    Maclaren Techno XT vs Gracco Citilite Urban Chic

    What's the best pram for a HK mum who travels by taxi most of the time?

    Maclaren Pros:
    - Lies flatter
    - Seems sturdier
    - More enclosing/ snugger for the baby
    - Nicer design/ colour
    - Can be folded up with one hand

    Maclaren Cons:
    - Slightly heavier
    - Does not fold and remain standing
    - More than twice the price of Gracco (even though this isn't the main issue at hand)

    Gracco Pros:
    - Very light, great for carting in and out of taxis!
    - Easily folded with one hand
    - Remains standing after folded
    - Economical

    Gracco Cons:
    - Comes across as a little flimsy because of the lightness, but could be a completely wrong first impression!
    - Not as enclosed and snug as Maclaren

    Any feedback will be so appreciated! This may also help some of you who are in the midst of choosing a pram for a new baby in HK.

    I'm sure you've got a pram by now, but for those who still can't decide, Maclaren is always the brand to go for Vs Graco if money is no object. If money is REALLY not a problem, I would even recommend the Bugaboo Bee that's been out not that long - it would probably retail at about $5000-$6000 but don't quote me on that. Durability, portability and reliability are high on the list when you have previous cargo on board!
