Cybex Priam 2017 vs Priam 2020

The CYBEX PRIAM has been a stand-out in the pram world since it was first launched 2016.
It is elegant, refined and packed full of features. Behind the PRIAM’s classic, simple frame design hides a surprising variety of configurations and equipment options. In it you will find everything that a young family needs in the early years, both for everyday use and travelling.

In Australia, we have two models of the Cybex Priam available - the previous 2017 model and the current 2020 model. The overall look and silhouette of both prams is very similar. Most of the updates to the 2020 model are aesthetic, with a few minor functional differences. Overall, it comes down to your budget (we have some great runout deals on 2017 model), your desire for the 'latest & greatest', and preferences on colours &  style. 


Both Priam models are suitable from newborn through to 22kg. Difference between 2017 and 2020 is style and colour options. 2017 Priam also has an option of a Lux Seat or 2-in-1 Seat/Carrycot.

2020: The Seat on the Priam 2020 is completely lie-flat, therefore is suitable from birth to 22kg.

2017: Option of Lux Seat or 2-in-1 Seat/Carrycot.
The Lux Seat is suitable from newborn to 22kg.
The 2-in-1 option contains a separate carry cot & seat fabric. The carry cot is suitable from newborn to 4-6 months (when your baby starts to sit). At this stage you can swap over to the seat fabric which is suitable from 6 months through to 22kg.

To change the height of the handlebar it's the same on both prams. The way you fold the pram has changed and the shape of the handlebar has changed.

2017: Only available in Chrome with Black leatherette.


Both prams have great suspension and are all-terrain. Wider wheels on the 2020 model make it easier to push and smoother to ride in. 

2020: Wider wheels with more texture.

2017: Narrower wheels, more streamlined and smooth.

Buttons to remove the seat

2020: Memory buttons, meaning you can push each button separately and they will stay pushed in and you can then remove the seat.
