Chicco Cortina Together Double Stroller Review:- User Reviews

The Chicco Cortina Together Double Stroller has received a rating of 4 out of 5 stars from users at babysrus.com, diapers.com, amazon.com, and target.com.

Chicco Cortina Together Double Tandem StrollerUsers have great things to say about the Chicco Cortina Together Tandem stroller and many have declared this stroller the “best double stroller ever” and say it is “worth every penny.”

Users say the Chicco Cortina double has all of the comforts of a single stroller, just multiplied by two.

The stroller is very easy to use with the Chicco Keyfit or the Chicco Keyfit 30 infant car seat—it just snaps into place—and they love that the rear seat reclines all the way.

This makes the seat safe for your baby during the times you don’t feel like using the stroller as a travel system.

It is also a great feature to have for when you need to perform diaper changes on the go.

Users love that the front seat is designated for your toddler and the rear seat for your baby.

Many other tandem strollers are designed for the baby to sit up front away from the stroller pusher, a seating arrangement that really irks many parents.

With the Chicco Cortina, your baby can sit close to you and your toddler can enjoy an upfront and close view of the world.

This is also a great stroller for use with twins since it can accommodate two infant car seats at the same time!

Users also report that for a double stroller, the Chicco Cortina is easy to maneuver, turns well, and, despite its small plastic wheels, handles sidewalk bumps well.

Several users say the stroller has great suspension and shock absorbency.

Many users feel the stroller is easy to fold and folds compact enough to fit in the trunk of most sedans.

The wheels and the canopies detach for a more compact fold.

One of the greatest features of this stroller, though, is that you can access the storage basket even when the rear seat is fully reclined.

Users really appreciate this design feature.  Overall, users say this is an “amazing double stroller.”

Chicco Cortina Together Double Stroller Review:- Negatives

There are some negative reviews, not too many, but these users all complain about the Chicco Cortina Together Tandem stroller for the same reason: the stroller is too heavy.  (But this is a double stroller—34 lbs is not too much for double).

Many users say they find the stroller just too heavy to steer, especially with two kids on board, and some users also have great difficulty lifting this stroller up into the trunk of their car.

Which then leads us into major complaint number two: the stroller does not fit in all car trunks because it is too large. Chicco Cortina Together Double Tandem Stroller

Before purchasing this stroller make sure that the folded measurements for this stroller match the size of your trunk space.

Lastly, many users, even those who love the stroller, hate that you have to detach the front canopy in order to fold the stroller.

It is not a big deal, but many users find this extra step annoying.

There are also a few desires for the Chicco Cortina double stroller.

Users would love to see the addition of a snack tray for the front toddler seat and they would also like the front toddler seat to have a better recline so that their toddler can have more comfortable naps.
