The difference between the newer model and older model by someone who has actually tested both, nothing to do with steering !,
This review is from: Baby Jogger 2016 City Mini 3W Single Stroller (Baby Product)The truth about the actual difference between the older model city mini stroller and this one, unbiased and not as a preferred Vine customer !! I was so confused when ordering the City Mini on amazon, I could see the 2016 version was $60 more expensive than the older which I was happy to pay if there was any significant improvements but having called baby jogger and spoken to a sales rep everyone was unclear about any significant improvements and then I saw the Vine customer review for this product stating there was a real improvement in the newer one with one-hand use steering and overall use, which to be honest was still a bit vague for my liking - what is one-hand steering? But it was enough to make me want to order both strollers and test them out. FIRST THING TO BE AWARE OF: this may state 2016 model but it was manufactured in 2015, the older model that you can see as a cheaper price on Amazon ( around $200) is manufactured in 2014 so they are a year apart.

City Mini vs Graco Aire3 Click Connect,
This review is from: Baby Jogger 2016 City Mini 3W Single Stroller (Baby Product)My sister and I were both in the market for a new stroller. After lots of research, we both narrowed it down to two finalists- this stroller (2016 baby jogger city mini single) and the Graco Aire3 Click Connect. She ended up purchasing the Graco, and I purchased the City Mini.
Since we couldn't find any great comparisons of the two strollers online, I decided to write one.
We each brought our strollers to Disneyland for a week and pushed around a 3 and 5 year old.
Both of the strollers fold the same way (so easy- one of the best features), push like a dream and maneuver very well, have big sunshades and the seats lay *almost* flat. We tested them side by side and they do lay back the exact same amount.
-rubber handlebar (feels better IMO)
- taller handlebar (perfect for me, I'm 5'11")
- no mesh in the sunshade which makes for less airflow, but more sun protection (I thought the airflow would be a big deal, but... Read more

Perfect for a short grandmother,
This review is from: Baby Jogger 2016 City Mini 3W Single Stroller (Baby Product)I love this stroller. I'm only 5ft 2in & I read that the handle is too high for a short person, but I don't know how short that reviewer is. The handle is U shape & the highest part of the handle is very comfortable for me [I have long legs for a short woman, but I don't think that would make a difference]. The best thing is a strap in the seat that when you pull on it, the stroller easily fold so even I can put it in my trunk almost one handed. It also steers with one hand. The sunshade is very big with peekaboo windows that the fabric rolls up & Velcro out of the way. Only a couple negatives, one being the 2 part shoulder strap that are extra long. I know it's like that so you can get the child out easily & adjustable, but with a wiggling almost 8 month old [no I didn't invest in the anchor for the infant seat because my grandson fits fine since he was 10 lbs at birth] plus one who loves to chew on the extra long straps, I find those annoying. My daughter has a Chicco... Read more
