Chicco: Cortina Together Double Stroller Review {Giveaway}

Cortina Together

We recently had the opportunity to test drive the Chicco Cortina Together Double Stroller. I have always been apprehensive of double strollers because of how big and difficult to maneuver they are but I really enjoyed testing this tandem double stroller, I love that it takes less space than side-by-side double strollers and fits through doorways easily.

The Cortina Together is a double stroller for busy families on the go.  This stroller is ideal for families with twins because it accommodates two KeyFit® car seats at the same time and it is also perfect for families that are having a new baby and have older siblings that are still young.

Our Video: The Cortina Together in Action


The Cortina Together Double Stroller needs to be assembled. No tools are required and the owner’s manual has easy to follow instructions. It took my husband about 10 minutes to assemble the stroller after opening the box, no complaints as everything was clearly illustrated.

We received the romantic (black and silver) colour to review and I love the way it looks, it’s easy to keep clean too!

Folding/Unfolding and Durability

The Cortina Together is by no means a small or light stroller as it is big in size, even when folded, but it is definitively smaller than other side-by-side strollers. If you worry about trunk space then plan ahead and move some things around, having one double stroller is definitively better than having to pack two separate strollers. We have a Toyota RAV4 and we experienced no problems fitting the stroller in the back of the car.

I found this stroller was easy to fold and unfold and I had no issues doing it on my own at seven months pregnant. In general this stroller looks and feels solid and the aluminum frame construction is durable and built to last.

Cortina Together


The rear seat of the stroller can be reclined and used as a bassinet enclosure for younger babies. Once the rear backrest is in a full recline position you must reach under the rear seat bottom and pull the leg flap forward to ensure safe occupant retention installation.

The front seat also reclines by squeezing the recline handle on the back of the seat and pulling down on front backrest.

Both seats are padded and they have a canopy that can shield little ones from the sun. I wish the canopies were a bit larger to shield them from the rain as well but I like that both seats have them. The front seat also has the option to install two handy cup holders (included) instead of  a front bar.

Both seats feature 5 point safety harness to keep little ones safe while riding.

Cortina Together

This is an important category because the Cortina Together has amazing storage space. It has a large basket in the bottom that can be easily accessed from the back and from the sides between the seats. If the rear seat is fully reclined you can also access the basket from the lower zipper in the back.  The ample storage space is definitively great for carrying your diaper bag, shopping bags, toys and more.


I really like how smooth and easy to push the Cortina Together is, this stroller is easy to maneuver and the stering is also great. As mentioned before I also like that you can go through doorways and store aisles without any issues.

The stroller also has an adjustable handle bar that can go higher or lower depending on who is pushing it.

Cortina Together

Final Thoughts

Overall I really like the Chicco Cortina Together Stroller.  It is an ideal double stroller because it is easy to maneuver and it allows both children to recline their seat and adjust it if one or both want to take a nap or stay alert. It has fantastic storage space and it folds and unfolds easily, it is also durable and made to last. I definitively recommend this stroller if you are looking for a stroller for twins or a double stroller for your growing family!
