Differences between Joolz and Joie pushchairs

I am expecting a son in a few months and trying to choose a pushchair suitable from birth. I thought I'd decided on the Joolz Geo2 Mono pushchair & carrycot, which is £850. However I then realised the Joie Chrome pushchair, which is £250 (350 including carrycot), appears on the face of it to be broadly similar in terms of product specification.

I would be grateful if someone could kindly advise me on whether one really does get better features from more expensive pushchairs (beyond stylistic appearance) such as Joolz, such as comfort, ease of use, adaptability etc, or whether the price difference mostly reflects style, fabrics, appearance etc?

Many thanks

The Joie Chrome DLX (next model up from normal Chrome) is a great pushchair. It looks, feels and acts like a much more expensive pushchair. I am not the type of person to spend a fortune if an equal alternative is available cheaper and the Chrome DLX met my expectations perfectly.

Apologies this wasn't one of the buggies you mentioned, just wanted to share my experience with a very similar model. Its less than £30 more than the standard chrome (around £275) so could be an option for you?

Thank you for your helpful messages. In the end I went ahead with the following deal which I thought was excellent value:

Ocarro PushChair 6 piece bundle. RRP £1,149 but I was fortunate to get it for around £600 on This was because they give new customers 20% off their first order. The website also had a Black Friday promotion meaning the bundle was priced at £759.99. So a 20% discount on that brought it down to £609. It comes with a carrycot, Cybex Aton car seat, IsoFix base, car seat adaptors and cup holder. Fingers crossed we will find it a good set of products overall.

Hello, sorry for gatecrashing this post, Joel89 I have also been looking at the Joie DLX Chrome and it looks great but would love to know if you used it on countryside tracks or different terrains as we like our outdoor walks and nog sure how the frong wheels would get on. Thanks

I just bought the chrome, thinking it was the dlx. Didn't realise it didn't have the suspension! The dlx costs £75 more. Is it worth it? I'm on a tight budget.

Hi Becky122 hope you're search for the right travel system is going well.

I look after Reviews here at MNHQ and I thought I'd let you know that we actually tested the Joie Chrome DLX last summer. A big part of the process was testing the travel systems on different terrains, each one was pushed for 80km, and we found that the DLX performed really well on a variety of terrains.
