Maxi-Cosi Adorra Travel System Review


There was so much buzz around the new Rachel Zoe Collection and Quinny Reversible Seat Jogger at the Maxi-Cosi booth at the ABC Kids Expo, that I almost didn’t notice a new travel system called Adorra.

This is a great new addition to the Maxi-Cosi family that many parents will like because it is stylish, simple, and very practical.

The Adorra travel system comes with a reversible seat stroller and a matching Maxi-Cosi Mico Max infant car seat. It looks pretty sleek. I like the combination of the black frame and dark fabrics with some gray patterns

The Adorra stroller has a lot of great features like a large canopy with a pop-out sunvisor, a deep one-hand recline suitable for a newborn, a removable machine-washable liner, an adjustable leg rest, a huge basket, and a telescoping handlebar.

This puppy weighs 26 lbs, about the average weight for the full-featured reversible-seat stroller. 

It rolls on four never-flat wheels that are a great size and can tackle some rough terrain. I am not sure if Adorra has a suspension system, but by looking at the features and the price of this stroller I would say it does.

The fold is super easy and very compact. I like that the seat folds inside of the stroller away from all the dirt and dust. The travel system retails for around $599 and comes with a cup holder and a bumper bar.

The canopy is large with a small pop-out sunvisor for additional protection. There is also a medium size peekaboo window made out of dark mesh. The closure doesn’t have Velcro and looks like part of the canopy.



The seat is reversible and is 14″ wide with a 19″ seat back and a measurement of 22″ from the back of the seat to the top of the canopy. It has a deep one-hand lever recline that goes to an almost flat position suitable from birth and up to 50 lbs.

The seat liner is removable and machine washable. The seat has the same recline positions in both modes.



The telescoping handlebar goes from 39″ all the way up to 42″ from the ground. It’s covered with nice soft foam.



The adjustable legrest has two positions.



It has a padded adjustable 5-point harness with a center release buckle.



It comes with a bumper bar.



The basket is a great size and will fit your large diaper bag. It’s easily accessible from the back and the sides.



It has a one-step brake located in the back between the rear wheels. It’s not flip-flop-friendly.



It rolls on four EVA wheels with 7″ wheels in the front and 10″ wheels in the back. The wheels are a great size and can handle a lot of different terrain. While this is not an all-terrain stroller, it’s as close as possible.

The wheels have a semi-rugged tread that provides better grip and better maneuverability on uneven surfaces.



The fold is pretty compact for the reversible seat stroller. It folds in half with the seat folded inside keeping it away from the dirt.



It can be purchased as a travel system with Maxi-Cosi Mico Max.



Stroller weight: 26 lbs
Weight limit: 50 lbs
Handlebar height: 39″ – 42″
Seat to canopy height: 22″

Maxi-Cosi has a two-year warranty on strollers from the date of purchase. It took me a while to find warranty information.

Where to buy it

You can get the Maxi-Cosi Adorra travel system for around $599 and comes with a cup holder and a bumper bar. I love the Maxi-Cosi car seat.

  1. Katrin, hello!
    Is there any news on the flow of strollers on sale ?
    it is possible that it will be until June ?
    Thank you!

  2. Bought the travel system for my sister who originally wanted a different car seat and stroller . But found this one wayyyy lighter and smaller than the one she wanted. Love the style!

  3. Is there any update on this stroller? We saw it in store and were really impressed, but cannot find user experiences online yet…

  4. Where can I purchase this travel system un Canada? I would really like to see it before I buy.


  5. Hello,

    I am a first time mom (baby due October 2016) and I am interested in the Adorra, Uppababy Cruz, and the Nuna Mixx. My biggest concern with the Adorra is that there is so little information and reviews on it. I also wish that it and the Mixx gave you the option to add a toddler tray. My main concerns with the Cruz are 1. that is doesn’t really lay flat and 2. it’s bulky when folded.

    I live in NYC and I am looking for a stroller that is built to last but not too big or too heavy (this is why I am not considering the Vista). It is also important that the seat be reversible and that I can click in a car seat when my child is a newborn. Have you heard anymore about the Adorra? It is now available at Buy Buy Baby. Which of the three do you think would be my best option? Any advise you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks for your help.

  6. How does the compact fold work? Just bought this system and can’t seem to figure it out. Also, is there a location to download the instruction manual from Maxi Cosi? Thanks!

  7. Do you have any more info on this stroller? I can’t find much info online about it since its so new. I am trying to decide between this one, the Uppa Baby Cruz, Mamas & Papas Urbo 2 and Cybex Balios? I live in Brooklyn NY and will be using the stroller to take long walks mostly. I also have a car so I won’t be loading up groceries in the basket. What in your opinion is the best of these strollers?
