Fox 3 vs Fox 5

The Bugaboo Fox range

The Bugaboo Fox range - versatile and smart like its namesake, is the all-terrain stroller created to help new parents adapt seamlessly into parenthood without losing out on an active lifestyle.

With iconic white detailing and large wheels, the Bugaboo Fox has become one of the first pushchair options that come to mind for everyday strolling.

The Bugaboo Fox was built to offer fantastic flexibility and finished to Bugaboo's high quality design standards. With an array of compatible accessories, Bugaboo crafted the Fox range so that is can be specifically tailored to every family's life

Taking the needs of parents into account, Bugaboo designed the third version of their iconic pushchair - The Fox 3 in 2021.

Bringing together improved suspension, a secure harness system and increased comfort, the Bugaboo Fox 3 was the brand's next best stroller to offer more than just a convenient pushchair.

With multiple pockets to store essentials needed on-the-go, even in the bassinet, every little detail had been thoughtful added to this stroller.

Moreover, the Bugaboo Fox 3 introduced a broader colourway and compatible with many accessories so that families can tailor their pushchair package to best suit them and little one.

Lastly, this chic stroller was also crafted using only premium materials which makes every single journey feel luxurious too!

Bugaboo Fox 5 - what's new?

The Bugaboo Fox 5 is everything we love from the Fox and more! In addition to the offerings listed above, you can now enjoy the following upgrades from this newest model...

Bugaboo Fox 5

Easy, one-hand adjustments

With just one hand you change the height of the handlebar, recline the seat and fold the pushchair even with the seat on. That means no more placing little one down so you can get on with your day.

New chassis design

Sleek and light chassis makes for even better steering and maneuverability in any direction and over terrain. Plus, enjoy an automatic self-standing positioning with seat unit attached!

Extendable seat unit

The footrest and sun canopy now extends a few more centimeters to give growing little ones more room to ride!  It's time to let them stretch their legs and stroll in upmost comfort.

Basket upgrades

The underseat basket now holds even more items thanks to extendable flaps. Shopping has just got a little bit easier now that you can store those extra buys in the pushchair.

Board attachment

Thanks to new wheeled board attachment points, there's more space at the back of the pushchair for you to stride in style!

New colour

For those who love a pop of colour, there's no need to be green with envy as the fabulous Astro purple colour is now exclusive to the Bugaboo Fox 5.
