About the UPPAbaby Cruz Stroller 2016

“Cruz” through the city in style! The 2015 / 2016 UPPAbaby Cruz is just as light, nimble, and stylish as ever, but UPPAbaby is never contented to leave well enough alone, and this new Cruz has a series of tweaks that make it even more comfortable, convenient, and stylish than before.

Tthe Cruz now features larger, 8.25” patent-pending AIRGo tires, which combine the light weight of foam-filled tires with the cushioned feel of air-filled tires. They’ll never go flat, and they provide the ultimate in shock absorption. Cool! The 2015 / 2016 Cruz Stroller also includes a new bumper bar, so baby has something to grab onto on the go.

Changes aside, here’s a quick overview of the 2015 / 2016 UPPAbaby Cruz Stroller:


  • Weighing in at a slender 21.5 pounds, it has almost all of the same features as the UPPAbaby Vista Stroller, including the same roomy seat on a narrower frame;
  • The seat is reversible, so your babe can gaze up at his beautiful mama or explore the new sights and sounds of the wider world;
  • The stroller handlebar is height-adjustable, telescoping to suit the needs of taller and shorter parents;
  • Kids enjoy an ultra-smooth ride on four-wheel suspension and ball bearings (and you’ll love how smooth it is to push!);
  • Like the UPPAbaby Vista Stroller, the Cruz has a gigantic under-seat basket, holding up to 25 pounds!
  • The Cruz is compatible with the awesome UPPAbaby MESA infant car seat, no adapter needed!

We know you love the Vista (everyone does), but if your stroller priorities include a lighter weight and a more compact footprint, the 2015 / 2016 UPPAbaby Cruz Stroller is for you!

great stroller! great shopping experience!

2 out of 2 people found this review helpful

versatile, lightweight, rugged, we're planning to use it from one month (when we bought it) until he doesn't need a stroller.


the latch is a little hard to open

you likely know that shopping at Magic Beans is an amazing experience. we'd heard tale, but this was our first time in. our son had just turned one month and his mama was finally ready to be out and about and in need of wheels to get further. our sales lady (meaghan in cambridge) was wonderfully helpful and patient. she reviewed the strollers and their pluses and minuses several times (our sleepless minds needed that) and coached us to a stroller we could use (with adapters) from birth until our son's done with strollers. it's also great for bumpy city sidewalks, and subway riding. as an infant carrier, it might not be so easy to use on the bus where you'd have to collapse (the carriage needs to have its seat facing forward to close. we're either using the seat back facing (with the snug seat) or with the infant car seat (which clicks in with adapters).

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

2015 UPPAbaby Cruz Demonstration & Review

Meet the 2015 UPPAbaby Cruz Stroller! The lightweight version of the popular UPPAbaby Vista Stroller has been updated and refreshed for the new year, making it an amazing option for parents who want a fully-featured baby stroller but need something compact for taking baby on the go.


The 2015 UPPAbaby Vista features new UPPAbaby AirGo wheels, which are made with EVA with an air channel inside, for superior shock absorption – all the shock absorption is right in these never-flat stroller tires! The 2015 UPPAbaby Cruz also has a new bumper bar, and will come in all the same colors as the UPPAbaby Vista Stroller and the UPPAbaby MESA Infant Car Seat.


As before, the UPPAbaby MESA Infant Car Seat clicks right onto the Cruz Stroller to create the ultimate baby travel system, and the Cruz still has the same roomy, reversible seat on a slender frame, the same height-adjustable stroller handlebar, and the same enormous basket for all of your baby and shopping needs.

Are you looking for a compact, reasonably priced stroller for leisurely strolls through the city or jaunts around the suburbs? Both the Baby Jogger City Mini GT Stroller and the UPPAbaby Cruz Stroller are well-loved by parents across both environments for their ease of use, quality, and style.


The UPPAbaby Cruz Stroller is the downscaled “little sister” of the popular UPPAbaby Vista, sharing many of the best features of the Vista at a slimmer size and weight that will be easier to get in and out of your car. The Cruz has a reversible seat, which is unusual for a stroller that weighs only 21.5 pounds, and we love the gigantic, UV-protected canopy and the huge under-seat basket. It also has a standing fold, which can come in really handy!


The Baby Jogger City Mini GT Stroller is even more compact, with the easiest fold possible: you just pull up a strap in the seat and it whaps neatly in half, making the GT ideal for parents who drive a lot, or use mass transit in the city. It also comes equipped with foam-filled, never-flat all-terrain tires, which will do a good job at handling cracked sidewalks and bumpy playgrounds.

UPPAbaby is one of our favorite brands, and not just because they’re our neighbors here in Massachusetts – they also make amazing strollers and other baby gear! The UPPAbaby Vista Stroller and the UPPAbaby Cruz Stroller are two of our most popular models, and in this video, Nat, one of our professional Stroller Matchmakers, shows you how each stroller works to help you choose which one is right for you.

Both the UPPAbaby Vista and the UPPAbaby Cruz are attractive, versatile strollers with reversible stroller seats, adjustable handlebars, great sun protection, and adapter-free compatibility with the UPPAbaby Mesa Infant Car Seat. However, there are four major differences between these two baby strollers:

- Convertibility from single to double;


- Bassinet;


- Wheel size; and


- Basket size.


Watch Nat explain how these features determine which of these UPPAbaby strollers is right for you, and if you have any questions she didn’t answer, ask us!
