Baby Jogger City Elite 2: How does the Elite 1 differ to the Elite 2 pushchair?

Resh • 08 Jul 2023


How does the Elite 1 differ to the Elite 2 pushchair? I have been recommended the Elite one for my ASD daughter, as I was told it can withstand if my child was to thrash around in the pram during a meltdown and wouldn't tip over. Currently struggling to find something within my budget but also safe for us to use when out with our daughter.

Hey, Resh,

Both the City Elite and the City Elite 2 are good strollers. If your child is not a very small baby anymore, the older version should be just fine for you as well.

About the differences, the main difference is in the wheels - the newer version has slimmer ones with maintenance-free tires. Baby Jogger says they also upgraded the wheels' quality. The Elite 2 also has this newer, modern, sleek, premium fabric material.

All in all, yes, the Elite 2 is updated, but that doesn't make the Elite 1 bad, not at all. If you buy a pre-owned one in very good condition, you'll be happy with it, I believe.

Your -very berry- Eli.

Now, this is your place to ask. I'm listening.
