  • 2017 Bronze Best Lightweight Buggy or Stroller
Mother&Baby Awards 2017 Bronze Award

This is light enough to carry with one hand while you’re holding your baby, if necessary. The umbrella-fold design makes it quick and easy to collapse down, but it’s not free-standing when folded. We like the roomy seat, padded bumper bar and comfy leg rest. A plush, quality footmuff is also included.


What they say:

“Liteway is a modern and stylish stroller featuring a comfortable seat with five different reclining positions, allowing newborns to travel in a fully reclined position, while older children can sit up or recline back when they are feeling sleepy.

“Its non-slip handgrips and swivel front wheels make it simple to manoeuvre over a smooth surface and when travelling over rough ground the wheels can be locked into a fixed position to make steering easier, ensuring a more comfortable ride for baby.

“Its lightweight frame is compact and easy to store, making this an ideal choice for families on the go. ”

The quality of this pushchair is excellent value for money. The colour is multisex so would suit anyone. It is easy to fold down and put up. It is lightweight but the frame still feels very sturdy. My newborn in the lie flat position was very comfy. The handle bars are padded and feel nice to hold and wheels turn with ease.

How did this product make your life easier?     

When you are a new mum you have the carry round the world with you. Having a pushchair that is lightweight yet stylish and durable makes the daily chore of going out much easier. It is a simple pushchair to put up and put down and the extra footmuff and rain cover mean you only need this one pushchair for all weathers.

The Chicco Liteway provides everything I need for my baby. The basket is a good size which is essential to me. The frame is sturdy so I feel like my baby is safe. The lie down position means my baby can sleep in there for hours and I do not need to worry about him.

What changes would you make to this product?

If I could change one thing about this product it would be to have a longer hood. The footmuff that is provided is great so means my boy does not get cold in the winter months, but as soon as the sun comes out in the lie flat position the hood did not come down quite enough for me to cover and protect his eyes and face from the sun.

I love my Chicco Liteway, I found it very easy to assemble. It’s great as you can use from newborn to 3 years. It’s very stylish and has a wow factor. It’s very light when carrying it on the bus or in the car. It’s a very sturdy pram, the wheels are chunky, it has a great shopping tray which comes im handy when I’m shopping for baby. The seat is great as it lies flat for newborn. The seat has 5 positions. The pram is very well padded which makes it lovely and cosy for baby.

How did this product make your life easier?     

The Chicco Liteway is great as it is very lightweight. I don't have to struggle with a big bulky pram. This has made travelling around with baby so much easier and not dreading the bus journeys as this pram fits anywhere. The handles are covered in soft, nonslip material for extra grip. I think it’s great as it comes with a lovely matching fleece foot muff featuring pockets. You can zip it apart to form a leg cover.

Chicco Liteway is fabulous, it comes in various colours and catches everyone's eye. My family and friends love this stroller as it’s so easy to push, fold down, and has a great shopping basket. It definitely has a wow factor and all my mummy friends who didn’t have one are now getting one. It’s great value for money especially with the raincover, and fleece foot muff. Very impressed with this stroller and will be recomending it to all my family and friends.

What changes would you make to this product?

I've absolutely nothing to say that needs to be improved on Chicco Liteway. It's a marvellous stroller which has everything for a stroller you could possibly think of.

I was impressed by how sturdy the Chicco Liteway was and how easy it was to manoeuvre. My three year old daughter had no difficulty pushing the stroller along a pavement and for a short while, across some gravel. The footmuff was warm with a lovely soft lining. It was easy to fold the stroller up and down. There is a basket underneath the seat.

How did this product make your life easier?     

After testing this stroller, my husband's description was "they've thought of everything". We particularly liked the fact that the seat can lie flat so it is appropriate to use for a very young baby, the wheels are larger than other strollers we've seen and there is an additional pull down section to the hood that provides increased shade.

This stroller is great to keep in the car boot and use when out and about or when travelling. The fact that it can be used from birth is a huge bonus. I'm not normally a fan of strollers because I like to have a parent facing pushchair but I surprised myself by using this stroller quite a few times during the testing period. It is a very useful piece of kit and we like it more than any other stroller we've used or seen.

What changes would you make to this product?

I would ideally like there to be a viewing window on the hood of the pushchair. I regularly stopped and walked around to the front of the pushchair to check on my baby who was around four weeks old during the testing period. The pushchair is quite long when folded up but I was able to fit it in my car boot lengthways by locking the front wheels into a straight position.

Tested by mum Helen Gleeson for the M&B Awards 2017:

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

I would definitely recommend the Chicco Liteway to my friends. With it being foldable and having its own storage bag it's ideal for when visiting friends/family. It is very easy to fold away and the strap makes it easy to get your baby in/out of. I like how you can use the clips at the back of you don't want it to rock.

How did this product make your life easier?     

It makes life easier as the baby can sit in the rocket whilst you get on with a few jobs or have a shower and it is soft yet supportive and comfortable for baby and you know that they are safe all at the same time. The adjustable back is ideal as my son has reflux so I can sit him in the rocker after his feed and he can be upright and then if he falls asleep I can lay him back a little.

What changes would you make to this product?

I can't think of anything that I would want to change about the Chicco Liteway.

Would you recommend the Chicco Liteway to other mums?    

I was really pleasantly surprised at the quality and usability of this pushchair. The packaging and assembly instructions were very straight forward and easy to follow. The main features of this pushchair that I would recommend are: sturdy light frame with excellent padded handles; foldability is easy, able to do with just one hand; suitable from birth; fleece foot muff is of an outstanding quality that many other brands would charge extra for.

How did this product make your life easier?     

The foldability is a key feature of this product, with a handle to support lifting the pushchair in and out of the car and as it is light it is easy to move about. The outstanding quality of the footmuff gives this pushchair a more luxiourious feel to it rather than it being just a buggy. The harness is easy to use and safe with padded shoulder covers and groin cover. I particulary like the bumper bar also for added security and to enable toys to be attached within arms reach.

What changes would you make to this product?

There are just a few tweaks that are required with the product in my opinion. As this product is used from birth it would be useful to be able to see your baby, a clear window in the hood would mean you could see your baby adding to your reassurance. If collapsed whilst the seat us in the reclined position it does pop the hood off and unpopular the fasteners on 1 side. Clearer instructions for this would be beneficial.

Tested by Zoe Lester, 24, mum to Isla, six months. She says: 

I love that I can carry this with one hand while holding my baby – it’s really that light, but sturdy too. It handles very well and fits compactly in the boot of our car. I found the recline feature simple to use, even with one hand. The basket isn’t huge but it’s adequate for a quick trip to the shops when you need to stock up on milk and nappies.

Tested by Lizi Brown, 39, mum to Beatrice, 12 months. She says: 

I’m not generally a fan of umbrella-fold pushchairs and I prefer a single handlebar to two separate handles, which make a stroller tricky to steer one-handed. My daughter liked the bumper bar,
but we needed it as the ride was a little rough. The fold mechanism, steering, brake, footmuff and harness are all good and I like the neutral styling.

Tested by Amanda Hemmings, 43, mum to Calleigh, 18 months. She says: 

My favourite! It’s really light but it feels sturdy and handles exceptionally well. I love the footmuff, which looks so snug but isn’t overly insulated – for once Calleigh didn’t boil! The handlebars
feel a bit small and could get uncomfortable on long walks. It fits nicely in the car. The basket is small, but it’s easily accessible.
