The stroller is great it’s kinda. Bulky and hard to store ,but it is great when out of town,hiking or if your one to go jogging It’s easy to take up and down. I’m pretty happy with it. I think if it was more compacted it would be better. I’m pretty happy with the build quality overall.
Good but heavy
Positives are that pram can be folded with one hand, it is quite agile and easy to manoeuvre, the front wheel can be locked into place for rougher terrain or left to rotate for extra manoeuvrability when out shopping. The wheels are quite large and rubber which doesn’t need air inflation and is very sturdy on unsealed roads and bumpy terrain, pram can be used for running. Negatives are that pram is quite heavy, about 11-12kg so although it can be folded with one hand it’s too heavy to lift it up into the car boot with one hand. And using this w...ith a capsule converter and capsule with a child in it becomes very heavy so less good on rough terrain and more of an effort to push across bumps. Can lay flat for a newborn but doesn’t parent face unless you buy the bassinet attachment so isn’t as practical for babies who want to see mum or dad while out walking.
Love it, best investment
Love it, so easy to manoeuvre over any terrain. Foam filled tyres mean no punctures. Baby loves to be in pram. Easy one hand fold. Can be bulky for shopping centre use (but that is minimal for us). Is a very stabile pram with large seat for toddler or can be used from birth. Very easy to clean!!
My favorite pram
Ive had 4 prams now and the city elite is by far my favorite. So ridiculously easy to maneuver you could steer it with 1 finger. Simple pull of the handle on the seat and it folds up quickly and compact enough. I regretfully sold my first city elite i owned but will definitely be buying another. Only down side for me with this pram is that it doesn't come in a double.
Love my new pram
I love this pram! It's easy to stroll around and very comfy for baby. The pram is quite heavy and I find it difficult to fold and put it into the car. It's perfect for going to the park and love the fact that hood is extra long for better shade. Overall very happy with pram and the quality.
Was a bit hesitant to spend so much on a pram but so glad we did. This pram is fantastic. We got it from baby bunting on sale. I do a lot of walking over rough ground and the foam wheels handle it perfectly. Very smooth ride for baby. Love all the little extras like the easy to use hand brake, underneath basket, adjustable handlebars and the caddy that easily fits my phone, wallet, keys and drink bottle.
Only thing I would want to make others aware of is that this is a very big and bulky pram. You need a big car boot to fit it in and it's ver...
Baby Jogger City Elite
Great pram, never once regretted my purchase. Is comfortable both for the child and person pushing it. Also the top window in the hood and the side windows are a great feature.
This is easy and quick to fold and the wheels come off to make even smaller. Also easy to find a sale/discount
Perfect stroller, easy to drive!
This stroller is really easy to maneuver and control, you can literally drive it with one hand.
Easy to fold and put in the boot. Opens up easily, and simple steps to lock the stroller.
Ample storage basket under the stroller, and plenty of slots to put bottles and other things near the handle.
Adjustable handle .
Great upgrade from the MiniGT
Previously used the MiniGT and the larger wheels make travel around roughly terrain so much more comfortable and pleasant. The one handed fold is super useful but I wouldnt recommend this unless you planned to get out a lot because it is significantly heavier than the MiniGT. I also used the compatible rain covers and worked a treat.
November 26th 2019 Update: Great pram - 6 years and still in excellent condition
Great all rounder for both the city slicker and the off roader. Couldn't complain about anything. This pram is heavy and bulky so will take up the bulk of the space in your boot.
Purchased in August 2013.
Love how easy it is
I love this pram. Easy to fold, can go anywhere with it and super easy to push. I have used it for my first child and now using it on my second child although with a $1000 price tag it hasn't lasted as well as I thought. One side of pram has stopped clicking so has become unsafe until I get it fixed.
Good sturdy pram
We bought this pram 6 years ago. We found the pram very sturdy, best feature was the pump up tyres not hard plastic ones and could use one hand to collapse the hold thing. It had nice little features like peekaboo window with magnets and the foot rest could be put up or down. This pram does have downfalls though. It has a tiny under basket, nothing comes with the pram; you have to buy belly bar, food tray and rain and sun shade seperately, you can't add a second seat and this pram got easily sun damaged and looked awful. Overall pretty happy with it but not worth the $800 for pram and another $150 for extras.
Exercise partner for mother and comfort for baby
I am very happy with the purchase of Baby Jogger. It is designed to be on the go and get to exercise with the baby. It does what it says and it is very easy to maneuver. The hood is great and generous and the baby is always in the shade.I try to walk everyday and do a bay run, weather permitting, it is not easy to get in shape after the baby and the Baby Jogger is helping me to reach my exercise goals with less of an effort.
Soooo happy with the baby jogger city elite. It's so easy to manoeuvre. can handle any terrain. i love how big the hood is.
It's very easy to fold down.
I think it looks incredibly stylish.
Definitely worth the money. I also love that it has a high weight limit as my children are both big boys.
Awesome & worth the money.
Very stylish easy to manoeuvre. I walked a lot when Bub was born and wanted something to take me on all terrains, even the beach. After years of good use still as good as new. Highly recommended. There is an attachment for newbies that fits on top but I found that unnecessary. Bought rain cover and mosquito net.
Very good pram
We have found this pram to be durable, reliable and not just a little stylish! A joy to push and it eats up the most uneven terrain with ease. Highly recommended! Baby loves the pram as much as we do and we also bought the gliderboard for our elder daughter which she loves. Also very easy to fold and unfold and can do this one handed whilst still holding baby.
Best pram I've owned
The baby jogger city Elite is easy and quick to fold/unfold. The big hood is great for keeping the sun out. The storage basket could be bigger but overall very happy with the pram. The big wheels make it easy to manoeuvre over uneven surfaces making it great for off road walking.
Versatile and sturdy pram
This is a quality pram which can handle any terrain. It has great suspension and is so easy to manoeuvre even with just one hand. I can also easily fold and unfold the pram with one hand which makes it a breeze to use. Very happy with this pram. The Maxi Cosi capsule fits nicely into this pram with adaptors and the bug cover and rain cover are designed to fit quite well onto the pram.
Love our pram!
We love this pram, we live in a country town so our sidewalks are not as smooth as the city. This pram is excellent for taking our bub out and about!
There is loads of space, it’s comfortable for bub with a lay back option for nap times.
Only downfall is the front wheel, it tends to be hard to steer at times.

Another question about a recently purchased second-hand elite.... I noticed in a lot of pictures there is fabric that attaches to the bar/frame behind the canopy. The one I purchased does not have this extra piece of fabric. What is it’s purpose? Thanks!

I just purchased a 2015 city elite second hand (charcoal colour). It does not have the base and bum board - is it supposed to? Thanks!
Baby Jogger C.Baby Jogger
Good Morning, thank you for your question. The Elite did not come with these boards. You can purchase a back board for your pram from www.tabc.com.au . thank you
