The Baby Jogger City Tour 2 is an updated version of the City Tour model which is a lightweight compact travel stroller. For 2019 they’ve completely redesigned it and now you can turn it into a travel system with an infant car seat or a pram with a carry cot (sold separately).
They’ve also updated the recline that now goes to almost a flat position, added an adjustable leg rest, redesigned one-hand fold and added new colors.
Despite weighing only 14 lbs this buggy has a very roomy seat with a tall canopy so even your older child will be comfortable. I like how nice and wide are the sides of the seat. You child will have plenty of support. The large UV 50+ canopy features three panels plus a sunvisor that can be tucked away when not needed.
The seat can accommodate a child from 3 month and up to 45 lbs. The basket is a great size for such a compact stroller and should fit your medium diaper bag. It rolls on 5″ and 6″ wheels (standard size for lightweight model) with a front-wheel suspension which helps to smooth out the bumps.
I really like this stroller. It’s light, compact, and full of great features. This is a big competition for the umbrella models because it weights less that many of them and takes a car seat which many umbrella models don’t. While it’s pretty compact I don’t think it meets the carry-on requirements. Check with your airline first.
The City Tour 2 retails for around $229 and comes in three colors. Great price! The only included accessory is a travel bag but there are plenty of different accessories are available for purchase like bumper bar, parent organizer, and a cup holder.
It has a large UPF 50+ thee-panel canopy plus a pop-out sunvisor that provides plenty of shade. This is a great canopy size for a lightweight model. There is also a large mesh viewing window with a Velcro closure. I would definitely like to see more mesh on the canopy for extra air circulation.
The rubber handle bar is not adjustable and is located 38″ from the ground. I think it’s a good height for shorter parents, but might be too low if you are much taller. BTW, the average handle bar height is about 40″. I have mixed feelings about rubber cover. On one hand it’s easy to clean and is very durable, but on the other hand it’s not that soft when used for long periods of time.
The seat is 13″ wide with 19″ seat back and a measurement of 23″ from the bottom of the seat to the top of the canopy. The seat is very well padded and is reversible so your child can face you or the world.
It has one-hand strap recline that reclines only the back of the seat providing your child with plenty of room to stretch. This recline goes to almost a flat position and is suitable from 3 months and up to 45 lbs. Great space for naps and quickly diaper changes. If you want to use it from birth, you can get a bassinet or an infant car seat (sold separately).
The adjustable leg rest on lightweight strollers is always a big plus.
It has an adjustable padded 5-point harness with a center release button.
It doesn’t have the largest basket, but it’s pretty decent. Should fit your medium diaper bag. You can access it from the back or the sides. Again, for the lightweight model it’s not bad.
For even more storage, I recommend getting an universal stroller organizer instead. That way you can take not only your coffee cup, but also a LOT of stuff including keys, phone, water, wallet, snacks, diapers, toys, and more. The amount of stuff I can fit into this organizer is unbelievable. And, the best part is that I can use it on ANY of my strollers.
It has a one-step foot brake that is not flip-flop-friendly.
It rolls on four small hard rubber wheels with 5″ wheels in the front and 6″ wheels in the back. The front wheels are swivel, but can be locked straight. This buggy is designed for flat surfaces, but could tackle some terrain. The front-wheel suspension helps to absorb some of the bumps making the ride smoother. Keep in mind, this is NOT a jogging stroller despite having “Baby Jogger” as part of its name. “Baby Jogger” is just the name of the company. You can NOT jog with this stroller.
Love the fold! You can fold this stroller with just one hand. The auto lock activates by itself once you lift up the folded stroller. I found the fold to be intuitive and parent friendly, meaning it’s not going to be a fight to fold and unfold the stroller. LOL. The updated fold is now even more compact with the dimensions of 7″x 17″ x 39″. For comparison, YoYo+ Plus is 7″L x 17″W x 20″H.
You can convert it into a pram by getting a carry cot.
You can turn it into a travel system by getting adapters. Works with most popular brands.
It comes with a travel bag which comes very handy when traveling. It has a carry handle and shoulder straps.

Where to buy it
My favorite place to buy strollers and a lot of other baby items is Amazon. It usually has the lowest prices, fast free shipping, and free returns. You can get Baby Jogger City Tour 2 in one of the three beautiful colors for around $299 on Amazon, as well as PishPoshBaby (also has free shipping). The only accessory it comes with is a travel bag.
