The Mountain Buggy Swift is a nice little stroller that scored well in our tests. It is easy to fold and maneuvered in tight spaces better than a lot of the competition. Its smaller footprint and folding features make it a quick mover in crowded spaces, while its rubber wheels help it traverse over various terrains with ease.
"The Mountain Buggy swift is clever, compact, attractive and that fold is brilliant. If you are looking for a great urban pushchair that can handle the rough stuff at the weekend, look no further than the swift."
"At last! A sturdy all-terrain buggy you can actually steer properly with just one hand!
This was the very first thing I noticed after assembling the Swift and I hadn’t even taken it out of the front door.
The standout feature for me is that the Swift is so lightweight and easy to steer that I can hold Bluebell’s hand or pull her along on her scooter while also pushing the buggy – something I haven’t been able to do with any of the other pushchairs we’ve had."
The Mountain Buggy swift has been awarded a 71% rating by the UK consumer champion Which? in it’s expert review conducted in January 2016. The stand out features are the great suspension and a smooth ride that scored 5 out of 5 for manoeuvrability on both kerbs and rough ground.
“The swift provides a great ride quality; the suspension and pneumatic tyres give a smooth ride on all surfaces. It's also highly manoeuvrable and very comfortable to push. It's easy to fold and unfold, and this is one pushchair that actually delivers on its promise of a one-handed fold. Its light and compact size make it easy to move about when it's folded.”

This stroller looks as if someone took a massive, all-terrain stroller and stuck it under a shrink ray. It has the inflatable wheels and lightweight aluminum frame of rugged strollers that outdoorsy parents love, but it's small enough to fit through an urban corner store. It takes rock and curbs with equal aplomb, and the brake on the handle is a nice touch. The super-soft seat fabric, combined with the completely flat recline, makes this very comfy for napping babies. Folded up, it feels light (no back strain getting it and out of the car) and tiny (we challenge you to find a trunk this won’t fit into). With its combination of ruggedness and compactness, the Swift could be both your everyday and your get-out-and-get-moving stroller.
I have a 2015 Mountain Buggy Swift 3 and I am really happy with it. Before I bought it I found it a little hard to use some of the reviews on this website as a guide because some relate to the previous model, and if you look on the mountain buggy website they summarize the upgrades that have been made.
"We are very happy with the new swift, it's easy to use, light and a great looking piece of gear!"

"It's very light and comfortable to use. I find the stroller really manageable and handy due to its reduced size, which makes it a pleasure to handle in all kinds of spaces. The new style handle has a really nice touch when grabbing it."
