About - Maxi-Cosi Mila

The Maxi-Cosi Mila is part of the stroller test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, traditional stroller models like the Mila are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.

Ease of use:
Ease of use is based primarily on ease of using and adjusting the safety harness, folding and unfolding, adjusting backrest, lifting and carrying, engaging wheel brakes and car seat removal and installation (only for compatible strollers).

Maneuverability is assessed by trained testers, taking into account how well the strollers maneuvered S-turns through cones, narrow sections, grass, dirt trails, uphill, downhill and curbs while walking.

Safety is assessed by testing for compliance with the most current version of the standard, ASTM F833-13b, and stability and braking and other tests designed by Consumers Union.

This stroller works great for travel or daily use. After living overseas for nearly a decade, I was shocked when I moved back to the States and saw the absurd [large] standard size of American strollers. This Maxi-Cosi is the perfect size. It folds/unfolds ealisy in only a few seconds. There's a nice storage bin under the stroller and a pocket built into the back of the sun shade for storing keys, a cell phone, or anything else that you need in close reach. Our other stroller is a Bugaboo... the luxury stroller. While it offers a very smooth ride and handles well off-road, it's extrememly cumbersome to fold and unfold... and it takes up the entire trunk of our SUV. The Maxi-Cosi fills in the gaps where an off-road stroller isn't needed. I'm a bit surprised that the CR review lists the lack of a snack bar as a low point. Since when did a tray full of food become a necessity, on a stroller, for child and parent!?
