Dyson vacuum comparison guide

It took James Dyson 5,127 prototypes before the first bagless vacuum was created. Two decades later, we have an entire suite of floor care technology alongside accessories, engineered to suit every individual need. The Dyson vacuum range all feature unique designs and built-in technology. To know which is the best vacuum cleaner for your space, we’ve broken down a simple and easy to understand Dyson vacuum comparison. Read on to discover your next advanced cleaning solution.

Dyson V15 Detect cordless vacuum

Dyson stick vacuum comparison

By choosing to solve the problems that others ignore, Dyson’s engineers have created the most efficient floor care technology available. From wide or compact spaces, hard-to-reach spots and hard-to-see, the Dyson comparison is like no other.

Each of our vacuums feature advanced levels of filtration matched with uncompromising motor power. So, which is the best cordless vacuum for you? Compare Dyson models below.

  • Dyson Gen5detect

  • Dyson Gen5detect™


    Constant pioneering and testing have led us to our most intelligent machine yet. With multiple new technologies included, the Dyson Gen5detect™ goes further to provide the best clean possible.
