I enjoy pushing the stroller, and my DD riding in it

  • streamlined, stylish design with attention to detail (like the rear part of the backrest covered in fabric as well as with metal logo, or the perforation on the adjustable handlebar)
  • suspension system
  • compact fold
  • memory buttons (even though strange to operate at first
  • reversible, comfortable seat unit with side protection
  • magnetic viewing window with mesh
  • velcro-on apron
  • hoods are on the short side, and the seat unit's one feels a bit flimsy
  • 70 cm mattress in the carrycot
  • basket not deep enough
  • leg rest misses a wipe-clean layer
  • handlebar has some give
I was really hoping the carrycot and its hood will be bigger in the newest model. It's nothing serious, but I would appreciate using it longer than 4 and a half months. And about that hood... in summer, the sun sometimes does shine straight on the baby, since it's not long enough and the apron (otherwise great and high-quality, with a handy pocket for the pacifier or another little thing) is not high enough. But we put there a Dooky shade.

Design is beautiful to look at, fabrics seem durable, structured-like, and those leatherette elements are a great touch. Both the pram mode and the pushchair mode are smooth to push with nice wheel size (which, however, makes to fold more bulky, and much nicer when you remove them) and real suspension.

I enjoy pushing the stroller, and my DD riding in it. I can sincerely recommend purchasing this (if you're ok with those downsides I mention), even though it is not the cheapest option. And one more thing - I strongly recommend getting the sold-separately, original footmuff. It fits so well and has a rear part preventing sliding.
