Chicco Cortina Together Double Stroller Review
The Chicco Cortina Together Double Stroller, Fuego is an attractively designed and well-finished two-passenger stroller, which accepts KeyFit 30 infant car seats.
The click-in KeyFit® attachment means you can easily move a car seat into both the front and rear seats of the stroller, with the advantage of being able to move the child without disturbing him or her.
The car seats click in without the need for extra accessories. While you might expect that a tandem stroller will weigh more than a single stroller, the anodized aluminum frame and innovative tubing profile of the Chicco Cortina add strength whilst keeping the weight of the stroller low.
Chicco Cortina Together Double Stroller
It is 15% lighter than comparable tandem strollers. The seats each accommodate a child weighing up to 40 pounds, and can be adjusted to face forward or to the rear. The arm rests and canopies are removable and adjustable giving added comfort and ease of operation.
When managing two children, being able to move them from car to stroller or change their position to any of the four positions while they sleep is a real bonus. The lighter weight makes for easier folding and stowage.
The zippered basket keeps items secure and it can be accessed even when the seat is fully reclined. The simple one-handed folding mechanism and automatic latch, together with the stand-alone feature make stowing a breeze and the capacity to adjust the height of handle bar is of great benefit to the operator. The stroller can be managed in confined spaces because of the swivel wheel feature.

They make favorable comments about the easy folding mechanism and like the fact that no additional straps or other equipment are needed. The adjustable canopies and the reclining features afford a high level of comfort for the child passengers though some say the canopies are not very effective.

Many reviewers have noted that the large tires and swivel wheels make it easy to push and steer and give a smooth ride, and that the size is good, considering that it carries two children, and that it fits neatly into even a small car. Read more reviews here.
