Maxi-Cosi launches Stella pushchairCompact, all-terrain, from-birth travel system
16 September 2015
The new Maxi-Cosi Stella pushchair has just been revealed and at 55 centimetres, Maxi-Cosi claims it's one of the narrowest ‘from-birth’ all-terrain travel systems.
The all-terrain Stella comes with shock-absorbing tyres that Maxi-Cosi says are immune from punctures. We just got the first peek of the Stella at the Kind und Jugend baby trade fair in Cologne but you'll be able to buy it from December this year for about £360.
Compact travel system
The reason we're excited about the Maxi-Cosi Stella is that it ticks a lot of boxes for features not often seen together on one pushchair. Which? pushchairs expert Lisa Galliers says: 'The fact it's an all-terrain travel system that looks nice and narrow, and can be used from birth will appeal to many parents.
'It folds up with or without the seat attached and weighs 13.5kg with the seat on – which is lighter than its predecessor, the Maxi-Cosi Mura 2.'

Maxi-Cosi Stella: what to watch out for
Maxi-Cosi says the Stella can be used from birth – and when we had a look, the seat seemed to recline far enough for a newborn. You can also attach a carrycot for extra comfort. To use it as a travel system, the i-Size Maxi-Cosi Pebble and Pebble Plus, and the Cabriofix Group 0+ car seats can be fitted using car seat adaptors.
Maxi-Cosi has gone big on looks with its new compact travel system. The Stella will be available in a range of colours, as well as a limited edition fabric designed by Amsterdam designer Edward van Vliet. He's not a design name familiar to most parents, but we love the graphic prints he's come up with.
The pushchair is meant to be as pleasant to drive as it is to look at. Maxi-Cosi promises that the Stella’s rear wheel suspension, adjustable handle bar and compact manoeuvrability, combined with its big all-terrain tyres, will take you seamlessly from tight city spaces to off-road country walks.
We will be testing these claims when we review the Maxi-Cosi Stella in the coming months.
