While the two strollers have similarities and differences, the deciding factor between the two is lifestyle. Choosing the best stroller is ultimately based on the needs of both parent and child.


The price difference between the two strollers is roughly $100. However, the additional accessories that come with the Talos S Lux makes that initial gap worth a lot more. The additional car sear adapters, wind stopper, and cup holder are extras that would have to be purchased in addition to the Cruz V2.

Stroller weight

The weight of the two strollers may appear to be similar, however, six pounds can make a huge difference to many parents, especially for those who make travel more frequently. While the Cruz V2 is not classified as a travel stroller, its compact fold and ease of carrying can make it easier to take on public transport, up a set of stairs, and when traveling in a vehicle.

Basket storage

Storage is something every parent struggles with, and this can be a big factor when it comes to deciding which stroller is right for you. A stroller with basket storage makes a diaper bag's load lighter, providing easy to reach storage for your baby essentials. The UPPAbaby Cruz V2 can offer up to 30lbs of storage, about 3x more than the Talos S Lux.

Stroller base and fold 

The strollers have similar one-step folds making both strollers one of the easiest to open and close for the busy parent who is constantly in and out of the house or car. They both fold down to a similar compact fold that should allow for any car to easily fit either on in their trunk. 

Newborn Ready?

Neither the Talos S Lux oCruz V2 are newborn certified, offering a clip-in option for car seats or bassinets with the right adapters instead. Both strollers have an option to purchase a matching bassinet for parents who choose to have one. In addition, both strollers have matching car seats and have external adaptors for many popular infant car seats like UPPAbaby's Mesa, Nuna's Pipa, Maxi Cosi's Mico Max 30, and Per Perego's Primo Viaggio 4-35. New Born inserts are also available for the Cruz V2 to utilize the stroller for as long as possible.


The Talos S Lux and the Cruz V2 both offer premium fabric and finishes, a wide range of colours and features that make them top-of-the-line strollers. The choice between the two ultimately falls unto a parents lifestyle and the baby's needs. However, regardless of which stroller you choose the baby will be safe, comfortable and stylish in their new ride!
