Inglesina Electa: Bugaboo Dragonfly vs. Inglesina Electa in terms of the handle and seat/carrycot height

New Grandmother of 2 • 19 May 2023

Hi. I saw the Inglesina Electa, and fell in love with it. I did not measure the handlebar to ground distance or the carry cot to ground distance but I see lots of comments that both are low. I’m buying it for my son who is almost 6’0”. I like its lightweightness and it’s one hand fold. Loved the elegant look. Loved the carrycot and accessories it comes with.

I was comparing to the brand new Bugaboo Dragonfly but much pricier (I’m buying 2 one for my daughter, one for my son) so I thought the Inglesina Electa was a good deal (it was also on sale).

I cannot go back to the store where I saw it as I live 3 hours away, and it’s not feasible.

Would you know the dimensions of how much higher off the ground and highest handlebar height would be comparing these two?

Thank you!

I am sorry, but I dont have it at hand either, and cannot tell you exactly how high from the ground these two are. Bugaboos, and also the Dragonfly, are however not that higher from the ground either, and so I would not say you will have it ftoo different, going for either one of those.

It is true the Electa is on the lower side, but it is not really a problem unless someone particularly asks for a tall stroller, in which case none of these would be the ideal solution. All in all though, if the stroller works for you in multiple aspects, that height will not be ground breaking, and you can go for the Electa of course.

Also good to know - the Dragonfly is more of a COMPACT, very urban stroller a- and I I think the Electa might even be the better choice for an everyday stroller here (from multiple points of view).

Your -very berry- Eli.

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