I like the Cherry. I dont think you can go far wrong with it TBH. It is light, easy to use, has a reasonably sized basket, good seat etc.
I like the Peach a lot too and there's some fab deals on the older colours at present. If you could stretch to one, then you can see why it costs more.

I actually prefer a 2 piece fold, because it means that before every outing I can decide which way I want the seat to be (you dont always want it just one way especially as your child gets older).

I have the Cherry. I love it. It's light and easy to push one handed. The basket is pretty big and the whole thing fits in the boot of my Mini. It's not great off road as the wheels are tiny, but around town it's excellent. The wheel base is narrow and it takes very little space up on the floor so it's easy to get through narrow doorways and on and off buses.

It is a 2 part fold though, which doesn't bother me, but something you seem not keen on.

Hey,
I have the peach 1 and I find this fab! A little bit more at £595 but completely worth every penny, its not so much off road wheels but I have never had any trouble with it on different terrains, a lady at the play group has a strawberry she is very happy with it and I have had a push, very smooth she has never mentioned about the basket being too small, in fact she comes in with a whole load of shopping, which I am convinced is more than it should actually take! xx

I would definitely leave the Sola - they are long open, big folded, the quality is poor (especially as time goes on - they rust easily, the fabrics look poor etc). The Strawberry basket is a good size TBH but the basket is sprung so the more you put in, the lower it goes, and yes, I have lost things out of it. It drove me nutty TBH. I can't speak for mud in the wheels, but I know the Peach suffers with that - but its not an off roader either.

The Versa and Versa GT - basic differences are the Versa has a gun metal shiny grey chassis, the Versa GT has an all black matte chassis. The GT has GT logos on it. The Versa comes in red, silver and black, the GT just in black. The GT has the cute off road forever air tyres, the Versa has EVA wheels. The Versa has all round suspension, the GT just front suspension. TBH the Versa is an excellent pushchair. If you dont need the GT wheels, then you gain because its lighter to push, easier to get up kerbs, slightly less heavy to lift (although its not noticeable), better suspension. But the GT wheels are lovely and mean you can go anywhere without worrying. However I have been off road over fields with my Versa - I locked the front wheels and off I went!

My choice - get a Versa!

Need new pram that faces backwards with off road wheels! All advice recommended!
My shortlist is the Baby-jogger Versa GT, Icandy Strawberry or perhaps Cherry. Or the mamas and papas Sola.

I am doing my head in searching! It needs to be able to fold with chair attached, not be too heavy and fit in the boot of an audi A3... And £500 is my top price really, though I might be able to go to £525 for the strawberry.

My thoughts are that the strawberry's basket is very small and looks like things would fall out, also do leaves / mud get caught in the wheels?

Does anyone know the difference between the Versa Gt and the versa? And does anyone know where in north london I can go and look at the Versa GT?

So many questions, so thanks in advance!!!!
