Top Rated Single to Double Stroller Reviews 2018

Seating Options Galore!

Moms like a single to double stroller because of the seating options and for planning a growing family. Use this updated 2017 guide for the best brands.

The following strollers are amazing for one baby and many first-time parents start out with one of these. Then baby #2 comes along and guess what? You don't have to buy a new double stroller! Purchase a second "rumble seat" to add to the back of your single stroller and turn it into a fashionable yet functional tandem for your newest family addition.

Many of these strollers come as a package deal with the second seat as part of the purchase. In these reviews, I will give you the link for both the single stroller, in case you want to start with just one, and the link to get the second seat together with the single stroller. 

Best Single to Double Convertible Strollers 2018

Baby Jogger City Select LUX

$630 single; $830 double

The Baby Jogger City Select Lux is a newer version of the original City Select that you will read about in just a moment. Like the original  City Select, the Lux has a roomy, comfy  seat with a multi-position recline and padded 5-point safety harness. A hand-operated parking brake is flip flop friendly and a UV50+ extending canopy with mesh peek-a-boo window protects your passenger from the sun.

The Baby Jogger City Select Lux weighs 30.8 pounds and has a weight limit of 45 pounds per toddler seat.

Baby Jogger not only made improvements on existing features, but added brand new bells n whistles while they were at it. Here's what's different between the City Select and the City Select Lux. 

  • The original City Select has 16 seating configurations while the Lux has 20+
  • Lux has a 30% smaller fold
  • Lux has all-wheel suspension vs. front wheel suspension in City Select
  • Newly designed hand brake for both deceleration AND parking
  • New accessories: Shopping tote and a stand & ride platform

City Select Lux owners give this stroller a -star average rating and they love features like the compact fold, a super-easy push, lots of storage, and of course, all those seating options. You'll discover what else parents think and get extensive information like which car seats you can use in the Baby Jogger City Select Lux review.

Austlen Entourage


While ultra lightweight strollers are all the rage, Austlen is going the other way, offering a stroller that holds and does, well, everything! I like to call it the minivan of strollers - take everyone and all that you want along for a ride. The Austlen Entourage expands into three different sizes, with a single seat and the ability to expand into a double stroller and carry all the days gear with you. It's really impressive, and is already causing a stir in the market for its innovative design and ease of use. 

The most innovative part of the Entourage is the extending frame, which has three different lengths, depending on your needs, and it slides into position with startling ease. Also, the sturdy frame holds up to 150 pounds of kids plus cargo! And yes, the Entourage still handles beautifully loaded down. One-handed steering is possible, and the suspension system is superb. 

Because of the innovative design, the stroller has easy add-on accessories like the second seat or a standing platform/bench to transform it into a sit and stand stroller. Car seat adapters for either the front seat and/or the back area turn the Entourage into a travel system - suitable as a stroller for twins

2017 Britax B-Ready

$374-$400 depending on color and seller

The newly upgraded 2017 Britax B-Ready is both a single or an inline tandem stroller and can be used in 12 different seating configurations. Two seats, two car seats, a bassinet, you can mix and match and face them just the way you like. This is a smart convertible stroller to buy when you've just got one child and are planning another because you won't have to buy a double stroller later on!

As a single, the B-Ready can take a 55 pound weight limit and the second seat on the doubles kit can take a 35-pound weight limit. You will love that the 2nd seat fully reclines AND you can fold the stroller with BOTH SEATS attached. Features like the height adjustable handle bar and ample storage basket beneath the seat are big positives with parents. The B-Ready is also about $180 less than the UPPABaby Vista with more seating options.

UPPAbaby Vista

$900 single $990-$1090 for double

One of the more popular and well-made luxury convertible strollers, the UPPABaby Vista is one of the brands that includes a feature-rich bassinet with purchase. An award-winning favorite of parents since 2006, the Vista is known for high quality materials, smooth steering, modern beautiful style and convenience. And now the Vista has been redesigned for 2018, and all these improvements are detailed in my review.

Favorite features include a comfortable, full-sized seat that is easy to reverse and recline. A huge storage basket stores everything you need and a telescoping height-adjustable handle provides strolling comfort for both mom and dad. Large rubber tires never go flat and takes you smoothly over bumpy park terrain. Weighing only 27½ pounds with the main seat attached, it is about standard for full-sized single luxury strollers.

Turn this stroller into a double when you buy the rumble seat separately or buy your Vista as a double. It is also compatible with all major brand car seats with the right adapter sold separately, or click the UPPAbaby MESA right onto the frame. 

For years parents like you have ADORED this stroller and regularly give the Vista 4½ and 5 stars! Discover all the amazing aspects of this stylish single to double stroller in my exclusive UPPAbaby Vista review.
