2019 UPPAbaby CRUZ Stroller
The 2019 UPPAbaby Cruz stroller sports a streamlined design that’s more compact than its big sister Vista, yet without compromise. Its slim design has long made the Cruz a customer favorite, especially in urban areas where space is a key consideration, allowing you to fit through narrow doorways and crowded streets. Despite its slimmer outer design, the Cruz sports a spacious stroller seat, a tall telescoping handle, and sizable under-carry basket, allowing parents to travel comfortably on the go with all of Baby’s toys, outfits and feeding goods.
2019 Cruz stroller enhancements:
All Cruz style options include the recently-upgraded 100% premium leather accents (more on leather below). In 2017, we were enthralled with the Cruz Gregory’s Saddle leather handlebar and bumper bar covers against a blue mélange backdrop and so it’s no surprise that all UPPAbaby Cruz options share this upgrade now.

Features of the 2019 UPPAbaby Cruz stroller:
Stroller positions. Switch the stroller seat (also called the “toddler seat”) with ease from forward facing (also called “world facing”) mode to parent facing (also called “backwards riding”) mode.
Compatible with Mesa Car Seat, no attachments necessary. The UPPAbaby Cruz stroller is compatible with the Mesa Car Seat, the car seat easily clicks and locks in making it an all-around travel system from birth to 50 lbs.
Recline/Upright. A one-handed recline feature is available just behind the stroller seat. If baby seems to be ready for a snooze, push the stroller with one hand and recline with the other for minimal disruption, it’s that easy. Designed with multiple recline positions, Baby can enjoy sitting upright for curious stroll days, to resting in full recline mode.
UPF 50+ Sunshade. UPPAbaby’s traditional pop-out sunshade built into the canopy creates extensive coverage on a moment’s notice.
Height-adjustable canopy. This is cleverly designed for maximum coverage, allowing the canopy to be closer to Baby at an earlier age, and moving higher with growing children.
Telescoping Handle. Adjustable with just one hand, the handle extends quite high, making it an even easier and lighter ride.
Flat, Stand-up Fold. The stroller’s telescoping handle doubles in functionality, just like the UPPAbaby Vista. Extend the handle all the way up, easily collapse the stroller into a flat-fold position that stands! It’s a major space saver in restaurants, at grandmother’s house or likely most importantly, at the entryway of your home. Good-bye, bulky strollers…
All Weather Protection for Baby. The Cruz stroller comes with its own tailor-made rain shield and bug shield, providing protection for all weathers.
Large “easy-access” Basket. The Cruz basket has a deep design and sits almost as wide as the stroller, providing plenty of space for your diaper bag, Baby’s toys, and the works.
Large Mesh Peek-a-Boo Window. This feature of the stroller is uniquely designed. The peek-a-boo window cover rolls up and tucks away, allowing both additional ventilation for Baby and a sizable peek-a-boo window for parents.
Deeper Seat and Longer Footrest. This feature is not talked about much on the surface, but actually happens to be a customer favorite. The deeper seat accommodates growing children much more effectively than many other strollers out there. The deeper seat creates more sitting real estate, and allows your child to have more room and sit more comfortably through growth stages.
Machine Washable Fabric. This is especially important in a stroller like the UPPAbaby Cruz (and the Vista, for that matter). UPPAbaby customers tend to keep their strollers for rather long, and we routinely meet customers who are using their UPPAbaby stroller from many years ago. The fabrics for both stroller seat and bassinet are machine washable , with exception of the canopy, helping to make the Cruz a more durable stroller for years to come.
Our take on the UPPAbaby Cruz features:
LEATHER. This really deserves a discussion of its own as UPPAbaby strollers are made with 100% full grain leather, as opposed to faux leather counterparts that are “leather like” or of a “leather look”. This provides the Cruz with far more softness, breathability and longevity. The Cruz stroller sports a wide leather handlebar and stylish leather bumper bar. All UPPAbaby leather accents are REACH CERTIFIED, and “GOLD” rated by the Leather Working Group. Reach is a European certification standard that oversees and restricts the use of toxic chemicals in manufactured products. The Leather Working Group is an international organization within the leather industry that develops and maintains protocols for environmentally sustainable business practices. In 2017, UPPAbaby debuted three Cruz stroller models with leather and it’s no surprise that these accents will now come standard with your choice of beautiful fabric options.
