The UPPAbaby G-LUXE is a compact and lightweight stroller. It has a lightweight aluminum frame, a reclining seat with an adjustable canopy, four twin wheels, an under-seat basket, and a foot brake. G-LUXE, like every other UPPAbaby stroller, offers numerous useful functions and is versatile.

First and foremost, the manufacturer claims that this stroller is suited for babies as young as three months old and can handle a passenger weighing up to 55 pounds. The stroller as a whole is relatively compact and modest. It is 19.5″ wide and weighs 15 pounds, so it can fit through narrow areas and is easy to lift. The UPPAbaby G-LUXE is small enough to be portable and ideal for travel, yet large enough to be quite functional.

Features of the UPPAbaby G-LUXE Stroller

If you’re looking for a quality umbrella stroller, you’ll probably notice many kids being pushed in the G-Luxe. This particular model has been designed with safety and convenience in mind, making it one of the best strollers for kids available on the market today. The G-Luxe has a sturdy steel frame and durable fabrics that will stand up to the test of time.

It’s easy to see why this product has such a high approval rating with parents. It has many features that are designed to make it comfortable for children, including a reclining seat-back, machine washable materials, and a strap for carrying.

Folding and Carrying

The only downsides to the G-Luxe are its less-than-ideal folding process and a more expensive price tag when compared to other strollers in the same market. The UPPAbaby G-luxe, like all of their strollers, employs a similar folding process that can be challenging to master at first but is still an excellent choice due to its high-quality construction and excellent performance. You need to use your index finger to push the button and both of your middle fingers on the levers on each handle. You cannot do this with one hand.

The G-Luxe has a slim profile of 12.5 inches wide and is small enough to fit in the trunk of your car or tuck away in a doorway. The G-Luxe includes a latching clip on the right side to keep the stroller folded, and it can stand on its own, which can be a major benefit if you’re tucking it in tight spaces.

The G-Luxe is a lightweight umbrella stroller that weighs 15 pounds and sits on the lightweight end of the spectrum among other similar products. It has a built-in carrying strap that hooks over one shoulder and can be used for easy transport by those who are on the go.

Maneuverability, Wheels, and Brakes

The G-Luxe is quite easy to push on a number of surfaces, like concrete walkways, hardwood flooring, gravel, and grass, which is especially surprising given the fact that it has two handles.

The wheels, comprised of robust hard rubber material, provide sufficient traction in most conditions but are not the best option for use in snow.

While the front wheels are able to swivel, they may be locked into position so that they only travel in one direction, making it easier to navigate uneven terrain.

The brakes on the G-Luxe are very solid and stable, making them very easy to use. When locking the stroller in place, you need to step down on a small pedal on the right tire and then raise it back up when you’re ready to go.

Reclining Seats and Leg Rest

The G-Luxe recliner offers three positions: fully reclined, upright, and a “relaxed” posture in between.

Switching between recline configurations is very easy and can be done with a single hand by squeezing the lever at the side of the chair. The leg rest may also be adjusted by squeezing both sides, and it can be set to any position – whether you prefer to have it flat or at an angle that is level with the seat!

A reclined seating position with a fully upright leg-rest makes for an excellent napping surface.


On rainy or sunny days, a G-Luxe folding canopy is a great option for covering the majority of your child’s body. The canopy has an extended sunshade that offers UPF 50+ protection and it can be stowed away when not in use.

No matter the stroller you have, it is important to get a rain cover. The canopy on this stroller opens and closes quietly so you won’t wake up your sleeping baby. The canopy on this stroller lacks a peek-a-boo window which makes it difficult to check on your child.


If you use your stroller on a daily basis, it can become very dirty. one of the G-Luxe’s main features is the seat pad which is made out of easy-to-clean materials and replaceable fabric.

In addition to being able to quickly remove the seat pad from the stroller and throw it in the washing machine in less than a minute so that it’s fresh and clean again, the stroller is still usable when there is no seat pad attached.


When it comes to transporting children, they need a lot of items with them, so a good storage space in a stroller is important. The G-Luxe has an easily accessible under-seat basket with a weight limitation of 10 pounds.

The G-Luxe has a cup holder that is easy to install and can securely attach to the stroller frame, making it easy for parents to store their drinks and keep fueling themselves with those long adventures.


The G-Luxe’s 5-point safety harness is quite easy to close and secure and can be done with just two clicks. It provides a very high level of safety while still feeling comfortable to wear.

As your child continues to grow and mature, you may have to adjust the harness size so that it fits them properly. This can be done in less than five minutes with a few simple adjustments.


There is little doubt that the G- Luxe’s features set it apart from the usual stroller. Its capacity to stand upright and be out of the way when not needed is a huge plus. The flip-out sun visor is a practical and stylish way to shade your youngster without having to buy or carry a third-party shade. And the incredibly lightweight is manageable for anyone tall, short, young, or old.
