Inglesina Swift Review

Fall Swift

It seemed like Autumn took forever to get here. Those 90 degree days may have something to do with it. Many of the trees are still green. I told StrollerPrince 2.0 they are confused. But at least, some are changing.
I think this new yellow Inglesina Swift blends in nicely with the leaves, don't you? And check out how tall that canopy is. So much headroom for S.P. 2.0.

I swooned when I saw this new color, with the cutest little circles on it.
It's so bright and cheerful, and features that Italian high-styling.
I mean, look at how the basket matches!

Look at the fabulous black frame!
With a good sized basket, that you can actually get into!

AND an automatic lock, and side carry handle. Like it's bigger sisters the Zippy, Avio, and Trip, the fold is really easy and fast. And see how small and compact it is when you close it up?

But wait, there's more! Check out this recline!

 It's done with rear sliders, rather than those drawstrings, which are tricky sometimes.
  Such attention to detail! That bubble design even carries through to the canopy.

   Speaking of which, notice this huge front sun visor? Wow!

On a stroller this light? Now that is something to shout about!

It also has a big, deep pocket on the rear.
 I put a yellow balloon in there, to try and show the depth.

Look at this! Even the graphics are classy.

You know how sometimes you want to squeeze a baby's cheek, because it's so soft? That's how I feel about these cushiony foam grip handles. The angle is really perfect ergonomically, and they feel really good in your hands.

 With all of these fabulous features, you would think that the Swift would be one of the pricier umbrella strollers out there. But you would be wrong. 
In fact, it is one of the least expensive! Now when was the last time something actually cost less than what you expected? Awesome.

 There's something about Inglesinas that just gets my heart racing. They are so elegant; so refined. There is no doubt that this is THE BEST budget stroller for 2013. I award the Swift 5 Crowns for that, hands down.

  1. what are the differences between the 2012 and 2013 models? (beside colours of course)

  2. would you recommend the swift or trip when deciding between the 2? Also is the difference in the 2012 major for the 2013?

  3. I bought a red ibiscus swift in 2012 and now I'm going to buy another one, and for sure the mimosa!!!! as difference from the last year, there is a bigger sun front visor which makes it PERFECT, just what babies needs! we wnet everywhere with this light stroller, it suitted every situation perfectly. I really recommend it. Hello to everyone , Giulia from Italy

  4. The difference between the Swift and Trip are the features. If you have the budget, get the Trip. Bigger wheels, deeper recline. But if you want to spend less, or get something lighter, then choose the Swift. It is a super good deal.
