Best Luxury Lightweight Strollers for 2017


babyzen Yoyo+

$495

BabyZen Yoyo+ is a popular travel stroller in that it folds up small enough for airplane overhead bins and weighs a scant 13 pounds. But don't let the small size fool you - this stroller is comfy for your child with a recling seat, adjustable leg rest and a suspension system called "soft drive" that smooths out bumpy terrain. 

The Yoyo+ has a padded 5-point safety harness with a sturdy buckle. The canopy has a flip-out visor and offers full coverage.

For parents, you will love the ample storage in the basket beneath the seat, accessible from the front or rear. You can fit a large diaper bag in there. There's also a zippered pocket for your smaller items at the back of the canopy.

The innovative, compact fold is easy to do with two steps and has its own carry strap and travel bag. A rain shield is also included with purchase. 

Reviews so far have been strongly positive, averaging 4-star ratings praising the compact convenience and smooth steering. Discover more about the Babyzen Yoyo Plus with lots of photos - especially in folded/travel mode - video demos and reviewer's comments in the in-depth review

View/Buy Product

The ultra compact fold is the perfect size for smaller spaces - you've got more stuff for your trunk than just your stroller. While it is a 2 handed fold, it's quick and easy. Front-end suspension smooths the ride for your little one. I personally love the unique wheels, and know from a distance that this is a Mamas and Papas stroller. 

You will love the roomy, reversing seat with padded harness and lay-flat recline. Attach a bassinet or car seat right on the chassis while your baby is a newborn. 

Not surprisingly, the Urbo2 has gotten mostly 4½ and 5-star reviews with parents loving the design, full recline and reversing seat and the enormous sun canopy. Plus all those little extra luxury touches.

Consumer Reports is more lukewarm about this stroller, though, rating it at 70% overall with very good marks for Ease of Use and Maneuverability and a good mark for Safety.

Peg Perego
Book Pop Up

$650-$800 Depending on color

Following the success of the Book and Book Plus, the Book Pop-Up stroller has many of the same features such as a premium lightweight chassis that folds inward like a book, keeping the fabric clean. Folds with seat in either direction. 

This stroller weighs just under 24 pounds and holds your child up to 50 pounds.

The Book was named after its folding style: just like a book. It is quite simple and it stands alone once folded. The Pop Up part of the name is for the included bassinet that collapses when you are ready to fold, and pop up again for use again. I don't know of any stroller that folds with the bassinet attached! The bassinet is also made so that baby can sleep in it for the night.

The seat is reversible with a deep recline, yet the upright position is quite straight.  Baby bumper bar is covered with a luxury leatherette material instead of fabric or foam.

You will appreciate the full coverage sun canopy with zip out panel that extends all the way past the bumper bar. It has an air circulation vented panel instead of a peek-a-boo window. 

Parents enjoy an ergonomic adjustable height handle bar that you can steer with one hand.  A large storage basket has a flexible rim to get to your things while the seat is reclined or the bassinet is in place. 

If you just want the stroller without the bassinet, and one that is lower weight, take a look at the Peg Perego Booklet that is a Consumer Reports Recommended Buy.

Inglesina Trilogy

$499

Simplicity is beautiful, and the Inglesina Trilogy exemplifies just that with a clean, light Italian design. A super-smooth glide is yours with the sealed ball bearings fitted in the wheels.

The unique patented one-handed self-standing fold is a winner when you're holding your baby in your other arm. 

Your newborn baby can ride in this stroller with a car seat (Maxi-Cosi Mico AP & Prezi) or with the optional matching carry cot that is just as chic. The recline goes flat so if you prefer, your newborn may stay in the main seat.

Rich in features, the selling points for customers include a wide, deluxe reversing padded seat reclines in multiple positions whether parent facing or street facing. It has an adjustable leg rest and padded bumper bar. A padded 5-point safety harness adjusts to your passenger's size. Sealed ball bearings in all the wheels provide an exceptionally smooth ride and one-handed steering. Parents like the generous sun canopy that folds down all the way in front your child. It also has a peek-a-boo window. Included accessories are a rain cover and cup/bottle holder.

The average 4-star rating it receives is for the smooth, tight maneuverability and the incredibly easy, compact fold. Available in four  colors; all of which you can see here.

Top Reasons to Buy

Easy folding mechanism and self standing feature

Reversing seat so parents can face their baby

Gliding maneuverability and superb performance




Bugaboo Bee3

$700-$720  for seat, canopy & frame together 

Without a doubt, Bugaboo is the very definition of the luxury lightweight stroller. The modern design is made for urban living, for on-the-go parents who want a product that takes them from place to place with convenience and ease. The compact size has a narrower footprint than full-sized buggies, and tight spaces are accessible, whether it's a small storage closet or the back of a packed car trunk. 

An adjustable-height handle provides pushing comfort whether you're tall or short. The mesh storage basket is bigger enough to store a large bag, plus you can hang one off the handle if you need to. Steering is buttery smooth and the brakes engage in one step.

The Bee's seat is reversible; when your baby is really young, face-to-face contact is a lovely connection. If you prefer to use your car seat (Britax, Chicco, Maxi Cosi  & Cybex) Bugaboo has an adapter (sold separately) that you snap right onto the chassis. The Bee3 has the option to use a bassinet.

Turn the seat around when baby is older and the stroller holds your child up to 37½ pounds, which really is not that much weight in comparison with these other strollers. The backrest and sun canopy are both height adjustable to grow with your child into toddlerhood. The seat has three reclining positions from nearly flat to straight upright. The sun canopy on the Bee3 now has a zipped extendable panel and comes down  nearly to the seat, but still does not have a peek-a-boo window.

Performance on the Bugaboo Bee is stellar, with independent suspension in each of the foam-filled rubber wheels. Turning and steering your Bee is effortless and one-handed.

For a complete look at the Bee3, take a look at this video demonstration.
