DURABILITY

Good – 6/10

The Quinny Buzz Xtra 2.0 stroller performs decently for durability. With easy to clean fabric, the soft material of the stroller is definitely easy to maintain. the footrest, canopy, and storage basket are made of a tougher canvas fabric that’ll last you multiple use. The hard frame on the other hand tend to show much movement and rattle when in use. Some parents show concern for the durability of this seemingly convoluted frame.

WEIGHT

Good – 6/10

The Quinny Buzz Xtra 2.0 Stroller weighs in at 28 pounds. Even though it is not the heaviest in the standard stroller category, it is much heavier than some of the better performing products. The stroller may also be difficult to carry up and down stairs and onto a car.

BRAKES

Excellent – 10/10

The single-action brakes on this stroller are very effective in keeping your stroller stable when needed. The brakes on the Quinny Buzz Xtra 2.0 stroller are sandal-friendly and very easy to engage and disengage them. While it takes a little bit for effort to set the brakes, it gives you the piece of mind that the stroller is safely locked in place.

COMPACT

Fair – 3/10

The Quinny Buzz Xtra 2.0 stroller isn’t the narrowest at its width, making it slightly difficult to navigate through crowded places. Neither is the stroller the smallest when folded. Combining its relative heavy weight and clumsy size, this stroller is not the best option if you plan to travel around all day long.

“Love this stroller. I am 5’10 so I’ve been browsing strollers that are high on the handles and this one is adjustable to standard size and tall. I bought it in grey and I love the color.”

EASE OF USE

Good – 6/10

The stroller is decently easy to use. With adjustable handle bar, and lockable front wheels, parents can easily push the stroller around. The belly bar can also be moved to the side when carrying your child in and out of the stroller. However, you might want to note that access to the storage basket is only from the front and sides, and not from the back, parent side. Also, reclining the stroller requires two hands, operating a switch from both sides of the stroller.

FOLDING

Very Good – 7/10

Folding requires two hands for the G-luxe, which may be a hassle for some on-the-go parents. The folded stroller does not stand on its on, and does not have a built-in strap to aid handling. While folding is much of a hassle, many have commented that they only need one hand to achieve the 2-step unfolding process.

GRIP

Good – 6/10

The Quinny Buzz Xtra 2.0 Stroller has adjustable handlebar that makes handling easy and comfortable. You can get a good grip on the padded handlebar and the overall shape will allow you to comfortably push the stroller with ease.

MANEUVERABILITY

Good – 6/10

The Quinny Buzz Xtra 2.0 stroller offers a lockable feature for the front swivel wheels so that it can navigate through uneven surfaces. The small footprint of the stroller does make it relatively easy to maneuver around small spaces and manage sharp corners. However, the stroller is difficult to be pushed with one hand. While the stroller is able to manage stairs and curbs, it encounters difficulties in rough terrains.

“Overall, I loved the look and luxurious feel of this stroller. You can also feel its durability and sturdiness from its bolts and snug clicks. The only reason why I can’t give it a 5-star is ‘coz of how small the storage is.”

ROUGH TERRAIN

Good – 5/10

The heavy weight of the stroller provides some stability when rolling over rough terrains. It’s fairly decent suspension on all 4 wheels and foam-filled wheels allow for a comfortable ride on smooth surfaces but not sufficient enough on rough terrains.

ACCESSORIES

Good – 6/10

The Quinny Buzz Xtra 2.0 stroller does not come with accessories but it offers optional accessories sold separately. These include a cup holder, a parasol, and a footmuff. This stroller also compatible with infant car seats from other recognised brands – of course with an additional adaptor. While the seemingly bare framed stroller looks sleek and minimalistic, many reviews have commented that it’ll be great if the stroller came with more accessories.

EASY TO ASSEMBLE

Excellent – 9/10

Assembling this stroller is extremely easy. There are only a hand full of separate items to be pieced together and assembly takes about 11 to 20minutes, with the help of picture-led manuals that will ease any frustration during the assembly process.

EASY TO CLEAN

Excellent – 9/10

The Quinny Buzz Xtra 2.0 stroller is incredibly easy to clean. The canvas fabric of the padded seat is durable and liquid repellent and a simple wipe with a wet cloth is all you need to clean any messy spills.

“So far so good! easy, lightweight, relatively small, and easy to use with the maxi cosi infant carseat! happy with my purchase thus far and loving the hydraulic lift.”

STORAGE

Fair – 4/10

The storage space of the Quinny Buzz Xtra 2.0 stroller unfortunately receives a 4 out of 10. The storage space follows the contours of the stroller to produce a streamline body. However, the functionality of the stroller falls short as the triangular storage space cannot hold more than a small-sized diaper bag. Furthermore, it can only be accessed from the sides and front, which questions many users and the parent-side is obviously the easiest access point.

CHILD COMFORT

Very Good – 7/10

Your child will be very comfortable in the Quinny Buzz Xtra 2.0! The seat is soft and padded, providing the utmost comfort to your child. The fabric feels gentle on the skin too. The stroller falls short only because of the relatively poor performance on rough terrains but your child will be more than glad when rolling on smooth concrete surfaces.

SUN CANOPY

Excellent – 9/10

The Quinny Buzz Xtra 2.0 stroller offers a height adjustable canopy for a full coverage. The canopy exists with a visor for that added knowledge that your little one is protected from the harmful sun. The only point to note is that the canopy does not have a peek-a-boo window for you to check on your child at your convenience when the child is forward facing.

SUSPENSION

Good – 6/10

This stroller comes with a four-wheel suspension system. The suspension is well-designed for a smooth ride but it is not sufficiently well-built for rough terrains.


WHAT DO EXPERTS SAY?

Quinny Buzz Xtra 2.0 Standard Stroller Review

“The padded seat and suspension mean your tot’s in for a comfy ride wherever you are – be it a muddy towpath or beach pebbles (pictured) – and the sturdy rain cover amply protects the passenger from both wind and rain.” – Made For Mums 

“The Buzz Xtra takes away the stress of getting your pushchair out of the car and fighting to get it up. Thanks to its clever gas hydraulics, all you need to do is take off the automatic locking catch on the right side, give the handlebar a slight lift and it will unfold and click into place.” – Push Chair Expert
