    Also...
    Elite can have a bassinet attached.
    Both very easy to fold & lift but mini is about 7kg and elite 12kg I think.

    I have the Elite and love it. Mum brought the Mini for when her grandkiddies visit.

    Mini is awesome!! We love it. Dd2 was in sling for first 6 months then got pram and live it. Easy at shops, easy to lift!!! You can also get attachment for 2nd seat on it. There is a thread on here about it. I didn't know until I saw thread but an going to look in to it now I am pregnant with baby 3. Good luck! I also bought mine from USA and it was cheaper than here including postage. We love it!!

    The current mini doesn't have adjustable handle and small basket, they are releasing mini GT in April which fixes both of those and has slightly different seat, but price is going up.

    I just finished my pram research!

    I just went into baby bunting yesterday and had a look at the bassinet attachment for the mini. It is so easy to attach! It also means bubs can face you which I love, but does make it more cumbersome to fold. I love how easy the mini is to fold!! I think the GT may have different wheels too when released?

    I think the 2nd seat for the city elite has been withdrawn/recalled. At least in Australia

    The city mini is great for quick trips, travel, supermarkets, walks around the neighbourhood. The city elite has bigger wheels and is a little bit more stable on rough ground due to the size of the tires. It is bigger and heavier and generally suited to lots of walking.

    Good luck

    Teh new citymini GT will be great, will be a bit heavier though but will fix a few issues.

    I sold my elite for a mini.

    They both have 3 wheels. The elite is bigger (note: heavier). The basket is bigger, the flaps are magnetic as opposed to Velcro, the handle is adjustable, it has pockets at the top to put keys in etc and you can attach more specialty items to it.

    It's a great pram, but it's too big and heavy for my liking. The mini is great and would be even better if they made a few tweaks (I.e.: magnetic flaps like the elite).

    sorry to contradict, but the Elite is still just 3 wheels and the extra seat (toddler jump seat) was recalled last year and will not be being replaced from what I have been able to read from the Baby Jogger facebook page.

    I have the elite single and am most likely getting the mini gt double when it is released in Aus in April for when I have this 2nd bub.

    I am pretty sure that the Baby Jogger website has a comparison
