Being a parent means juggling a hectic schedule, but a good stroller can help lighten your load. Nimble, adaptable, and built for comfort, the Leona Ultra Compact Stroller from Maxi-Cosi has everything your family needs to stay ready for anything.

City friends, this baby has your name on it!

As the name suggests, this stroller can be compressed down impressively small and is so lightweight, you can do all the maneuvering, folding, and carrying with a single hand (keeping the other one free to take care of baby). Perfect for parents on the move and braving large crowds or inconsistent terrain, this efficient stroller has your little one’s comfort top of mind as they grow from newborn through toddlerhood.

Let’s learn more about what makes this compact stroller an undeniably essential purchase.

Design & Build


  • Recommended Use: Newborn (with infant car seat) to 48.5 lbs.
  • Dimensions when unfolded: 30.3”L x 17.7” H x 40.5”W
  • Dimensions when folded: 9.8”L x 17.7”H x 21.7”W 
  • Stroller weight: 20.01 lbs 

Manoeuvring a huge clunky stroller through small spaces can be a nightmare, thankfully, the Leona Ultra Compact Stroller ensures your child has lots of room to grow while offering a sleek, simple, and narrow design to get you around with ease.

The Fold:

The small size of the stroller becomes particularly useful when activating the single-handed fold. All you have to do is press down on the handlebar — no bending of the knees or back involved! The stroller compresses down significantly and can be stored in small spaces trouble-free, including a trunk of a car.


When folded, the Leona should also fit into the overhead bins of many airlines, however, each airline has a different set of requirements, so be sure to check with them before getting to the airport. For travelling abroad, the stroller comes with its own travel bag. The Leona also has its own travel bag pouch built into the back of the stroller seat, so you can wrap it up for safekeeping, avoiding damage, stains, or spills when not in use. At just 20.01 lbs, you can also lift the stroller with a single hand or use the attached carry strap to sling it over your shoulder when needed.

Tackles Tough Terrain:

Part of being out in the hustle and bustle of the world means you’re bound to encounter some rough and unpredictable terrain. Luckily, this stroller comes fully prepared for any surface with shock-absorbent, indestructible puncture-proof wheels and a suspension-designed frame to give your baby a smooth and enjoyable ride every time and any place.

Growing with Your Child

The Leona Stroller is designed to grow with your baby in two ways. Firstly, it is compatible with infant car seats and secondly, it boasts a wide range of adjustable features.

Travel System Ready:

During the first few months of life, until baby is old enough to use the stroller seat, you can use the Leona with an infant car seat to create an instant travel system. This option makes the stroller suitable for newborns! When used with the included car seat adapters and Maxi-Cosi Mico Infant Car Seats or Maxi-Cosi Coral Infant Car Seat, the Leona Ultra Compact Stroller can be transformed into a travel system that will help you get your little one around undisrupted and stress-free.

Adjustable Features:

When your child is old enough to sit up on their own (usually around 6 months of age) they can transition to the stroller seat.

The stroller seat is reversible, so if you want to keep an eye on your baby, you can have their seat face you. If your child prefers to take in the world around them, you can switch the seat to world-facing mode. The stroller can be folded no matter what direction the seat is facing, so no need to worry about switching it back in place before compacting it. The stroller also has an extendable canopy to protect them from the elements, which features a peekaboo window to let you keep an eye on them in world-facing mode.

Keeping babe comfortable means adventures last longer (without meltdowns). Thankfully, the Leona has several features to keep your little one in the lap of luxury. The seat can be reclined to your child’s preference, it has a backrest that can be adapted as they grow taller, and the footrest can be adjusted as well for maximum comfort. All of these adjustments require minimum effort from you and can be done with just one hand, so there’s no delay in your schedule as you stop to make a quick tweak for your child to feel cozy.


Being on the go also means needing to pack the essentials for an adventure-packed day. The Leona Ultra Compact Stroller may be small and lightweight, but it still has you covered when it comes to storage! The back of the stroller seat has a pocket for you to store your belongings (perfect for keeping your cell phone in an easy-to-reach place). The stroller also has a basket below the seat to store anything you may need, from diaper bags to groceries. Whatever you need throughout the day, store it within arm’s reach with this stroller.

Final Verdict

Whether you’re living in a bustling city or trying to get through a day full of errands in your small town, the Leona Ultra Compact Stroller by Maxi-Cosi is the support you and your family need to make your busy days easier.

With an effortless single-hand system to fold, open, and adjust the stroller to your child’s needs, this stroller is a dream for a demanding day of parenting. Lightweight and extremely compact, this stroller is also able to travel with you just about anywhere and can be stored with ease wherever you may need it. With a sturdy design that ensures a smooth gliding ride for your little one and the ability to turn into a full-functioning travel system, the Leona Ultra Compact Stroller is the ride that will never disappoint.
