Wondering if this stroller is worth the price? This Britax Affinity stroller review will give you all the information you need before making such a big purchase.
Picking the perfect baby stroller is not an easy task, but I do believe that this specific one will fill a lot of your wants.
Within this review I want to give you all the reasons on why I have a love hate relationship with this stroller and most especially my final opinion on whether or not this is going to be a worthwhile investment.
We have had this stroller for over a year now so we have tested every aspect of this product and I’m sure this will be the best review of something that requires a lot more thought before buying due to its not so friendly price tag.
There are many questions about such a simple item that I definitely think you should know before making a final decision.
Britax Affinity Stroller Review
Overall Rating: 4.5/5 Stars
This stroller was made by Britax and is a very easy to use, ultra durable, not so affordable stroller that does a lot more than a regular stroller would.
There was a recent Britax stroller recall, but the Affinity wasn’t on the list.
- Weight – 25lbs
- Dimensions – 23.8 x 28 x 42.5 inches
- Minimum recommended weight – 5lbs
- Maximum recommended weight – 55lbs
A little on the heavy side, but there’s a reason for it.
What I Don’t Like About the Britax Affinity Stroller
I really wanted to start with the cons of the Britax Affinity simply because that was all I can think of when we first got this stroller.
I take that back.
When mom first got the stroller.
So I really had no say in buying this and that is exactly what triggered a bunch of complaints from me.
May be complaints because of her impulse buying, but it’s really the truth so I’m sure you can appreciate my honesty in this review.
The Britax Affinity Stroller is Not Light
I read a review on Madeformums.com and they mentioned how light this thing is and I must say the opposite.
This thing may not be the biggest, but it does have some weight to it.
At 25lbs, you are not going to throw this thing around like you would an umbrella stroller so for those of you that don’t go to the gym, this might be something to consider before buying.
Pieces Sold Separately
You would think that for something so pricey it would come with everything you need but that’s not the case here.
You need to purchase a carseat separately and if it doesn’t fit the connection of the stroller you will have to buy an adapter to have them connect.
It does have their “Click n Go” feature, but everything is taken apart and dealt with separately.
No Cup Holder
This was a big deal to me and I don’t care if we can buy it separately but there has to be a way to incorporate something as simple as a cup holder.
I mean, this is a stroller we’re talking about here and I’m sure we will be walking the mall with a nice little beverage in our hands.
We did get a cup holder but even that broke in less than a month.
These are the few complaints I have about this product, but I think I got over it in a couple of months as I did find other things to make me like it.
What I Like About the Britax Affinity Stroller
It may sound like there was nothing that I liked about this stroller, but there’s actually a lot of good that helped me get over the cons.
Look & Design
This is just one amazing looking stroller.
If you want to stand out from the rest, the Britax Affinity will definitely have heads turning when you pass by with your little one.
Most of you will make your decision based on looks alone and I’m going to have to agree that this just looks better than most strollers.
Very Easy to Maneuver
With its inflatable tires and weight, you can feel the smoothness of this stroller.
Rather than using those styrofoam type tires, you will need to inflate these and it makes a huge difference in where you can take baby.
We use this to go to the beach and it can go through sand like nothing.
We use it to soccer games and it takes us through some of the roughest terrain that a normal stroller wouldn’t.
Great for Cargo
The little basket in the bottom seems small but it can actually hold a good amount of stuff.
We use this to carry a lot of things and the tires allow for us to transport a lot of heavy things thanks to them inflatable tires.
With the weight, you can be certain that baby won’t go tipping over.
I can’t say that this is the most comfortable stroller out there but it does do a great job in keeping the kids asleep.
People always say they look so comfortable in it, but I would never really know.
We have our 5 year old sit in this thing at times, and I’m sure other strollers won’t hold that much weight.
This is one sturdy product that will keep you at ease unlike other strollers that feel like they will tip over if you hung a bag on it or something.
This bad boy will hold its ground and you can be sure that baby swill be save with its durable straps and bar that goes across to secure your child.
The “click & go” feature is something that I find to be really helpful for us.
By unlocking it, the weight just carries it to allow for simple setup.
Then you just attach the carseat or whatever carrier you are using and voila! You’re ready to go.
These are some of the things I really liked about this stroller, but there are other little things that I can vouch for as well.
Pros & Cons
- Looks amazing
- Easy to assemble
- Allows for forward and rear facing
- Great cargo space
- Comes in different colors
- Extremely durable
- Linked parking brake
- Suitable for up to 55lbs
- Kind of pricey
- Not the lightest stroller
- Not being made anymore
There are many different price points for this product but I found the cheapest place to buy is on Amazon.com.
You can also get it use for under $300, but do know that to get it brand new and complete it is going to cost you over $500. Yikes!
This product is not being made anymore but you can still find it on sites like Amazon.com.

At a Glance
Price: $264 from Amazon.com
Overall Rating: Definitely a great stroller. With the right budget, I think this will be a great investment.
Do keep in mind that this is not your typical stroller and will definitely have you stand out in the crowd.
Final Verdict: Good to Go!
I never thought I’d be saying this, but I recommend this to anyone looking to buy and not have to buy another stroller.
We have used this for our last two kids and it has served us well without much wear and tear.
It looks just as good as when we first got it and with the ability to change colors it will be perfect for any baby’s gender.
If you are in the hunt for a new baby stroller this is definitely one to consider.
Thanks for reading my Britax Affinity stroller review and hopefully I have given you more than enough information on whether or not this is a great fit for you and your family.

Wow this looks like a great stroller!! It seems very similar to the Baby Jogger City Premier. They are both full size standard strollers with similar features. Although Baby Jogger has better customer service then Britax does.
Have you ever tried the City Premier? How would you compare the two?
Never tried City Premier but I do hear good things about it.
Well, I must say that was a very comprehensive review for what certainly looks like an awesome stroller. I don’t think I have ever seen a stroller with inflatable tires but that would make a difference. Thank you for your hard hitting review.
Not a problem Brent!
This looks really amazing. I actually got one (a cheaper one) for my daughter especially when we go to the mall for some shopping but she doesn’t like it:( She keeps screaming at the top of her lungs and I have to carry her all the time and then she keeps quiet! Seriously kids I tell you!
They are exactly that…sweet and sour!
Something for the cons section of your review “You need to purchase a carseat separately and if it doesn’t fit the connection of the stroller you will have to buy an adapter to have them connect.”
Having been a car seat inspector this is a very important fact that needs to be shown. Otherwise the review is spot on.
Such an great stroller and this is actually quite cheap compared to what I paid for my City Select which was around $800.
I wish this was around before when I was in the market as I would’ve gotten this. Now I am looking for a gift for my cousin and it’s like I’m getting something that I want for myself!
I think I’ll pick this up for her because it’s got everything she was looking for and I’ll just admire it from afar. Thanks for your detailed review. 🙂
This stroller really looks like it could be the one for the kids! Parents should invest into this because even though this is kind of a bit expensive, this can give comfort to the kids as well as to the parents! You can now go for a walk or have a grocery session with your kid exactly in the same place where you leave it.
The review is all I need to make a final decision, so thanks for this John!
What a great article and I really enjoyed it!
To be honest, it’s been a long time now that I haven’t used a stroller because my kids have grown up, but my sister just gave birth not too long ago and I am sure she will love this as a present:) This stroller looks awesome and seems to be of excellent quality, especially with those inflatable tires. I suppose you can go wherever you want with these tires:)
Great, I think I have found something to buy even if they no longer make these. It’s like getting a rare model of a car, right?
Thank you for this useful review!
Yes it is Daniella and I would recommend this stroller to anyone looking for a solid reliable stroller.
Britax has actually replaced this with the B-Ready stroller, which you can learn more about here. It’s just as good, with a few minor changes.
First of all, great review on the Britax Affinity Stroller! It was very informative, easy to read, and you covered all the aspects of this product. Nice job!
It’s really amazing to see that this website is created by a man! You’re the best, keep up the good work!
LOL! Thanks Daumantas!
This looks like a great stroller, I have to say when we were looking a few years ago, there were so many products out there I just didn’t know what to choose.
We ended up with a heavy cumbersome travel system, everything was included but it was a bit of a nightmare to get it in and out of the boot of the car – Graco was the make. It was super comfy for my daughter though she loved it. We also got a more lightweight one more budget end but it did the job.
This Britax one seems like a great price for what you get.
Yeah I’m not a fan of heavy strollers, but sometimes it plays a big part on the overall function of what you do. Hanging bags and being able to plow through anything is what makes heavier strollers better, but I’m all about function and heavy strollers are not on my good list.
What a great Britax Affinity Stroller Review. It is very thourgh and nice to read as you make it personal by adding your comments of how you found it rather than sounding like a company review if you know what I mean.
The review is well set out and easy to read with great pictures and I am sure that people will find it very helpful when deciding whether to buy it or not.
