The Chicco Cortina Keyfit 30 Travel System is one of the most popular travel systems and you will understand why it is so after reading this review.
The Chicco Cortina Travel System Summary
This travel system is a combination of the Chicco Cortina stroller and the well known Chicco Keyfit 30 car seat. The Chicco Keyfit 30 is a popular car seat for its light and sleek design. A great thing about this system is, the car seat is an upgraded version, which can fit a child up to 30 pounds rather than only 22 pounds. The car seat can be attached to the stroller rear facing, which allows you to see your baby while pushing the stroller, which I really like with my daughter. There is a unique feature on the stroller called memory recline, the seat remembers the position you last left it in before folding and returns to that position when you re-open the stroller. This is significant when you want to quickly set up your stroller to the same position that had it earlier if you had to fold it to get into a car or onto a train. See current price.
The car seat’s base is designed such a way that it can be easily transferred car to stroller. The Chicco Keyfit car seat comes with an improved Latch system, which has practical belt routing system.
The Chicco Cortina stroller has many great features and one of them is its durability. It has a strong aluminum frame which is rock solid but at the same time very lightweight.
The stroller has multiple positions for your baby. You can set it from full recline to a sitting upright position. There is also an additional padded insert for the stroller to accommodate your infant. See current price.
Safety of the Chicco Travel System
Many authorities give the Cicco Cortina Travel System high grades for safety after several tests.
There is a 5-point harness for the safety of your child which secures the child’s upper body and lap. The harness system on the stroller is easy to use which features one-pull tightening and loosening.
Also, the Chicco Keyfit got very high grades as a car seat from experts and consumer agencies.
The Chicco Stroller rides smoothly both and turns easily with very little effort on any terrain thanks to the all wheel suspension system.
The canopy is another great feature of the Chicco Cortina stroller. It is the adjustable, removable, and, water repellent.
Basket and Storage
The stroller has an extra large basket which is very usable for taking your needs for you baby with you, there is enough room for a diaper bag, some groceries from the mall. It also has a convenient parent tray for putting small items cell phone and water bottle.
What about the Handles?
The rubber covered handles are height adjustable which makes strolling comfortable for people no matter how tall they are.
Folding the Chicco Cortina, Is it compact?
The Chicco Cortina Keyfit 30 Travel System is super easy to fold/unfold with just one hand. When folded the stroller can stand on its own which is really helpful when you have your baby in one hand. But a bad thing about the stroller is it takes up a lot of space while folded. See current price.
The front wheels feature straight locks to provide straight strolling and one feature worth to talk about wheels is the linked rear brakes; you can stop the stroller with just one simple step on either side of the brakes.
Pros and Cons
- Very good maneuverability.
- Very comfortable for baby, in the car seat and in the stroller.
- Very Safe
- One hand folds with and stands on its own while folded.

Overall, the Chicco Cortina KeyFit 30 Travel System is worth the money because unlike many other travel systems it is practical and flexible to be used continuously without a need of a second stroller. See current Amazon price.
