iCandy Peach 3 VS iCandy Peach 2018: What’s the difference?
Everything you need to know about the iCandy Peach 2018 buggy - including how to fold it, what it weighs, travel system compatibility and what it costs
It’s safe to say the iCandy Peach has become an iconic pushchair in the UK. Now in its 13th year, the new iCandy Peach 2018 has been upgraded.
A sleeker design, added practical extras and (surprisingly) less branding, the new Peach features a total of 60 improvements, and means you can instantly see that it’s a different type of pushchair.
What’s the difference between the Peach 3 and the new Peach 2018 pushchair?
Functionality is key to the new 2018 version of the Peach. It is 2kg lighter than the Peach 3, has a bigger basket and the footbrake has been repositioned to the side, to make it easier to tap on and the recline has been moved to the back of the seat and is now one-handed.
The seat unit and carrycot is now a 2-in-1 function, meaning you convert one to the other, saving space and a redundant carrycot after 6 months of use.
The size of the seat and carrycot has been deepened and lengthened, to make it bigger for baby.
When in double mode you will no longer have to buy a smaller second carrycot addition as you did with the Peach 3 and what’s more, you get one carrycot included in the price and not sold as an additional extra, like it used to be.
Is the iCandy Peach 2018 travel system compatible?
Yes, like the older versions before it the new Peach is travel system compatible, and for the first time the car seat adaptors (needed to add the infant car seat on the frame) are included in the package.
How does the iCandy Peach 2018 fold?
- Put on brake
- Remove the seat unit by pushing in the side buttons and lifting off
- Press in the button on the middle of the handle
- Push the handle down quickly
- Fold down handlebar
- Lift up the carry strap in the basket

How much is the new iCandy Peach 2018 pushchair?
The iCandy 2018 costs £999 is you are using it as a single buggy, this price includes a carrycot and car seat adaptors.
The older iCandy Peach 3 (which is still being sold by retailers) starts from £755, but it’s worth noting that this does not include any extras, so they are comparatively similar in price.
