Inglesina Zippy Or Peg Perego P3?



I'm trying to decide between the Inglesina Zippy and the P3 for use with my soon-to-arrive infant. I believe both are compatible with the SnugRide (which is the infant seat I'll be using).

Otherwise, does one outshine the other?

Opinions very much appreciated.

If I recall correctly, they are VERY similar. :)

The P3 frame is aluminum. The Zippy frame is... aluminum.
The P3 weighs 17.6 lbs. The Zippy weighs... 17.5 lbs.
The P3 has a max weight capacity of 45 pounds. The Zippy? 45 pounds.
The P3 has a 5-point harness. The Zippy? 5-point.
The P3 has a fully-reclining back. So does the Zippy.
The P3's wheels are 6.25". I don't know the wheel size for the Zippy.
The P3's handles are 40" and are adjustable. The Zippy's handles are 41".
The P3 is 40" x 21" x 15.5." THe Zippy is 41" x 21" x 18.25."

Here is some information I found:

I have had both and personally I love my p3 much better! IMO, it feels sturdier? But I think it is all a matter of personal opinion I love the colors of the p3 better also.

If you can get an older Zippy, I'd go with that over the new Zippy (Was it 2004.5 or 2003.5 they changed in??--newer ones have the footstep) or the P3. The older Zippy felt a lot more solid. Both the P3 and the Zippy feel like plastic junk to me, so I'd have to say: Neither. Go to a store and put 40lbs of weight in them and steer them around the store with a coffee in one hand. You'll see what I mean.
