Baby Jogger City Tour Lux

DISCONTINUED in 2020
see 3 parent reviews

The Baby Jogger City Tour is a superior version of the original urban, ultra-compact City Tour, released in February 2018. The full-suspension chassis provides a smoother ride, but the smaller wheels make the City Tour Lux more suitable for city walks. The handy brake is situated on the side of the handlebar.

Compared to the City Tour, the City Tour Lux features a reversible seat. In both directions, the seat offers a deep recline that goes to an almost flat position suitable for babies of 6-7 months of age and older. The leg rest is adjustable too. The robust hood with double pop-out sun visor will protect your child against the elements. The City Tour can be folded even with the seat in whichever direction. Although the folded City Tour Lux is a bit bigger than the City Tour, it is still a lightweight stroller which can easily fit into the boot of a small car. The folded City Tour Lux can be easily carried either by the carry strap, by the shoulder strap or on your back in the travel bag which is also the only included accessory. The travel bag is conveniently stored in the pocket of the shopping basket. Other accessories including the rain cover and the bumper bar are available separately.

A new hard carrycot and a car seat with adapters can be attached to the chassis, making the City Tour Lux a travel system suitable from birth. The carrycot folds in half to reduce the storage space and can be even folded with the stroller. The City Tour Lux is not only a convenient secondary stroller but also an alternative to a full-size stroller system for active urban parents with limited storage space.

parents say thx^^
  • Compact after folding
  • Able to stand after folded
  • Collapsible gondola
  • Sunshade on 6m+ seat is horrible and will not stay up
  • Handbrake a little stiff

I was very excited to get this stroller as I've heard good things about the brand and the description fit what we were looking for. It maneuvered pretty well although a little too bumpy on uneven ground. Also did not do too well in snowy conditions. However, I was still very happy with it till we switched out the gondola (carrycot) for the seat unit 5 months later.

It is quite an open seat but the worst thing was the sunshade! It would not stay up at all when in recline and kept flopping down. I immediately listed the stroller for sale at a huge discount just to get rid of it and went on to purchase another brand. It was very disappointing because I believe the other strollers by Babyjogger are much better in quality.

Compact and easy to maneuver, but I don't think it's worth the money. There are a few things that are really annoying and inconvenient. It's unwieldy to open, and you definitely can't do it one-handed if holding your baby. The brake is on the handlebar and is really stiff. You sometimes need two hands just to turn the brake off and on. The shade hood doesn't stay in place and constantly flops back. If the baby is lying flat, the shade hood eventually falls completely back unless you constantly yank it back into place (which then wakes the baby). Other than it being compact when folded, I really don't understand why this has such good reviews. Really disappointed.

  • Lays completely flat
  • Easy manipulation
  • Super compact after folding
  • Large hood
  • Large basket
  • Front-wheel suspension
  • Reversible
  • The hood has only two positions - completely extended or completely folded down, nothing in between
  • I miss some kind of a plastic footrest for bigger children

A super compact little stroller. Good to push, good driveability. But I feel like they didn't do anything 100% - I am used to a higher standard with the Baby Jogger brand.

When the child is sitting, and you want it to be completely covered, just open up the sun visor - and there it is, a full-coverage shade. The chassis can be folded down with the seat unit in any direction. Overall, I rate it quite high, since I am using it (for me) unusually long :-)

Your questions about the Baby Jogger City Tour Lux

1)

Hi,

How many kg baby can use this pushchair? My baby is 14 kg. Is it possible to use?

Hey, Reina,

This stroller is originally meant for up to 15 kg of weight of the child. I believe its frame can survive a few more (e.g., 16-17 kg in the seat); however, the seat itself is not too large. A 14 kg child will already be quite stuffed into it, with not much space for the legs and on the sides. So you should be able to fit your child but I wouldn't suggest getting this model, nor any other reversible seat stroller, for a 14kg child.

Do consider something world-facing, mid-size - e.g. a Baby Jogger City Mini2 or an Oyster Zero, if you want enough space for your baby.

Can I buy the chassis only?

Hi,

Normally, you can't, no. If you need it for a particular reason (like yours got broken etc.), I would suggest contacting a Baby Jogger distributor (or contact the Baby Jogger's customer service directly) and ask if they could order you the chassis as a spare part (arguing with your problem/a faulty frame - and the want to stay with the pushchair you already own). You probably will need to pay a fee for that, but it's your best bet.

Most distributors can order parts like these - the more so with the world-famous brands.

Can I buy the chassis only?

Hello, there!

The frame itself is not sold separately - if you need it as a travel system only (just the chassis with a car seat), I would call/email a retailer if that option is possible (maybe he can order the chassis as a "spare" part if it's an official distribution - or if you maybe try Baby Jogger directly), but I wouldn't expect much, really. It may be that this option won't be that cost-effective - and you can always sell the whole pushchair better after you're done with it.

Does it meet the requirements of carry on luggage ?

Hello, this always depends on the airline, which you need to check the requirements with, but overall, no, the folded width of 17.71 in and the folded length of 22.04 in making it not acceptable as hand luggage by quite a few airlines. They will take it from you when you enter the plane and give it back to you when getting out, mostly.
