Baby Jogger City Select vs. City Select LUX

The Baby Jogger City Select has been one of the most popular strollers on the market for years for many reasons, one of which being its ability to adapt and grow with your family. A couple years ago, Baby Jogger introduced the City Select LUX, which offers a few upgrades over the original City Select. 

We often get asked the difference between the two strollers, so we're breaking it down for you!

One of the most noticeable differences between the Baby Jogger City Select and Baby Jogger City Select LUX has always been the softer, higher-quality fabrics on the LUX. However, in early 2019, Baby Jogger stepped up their game and they have now introduced the same high-end fabric on the City Select. So, now what differentiates the two strollers? Let’s dive in!

COLOURWAYS

The City Select LUX is available in 4 colourways: Slate, Granite, Taupe and Port

The City Select has just been released in 5 new colourways:

Aside from the fabrics, differences between the two strollers lie in the fold, the number of configurations, the brake, the wheels and suspension and the compatibility of specific accessories.

FOLD

The City Select LUX folds 30% smaller than the City Select. This is because the seats on the City Select LUX fold in on themselves, whereas the seats on the City Select don’t have the option of folding.

CONFIGURATIONS

The City Select LUX offers 20 seating configurations, and the City Select offers 16. The additional 4 seating configurations are made possible by the addition of a bench seat which accommodates children up to 65 pounds!

BRAKE

Both strollers use a handbrake, however the brake on the City Select LUX functions as a bicycle brake does, allowing you to squeeze slightly to decelerate or put the stroller in complete park. The City Select does not offer the ability to decelerate.

WHEELS & SUSPENSION

The City Select LUX comes equipped with 4 foam-filled wheels and all-wheel suspension, whereas the City Select offers only front-wheel suspension and plastic front wheels. You’ll notice the biggest difference when strolling on uneven terrain or grass.

ACCESSORIES

When Baby Jogger released the City Select LUX, they also released 3 new accessories: the bench seat, which accommodates children up to 65 pounds, a new cupholder with elastic that attaches to the side of the stroller as opposed to the handlebar, and a shopping tote that provides additional storage on the stroller and can support up to 10 pounds. 

So, which accessories work with which stroller?
