Maxi-Cosi Zelia 5-in-1 Modular Travel System Review


The Zelia 5-in-1 Modular Travel System is an ideal option for families. This travel system includes the Mico 30 infant car seat with a stay-in-car base and a reversible stroller seat.

This stroller is specially crafted to take your little one from birth through 3.5 years. It is lightweight and portable, and its folding mechanism makes storage simple.

Easy to Assemble

This travel system is an ideal option for parents searching for a lightweight pushchair that will grow with their child, is easy to fold, and will fit easily in most trunks and boots. But please be mindful of its two-handed operation since anything placed inside its storage basket cannot be folded away when folding up for transport purposes.

The Zelia travel system is affordable with a lightweight frame, making it suitable for use from birth without additional components or features. Convertible into a newborn bassinet makes this an excellent option for young families; older babies may even prefer sitting upright inside a pram or stroller!

Like most travel systems, this one isn’t inexpensive but has numerous features many parents will find helpful. Although a few non-essential accessories that would simplify its use (e.g., an adjustable handle and one-handed fold) would simplify life for most parents, most are pleased with this system.

The Maxi-Cosi Zelia travel system is an affordable and stylish travel system featuring five modes of use with its Mico Max 30 infant car seat and stay-in-car base: pram, stroller, or booster seat configurations and various stylish colors are available; plus parent or world-facing strollers recline fully flat to fully flat position!

This travel system is easy to assemble and includes everything needed: chassis, seat, and footmuff in a single box. The chassis feels sturdy, while its large wheels make for smooth terrain travel; the suspension was impressive on our road test, with everyday bumps and curbs easily handled by its suspension system. Furthermore, its spacious storage basket makes for convenient shopping trips, simultaneously accommodating three or four bags plus a changing bag! Unfortunately, its broad base makes passing by parked cars on pavement more challenging.

Easy to Fold

The Maxi-Cosi Zelia Travel System is easy to fold up, making it ideal for families with limited storage space. Plus, its maneuverability is unparalleled, and it has a beautiful appearance. It features an ample storage basket that can fit a large diaper bag, an adjustable number bar, a height-adjustable handlebar, and deep reclines explicitly designed for napping on the go; extendable canopies provide plenty of sun protection. This travel system has it all!

Another advantage of this travel system is that it’s compatible with various Maxi-Cosi infant car seats using adapters, thus enabling you to continue using it throughout your child’s childhood. However, its sole drawback is not having a snack tray, rain cover, or car seat case included – which may pose problems if traveling frequently with a baby.

The Zelia is easy to maneuver and boasts ample suspension, making it adept at handling bumpy pavement and unevenness. Additionally, its narrow frame makes it convenient when working in and out of stores; however, its comprehensive structure may make fitting through doorways or passing parked cars on footpaths more challenging.

The Zelia comes equipped with a large storage basket capable of holding three to four shopping bags and one changing bag; It is easy to clean with an adjustable handlebar that adjusts for different heights. However, its price point may be somewhat costly for parents on tight budgets.

Overall, the Zelia is an exceptionally reliable and comfortable stroller suitable for use from birth through toddlerhood. Equipped with an infant insert and thick padding to support newborns weighing less than expected at their age, its maximum weight limit of 50 pounds means it should serve your little one well until their growth outgrows it. While its car seat’s 30-pound limit might seem restrictive in comparison, it should allow rear-facing riding up until at least two years old.

Comfort for Your Little One

The Zelia 5-in-1 Modular Travel System features an elegant pushchair and infant car seat for ultimate comfort and convenience. Connected via adaptors, its lightweight frame makes maneuvering across various terrains easy, while its foot-tap brake on the rear right wheel and automatic lock on the front swivel wheels provide additional safety measures against accidents. In addition, its large storage basket makes keeping everything organized easy!

Maxi-Cosi Zelia strollers and car seats offer convenient 2-in-1 solutions at an incredibly reasonable cost to new parents. Coming in four stylish colors with matching bags, its lightweight frame makes folding and storage simple while fitting easily in most trunks; additionally, attaching car seats easily via click-in attachment is even simpler!

Parents love how easily the Zelia can switch between modes; just a few seconds are needed to convert from bassinet mode into seat mode, offering comfort with its Cozi-Dozi head insert pillows and thick padding to support preemie babies. Furthermore, its weight limit of 50 pounds should see them through most of toddlerhood.

Parents love Zelia’s ability to recline in multiple positions, offering their children optimal comfort. Furthermore, you can position the seat to face you or be parent-facing, giving your little one optimal seating.

As part of our review, we conducted extensive tests with this stroller on various terrains and found it to perform admirably on smooth pavement and bumpy back roads, although steep inclines or rough terrain may pose more difficulty than anticipated. Unfortunately, it doesn’t include a child tray, making it harder to access snacks or toys without removing your child from his/her seat first.

Maxi-Cosi Zelia Travel System is an excellent option for families that want to focus on enjoying time together without the burden of transporting their baby from one mode to the next. Its versatility and affordability make this an appealing solution. Many parents opt for this travel system for their growing families.

Easy to Transport

If you need a straightforward travel system that’s lightweight and compact, the Maxi-Cosi Zelia could be just the thing. It is light and portable, and its folding feature means it can be put away quickly, too. Plus, it’s budget-friendly!

This travel system comes in one easy-to-transport box that contains chassis, wheels, seat, footmuff, and accessories for effortless transporting – perfect if traveling via bus to and from baby classes or mall trips. Plus, it fits nicely in most airplane overhead compartments!

Assembling the Zelia is simple and only requires basic tools. Once complete, attaching your car seat is as straightforward as snapping and clipping; both products are designed to help ensure that every adventure starts well for your child!

The Mico Luxe infant car seat was designed for safety and comfort with Side Impact Protection, removable plush infant insert pillows, machine-washable PureCosi fabrics that can easily be cleaned, and easy transition into any five stroller modes. Parents love how effortless it is for them to transition their Zelia between stroller modes!

As a stroller, the Zelia features exceptional maneuverability and can traverse even rough terrain without issue. Additionally, its front wheels can be locked into place or swiveled for more excellent stability when going up and down hills – some parents wish the stroller offered more storage for snacks and drinks!

Overall, the Maxi Cosi Zelia Travel System is a fantastic travel system and an excellent choice for families with newborns through toddlers. It’s affordable, versatile, and easy to assemble and adjust, with no significant drawbacks beyond missing features like a snack tray and car seat cover – making this top-rated travel system worth its money.
