When shopping for your stroller you might find that most companies make different sizes of very similar models and it might be difficult to know exactly what stroller will work best for your family. In this blog we will be discussing some of the similarities and differences between larger and smaller models of our most popular brands of strollers. 


To start the blog we will be discussing one of the most popular brands: Uppababy. They make multiple models but their most popular is the Cruz and Vista. In 2020 they released newly designed models called the Uppababy Cruz V2 and the Uppababy Vista V2. In the chart below we compare their important specs.

Moving on we have another popular brand, Maxi Cosi. They are a very known brand and they are very trusted by many people. Previously they had come out with their Maxi Cosi Lila which was a double stroller and recently in 2020 they released their Maxi Cosi Lila CP which is very comparable and similar to the original Lila but is strictly a single stroller. Below we are comparing specs on these strollers

Silver Cross is a very luxurious brand that makes high quality strollers. Two of their more popular and comparable strollers are the Silvercross Wave and Silvercross Coast. These two have very similar features but the wave is a bit more of an upgraded version of the coast. The wave comes with a lot more accessories, better fabric and more heavy duty frame. In the chart below you can see a few more differences between the two.

There are big differences between our next 2 strollers, the Thule Sleek and the Thule Spring. Not only is one a single and one a double but the spring is a 3 wheeled stroller. This is definitely a deciding factor when looking at purchasing your stroller. Thule is a great brand that makes very durable products, both these strollers are great but they don’t necessarily fit every need so below is a chart with more information about the two.
