The Maxi-Cosi Streety Plus Travel System works well as a travel system and offers a comfy ride, however as a buggy, it’s not so easy to get up kerbs.
The Maxi-Cosi Streety Plus Travel System is comprised of a buggy, a car seat (Maxi-Cosi Streety.Fix), footmuff, sun canopy and raincover. The buggy can be rear or forward facing, and the buggy seat can be reclined to a lie-flat position to use for a newborn. It also has a 3-point seat harness.
The wheels have front and rear suspension and can be switched between fixed or swivel.
The Maxi-Cosi Streety.Fix car seat is Group 0+ (suitable birth to 13kg) and is installed with your car’s 3-point seatbelt. There is the option to buy the Streety.Fix in-car base for £45 – this is installed with the car’s 3-point belt too. The car seat is lightweight and has side protection, chest and buckle pads and an integrated sun canopy.
What we love
My 2-and-a-half year old daughter Beatrice was instantly enamoured with this buggy and took to sitting in it unprompted! The buggy seat seemed very comfortable – perhaps the new luxurious padded seat goes some way to explaining my daughter’s attachment to the buggy.
I would agree with Maxi-Cosi’s claim that this is a robust travel system. It also works very well as a travel system in that the car seat clips on easily to the buggy.
The raincover is one of the easiest and the most practical I’ve ever used.
I love the fact that the Streety Plus is so easy to fold and compact. It is a real added bonus that you can store it upright – in our case in our cellar.
The seat of the buggy is relatively easy to recline (though I had to refer to the manual first of all to do so).
The car seat had a quality feel and it was easy enough to install in the car.
What to watch out for
For me, the buggy doesn’t feel that light and I thought it felt cumbersome to steer. I had to physically lift it up onto the pavements (my usual buggy I flick effortlessly with my foot), so the school run with my elder son took longer than usual. While the Streety Plus didn’t negotiate kerbs well for me, it’s been perfectly fine to push along the pavement in a straight line.
Though the buggy was easy to fold, I didn’t mange to do it with one hand as the product info claims you could
Who is the Maxi-Cosi Streety Plus Travel System best for?
Mums on tight budgets who do a lot of errands in the car
This travel system is effortlessly easy to fold, though not with one hand, and it can be stored away neatly. While comfy as a buggy and fine to push along the pavement, it’s not easy to get up kerbs.
