See what we thought of the Babystyle Vision Impact in our first look video review:
The brand new Babystyle Vision pushchair certainly looks impressive. However, the large wheels are all fixed, which makes it a little tricky to manoeuvre, as you have to lift the front every time you want to turn.
This pushchair features the same seat unit as the Vision Movie – which has a removable bumper bar, five-point safety harness and adjustable leg rest.
The seat is reversible so you can switch from having your baby facing you to letting your baby look out at the world. It’s easy to attach and remove the seat, but it does feel quite heavy, so requires a bit of strength.
It's easy to recline the seat and it can go completely flat, so is suitable from birth as it is. The pushchair also comes with a carrycot, which is perfect for newborns, and transforms the pushchair into a stylish pram.
The brake pedal is easy to click on and off which is great if you wear flip-flops in the summer, as you only have to push down not up and so your toes are protected.
We like the good-sized shopping basket, which seems fairly easily accessible, and the handle is easily adjusted to suit different heights.
You need to take the seat off to fold the Vision Impact, which may be inconvenient for some people, but could also make it easier to lift into the car boot.
Once you’ve removed the seat, it's easy to fold – but you have to apply the catch to keep it together yourself. It looks fairly big when folded, but the wheels can come off.
As well as the carrycot, this pushchair package includes a pushchair hood, apron and cosy footmuff, plus a parasol, changing bag and a docking stand – to which you can attach the seat unit, carrycot or car seat.
However, while these extras might be nice to have, at £775, it is one of the most expensive pushchairs we’ve seen.
It is compatible with the Vision car seat, which costs £99, as well as the Maxi Cosi Pebble and Cabriofix car seats. Whichever car seat you choose, you’ll also need to buy adaptors for £19.50.
This review is of the Babystle Vision with the Impact chassis. It’s also available with the Movie chassis and you can see that in our Babystyle Vision Movie video review. You can see full test results for more than 150 pushchairs we’ve tested in our pushchair reviews.
