The Moon Nuova City is a 2in1 stroller system with a robust chassis featuring smaller foam-covered front wheels and larger rear wheels covered in rubber. The 2017 and older versions, on the other hand, featured wheels with tires filled with foam and a carrycot canopy that could not be extended.

The seat unit is fully reversible and reclines up to a lie-flat; even the leg rest is adjustable. A specific feature of the Nuova model is a double reclining mechanism using a lever as well as a strap. The sun canopy on the seat unit is extendable with a ventilation mesh panel for better airflow. For newborns, a full-featured, foldable carrycot is included. To create a travel system, adapters for a car seat (Maxi-Cosi type) are included in the 2in1 set.

The Moon Nuova VS. Nuova 2021 differences

The Nuova (City) was discontinued in 2021 to be re-released in a new, 2021+ version with a bucket-type seat with a higher, 22kg weight capacity (as opposed to 15 kg of the original Nuova) and a lever-operated recline, and new, narrower wheels. The 2021 version also has a cup holder included. The 2021 Moon Nuova carrycot and other features stay the same, compared to the 2020 Nuova.

parents say thx^^

Excellent, just quite heavy

  • Large canopy
  • Adjustable handle
  • Large storage basket
  • Easy maintenance
  • Stability
  • Large selection of car seats that fit the adapter
  • Rattling front wheels
  • High weight
  • Worse storage in the car

An excellent stroller. I really appreciate the large canopy, so the stroller does not get cold inside and does not get blown in at all. Also, the front wheels are super big, with these the terrain is more manageable. Further positives include a large basket under the stroller, a height-adjustable handle, and easy maintenance. But the negative is that after a while, the wheels start to rattle slightly, or squeak when moisture gets in them. The stroller is also quite heavy, which is an advantage in its great stability, but a disadvantage in handling and folding, for example, in the car.

  • Roomy
  • I got nothing

We will definitely keep it for the nest baby 😁👏🏻

It has withstood everything

  • Compact
  • Practical
  • Fabrics are not machine washable
  • No apron for the seat unit

I am satisfied with the carriage. My son fits in it at 24 months and still has plenty of room and comfort. We tested it both in the city and in the village, on the forest road, on the stairs, etc... it has withstood everything. As a minus, I would say that the screws on the wheels after the first year caught slight rust during the winter time... probably due to salted sidewalks and snow. Otherwise it's great, doesn't fade in the summer, holds its color beautifully, doesn't squeak... just great.

The pram pretends to be off-road, but unfortunately it is not so. The springs on the front wheels are just ridiculous, they don't cushion at all, they just jingle on uneven surfaces. The stroller is not cushioned, it is hard, it rattles, for example on cobblestones. It is ideally suited for a flat asphalt road or a pavement made of cobblestones. It can handle a path of small choked stones, e.g. in a park, but larger stones are already a problem.

It was still okay with the carrycot, which is a decent size, but with the pushchair, when the child is facing me, the centre of gravity and handling is quite horrible, I have to work hard when I go over a curb to lift it up to get to the pavement. If the baby is facing the direction of travel, it's better. The pushchair has a pretty short footrest, I don't think it will be enough for us for very long. We fold the stroller about twice a week in the car and after less than 8 months of use, one part of the frame has warped (there is plastic in the joint). On the plus side, the design and the nice materials are good, the canopy is long (zippered), the seat is not the smallest... the price does not include any accessories except the rain cover (I bought a bag and a handmuff sleeve, which were quite expensive).

Since I don't only go to the shopping park, but we also go on hikes (not downright heavy terrain), it's a disappointment for me.

  • Easy to maneuvre
  • Nice look
  • Washable
  • Easy to ride on every surface
  • Compact and steady
  • Really big wheels
  • Easy to block the wheels
  • It lasts
  • Lower upper part of the basket
  • Bulky and heavy
  • Takes a lot of space in the car
  • Not cool to carry
  • Small space under

Only bassinet (as the seat part is not yet in use):

I bought it pre-used and am more than satisfied with it. While it really is heavy and bulky it really is easy to manipulate. It can be easily managed in all kind of surfaces, while the suspension could still be better (driving it is still a little hard).

The carrycot is washable and after at least 1,5 year of usage it looks brand new and modern.

It's easy foldable but not easy to carry or to pack in the car. It takes a lot of space, too.

The upper part of the basket (where the head is) is lower than where the feet are - I put a little pillow under the head too.

  • looks stylish and elegant
  • the inside of the carrycot is machine-washable
  • carrycot hood is huge 🤩

We bought it with the expectations of the famous German quality. The pram is well-built, though, there is room for improvement. The front wheels can be heard going over cobblestones or bumpy roads, and they are not the best for going down a curb.

The folding is not the easest, and the folded pram is quite bit. It is taking most of the space of our SUV. On the other hand, thee frame is very sturdy. You also get accessories included with the price. Overall, I can recommend it for parents needing a robust-feeling, sturdy system.

A good "starter" pram

  • bassinet canopy
  • bassinet space
  • a large stroller good for tall parents
  • heavy
  • open seat
  • the front wheels got a bit noisy over time

We liked it quite a lot. More so with the bassinet, the baby was so snug inside. Even a large footmuff fit in there. The seat is also OK, though, much more open. In any case, as our baby grew into a toddler, we bought something much lighter. So a good "starter" pram from my point of view. The value for the price is good.

  • Stylish pram
  • Spacious carrycot
  • Large wheels
  • Not much suspension, hard ride
  • No cosy toes for the pushchair mode
  • Heavy
  • Bulky

I truly expected more suspension on such a large, heavy pram. The ride is too hard for my taste. The folded size is very large and hard to load in the car boot, also because of its weight. One last niggle - the baby's head is too low in the carrycot, lower than its feet. I put a pillow under the mattress to make it better.

The pram looks really nice though. The seat looks much less spacious than the carrycot, and I miss cosy toes to protect the baby a bit. I think we will stay with this one about a year and a half, not more - the lifting it stresses me out too much for it to last longer anyway.

  • Nice design
  • Sturdy chassis that doesn't get stuck when folded even after so much time
  • Large, accessible basket
  • One-hand steering on smooth surfaces
  • No fading nor damage to the seat unit over time
  • Leg rest adjustment and expandable hood
  • Very heavy and awkward, bad steering on uneven surfaces
  • Doesn't cope with snow at all
  • Not at all compact (very bulky, two piece fold)
  • Bad angle of the carrycot
  • Small seat unit
  • The seat's recline gets stuck
  • No suspension can be felt
  • very wobbly over time

For me, this was a nice stylish stroller that is suitable mainly around town.

As for the chassis as such, it seems relatively sturdy to me, it is easy to fold and disassemble even after long use - it does not get stuck at all. However, it is a heavier and bulky stroller, which is suitable only for the city, and a larger car boot, because it is difficult to fit into a smaller one. It is also difficult to cope with smaller bumps on the sidewalks, the larger ones it will not even tackle, and neither it can deal with snow. On flat surfaces, it can be pushed with one hand without any problems. It is not possible to control it with one hand when going on uneven surfaces, though.

It is more suitable for shorter parents or parents with short steps. I have 172 cm, a slightly longer step - and despite the fact that my handle is set at the highest level, I kick the brake.

The front wheels rattle considerably over time. They are sprung, but it is especially strange as I don't feel the suspension.

It has a relatively large shopping basket and access to it is fuss-free, both in the case of the carrycot and the seat part.

The carrycot is a little better to use on this frame than the seat. However, it is tilted in such a way that the head of the baby is lower than its legs.

As for the seat unit, the seat was spacious, difficult to use actually, and it cannot be folded with the frame. Over time, the lever for positioning the seat back gets stuck. The advantage is a large, expandable hood and leg rest positioning. Some may also consider the reversibility of the seat an advantage. The seat is in a good condition, not damaged or faded even after quite some time time.

When I had to go out with this model in the pushchair mode (I must say didn't like to, since it's quite difficult and awkward to steer), I went only around town, where the sidewalks are better maintained; the usability on worse condition was much poorer. I personally would not get it again, especially because of the seat part.

An excellent pram, good even on more demanding terrain. Quality textiles that looks almost like new even after a year, no damages at all.
