Review: Chicco Liteway


With the summer coming up, and our holiday, we have been looking for a more lightweight stroller that is easy to pop in the boot, and take on public transport while Sam is working. Don't get me wrong I do love my Oyster and it has served me well, but it is time to move onto something more age appropriate, and ideally something that is easy to collapse when I'm on my own. We were very kindly sent the Chicco Liteway by our lovely friends at Chicco to review. I am so excited to share what we think of it with you. 

The Liteway has just been given a makeover for the new season and comes in a variety of colours - Purple, Red, Coal and special addition denim. I am not a bold colour person, meaning the red or purple don't really appeal to me, however Sam talked me into getting the purple, and I actually love it. The frame comes in a cool grey shade with elegant chrome details on the wheels and handles to give it a more premium look.




The stroller was really easy to put together, it only took me around 10 minutes. Both the wheels and the sunshade/hood were easy to clip on. The stroller also comes with a foot muff and sun visor, ensuring your baby will be comfortable whatever the weather.


The seat is wide, comfortable and spacious. It has also been redesigned, with clean classic lines of the embellished stitching complementing the legrest and the sides of the padded bumper bar, which are crafted from luxurious Saffiano Eco-leather. The new model also features the intelligent memory adjustment legrest, which returns to the previous position every time the stroller is opened. Emily loves the fact that the legrest can be adjusted, as it makes it so much more comfortable for her. 



We have been giving the Liteway a good test, our first outing was to a shopping centre which meant I had to tackle two buses and a train. I was immediately impressed with how the Chicco handled, the swivel wheels meant the stroller was easy to maneuver. On the first bus I had to collapse the stroller to get on the bus, which actually proved to be a lot more straight forward than I expected. The liteway is super compact when it is closed. It features a umbrella type fold and has a handy little handle on the side, which allowed me to hold onto Emily's hand without struggling to hold onto the stroller. 

I also managed to climb two flights of stairs at the train station carrying Emily and the stroller. Apparently people are too busy to help and unluckily for us there was no lift. The Liteway is very light, it only weighs 7kg which meant it was easy for me to juggle the stroller and Emily. It also meant I was happy to let Emily push the stroller along. The backrest can be completely reclined with just one hand, meaning it was easy for me to recline it when Emily fell asleep. It also means that the stroller is suitable from birth. 


Overall we have been loving the Chicco Liteway. I honestly cannot fault it, and there is nothing I would change about it. I have even been recommending it to friends, and we can't wait to take it on more adventures. We will be uploading a video review on our YouTube channel shortly, be sure to keep a eye out for that.

The Chicco Liteway is available at all major baby retailers and has a RRP of £120.00.

  1. I had a Chicco stroller for my eldest when she was a baby about 12 years ago now ! This one looks great , I love the colour and how easy it is to fold. Jacob also had an oyster but he has outgrown it now he is 19 months xx

  2. Lovely stroller. I love that you can get a nice lightweight one like this for when they're a little bit older. This is what we've been looking at for the littlest.

  3. I remember when T was a baby, I always struggled with our heavyweight silvercross bugy. I loved it, but it was just so heavy. When she became a toddler, I bought a lite buggy too. It wasn't Chicos (another brand), loved that buggy too :) Dean of Little Steps

  9. I adore the colour and an even bigger bonus is it being lightweight. Just what you need.

  10. I wonder if they do a twin version of this?! This looks like exactly the thing we need now The Twinkles are a little bigger :) We very occasionally use their big buggy now, we could really do with something smaller and lightweight like this, for travelling and days out. Love it — great review too :)

  12. Wow! This looks fab. We're looking for a suitable lightweight stroller too for Q when we go on holiday this summer. He'll only be 5 and a half months old so not really sure what to look for! x

  16. Aw, love the photo of Emily pushing it. Wow, I can't believe you managed to carry it up all the steps at the station - must be really lightweight! - but it makes me really sad no one offered to help. Gorgeous colour too x

  17. I've never had a chick before .I like the colour of it. Great that it's so light. Sounds like you needed it to be when you had no help. This infuriates me. X

  18. This looks fab! Easily collapsible is such a must with strollers - I'm forever fighting with mine on the bus! :)

  19. I'm not a fan of these types of strollers, but I can see one thing I think is good about this and thats the front wheels. I love that they are smaller and single rather than double like the back wheels. I can image this makes it much easier to push and turn x
