Britax B-Lively made to 10BabyGear’s list of best travel system strollers in 2022. I came second behind UPPABaby Vista Travel System but did better when compared to most other Britax strollers such as B-Free, B-Agile, Pathway, among others.

Below is a picture of Britax B-Lively, a travel stroller system developed and retailed by Britax. This Britax lightweight stroller was released to the market just over a year ago, on May 4, 2018, and parents have had great things to say about it.

As of the update of this article on January 5, 2021, Britax B-Livey is in the top 100 best-selling baby strollers on Amazon.

It is currently ranked number 23 among the top 100 as shown in the snapshot below.

Over the past year that this stroller has been available on Amazon, all of the users have given it an average rating of 4.6/5.

I like mentioning these numbers and statistics as it gives me a good basis to start the comparison of Britax B-Lively with other stroller travel systems. Before the comparisons, let’s review some of the features that make this stroller stand out:

  • It has a lightweight design making it easy to be the perfect companion of your everyday walk
  • It folds very easily using its One-hand quick fold making it great for travel and easy storage or packing
  • You can use the Britax’s Click & Go System which allows you to use your Britax infant car seat
  • It has super large storage which you can access easily from the front
  • Has a nice back canopy

Let’s start with its comparison with B-Agile.

Britax B-lively Vs B-Agile

Both Britax B-Lively and B-Agile are categorized as lightweight strollers as they do not exceed 20 pounds. Despite being lightweight, they can both support your infant’s weight from birth to 55 pounds. Britax B-Lively was released as an upgrade to B-Agile which has been in the market for a much longer period.

The biggest difference between B-Lively and B-Agile lies in their product weight, design, and ease of use. B-Lively is more durable with its sturdy design and is easier to use and fold with its one-hand quick-fold compared to B-Agile. On the other hand, B-Agile is lighter than B-lively by about 2 pounds and you can use it to maneuver through crowded places with ease.

The table below has more details on Britax B-Lively vs Britax B-Agile.

Britax B-lively vs B-Free

Similar to B-Lively, Britax B-Free is also categorized as a lightweight stroller although it weighs 22 pounds, 2 pounds more than B-Lively. It can, however, support your baby from infant weight of 4 pounds to when they attain 65 lbs which is better than B-Lively’s 55 pounds limit. B-Free is however relatively more expensive but as the difference in the table below shows, the difference is totally worth it for the add-on features the B-Free model has compared to Britax B-Lively.

B-Free has all-terrain rubber tires which are better than B-Lively’s solid tires and has rubber wheels which are also better than B-Lively’s EVA foam wheels.
