Chicco Bravo vs Viaro Travel System
There are dozens of different baby and toddler accessory manufacturers out there in the world, many who provides quality products and services to anyone and everyone who is in need of such products and items for their families, one of those companies is known as Chicco.
Chicco is one of the leading manufacturers of baby and toddler products; they produce products such as toys, health items, bassinets, strollers, and other items and accessories that babies and infants generally need for the first few years of their lives.
Because of that, we are going to go over two of their more popular and well-known strollers currently out on the market as of writing this article of ours.
We will cover the ups, the downs, and everything else in-between for these two particular stroller models that Chicco has released, those two models being the Chicco Bravo Trio, and the Chicco Viaro Travel System in that order.
Chicco Bravo vs Viaro
The main differences between the Bravo Trio and Viaro is that Chico Bravo has a car seat adapter, four wheels, all wheel suspension and is more expensive. Whereas the Chico Viaro does not have an adapter, has three wheels and only suspension on two wheels.
The Chicco Bravo Trio Review.
Out of the two models that we will compare, the Chicco Bravo Trio is the more popular of the two versions, being the newer ones on the block and getting more attention from the public as a result.
Not to mention is one of the more popular choices when it comes to travel systems due to its unique ability to be a stroller and a car seat as one near complete and total package, which I am sure a lot of parents and travelers can appreciate when moving from place to place.
Additionally, the entire system comes fitted with a few additional features that will make any parent and or guardian sing with happiness as they move throughout the world with their precious baby by their side.
Are you planning on going for a long car ride but hate having to have both a car seat and a full-fledged stroller in the trunk? That is not a problem with this particular model as one of the features that come with the Chicco Bravo Trio is the ability to remove the seat from the stroller and fit within your car via the car seat adapter.
On top of that, the Chicco Bravo Trio also has an extra-long, and thick canopy can be folded and stored with one hand. Heck, the wheels themselves and will automatically swivel when you turn the device. It is just an overall excellent travel system to own for your child.
Then again, we are talking about Chicco here. They are no slouch when talking about the way they design their products, and this stroller is no different. It is easily one of the best selling strollers not only by Chicco but also out on the market as a whole, not to mention whenever you look at the reviews for the device, most of what people are saying is nothing but positivity towards it and the company as a whole.
As such, it is hard not to recommend it already, but we got another stroller to look over, so let us see about that.
Chicco Viaro Key Travel System.
Now, the Chicco Viaro Key Travel System is not only a slightly older and more dated stroller in the Chicco catalog of travel strollers, but it is also the least popular of the models that we are comparing today. However, as someone who has never been that popular in school, I can tell you that there are things to like about the older and less popular models in everything-especially when it comes to strollers for babies and infants.
First off, since the Viaro has fallen out of favor with the general public in comparison to the Chicco Bravo Trio System, the Viaro is far more affordable for parents/guardians who might be on a stricter budget, especially given the price range of the Chicco Bravo Trio.
However, next to pricing, the Viaro is the lightest stroller travel system that Chicco has released to the public as of this day. This is thanks in part to the Viaro’s aluminum frame and body, making it extremely lightweight and easy to pack and store when the time comes.
Additionally, the Viaro comes with the RideRight, ReclineSure, andSuperCinchfeatures exclusively with the car seat portion of the stroller. The RideRight feature helps to ensure that you see that the base of the car seat is positioned correctly, while ReclineSure and SuperCinch provide the parent that the seat is appropriately angled and that the passenger within the car seat is safely and securely strapped into the device.
The seat also has a harness system in it, ensuring that the child has even more protection when in the backseat of a car; which is always nice to have available when need be.
Now, as I mentioned above, the Viaro is the least popular version available when comparing it to the Chicco Bravo Trio, but that does not mean it is inadequate or worthless in comparison to the Chicco Bravo Trio, no, no, quite the opposite. Many people have raved and gone on and on about the stroller in a positive light.
Additionally, the stroller comes from Chicco, the company knows what they are doing, and they care about the safety of the kids that they produce their wares for no matter what it might be. I know this, and so do a lot of other parents.
So, Which One Should You Go For Then?
Now, this question is almost impossible to answer as every family is going to be different and unique in some shape or form. What works perfectly well for one family or group might be a disaster for another.
As such, I cannot say without a hefty amount of hesitation or trepidation on which one is better as not only are the two equally stupendous in their own right, but every family is going to be different in the sense that not everyone is looking for the same thing. All I can do is name the facts and compare the two, and then let the families decide for themselves what is best for their families as a whole.
Chicco Bravo Trio and Viaro Comparison
Now, honestly, the two travel systems are near identical to one another, yes they have some differences here and there, but the technical details, the hard facts, are very few and far between.
For example, both of them are travel systems, both have the recommended weight limit of 4-30 pounds, both have the positioning systems function, both have a removable and adjustable canopy, and both have five-point harnesses built into them to ensure maximum protection and comfort. Additionally, both of them are still light to carry and push, and can be operated with just one-hand if the need arises.
I would say they are the same, down to the letter, but I would be lying at that point because they do have some differences that make them slightly different from each other, but only if by a small margin that some people would wave off as negligible as best.
Differences Between Each Travel System
For example, the Chicco Bravo Trio have a car seat adapter; the Viaro does not. The Chicco Bravo Trio has wheel-suspension for all four wheels; the Viaro only has suspension for the front wheel. The Chicco Bravo Trio has four wheels; the Viaro only has three. The Chicco Bravo Trio is generally more expensive and pricey than the Viaro.
That is about it when comparing the two strollers side-by-side with one another. I dare say that they are nearly the exact same, down to the design and functionality, and save for the few minor differences that we covered; there is nothing overly special about the Chicco Bravo Trio.
To the point where if I had to choose between the two, I would probably go with the Viaro since the few minor differences afforded to me by the Chicco Bravo Trio is not enough to convince me to spend the additional money and time to procure it over the Viaro.
However, that is just my opinions. As I mentioned above, everyone is different; what works for one family might not work for the other.
There is no inherent disadvantage to getting either travel system as they are both by the same company, and they both have reliable reviews online stating their support of that particular version of the stroller. At the end of the day, whichever version a family might go with, it matters not except to them, and them alone. All I can hope is that this article provides some levity when it comes to deciding which one to go for.
I do hope this review and comparison article was both informative and engaging. Choosing a stroller sounds easy at first, but picking that perfect stroller that you know your baby will be happy in for the first year or two of their life can be somewhat stressful and confusing at times.
However, I hope this article has helped at least one mother or father out there who is trying to consider what stroller to go with. Thank you once more, everyone, and have a beautiful day.
