– the complete Evoq stroller review!
YSG Rating: (3.9 / 5)
First thing to note is that the GB Evoq stroller is currently not available in most stores. It has been discontinued by GB for a few years now, so most stores no longer carry it in their stock. This article however is useful if you’d like to buy the stroller as a second hand. You can find out all you need to know about the Evoq stroller before making your purchase!
Note: if you’d prefer a more recent stroller that’s quite similar to the GB Evoq, I’d recommend the Evenflo Pivot Modular travel system:
One the other hand, the Evoq stroller also referred to as the Evoq 4-in-1 travel system includes the Evoq stroller and GB Asana infant car seat. The stroller is referred to as 4-in-1 because it has up to four sitting modes – forward/backward facing with the stroller seat, and forward/backward facing with the infant car seat.
Using the infant car seat, you can use the Evoq travel system from the birth of your child, till they are older. As a newborn, you can use the infant car seat and once your baby is older, you can switch to the stroller seat. The stroller includes a lot of features and provides you with everything you’d need for a newborn and toddler.
Apart from being car seat compatible, the stroller includes features like a quick-fold feature, a height adjustable handlebar, a parent cup holder and an adjustable leg rest. The stroller has all the features you’d hope to have in your everyday stroller.
Although the Evoq stroller has a lot of nice features, it gets a 3.9/5.0 rating. This is because after reviewing the stroller closely, it is a bit lacking in quality and quite flimsy in stroller material and design. So while the Evoq stroller is quite affordable for a complete travel system, you’d need to consider these few details if you want a good, lasting stroller.
Read below for full details on the stroller features, Pros and Cons, likes and dislikes, etc!
Evoq Stroller Features
Car Seat Compatible: As mentioned, the Evoq stroller is car seat compatible. It includes the GB Asana infant car seat that can easily be attached to the stroller frame.
Newborn Stroller: By replacing the stroller seat with an infant car seat, you can travel with your newborn aboard the stroller.

Reversible Seat: As part of the 4-sitting modes, the Evoq seats can be adjusted to be either forward facing or backwards facing. You can have your baby seated facing you, or facing the world!
5-Point Harness: In terms of safety, the stroller seat has a 5-point harness system that keeps your baby safely strapped to the stroller seat.
Adjustable Leg Rest: in terms of comfort, the stroller has an adjustable leg rest that gives your kid some leg support. It’s great to not have their feet dangling, especially during a nap.

Conclusion – Evoq Stroller Review
The GB Evoq is an affordable travel system with lots of features you’d hope to have for your newborn and toddler. But you also need to keep in mind that the quality is quite lower compared to most similar strollers available on the market.
I’d suggest that if you’re interested in something similar but a bit more quality and around the same price, you should check out the Evenflo Pivot Modular stroller!
