The new 2012 Baby Jogger City Mini is now available on Amazon. In comparison, the prices between the old 2011 model and the 2012 are almost identical. Therefore I wanted to give you an update and explain what improvements are included on the new Baby Jogger City Mini 2012.
Baby Jogger City Mini 2012 Improvements
First of all, the new Baby Jogger City Mini 2012 now offers a firm board under the seat. Not only does this fix the issue of a sagging seat, but it also give you about a 1/2 an inch more seat depth. The previous Baby Jogger City Mini 2011 did not offer this, and although it was comfortable, over time many people noticed that seat would sag.
The new Baby Jogger City Mini 2012 also offers improved basket accessibility. The bar beneath the seat in the back is now curved more, giving you more space to store your items. The Baby Jogger City Mini 2011 also offered a curved bar, but it does not offer near as much space as the 2012 model. So, instead of having to load your diapers and wipes separately, you can now fit the whole diaper bag in there.
The new Baby Jogger City Mini 2012 also now features an automatic folding lock. The previous 2011 version also had a lock, but it was manual. The Baby Jogger 2012 locks automatically once folded.
The only other difference is price. The Baby Jogger City Mini 2012 lists for about $10 dollars more. If you ask me, all of those improvements are definitely worth the extra $10 bucks.
Aside from that, these two Baby Jogger City Mini Strollers are almost identical. They offer all of the same features, the same fabric, the same sized canopy, and the same sized storage baskets. It’s hard to improve on something that’s already so great. I did notice that there were a few different color scheme’s now available for the Baby Jogger City Mini 2012. The orange is no longer offered, but they do offer a pretty blue/grey combination that I like.
