Welcome to theDaddy.Guide’s Baby Jogger City Select LUX Review 2017, ***New for 2017***! The original Baby Jogger City Select was a fine stroller, however, the 2017 LUX has addressed the few items that were lacking! The Baby Jogger City Select (the original) is a single stroller with reversible seat and able to accommodate a second child (and 3rd!) as your family grows. The City Select LUX can accommodate a car seat, bassinet second seat (acts as an in-line double stroller) plus the piggy board for when the first one hits toddler-hood (which is a word I just made up).
Either way, this stroller packs a lot of punch, it’s scales with the family and it rivals one of theDaddy.Guide’s favorites, the UPPAbaby Vista 2017. Also it should be noted that it’s in direct competition with the Britax B-Ready (which is all new for 2017 as well).
The original Baby Jogger City Select was put out in 2013, and the updated LUX model has filled a lot of the holes that City Select was lacking. Everything has changed on this model from it’s good looks and functionality to much needed additional features. With all the new additions the City Select LUX is going to be major competition for the Britax B-Ready 2017 and UPPAbaby Vista 2017.
One final note, keep in mind that the Baby Jogger is designed for every day use and can take it’s licks on multiple terrains and surfaces. Don’t be mistaken with the name “Baby Jogger” that this is a jogging stroller. The City Select LUX does come with a newly designed wheel set and is capable of getting it’s hands a bit dirty, but this is an everyday versatile stroller with some awesome features!
What’s new for 2017?
The fold – It’s definitely more compact (30% more compact to be exact). Also comes with an automatic lock.
All wheel suspension – The 2017 has upgraded suspension and rides much smoother!
20 Seat Combination – The City Select had 16 different seat combination. With the addition of the ‘board’ there are 4 more configuration setups available that bring even more variation and flexibility to the Lux model.
Wheels – Rear wheels are slightly larger and have a new design.
Seat Fabric – The new fabric feels much more plush and feels of higher quality.
Hand Break – Decelerating and Parking hand break in one.
What features stayed the same?
Large canopy, adjustable handle bar, mesh peekaboo window with magnetic closure (no velcro!), large basket, large all-terrain wheels.
Baby Jogger City Select comes in 4 gorgeous colors. And, yes, I just called a stroller ‘gorgeous’:
Slate, Taupe, Port and Granite.
Baby Jogger City Select LUX Features
Seat size is 12″ wide with an 18″ seat back and 22″ from the back of the seat to the top of the canopy.
Designed as a one-hand lever recline that is deep, but does not fully recline to a flat position. Due to the lack a fully recline-able position the City Select LUX is indicated from 6 months and up to 45 lbs. If you’re looking to use the City Select LUX for a newborn, you’ll need to purchase the bassinet or infant car seat. This seat is reversible which gives you the flexibility to face inwards or outwards.
The fabric has been updated; it’s much softer and more luxurious than the original City Select model.
The canopy is 3 panel UV 50+ which you’ll notice goes down to the bumper bar. Major props to the strollers with large canopies as we live in Miami and sun protection is key! Also comes with a large peekaboo window with a magnetic closure (no velcro!) and an additional magnet at the top to hold the window open.
Adjustable handle bar
It has an adjustable telescoping handle bar, meaning you can pull it up. It goes from 38.5″ up to 42.5″ (now better for taller parents).
There is a medium size pocket located on the back of the seat for small items. You can add on a parent console and/or a cup holder for an additional cost. One of the few ‘CONS’ of this stroller is that not much in included. The back storage pocket is adequate, but you may want to add-on.
The City Select LUX can modify to an in-line double stroller, meaning you can add a second seat for a second child. For 2017 there are 20 different seat combinations vs. the previous models 16 seat combinations which gives you significantly more options. It can be used with two main seats, two bassinets, two infant car seats or with a new jump seat.
Slight update to the adapters for the 2017 LUX model. The adapter covers are built in so automatically are covered when there is nothing in the adapters. An aesthetic change, but kinda cool.
5 point harness
Adjustable 9.25″ foot rest with 4 different locking positions.
Nice sized large basket (very easily accessible) with two zippers in the back which allows you to expand the basket size even further. The second seat add on is in front of the primary seat, so access to the basket isn’t compromised at all with the addition of a second seat. Good lookin’ out Baby Jogger.
the LUX model comes with slightly larger wheels and forever-air tires (no flats!)as they are filled with a foam instead of air. The Baby Jogger City Select LUX also allows for the front wheels to swivel or they can be locked straight into a fixed position.
Updated hand break and was moved on the handle bar instead of being on the side of the frame.
The fold is easy, but you will need both hands. It’s now 30% more compact than the older model. Both seats fold in half now. To further make it more compact, the seat and the rear wheels come off when you want to store it.
