Picking between them isn’t easy though: Despite both being a product of Chicco’s world-class design lab, they’re very different systems, designed to cater for two different types of parent.
Accordingly, each option has a slightly different feature-set, and a variety of different ‘pros’ that affect everything from weight to maneuverability, ease-of-use and ease-of-maintenance.
There’s definitely no clear-cut ‘winner’ in our eyes, but there’s also no doubt that one of these award-winning travel systems will be a better fit for your little one. To help you decide between the two, we’ve broken down the pros and cons of each, and then provided a detailed comparison, as follows:

Chicco Bravo Trio Vs. Cortina CX(Detail Comparison)
To provide a truly accurate comparison, we’ve drawn up a table that lists features of both products:
Starting with the similarities, it’s important to note that both the Bravo Trio and the Cortina CX feature Chicco’s KeyFit 30 car seat, which is currently the #1 rated car seat in America.
They both have very similar safety systems too; including identical, single-tap wheel brakes, 5 point harnesses and multi-position handles, which are designed to preserve your good posture while you’re strolling.
As such, you can rely on both options to provide an equally robust system, which will last for many years to come.
They’re also both very versatile systems too; allowing you to move seamlessly from car to pavement with a minimum of fuss. This is one of the few places where the Bravo Trio does start to come out ahead though: As a more lightweight system, it’s much easier to take in and out of the trunk, and it’s also much quicker to assemble which can be a huge boon if you’re on your own, and need to get somewhere in a hurry.
The Bravo Trio is a bit more rugged too, which makes it better for countryside strolls or those of us that like to lead a more active lifestyle. The lightweight design does come at the expense of some conveniences though, and while it’s true that the Trio is probably the number one choice for busy parents, the Cortina CX’s focus on luxury features shouldn’t be overlooked!
When it comes to choosing between the Bravo Trio and the Cortina CX, there is no wrong answer. Chicco has designed both travel systems to cater for different lifestyle choices, and while there might be some features that definitely don’t appeal, choosing the right travel system really does just boil down to working out which of the two options better caters for your lifestyle.
- If you’re on the go a lot, and frequently find yourself packing your little one into the car for a day trip, something lightweight and easy to use like the Bravo Trio may well be the best fit for you.
- If, on the other hand, you value the extra convenience provided by features like the feeding tray and the extra options for reclining, the Cortina CX is a perfect choice.
Spending some time looking through the comparison table above should help to make the decision clearer, and it’s also worth pointing out that both options are fantastic in their own, unique ways.
