City Mini GT vs UPPAbaby Cruz?

DH and I spent hours in BBB tonight. We narrowed down our choices to either the City Mini GT or UPPAbaby Cruz. The price difference is only $100, so it's not really a factor. Biggest issue for me with the City Mini is the basket; It is sooooo tiny! I love the easy fold though. The Cruz has a HUGE basket, which I think will be very useful. I'd really love to hear your thoughts about each.

I'm an Uppababy fan. I have the Vista abd love it.
I wasn't crazy bout how the citi minis seat is sort of reclined, I wanted the option of LO sitting straight up. Like you also said, the basket is huge.

Good luck with your decision.

Re: City Mini GT vs UPPAbaby Cruz?

We were debating between the exact same two strollers...we picked the Cruz.

City Mini by far has the better fold - SO EASY and light, but the downsides to us were the smaller basket and the lack of structure in the seat (which makes it lighter).

The UppaBaby Cruz has most features of the Vista except bigger wheels and bassinet attachment, but we're going to use the infant car seat on it for a little while first anyway. The seat is great / sturdy and has a ton of adjustment options, and the basket is ridiculously huge.

After hearing raves, the City Mini was the first stroller I checked out. I couldn't handle the tiny basket and I didn't like the wheels. After spending DAYS in the stroller department of BBB, I decided on the UppaBaby Vista, but I also thought the Cruz was a great option.
