Colour options

UPPAbaby has redesigned the look of the very famous Cruz stroller. They have added beautiful new colours; Alice (pink), Hazel (deep blue), Finn (Olive) and Sierra (Softer grey). Of course they also kept the popular Jake, Jordan, Emmett, Gregory colours as well as now offering the Cruz in Bryce! 

UPPAbaby Cruz V2 2020 coming soon.


They added suspension in the rear wheels (2019 version only had suspension in front wheels), front wheel lock indicators and a non-rethread harness! The well known UPPAbaby pop out canopy shade has been redesigned as well. The Cruz V2 comes with the standard adjustable canopy- as well as a zip out fabric extender and ventilation on both sides to keep your baby covered and comfortable.






With all these new features, you must be wondering if the size and weight of the Cruz has changed! The 2019 Cruz was 21.6lbs, while the Cruz V2 2020 is 25.5lbs. Now let’s talk wheels. The wheels on the 2019 Cruz are slightly smaller than the brand new Cruz V2. The Cruz had 6.4” front wheels and 8.5” rear wheels, while the Cruz V2 has 7” front wheels and 10” rear wheels.  The V2 also has a larger storage basket capacity, now at 30lbs! The toddler seat hasn’t changed too much, as noted above in the comparison chart, there is only a maximum of 2” difference between the 2019 Cruz and the Cruz V2 seat!


The new UPPAbaby Cruz V2 still holds a lot of the same features as the Cruz 2019. There were a few must have features that just had to be built into the 2020 version.. With multiple recline positions, an adjustable footrest for your child as well adjustable handlebar height- this stroller is built for comfort. You’ll be excited to hear that they kept the same easy, compact fold while designing the Cruz V2, because let’s be honest- the fold is my favourite feature and I’m sure you’ll love it too! 

If you loved the 2018 Cruz, we know you’re going to love the new model too. We can’t wait for the Cruz V2 to arrive in our store, with all the beautiful new colours and features- we know this will become another best seller here at Little Canadian, stay tuned for more updates on when the UPPAbaby Cruz V2 arrives!
