Cybex Balios S vs. Peg.Perego Veloce, which to choose (from birth)?

Anna • 11 Nov 2023

Hi Eli,

We can’t decide on two models of strollers, Cybex Balios S Lux (stroller) + Cloud T car seat, or Peg Perego 3u1 Veloce Lounge Mon Amour. We have already Yoyo Babyzen (got it as a gift) so we would like another stroller to be more stabile, stronger, and for newborn cot not to be that low near the ground like Yoyo has. Please help, I’m loosing my mind 🫣
Prices for both are app the same and it will be a city stroller.

Thanks a lot in advance!

Heya, Anna,

Both strollers you chose are rather nice and similar in terms of push, so you can't really go super wrong here. If I were choosing, though, I think I would go for the Cybex simply because it is less bulky, the carrycot feels longer, and the wheels feel like having a little more (not crazy much) suspension, so that would be my advice here. But the Veloce is not a bad choice, especially fabrics-wise, so if you'd not agree with my arguments for the Balios, the Peg-Pérego won't be a disaster either.

Also, please, don't use the Yoyo as an only or regular stroller for a child that doesn't sit independently yet, it should be used only occasionally, and you are right to get a different stroller, it is better for the health of your child.

Your -very berry- Eli.

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