In this article, we take a look at the main features of each pram to help you decide between them.

Brand

Bugaboo is a dutch brand of strollers that was formed in 1999. Since then, they have become one of the leading brands of luxury prams across the globe. Bugaboo have been selling prams in Australia for well over 10 years and have become a very well-known brand for Australian parents.

Cybex is a German brand that was formed in the early 2000's, primarily focussed on carseats. At the core of their product development is the DSF Innovation Principle; the combination of Design, Safety and Functionality. Cybex has not only become a leader in child safety, but is also seen as an innovative lifestyle and fashion brand. In recent years, Cybex has expanded into the stroller market; applying their product development philosophy from carseats to the broader infant market. Cybex is now one of the largest manufacturers of baby products in the world. Cybex is a more recent entrant to the market in Australia, only branching out here in the last few years. It is a much less known brand but their great designs and quality products have seen them make great strides in only a few short years.

Each of these brands has a wide range of strollers. In this article, we are focussing on the premium, most recent model full-size stroller that they offer: For Bugaboo, the Fox 2 and for Cybex, the Priam 2020.

Style

Obviously the style of the pram is a very important part of the purchasing decision. Here's some pictures to show the 2 prams and their differing styles. We'd recommend you check them out in store, or have a look at some of the videos online.

    In summary, both are great prams with premium features backed by reputable global brands. Both prams are very manoeuvrable and easy to push. The Cybex Priam 2020 is more sturdy and made from premium materials, which results in it being heavier. This is somewhat offset by the ability to wheel it like luggage, so you don't need to carry it as much. The Bugaboo Fox 2 is much lighter but also less sturdy.

    No pram will tick all the boxes; you need to prioritise which features are more important to you and your family. Ultimately, the decision on which pram is for you has to be made by you. We hope this article provides you with some information to make that decision easier.
