The main differences:

  • The UPPAbaby Cruz 2017 Pushchair now features Poly Urethane wheels opposed to the 2015 Airgo type
  • Half an inch has been removed from the width of the 2017 model meaning it is only 22″ wide
  • The sunshade can now be locked in place and is made from woven fabric instead of the previous polyester

 

What’s the same?

There is a lot that the UPPAbaby Cruz 2015 and 2017 have in common. Both are suitable from birth with the use of the UPPAbaby Universal Carrycot. They both have a lifespan of until your baby is 15kg, so they are equal in regards to value for money. Adaptability is similar in regards to the recline options, accessory compatibility and rearward facing as well as forward facing modes.

All of the accessories you have for your 2015 UPPAbaby Cruz Pushchair will be compatible with the 2017 version.

Storage is simple for both models. Both can be folded with the seat unit still attached and both stand once folded.

 

Ride

The wheels on both models will never go flat. The 2015 model features AirGo wheels which mimic the cushioned ride of an air filled tyre with the benefit of being lightweight thanks to the foam used. On the 2017 model the wheels are Poly Urethane, which takes the comfort and handling of the UPPAbaby Cruz to the next level.

Sun Canopy

The sun canopy on the 2017 model is now made from woven fabric instead of the polyester previously used on the 2015 model. This change means that the sun canopy creases less, which keeps your pushchair looking good at all times.

Size

The UPPAbaby Cruz has always been lightweight and fairly compact. UPPAbaby have managed to make the 2017 model half an inch narrower meaning it is now only 22″ wide. Both models only weigh 9.8kg so the UPPAbaby Cruz is very lightweight.

 

Style

UPPAbaby have introduced a new range of colours for the 2017 model of the Cruz. Austin Hunter Green, Gregory Blue Marl, Dennison Burgundy, and Loic White are now all available. Some of these colours come with a leather bumper bar and handlebar cover.

Overall

UPPAbaby have made a fantastic pushchair in the UPPAbaby Cruz. Both, the 2015 and 2017, models are great pushchairs. The new colours make the 2017 model extra stylish and with the new woven fabric sun canopy, you will look even more stylish. The subtle improvements made by UPPAbaby show the level of detail they have been prepared to go to in order to make a great pushchair even better. They have certainly done this with the Cruz.
