UPPAbaby Cruz 2017 Pushchair Review

Summary

The UPPAbaby Cruz 2017 Pushchair is the next step up from the successful and popular 2015 model. If you haven’t read how good the 2015 version is then read our review here. UPPAbaby have manged to make positive changes without making any increase on the weight and dimensions of the pushchair. The 2017 version of the Cruz still only weighs 9.8kg but is made with new fabrics and has crease resistant sun shades to keep your baby comfortable from birth up to 15kg.

Features

The UPPAbaby Cruz 2017 Pushchair weighs 9.8kg so is very lightweight. This makes it easy to move around. UPPAbaby have made some small changes that make this model equally as good, if not better, than the already successful 2015 model. The new fabrics look and feel great. The sun shade is now softer and more crease resistant than before. It is this level of detail that makes the UPPAbaby Cruz 2017 Pushchair a fantastic product.

The Seat

The seat unit is adjustable so can be used as rearward facing or forward facing. You have the choice of 5 different seat positions – all of which can be converted with one hand. This is extremely useful when you have your baby in your arms and need to alter the seat position! The footrest is also adjustable to ensure the comfort of your baby wherever you go.  Your baby is kept secure with the 5-point safety harness.
