  • Conclusion: Compact and lightweight, the Quinny Zapp Xtra has some nice additions to the original, but does now need to be taken apart before folding. It’s stylish and travel system compatible, so spot on for car users. Just keep it on the pavement.
  • Pros: Lightweight, compact when folded, forward or rear facing seat, travel system compatible, suitable from birth, The Quinny Zapp Xtra can recline to a horizontal position, so 2-year-old Jack was able to have a comfortable sleep while we were on the move. The Zapp Xtra also boasts a nice wide seat compared to most buggies of this size, so Jack’s shoulders weren’t squashed. The seat is reversible, and while Jack preferred to be facing forward so he could point out things, ...
  • Cons: Seat has to be removed to fold, only suitable for pavements and city streets, handle height can't be adjusted, seat is shallow, I have used the original Quinny Zapp and first purchased it with an international flight in mind.

  • Pros: Compact when folded, lightweight, forward and rear facing, stylish design and colours, car seat adaptors are included, choice of two Maxi-Cosi car seats, The Quinny Zapp Xtra seat reclines to horizontal, which means that my 2-year-old Jack was able to have a comfy snooze while I wheeled him round the streets of London. It’s also a nice wide seat, compared to most buggies of this size, so his shoulders were not squashed. The seat is also reversible – my boy Jack prefer...
  • Cons: Only really suitable for city streets, handles are not height adjustable, seat is relatively shallow, have to take seat off to fold, The handles are not height adjustable so my husband (6’ tall) and my mother-in-law (5’4”) did not find the Zapp Xtra as comfortable to push as I did. Although the shopping basket is a decent size, there’s nowhere else to put stuff, so with the raincover in the bottom, there's not a lot of room left. It’s also not advisable to hang bags o...
