Fold

The Bee 5 folds compactly with the seat attached in either direction. It is quick and easy to fold with an auto lock to keep the folded pushchair together.

You can fold the Cruz with or without the seat unit attached. Like the Bee 5 there’s also an auto-lock to keep the frame slim and in place.

A carrycot can be added to both of these pushchairs making them both suitable from birth. As they both last up until your baby is 15kg + – they prove to be long lasting and good value for money.

If you want to have more opportunity to customise your pushchair then the Bee 5 is for you as there are multiple customisation’s you can complete such as new sun hoods and style packs. The UPPAbaby Cruz may lack as many customisation options but it is a very good looking pushchair.
