Last year I thought that strollers couldn’t get any better until I saw new strollers for 2015. Now, it’s even harder to choose a stroller with so many amazing models out there.
If you are having stroller nightmares, I feel your pain. I am lucky my daughter who is 2.5 years almost doesn’t need a stroller anymore, otherwise, I would probably end up with 10 of them for every kind of event. LOL.
Anyway, in this post, I wanted to tell you about 20 new most anticipated strollers for 2015. Most of the strollers listed below are already available for purchase, but there are a few that are still not out.
For those strollers that will be coming out later, I tried to post as much information, photos, and videos as I could find. As a result, it took me a whole week to put this post together. I hope you find it helpful.
Since I created this site to help parents like me choose the right stroller, I am always happy to answer any questions. So, if have a question or need help let me know by using the comment box below. I am here for you!
1. UPPAbaby Vista – $820
UPPAbaby has updated all of its strollers for this year. Finally! We’ve been waiting for years! Let’s start with Vista. Now, you can turn Vista into a double tandem stroller by adding a second toddler seat. But that’s not all. It can hold two toddler seats, two bassinets, or two infant car seats.
The second toddler seat (RumbleSeat) can reverse, and recline. The main seat has a weight limit of 50 lbs while the second seat has a weight limit of 35 lbs. You can even have three kids by getting a PiggyBack Ride-Along board.
How cool is that? It also has a newly redesigned frame that is now made out of aluminum and magnesium. The large basket is now easier to access from the back. It also has a new easy-to-clean single-piece bumper bar and a super easy and intuitive one-step fold, similar to the Cruz.
Other features are an adjustable telescoping handlebar, a roomy seat with adjustable leg rest, a huge canopy with a pop-out sunvisor, a 5-point harness, never flat tires, a deep one-hand recline, and an all-wheel suspension. The new Vista is available for around $879 depending on the color in the single mode. The second toddler seat is retailing for around $179.
Wondering what’s happening to the old Vista? Well, it’s getting renamed to Legacy. It’s almost identical to Vista except it does not come with a bassinet like Vista did and it can accept Mesa infant car seat without any adapters. Because of these differences, the price will be lower.
2. UPPAbaby Cruz – $499
The Cruz model didn’t have a lot of changes. It will have larger 8.25″ rear wheels with AirGo technology that mimics the cushion of an air-filled tire, but never goes flat. The front wheels are a little thicker.
The bumper bar is now included. It has a super easy fold and you can fold it with or without the seat. That’s it. The colors are the same as on the newly redesigned Vista. The price ranges around $499 – $529 depending on the color. Here is my full review »
I’ve also made a comparison chart of Cruz, Nuna Mixx, and Stooke Scoot V2 so you can see how they compare to the competition.
3. UPPAbaby G-Luxe – $259
Aside from the new colors G-Luxe is getting a redesigned robust profile and a one-action brake.
It also features a compact umbrella fold, removable seat pad, nice canopy with pop-out sunvisor, one-hand recline, adjustable footrest, shoulder strap, and folded stand. The price ranges around $259 – $279 depending on the color.
4. UPPAbaby G-Lite – $159
There haven’t been a lot of changes to the G-Lite model. They’ve completely removed the pad leaving only a mesh sling. It weighs only 11 lbs. The price ranges from $159 – $179 depending on the color. I think it’s a little overpriced for what you are getting.
5. Stokke Trailz – $1,299
Stokke has a new all-terrain stroller called Trailz that is designed for all-season adventure. The unique frame design allows for the seat to be higher on the frame bringing your child closer to you. This buggy rolls on large air-filled tires that will provide your child with a smooth ride.
You will also enjoy great features like a huge basket, adjustable handlebar, and reversible seat. The seat has 3 recline position in the parent facing position and 2 recline positions in the forward facing position.
The seat can be replaced with a carrycot turning it into a stylish pram, or an infant car seat turning it into a travel system. With the seat, Trailz weighs 30 lbs! Heavy. It comes in seven colors and is sold for around $1,299.
6. Stokke Scoot V2 – $599
The old Scoot got a facelift this year! The 2015 Stokke Scoot V2 now has larger thicker wheels that can handle more terrain, a larger sun visor that provides more shade for the child, a rotating handlebar instead of the telescoping one, one more recline position (3 recline positions now), mesh windows in the seat, and easier to remove canopy.
All these upgrades came with a higher weight of 25 lbs which is an average weight for a reversible seat stroller.
Other features include a reversible seat, compact one-hand fold, adjustable padded 5-point harness, adjustable footrest, large basket, and all-wheel suspension. I really like that the seat is positioned higher on the frame than on average stroller providing better bonding with your child.
I think this is a great stroller for urban parents who use public transit like to travel, or live in a building without an elevator and need to walk a few flights of stairs every day. Also, the city sidewalks are often very uneven so good wheels are very useful.
You can turn it into a travel system by replacing the seat with an infant car seat. There is no bassinet option, but there is a SoftBag sold separately that you can use for a newborn. You can get it for around $599 and it comes rain cover and bug net.
7. Baby Jogger Vue Lite – $179
Remember the Baby Jogger Vue umbrella stroller with a reversible seat? Well, after seeing the great success of the Vue model, Baby Jogger decided to release a lighter version called Vue Lite. This new model has also the reversible seat and the travel system capability, but is even lighter! It weighs only 14 lbs.
You are probably wondering how is it different from the Vue model. They are almost the same. The Lite model is 3 lbs lighter, has a little less padding on the seat, and a different access to the basket underneath the seat. It comes in four different colors and is retailing for around $179.
I absolutely love the new colors! I think they look very modern with the gray seat and white logo on the side. Also, the price is very reasonable for what you are getting.
Here is a great overview video from Baby Jogger.
8. Nuna Mixx – $499
Nuna is a Dutch company that has recently introduced its strollers to the US market. Nuna Mixx is its new luxury full-size stroller with a reversible seat. This stroller is designed for everyday life like running errands and going to the park or grocery store.
The canopy is a great size with a pop-out sunvisor and a zipper in the middle to make it even bigger. It has a large dark mesh peekaboo window with a magnetic closure (no noisy Velcro). The basket is HUGE! It will probably fit two large diaper bags. There is also a fold-away divider in the middle so you can separate your items.
Other features include an adjustable telescoping handlebar, roomy seat, 5-point adjustable padded harness, adjustable leg rest, and swing away bumper bar. The seat has a one-hand lever recline that goes almost to a flat position making it suitable for a newborn.
I really like that you can create a bed-like environment for your child by fully reclining the seat and lifting the legrest. As you probably know from my reviews, I am not a big fan of one-piece seats that have your child always in the sitting position even when fully reclined.
The one-step brake is located between rear wheels and is flip-flop friendly. The fold is very easy and very compact for this size of the stroller. You can fold it with the seat attached. It has an automatic lock and can be wheeled behind you like a piece of luggage. It weighs 27 lbs and retails for around $499.
Here is an overview video from Nuna.
9. Nuna IVVI – $800
Nuna IVVI is another luxury stroller from Nuna. It has a roomy reversible seat with a deep one-hand lever recline so you can put a newborn in it. The seat is one molded piece so when you recline it, the whole seat reclines.
It comes with an infant insert, therefore you don’t need to buy extra padding for your baby. The seat can accommodate a child from birth and up to 50 lbs. You can turn it into a pram by using a carrycot (sold separately) or turn it into a travel system by replacing the seat with an infant car seat adapter.
It also features a padded adjustable 5-point harness, adjustable legrest, flip-flop friendly brake, and adjustable telescoping handlebar, It comes with a swing-away bumper bar that is covered with the same material as the seat.
The deep large basket has a divider in the middle and will fit your large diaper bag. The canopy is a great size with a pop-out sunvisor. In case you need more protection it has a drape material that you can pull down from the zipped section of the canopy.
The canopy has a large peekaboo window with magnetic closure. It rolls on foam all-terrain tires so you will never get a flat. The all-wheel suspension and 11″ rear wheels will provide your child with a smooth ride.
The IVVI comes with a bumper bar, rain cover and infant car seat adapter. Frame with the seat weigh 30 lbs! Not the lightest stroller on the market. Like most all-terrain strollers it has a bulky fold and the seat needs to be removed before folding.
IVVI reminds me of UPPAbaby Vista model. I think they have a lot of similar features. It retails for around $800 and comes with a bumper bar, a car seat adapter for the PIPA infant car seat, and a rain cover.
Here is a short video from Baby Gizmo.
10. Mamas & Papas Armadillo Flip – $499
I get a lot of emails from parents who want something light, and compact, but with a reversible seat. Unfortunately, there are not many options. Well, finally Mamas & Papas came out with another amazing model called Armadillo Flip which is a lightweight compact stroller with a REVERSIBLE seat. This baby weighs only 20 lbs!
It also features a very deep one-hand lever recline suitable for a newborn, adjustable leg rest, all-wheel suspension, a large basket, a padded 5-point harness, and a huge canopy.
The seat can accommodate a child from birth and up to 50 lbs. I was happy to see one-hand compact fold which you can do with the seat attached, an automatic lock, and a standing fold.
You can also convert it into a travel system by replacing the seat with an infant car seat or convert it into a pram by replacing the seat with a bassinet. This is a very practical and stylish stroller that could be your ONLY stroller. You can get it right now for around $499.
Here is a sneak peak from Baby Gizmo.
11. Mamas & Papas Armadillo Flip XT – $599
The Armadillo Flip XT addition is very similar to the Flip, but has some additional features like larger wheels that can handle more terrain, full zipped mesh panel in the canopy that provides better airflow, and an adjustable telescopic handlebar for shorter and taller parents.
Of course, all of these great features came with a slightly higher weight of 22 lbs and a little higher price of $599.
Despite slight weight increase, it still has a very compact fold. Just like the Flip it also features a reversible seat, deep one-hand recline suitable for a newborn, large basket, flip-flop friendly brake, roomy seat, super huge canopy, all-wheel suspension, adjustable leg rest, one-hand fold, automatic lock, and standing fold. The seat can accommodate a child from birth and up to 50 lbs.
You can also convert it into a travel system by replacing the seat with an infant car seat or convert it into a pram by replacing the seat with a bassinet. This could be your ONLY stroller. If I had to do it all over again and buy ONLY one stroller (this is a hard one), this probably would be the one. And you hear it from a true stroller addict.
While there are a lot of different reversible seat strollers with great features, not many have a bed-like flat recline, a lightweight and compact fold, an automatic lock, and a standing fold.
Believe me when I tell you that a compact fold makes a stroller much lighter. You can get it right now in five different colors for only $599. Comes with a rain cover. I was a little surprised that it’s not available in ‘lemon drop’ which is Armadillo’s best-selling color. Here is my full review »
In case you are wondering, there are a total of five different models in the Armadillo family: Armadillo, Armadillo XT, Armadillo City, Armadillo Flip, and Armadillo Flip XT. Check out my full side-by-side comparison.
12. Mamas & Papas Armadillo City – $269
This new Armadillo City model is great for running errands, public transit, and traveling. It has larger roomy seat, very deep almost flat recline that is perfect for long naps, large basket that can fit your large diaper bag, HUGE canopy with a magnetic closure, flip-flop friendly brake, 5-point harness, and all-wheel suspension for smoother ride.
But the main feature of this stroller is a one-hand super compact fold that takes only 3 seconds! It is even more compact than Armadillo model. It also has an automatic lock and standing fold. It weighs ONLY 15 lbs!
This would be a great second stroller for traveling. It’s funny before the umbrella strollers were the most compact type of stroller you can get, but now strollers like Armadillo City might be a much better option to take with you to the airport or public transit. You can get it now for around $269.
13. Baby Jogger City Mini Zip Stroller – $249
City Mini Zip is a new lightweight compact stroller that is designed for quick trips, traveling, and public transit. It’s somewhere in between the City Mini and an umbrella stroller because of its 3D fold, meaning it folds in half and then from the sides.
Baby Jogger website says it’s a one-hand fold, but I think you will need both hands to push it together to trigger the automatic lock.
Just like City Mini it has a roomy seat, a huge canopy, and a deep recline that goes to almost a flat position. The recline uses a strap system where you need only one hand to recline the seat, but both hands to bring it back up. The seat can accommodate a child from birth and up to 55 lbs.
It also features an adjustable padded 5-point harness, front-wheel suspension, rear brake, storage pocket in the back of the seat, and adjustable leg rest. Because of the 3D fold, the basket got smaller and harder to accesses than on City Mini model.
It weighs only 17 lbs which is the same as City Mini. It does have the travel system capability and is currently available in black and red colors. It comes with a cup holder.
The optional accessories include a footmuff, hand muff, parent console, and carry bag. You can get it for around $249.99.
14. Summer Infant 3D Flip Stroller – $140
The Baby Jogger Vue has a serious competition now! Summer Infant saw what a great success Baby Jogger Vue was and decided to create its own reversible seat umbrella stroller. The new 3D Flip lightweight umbrella stroller with a REVERSIBLE seat weighs onlyt 14 lbs and is very compact.
Just like on Vue, to reverse the seat, you don’t need to take the seat out, all you need to do is push the seat forward and it reverses. I was a little surprised to see such a similar stroller to Vue. I thought they’ve patented the seat.
Anyways, it’s a great stroller that has one-hand deep recline both ways, a huge adjustable canopy that goes up and down the frame, tall handlebars, a 5-point padded adjustable harness, a compact umbrella fold, and a shoulder strap.
I like that the canopy has a peekaboo window and doesn’t have the noisy Velcro in the back (like Vue).
The basket is a typical useless umbrella basket in which you can fit only a few small items. It’s very hard to access especially if the seat is reversed.
The budget friendly price is where 3D Flip is winning over Vue. It costs around $139 vs Vue that retails for around $180. You can get it today for around $140.
15. Summer Infant 3D Zyre Umbrella Stroller – $140
The Zyre model is an upgrade to our favorite 3D Lite which is a budget friendly umbrella stroller that weighs only 12 lbs. One of the biggest complaints about 3D Lite was the small canopy. Well, Zyre model has a large canopy that will provide your child with full coverage. The one-hand lever recline goes to almost flat position suitable for a newborn.
It also features a shoulder strap, a small storage pocket in the back of the seat, thick double handles, a larger basket, more durable material, a deeper seat with a longer leg drop, a compact umbrella fold, and smoother better wheels.
All these new features come with a heavier weight of 15 lbs which is VERY light for an umbrella stroller that has a lot of features of a full-size model.
16. Bugaboo Cameleon 3 by Diesel Collection – $1,299
Bugaboo Diesel is a collaboration between Bugaboo and Diesel. Founder of Diesel, Renzo Rosso, says “Diesel is known for its alternative mindset and philosophy: creativity, innovation, unpredictability.
That’s exactly what Bugaboo believes in. It retails right now for around $1,299. If I had a boy, I would definitely be in line for Diesel. Love it! Looks very innovative and modern.
17. Cybex Priam – $1,200
The Cybex Priam is a luxury stroller with a reversible seat. What sets this stroller apart is its unique frame design and the ability to choose your wheels depending on your lifestyle: some people want all-terrain wheels while others use it mostly on a flat surface.
The roomy seat has a very deep one-hand lever recline, so you can use it for a newborn. You can replace the seat with a carrycot or an infant car seat turning it into a travel system or a pram.
It has a large canopy with a zipper in the middle that exposes one more panel. It also features an adjustable padded no-rethread 5-point harness, adjustable leg rest, swing-away bumper bar, adjustable telescoping handlebar, and a large basket.
The handlebar and the bumper bar are covered with soft faux leather. I like that! It rolls on four ball bearing tires which provides better maneuverability and easier push. It has an easy fold and you can fold it with the seat attached. As with many full-featured strollers it does not have the most compact fold.
This buggy is not cheap retailing at around $999 -$1,200. Ouch! I have to see it to determine if it’s really worth that much money. The unique frame design definitely makes it stand out. Here is my full review»
18. Valco Baby Snap Ultra Stroller – $469
I was very excited to see the new Valco Baby Snap Ultra which is a full-size stroller with a reversible seat. It weighs only 19 lbs which is very lightweight for a reversible seat stroller. This can be your ONLY stroller.
What I really liked is that you can purchase air-filled tires separately for this model and switch them when you know you will be going over rougher terrain. This is a great option!
I don’t know why other companies don’t do that. This way you don’t need to buy another all-terrain stroller for long walks at the park. Just switch the wheels and you are ready to go!
It also features a huge canopy that goes all the way to the bumper bar (which is included), a 5-point padded harness, a huge basket, an adjustable leg rest, and an easy fold.
The one-hand strap recline goes to an almost flat position making it suitable for a newborn. The seat is NOT one molded piece so you can create bed-like environment for your child by fully reclining the back of the seat and lifting the leg rest.
The fold is pretty compact and you can make it even more compact by removing the wheels. I think this is a very practical stroller that will be very popular because of the reversible seat and the optional all-terrain tires. You can get it for around $470.
19. Bugaboo Runner – $Expensive
Bugaboo had a very interesting jogging stroller at the ABC Kids Expo called Bugaboo Runner. It’s a jogger stroller with fixed front wheel that you can use with your Bugaboo stroller seat (assuming you already own one of their strollers).
It’s compatible with Bugaboo Bee*/Bugaboo Bee3, Bugaboo Cameleon3, Bugaboo Buffalo and Bugaboo Donkey. All you need to get is the frame. If you don’t own a Bugaboo, you can get it with a seat. The seat is reversible so your child can face you or the world while you are jogging. Not many joggers have parent facing seat option. Pretty cool.
It also features lightweight frame, large wheels with air-filled tires, unique suspension system, and a large basket. I am not sure about the price yet, but I know it will be expensive.
20. Orbit Baby Jogger O2 – $Expensive
Jogger O2 is the first jogger stroller from Obit Baby. As you can see from the video, it has very massive frame with a rotating dock for the seat. Your child will be able to face you or the world.
What’s really cool about this model is that it has two modes: City and Performance. In the City, the seat is positioned higher on the frame so you can be closer to your child. It also works as a high chair if you are at the restaurant.
You can easily switch into the performance mode by turning a lever. In the Performance mode, the seat is positioned lower on the frame creating better stability while you are jogging. The front wheel is swivel, but can be locked straight for rougher terrain.
This is one of the few strollers on the market that has rear-facing mode while you jog. You can also replace the seat with a car seat turning it into a travel system. Jogger O2 has an easy fold, stands on its own and has an automatic lock.
Like most joggers, it’s very bulky and will probably take up all of the space in your trunk. I don’t have the pricing yet, but I am sure like all Orbit Baby strollers it will cost an arm and a leg. LOL.
I want to apologize for such a long post. Now, if you think I’ve covered it all you are mistaken. There are a lot of other strollers that I haven’t mentioned like Cybex Agis M Air 3, Cybex Agis M Air 4, Mamas&Papas Urbo2, Mamas&Papas Sola2 MTX and etc.
It will probably be in the next post. Sign up for my blog to get the latest updates on the new releases. I will post reviews on the new strollers as soon as they come out.
