Parents who want ‘The Best or nothing’ for their little ones can let them travel in the all-new Mercedes-Benz baby carriage Avantgarde. Working with the German family firm Hartan, which has been producing high-quality baby carriages since the 1950s, the Mercedes-Benz Design department introduces ergonomic functionality, tested safety and innovative materials to the baby carriage. And those AMG design-inspired 5-twin-spoke wheels have adjustable suspension and air-chamber tyres too!
As is the case on the road, safety comes first on pavements and in parks. Just like all the products from Hartan, the Avantgarde meets the highest requirements in terms of material selection and production quality and bears the German Association for Technical Inspection (TUV) seal of approval.
The baby carriage is characterised by a very low net weight resulting from the combination of an aluminium frame of just 8.9 kgs with a stylish 4.1 kg GTX seat unit. Thanks to the highly manoeuvrable carrier with Solight Ecco air-chamber tyres, the baby carriage can be moved effortlessly on any surface. Solight Ecco is also a material which is very light thanks to its low density and, as it contains no plasticizers or PAHs, it is highly environmentally friendly.
The iconic feature on the Avantgarde is the eye-catching rim in the same sporty black-silver-coloured 5-twin-spoke AMG design which is also available on the new C-Class AMG Line. The parking brake, telescopic handlebar and a stowage compartment are further practical features of this high-quality design.
The carriage seat gets ergonomic points for its multiple-adjustable swivel function which also includes a recline position. A height-adjustable footrest with safety reflectors ensures that the child sits comfortably in each stage of growth and thanks to a belt system and an upholstered check strap, the child is optimally protected from falling out.
Depending on whether the child prefers to face the direction of movement or prefers to look at their parents, the seat unit can be turned 180° on the frame with one click. The noiselessly adjustable top protects effectively on hot days and in rainy conditions thanks to a climate zone in the rear and a fold-out sun visor.
For the first few months, as an alternative to the seat unit, an infant carrier can be mounted on the frame with a single click. Here too the designers have paid special attention to the greatest possible comfort for baby and parents alike. The infant carrier is very light and can be quickly mounted and removed. It is ergonomically upholstered and has a soft-top with a sun shield and erectable back section affording comfort for both the baby and parents.
