Will the accessories for my Metro fit on Metro+?
Some may, but most will not. Metro Weather Covers and Footmuffs will fit Metro+. However, Metro+ has its own Support Bar and Carry Bag, due to differences in product dimensions. Additionally, the Newborn Kit for original and 2020 Metro will not fit on Metro+, and will not be updated for Metro+. Metro+ has flat recline and hidden “flaps” that attach to the sidewalls to create a newborn ‘nest’, so it comfortably fits baby from newborn to toddler without an accessory.

I want to take Metro+ on a plane – is it approved as cabin luggage?
The Metro+ will fit in most overhead bins. To be officially “cabin approved”, luggage needs to be able to fit underneath the airplane seat, which the Metro+ will not. In most cases, you’ll be able to bring the Metro+ on a plane, but depending on plane size and amount of overhead space available at the time of boarding, like most roll-along luggage, you may be asked to gate-check it by airline staff.
Why is Metro+ ergonomic?
There were a number of criteria that the AGR looked for in evaluating the ergonomics of the Metro+ Stroller . The first and most important was the attention to padding and support in the Metro+ seat. The Metro+ seat feature multiple padding zones that provide support for baby where they need it. Additional ergonomic criteria focused on the stroller handlebar height (it’s comfortable for parents of all heights) and the fold and un-fold do not require the parent to bend down and reach in potential uncomfortable positions.
What is the AGR Certification?
More than just a sticker - the AGR seal of approval marks particularly back-friendly products. The AGR (Campaign for Healthier Backs) is an association supported by doctors and therapists which was founded in 1995. The purpose of the association is to foster research into preventing backache and to process the findings from these research efforts in order to make a contribution to dealing with the widespread condition of backache. AGR works together closely with many important medical associations. It also awards back-friendly everyday commodities the "AGR seal of approval" which received the accolade "very good" from the "ÖKOTEST" consumer magazine. https://www.agr-ev.de/en/
