The Chicco C6 Stroller is exactly what it seems: a simple, and lightweight stroller that can be bought on a budget. This stroller brings convenience and pleasant simplicity to you and your little ones strolling experience. That, however, is where the grandness ends. This stroller lacks some simple amenities and thoughtfulness in quality and build that users would expect from more luxurious or even standard strollers. The stroller is light and has an easy fold but no adjustable handles and an awkward build that leaves users kicking the back of the stroller when walking behind it.

Durability

Excellent – 6/10

Being that there Is not much to this strollers build, it actually is fairly durable. However, heavy use is not advised for this lightweight, aluminum frame stroller.

Weight

Excellent – 9/10

This stroller scores high for the weight category as it is most likely its strongest facet. This stroller weighs in at only 12 pounds allowing it to easily be carried and transported around when traveling.

Brakes

Good – 6/10

Most users report issues with the somewhat giving brakes that do not lock too well and at times, hard to release.

Compact

Very Good – 8/10

Partnering with its light weight, this stroller is also incredibly compact when folded. This comes in handy when packing it in your car trunk or storing it when not in use.

“I’m 5’3” and the handles are comfortable. If you’re tall or have long arms, the handles may be too low. What I do like is that it is lightweight and rides smooth yet sturdy for traveling.”

Ease of Use

Very Good – 8/10

Because this stroller is so simple and convenient, almost every part of it is easy to use and rather intuitive.

Folding

Very Good – 7/10

The Chicco C6 stroller has an easy fold and one that can be done speedily with two hands.

Grip

Very Good – 7/10

This stroller uses two separate short handlebars instead of one continuous ones that spans the width of the stroller. The handlebars are padded and have good grips however are not extendable and thus feel like they are at an awkward length relevant to the body of the stroller.

Maneuverability

Very Good – 8/10

Maneuverability is no issue with this stroller. The front wheels lock if needed and all four wheels have suspension. It also helps that the stroller is only 12 pounds which means there is only minimal effort needed to push the stroller around.

“If you are going to travel by air, I would highly recommend this stroller. It is lightweight, convenient and easy to pack at the last minute before boarding a plane.”

Rough Terrain

Fair – 4/10

It might not come as a surprise that this lightweight stroller is only meant for lightweight use. This means that the stroller struggles during heavy outdoor use like being strolled off-road.

Accessories

Good – 5/10

You get what you pay for with this stroller. There are no cup holders, no parent organizer tray, and minimal storage. This is to be expected as the is a budget stroller.

Easy to Assemble

Excellent – 9/10

Assembly is almost non-existent for this stroller. The folder comes almost fully assembled with users reporting some trouble with only putting on the canopy.

Easy to Clean

Excellent – 9/10

Cleaning is also a breeze with this stroller as its simple build contains a compliant, easy to wipe fabric.

“The stroller is comfortable enough that our child slept on it with jet lag for nearly a good 5 hours when we were walking around the Louvre.”

Storage

Good – 6/10

The storage basket is actually somewhat sufficient for this compact stroller. Users report that they can hold some minimal items in it but nothing more.

Child Comfort

Very Good – 7/10

The child’s seat is comfortable for your little one as well as the stroller handles. What is uncomfortable is the dimensions of the stroller leaving users banging their feet and legs into the back of the stroller because it does not extend far back enough.

Sun Canopy

Good – 6/10

The canopy is rather short and does not extend much further and so only covers the sun from above. The big advantage of the canopy is that it is removable which does mean there is some customizability.

Suspension

Fair – 4/10

This stroller does come with all wheel suspension however in practice, they do not seem to be all that useful. Their performance is lackluster as users do report that the rides do end up being bumpy on less than perfect surfaces.


What do experts say?

“It’s an easy-to-maneuver, fast-fold umbrella stroller that’s got the basics down—with a little added bit of flair that even this second-time mom can’t refuse. Plus it’s super lightweight at only 11 pounds, which is definitely on the lighter end—depending on how many features they have, umbrella strollers range from 7 to 20 pounds” – The Bump

“I’ve seen a lot of lightweight baby strollers, and for the money, the Chicco C6 stroller is a great option without too many bells and whistles. If you think a baby umbrella stroller is the most practical choice for your lifestyle, I think this stroller is fabulous!” – Cloud Mom
