When it comes to choosing a baby stroller, we should prioritize its size and safety. The UPPAbaby Cruz is like a small version of the high-end UPPAbaby Vista Stroller, its standard, more compact, and easier to navigate on narrow streets.
When you buy it, you will receive a box containing the stroller frame, wheels, toddler seat, bumper bar, and both rain and bug shields. You don’t need any special tool to assemble those components, and it doesn’t take a lot of time to do it either. Moreover, it can be folded and unfolded within seconds, but we recommend you to use 2 hands for more safety!
It is easy to attach other bassinets and car seats to the base. You can purchase those components separately to create an ideal travel system for you. The bassinet attachment is very helpful, it will allow you to go out for a picnic or visit friends and relatives while still making sure your baby gets to nap.
Moreover, you can convert the car seat, toddler seat and stroller base to be inward or outward-facing. This will make it easy to change the baby’s direction, so they can look out at their surroundings. The canopy has an extendable SPF 50+ drop-down sunshade to protect your baby from sun rays and dust.
The stroller has a one-step-back foot brake, which can flip and lock easily. Under the baby’s seat is a large storage that can hold up to 25 pounds, which is ideal for putting in diaper bags and other small items. The handle can be adjusted to fit any type of height, and the seat can recline in five different positions from completely upright to fully reclined.
With its compact design, it can easily handle every curb, pothole, and swerve with any forms of baby seats on the stroller base (the standard stroller seat, the bassinet, or the car seat). The stroller base is lightweight (15 pounds alone, 21.5 pounds with the seat), so you can carry it up and down flights of stairs and escalators without any problem.
The stroller comes in many colors, such as red, marine blue, and black. We recommend you to choose black, despite other more colorful options. Because it is easier to clean and will look new after using it for a long time.
The UPPAbaby Cruz is a great deal, it has many high-end stroller’s features in a compact design. It can convert easily to a travel system with other infant car seats or bassinets. And the capacity is amazing for putting baby’s essentials and other items when shopping. It is everything we look for in a stroller, easy-to-use, practical and attractive. Therefore, if you can afford the $470 price tag, we recommend you to buy it.
