To properly judge these products, we’re going to put them head-to-head in some of their main features to see which one is better worth your money. What we’ll be looking at is design, practicality, comfort, and safety. Let’s get into it.

Bugaboo Fox 2


At first glance, the strollers look similar, that’s why we’re here to point the difference out. The Bugaboo Fox 2 comes in 9 different colorways, and all of them look very modern and sophisticated, so you can be sure that there’s one for your liking.

When it comes to the structure itself, the Bugaboo Fox 2 has the usual stroller look. The 4 wheels at the bottom, a big basket above them where you can store your goods, the base holding the bassinet, the bassinet itself, the canopies, and the handlebar.

Another important thing we consider when buying a stroller is its size, and these are the Bugaboo Fox 2’s dimensions:

  • Height: 108 centimeters
  • Width: 60 centimeters
  • Length: 105 centimeters

This stroller is light, having a weight of 9.9 kilograms.

Just like the premium product that it is, the materials are up to par. This stroller uses high-quality, soft, and breathable materials that are washable and toxin-free.

This stroller is practical for many reasons, one of the main ones being its lightweight and its foldability. Bugaboo Fox 2 is easily storable and is no hassle to carry around. You can fold the stroller by pressing the fold triggers and using the carry strap for easy mobility.

The advanced wheel suspension allows this stroller to ride smoothly even on bumpier roads or in other words, it’s multi-terrain. This also makes the stroller feel lighter and much easier to turn with.

The big basket at the bottom allows you to push the stroller without any distractions since you can put all your goods and bags in the basket. The materials on the Bugaboo Fox 2 are machine-washable, and they won’t see any damage. That makes keeping up with hygiene very easy.

It has a few canopies for different purposes. One is for UV protection, and another to keep the mosquitoes out. The seat also has reclining options that you can adjust by pulling the recline lever under the seat and adjusting the seat level by hand to keep your baby in its desired position. The Bugaboo Fox 2 accommodates infants up to 25 kilograms in weight, and the basket holds 10 kilograms.


When it comes to comfort, there’s not much better than the Bugaboo Fox 2. Its thick materials and inlay padding really are a treat for your little one. The all-wheel suspension allows for the smoothest ride, that can keep your baby asleep even on the bumpiest roads.


The Bugaboo Fox 2 has a 5-point safety harness, and a stable base to make sure your child is safe and sounds when riding in this stroller, though it is worth mentioning that you shouldn’t let your kid sleep in it overnight.

Bugaboo Fox 3


The Bugaboo Fox 3 offers you a whopping 30 style choices which means you have this stroller in pretty much any color you’d like, so there’s definitely one for you. There are some cheaper color options and some options that use aluminum that cost more.

The build is that of your usual stroller: 4 wheels, basket, bassinet base, bassinet, canopies, and handlebar, and the parts are even interchangeable between the two strollers.

Its size is similar to the Bugaboo Fox 2, with the dimensions being:

  • Height: 108 centimeters
  • Width: 60 centimeters
  • Length: 84 centimeters

Bugaboo Fox 3’s weight is the same as its predecessor’s, 9.9 kilograms.

The materials on the Fox 3 are the first improvement from the Fox 2 that we’ll mention. The seat padding uses new fabrics, that are thicker yet more breathable and water-repellent.

The Bugaboo Fox 3 is practical for the same reasons as the Bugaboo Fox 2. It’s also lightweight, and easily foldable with the same mechanics.

Another thing that they have upgraded on this stroller is the suspension, they have made little tweaks to the joints of the wheels to make pushing this stroller through any type of road, and turning with it even easier.

The back of the bassinet now has a flap that you can open and it gives you access to this mesh panel that makes the air in the bassinet more breathable. This stroller also uses machine-washable materials.

Taking your child in and out of this seat has never been easier. The Bugaboo Fox 3 uses a new harness system that makes each harness connect independently. The bassinet’s weight limit is also 22 kilograms, and the same goes for the basket at a 10-kilogram weight limit.

The canopies haven’t seen much change still having the anti-mosquito and the UV protective canopies, though there wasn’t much room where they could’ve improved. And yes, the little canopy window still stays. The reclining system is also still the same.


The safety department has seen one difference that we already mentioned, and that’s the harness system. The 5-point safety harness isn’t united anymore, instead, each harness is independent now, and we’ll leave that up to you to decide if it’s better or not.


Bugaboo Fox 3’s materials do have an upper hand on the Bugaboo Fox 2’s materials, so logically, the comfort is also better. The fabric is thicker and more breathable, and we can’t forget the upgraded wheel suspensions which will also help with your little one’s experience.

Other Things To Note

We have to mention that both products give a 2-year warranty for any manufacturing defects, and obviously as it is the newer product, the Bugaboo Fox 3 is a bit heftier in price, though the improvements are there to show.

Now, to conclude this comparison. The Bugaboo Fox 3 being the newer and improved stroller, it is a bit better when it comes to its functions but there is one big factor that plays a role here, and that’s the price. This we can say, is the deal-breaker.

The Bugaboo Fox 2 is almost half the price of its successor, and we believe that paying double the price is not worth the slight improvements you’ll get on the newer version, though if you’re working with a larger budget, it’s not a bad idea either considering there really are some noticeable upgrades.
