Read any list of top strollers and you're bound to encounter the City Mini GT from Baby Jogger.

The compact City Mini GT folds with one hand in one step, making it a breeze to stash in your trunk when you're on the go. And wherever you're heading, the City Mini GT can keep up, thanks to its foam-filled, all-terrain wheels—an upgrade over the smaller, plastic wheels on its City Mini counterpart.

But while both versions have long been best-sellers, neither has seen an upgrade in years—not since 2008 for the City Mini and 2012 for the City Mini GT.

In April 2019, Baby Jogger introduced the second iterations of both strollers, now called the City Mini GT 2 and City Mini 2.

The new-and-improved City Mini GT 2 sports a modernized look with upgraded fabrics, improved maneuverability with all-wheel suspension, and other new features like a standing fold, adjustable calf support, and included car seat adapters.

Which City Mini GT is right for you? We'll compare both models in this comparison.

For 2019, Baby Jogger is modernizing the look of both the City Mini GT 2 and City Mini 2 with an all-new design and upgraded fabrics.

Both models are available in a new range of neutral colors, a change over the previous model's bright color palette. The 2019 City Mini GT 2 features a black frame, which gives the stroller a more sophisticated look.

The 2019 City Mini GT 2 is available in these new colors:

  • Jet (black)
  • Slate (black with gray seat)
  • Windsor (black with blue seat)
  • Ember (black with red seat)

2019 City Mini GT 2 vs. 2018 City Mini GT Fold

Both the 2019 and 2018 models are among the simplest strollers to fold: Just pull up on a strap in the seat, and the stroller instantly folds in half.

New for the 2019 model is a self-standing fold that prevents your stroller fabrics from getting dirty when touching the ground. Plus, the standing fold makes it easier on parents (and their backs) when lifting the stroller into the car.

2019 City Mini GT vs. 2018 City Mini Calf Support

The 2019 model adds an adjustable calf support to the City Mini GT for the first time. Unlike the previous model, which has a seat with no moving parts, the leg rest on the 2019 City Mini GT 2 can be adjusted to support your child's legs as she grows.

Thanks to the adjustable calf support, the basket of the 2019 stroller can now be accessed from all sides of the stroller—making the basket a little more convenient than on the 2018 version, which can't be accessed from the front.

2019 City Mini GT 2 vs. 2018 City Mini Suspension and Maneuverability

The 2019 City Mini GT 2 has all-wheel suspension, an upgrade over the front-wheel suspension found on the 2018 version. While both versions have sturdy all-terrain wheels, the added suspension enhances the maneuverability of the 2019 stroller, making it a smoother ride over all types of surfaces.
