Combi Cabria Review

  • Dec 9, 2011

Combi, Thanks

I've long been a Combi fan. Readers of my "2012 BIG Stroller Roll-Out" know that I took a circa '98 Jungle Savvy Z to the Expo this year. It's always a tricky choice, because no matter what I take, people will say, "Why aren't you pushing mine?" So I figure if I take an old classic, then they will think I am just eccentric, and not playing favorites.

But it was a great choice, anyway. Ultra light, carry strap, great one-handed push.

And the new Cabria has a lot more features than the Savvy Z, like this peekaboo mesh window,

Snack tray,

Bigger wheels,

And bigger basket.

In fact, why don't I do a more thorough comparison to an older Ultra Savvy--yes, I have that one, too!

Actually,  I have three older Combis, and two newer ones. So I guess it's time to say thanks, for all the great strolls we've had together.

And enjoy the beautiful fall leaves!

Combi Comparison


 At first glance, they look quite a bit alike. But take a closer look.

The Cabria is quite a bit bigger, as you can see more clearly from the rear.  

 The basket is not only larger, but more accessible.


 The frame is longer, and the wheels are bigger. And the handlebar on the Cabria is higher, to accommodate taller parents.

The most obvious huge difference, is the huge canopy. I'm so happy manufacturers have finally become so responsive to our "Please keep the sun off my baby" pleas. The canopy on the Ultra Savvy used to be about the best on the market!

 Both have thick padded seats, with headrests and shoulder pads. Both have breathable air mesh fabric. The frame color is black on the Cabria and silver on the Ultra. Although it is also black on my "Z's".

The recline is a bit less on the Cabrio. The mechanism is different, too. The Cabrio uses a drawstring, while the Ultra Savvy uses a push button. But both have this wonderful enclosure feature, to make a sort of kind of bassinette.

And both have snack trays, carry straps, and cupholders; albeit of a different type.

The Cabrio retains one of the best features ever. A single bar handle, that still folds flat into a "Tri-Fold", rather than a "Book fold." It stands folded, and the wheels stay on the ground, so they don't make your 

canopy dirty!

Since it accommodates taller parents, I'm going to have to share this with my cousin and her hubby- both pretty tall. Thanks :)
