too. Smaller, but just right for a spring baby, without a footmuff. For me, also great.

  • Light
  • Compact
  • Easy to steer
  • When it folds up, it basically stands on the handle - I have to be more careful not to tear it

The pushchair is light and pushes great. It takes up little space in the car and folds easily. It has a large space under the stroller. I got it second hand and it is still very nice. I have trouble with positioning sometimes, but it's my third child in it, so it's possible that's because of that. I got it as a second stroller so my little one could climb in it on her own. She has time for that so far, so we'll see 😁.

It's a really versatile, handy helper

  • Inflatable wheels
  • Lie-flat positioning
  • One-hand folding
  • Does not have leg positioning
  • Canopy has one large mesh part
  • Possibility of getting dirty when folded

The stroller is very practical, suitable even for worse terrain thanks to the inflatable wheels. The inside of the stroller is spacious and the materials are easy to maintain.

The back positioning is up to lying down - but not quite to sitting, we didn't mind it too much. The positioning has a bit of an odd control and sometimes gets stuck. The leg positioning is missing, but can be - handmade - easy to purchase. The canopy is extendable, but it extends by the net part, so you have to deal with overlapping the net afterwards.

The frame is a bit heavier, but stable and solid at the same time. The shopping basket is quite large and quite accessible. The stroller folds with one hand and stands on its own when folded. When folded, it touches the ground with the handle and a little with the hood; also in the car it leans on the inside - so there is a risk of getting dirty. On the other hand - it can also be folded with the cosytoes, which is a problem with other pushchairs.

I've been happy with it, and with the addition of the extras (overlapping the net part of the canopy and positioning the legs) it's a really versatile, handy helper.

  • Large
  • Spacious
  • Heavy

A spacious, comfortable stroller for baby. It is quite heavy, one-handed handling is difficult. Folding is easy.

Suitable for regular terrain

  • Inflatable wheels
  • Can also be purchased with a bassinet
  • Cannot adjust the legs
  • Only faces the direction of travel

Practical, compact pram with inflatable wheels. Suitable for regular terrain.

  • Suspension
  • Folding
  • Roomy seat
  • Mesh in the back
  • Large canopy
  • Seatback adjustment

I switched to Britax after the Cam Techno Soul. I thought the Cam was a superb stroller with minor flaws, but since we've been riding with the Britax, I find the Cam to be a bit of a rattle 😄 I read somewhere that the Britax is such a minor tank - and truly, it is. It's stable, goes over any terrain, which is totally awesome for me since I have a dog.

The stroller is quite small for me, even though it looks big. It's spacious inside, which my son duly enjoys. I wouldn't have minded the original slanted seat, but we have adjusted it to a perpendicular seat with a back strap. They could improve the recline and replace those seat belts though, but it's OK to get used to.

I would have liked the basket under the stroller to be a little bigger, but I'll cram anything I can in there. I bought a second-hand one that has been modified - and thus I have the leg positioning, so that minus has been eliminated. The head net is also perfect for summer - I really appreciate it when the little one falls asleep. We absolutely don't miss the reversible seat either, and my son has been riding in it since he was 8 months old. The canopy is long, covers perfectly, and even when fully open the little one can see out of the stroller.

If ever a second offspring comes, for me it's going to be definitely Britax.

I used it from 3 months to 2,5 years

  • Spacious
  • Load capacity (I carried two kids in it at the same time when needed :-D)
  • Durable frame
  • Quiet
  • Lots of storage space (basket, organizer, pocket that hung in the back)
  • Not usable in snow

I was very satisfied with the stroller. I used it from 3m to 2,5 years. After that we switched to a lighter buggy.

  • does not rattle
  • sits well on the road
  • spacious
  • no leg positioning
  • canopy – not much
  • heavy (despite the suspension I have a problem climbing even on a low curb)
  • low (taller people have to crouch)

Not a bad one, if a bit cumbersome, but quite manageable. It's quite low to the ground for us, I miss the leg positioning, and I find the mesh on the canopy completely unnecessary... they could have put a normal fabric on there to protect the baby properly from the sun and wind. We only use it ocasionally as a second stroller at my grandparents' house (we bought a pad that solves the leg positioning) - otherwise it would be gone already...

  • large
  • easy manipulation
  • good even for bad terrain
  • easy-to-puncture inflatable wheels
  • seat is not reversible

This stroller is absolutely top of the line. I have walked all possible terrains with it. Our 86cm son slept in it without any problems and we still use it with our son because he doesn't want to walk. And even though it's a little heavier (both son and stroller), it's easy to handle. The only thing I consider a minus is that the seat doesn't face both directions, which is why we bought our daughter the Britax Smile 3 now. And the fact that it is very easy to puncture those inflatable wheels - we have changed them twice already.

  • higher weight capacity
  • spaciousness
  • easy steering
  • compact enough for the car
  • almost all-terrain
  • small, inaccessible basket
  • very slanted sitting position - you need a strap put behind to make it better (we used an old belt)
  • short canopy (the extension is just mesh - you can swap it for the B-Motion Plus canopy (can be purchased separately)
  • no leg rest adjustment - we made our own thing to put under it and make the legrest stay up

We only used the stroller in the pushchair mode, so I don't know how much about the bassinet or the car seat. Overall, I am satisfied, we bought it for winter use and its spacious seat - criteria this stroller meets perfectly. It will accommodate a 94 cm 2-year-old wrapped in a fleece jacket and a blanket - it there was still room to spare 😄

Your questions about the Britax B-Motion 4



Would you happen to know, if the Britax B-Motion 4 stroller is compatible with the Britax B-Agile 4 front winter wheels? I´m struggling to find an answer from anywhere or anyone. In the pictures online they look pretty much the same.

Best wishes, Jo from Finland

Hello, Jo,

We tried with just the usual (non-fixed) front wheels, and yes, the front axle of the Britax B-Motion and the Britax B-Agile lines is compatible with one and other wheels. It is not a perfect solution, but it can be clicked in, yes.

Fyi, even the rear wheels are compatible, but one needs to swap the internal axles (the small silver ones - to use the B-Motion type axles even with B-Agile wheels if on the B-Motion pushchair and vice versa) as well, otherwise the brake wouldn't work.

With this non-swivel axle, I never tried, but it makes sense it should be compatible. However, the thing is that the B-Agile terrain axle is EVA foam only, so it's going to be lower to the ground than the rear wheels with tires of the B-Motion.

There was, in fact, also a B-Motion fixed-wheels axle available in the past, but not anymore. Maybe it's worth checking in classifieds.

In any case, it should be compatible, yes, but it's not the best fit.
