Baby Jogger City Tour Lux – Tested and Reviewed

Get to Know the Baby Jogger City Tour Lux

The Baby Jogger City Tour Lux is a high-end version of the original Baby Jogger City Tour stroller, released in February 2018. The City Tour Lux features a full-suspension chassis for a smoother ride, but its smaller wheels make it more maneuverable in tight spaces. We put the Baby Jogger City Tour Lux through its paces to see how it stacks up against the competition.

The City Tour and City Tour Lux are two similar models of strollers from the same manufacturer. Both strollers have many features in common, including a reversible seat that allows the child to face forward or backward. However, there are also some key differences between the two models. The City Tour is designed for use on smooth surfaces such as sidewalks and pavement, while the City Tour Lux is built for rougher terrain such as dirt roads and grass. As a result, the City Tour is lighter and more compact, making it easier to maneuver in tight spaces. The City Tour Lux, on the other hand, is tougher and more durable, able to withstand more wear and tear.

While the City Tour has a 3-point harness for safety, its counterpart the City Tour Lux has a 5-point harness. When it comes to dimensions, the City Tour Lux is also larger overall, measuring 40″ x 23″ x 38″, compared to the City Tour’s dimensions of 35″ x 20″ x 29″. However, both strollers fold down for easy storage and transport. If you’re looking for a lightweight and compact stroller with a reversible seat, the City Tour is a great option. If you need a larger stroller with more safety features, go for the City Tour Lux.

City Tour Lux has many features that parents love, like a one-hand fold, suspension for a smooth ride, and a removable child’s tray. This stroller also offers an extended sun canopy with UPF 50+ sun protection. Truly this is the perfect solution for on-the-go families! The Baby Jogger City Tour Lux can be used as a travel system with the included City Go infant car seat or the City Select Second Seat (sold separately). But it is not recommended for children under 6 months old. So please use the City Go infant car seat for infants under 6 months.
