The Fox is a luxurious yet practical stroller from Bugaboo, the Dutch company known for strollers that look good and push even better.

Launching in October 2021, the Bugaboo Fox3 model introduces new colors and styling, as well as updated fabrics that add both fashion and function.

We'll review the differences between the two models in this Bugaboo Fox3 vs. Bugaboo Fox2 comparison.

Bugaboo Fox3 vs. Bugaboo Fox2 Price

Most colors of the Bugaboo Fox3 are priced at $1,299, with two exceptions: the Midnight Black/Aluminum color ($100 less) and the special-edition Washed Black ($130 more).

The Fox2 has varying price points based on the color of the frame, with the aluminum priced $100 less than the black frame. Now that all but one color of the Fox3 includes a black or graphite frame, pricing is more consistent.

Bugaboo Fox3 vs. Bugaboo Fox2 Fabrics and Materials

The Bugaboo Fox3 builds on the Fox2 with three fabric changes.

The stroller chassis is the same for the Fox2 and Fox3, and all parts—such as canopies, accessories and car seat adapters—are interchangeable between models.

Bassinet

The back of the bassinet now opens to reveal a large mesh panel, which provides more air flow—and a glimpse of the world—for your newborn. Simply lift a flap at the back of the bassinet to open the panel, or keep it closed when the weather is cool.

As with the Fox2, the canopy also has a ventilated peek-a-boo window for additional airflow.

Seat Padding

Extra padding, as well as new fabrics that are softer and water-repellant, makes the stroller more comfortable.

Harness

A new harness with softer shoulder pads and straps that connect independently makes it easier to help your child in and out.

Bugaboo Fox3 vs. Bugaboo Fox2 Colors

The Bugaboo Fox3 introduces new colors for every component of the stroller, including the chassis, seat fabrics and canopy.

Bugaboo offers two versions of the Fox3: a simplified one-box stroller available in six neutral colors, as well as a build-your-own option consisting of two boxes: a base (which includes the chassis and seat/bassinet fabrics) and a canopy.

The base colors for the Bugaboo Fox3 include a new frame color, Graphite, which replaces the Fox2's Aluminum frame:

  • Graphite Gray chassis with Grey Melange fabrics
  • Graphite Gray chassis with Midnight Black fabrics
  • Black chassis with Grey Melange fabrics
  • Black chassis with Midnight Black fabrics

The canopy comes in seven colors, five of which are new for the Fox3:

  • Stormy Blue (new)
  • Morning Pink (new)
  • Forest Green (new)
  • Sunrise Red (new)
  • Misty White (new)
  • Midnight Black
  • Grey Melange

  • Graphite Gray chassis with Grey Melange fabrics and canopy
  • Black chassis with Midnight Black fabrics and canopy
  • Graphite Gray chassis with Stormy Blue fabrics and canopy
  • Black chassis with Midnight Black fabrics and Misty White canopy
  • Aluminum chassis with Midnight Black fabrics and canopy
  • Black chassis with Refined Black Mineral Collection fabrics and canopy (special edition)

These colors for the Bugaboo Fox2 have been discontinued, so act fast if they're your favorites:

  • Aluminum Silver chassis
  • Vapor Blue canopy
  • Fresh White canopy
  • Red canopy
  • Soft Pink canopy
  • Taupe Mineral Collection special-edition stroller

  • Folded (one piece): 18.5" x 23.6" x 35.4"
