Dyson’s new V6 Fluffy raised eyebrows when it was unveiled last month, thanks to its unusual moniker and ‘fluffy’ floorhead.
It’s one of a new range of five cordless vacuums to emerge from Dyson. It features an unusual soft-roller floorhead – the eponymous Fluffy – which has been specifically designed to pick up both large and small debris from hard floors. This should mean its well suited to both quick clear ups and deeper cleaning jobs.
Watch our preview of the Fluffy in action below, or head straight to the Dyson Fluffy review for our full test lab review and verdict.
Dyson cordless vacuum range
Dyson’s five new models range in price from £299 up to an eye-watering £449. The models are an update to the popular Dyson DC59 Animal, which launched last year, and was the first to claim to be comparable to a standard corded vacuum in terms of dust pick up. We put this to the test in our 2014 cordless vacuums lab test, so to find out if these claims stack up head to our full Dyson DC59 Animal review.
All the models have the latest Dyson V6 motor, which Dyson claims is its most powerful yet. And as you move up the range you get additional features and accessories.
- Dyson V6 (£299) – entry-level model, combi turbo floorhead.
- Dyson V6 Animal (£349) – larger turbo floorhead, mini turbo tool.
- Dyson V6 Fluffy (£399) – larger turbo floorhead, ‘Fluffy’ hard floor tool, mini turbo tool.
- Dyson V6 Total Clean (£429) – more powerful turbo floorhead, ‘Fluffy’ hard floor tool, mini turbo tool.
- Dyson V6 Absolute (£449) – more powerful turbo floorhead, standard hard floor tool, mini turbo tool, extra allergen filter.
All have maximum 20 minutes battery life, although the more powerful floorheads on the pricier models drain the battery even quicker.
