Peg Perego vs Chicco – Affordability
In terms of affordability, the Chicco Bravo LE stroller is a bit more affordable than the Peg Perego Booklet. Although the Peg Perego Booklet doesn’t really have more features than the Bravo LE.
However, both strollers are still quite affordable compared to most full-sized strollers currently available on the market. You’re can check the latest price at Amazon:
Peg Perego vs Chicco – Features
Car Seat Compatible: Both the Chicco Bravo and Viaro strollers are car seat compatible. They both include a simple click-in feature that allows you to simply click-in your infant car seat to your stroller frame without needing any additional accessories.
The Peg Perego Booklet is compatible with the Peg Perego Primo Viaggio infant car seat. While the Chicco Bravo LE is compatible with any of the Chicco KeyFit infant car seats. The Bravo LE also allows you to remove the stroller seat and replace it with the infant car seat. Making the stroller lighter with the car seat attached. The Booklet stroller on the other hand only allows you to place the car seat over the stroller seat. Making it a bit more bulky and heavier once the car seat is attached.
Note: the car seats are not included in the stroller prices. You’d have to purchase them separately.
Newborn Stroller: Although the seats for both strollers cannot directly be used for newborns, you can still safely carry your newborn aboard the stroller using the car seat option! By replacing the stroller seat of the Bravo LE and Peg Perego with an infant car seat, your newborn can comfortably ride aboard either stroller. And once your baby is old enough, you can simply switch back to the stroller seat.
Multi-Position Recline: both strollers have a multi-position recline feature that lets you easily adjust the stroller seats into multiple-positions. Your baby can switch from sitting upright, to laying horizontally in a flat recline – it is especially great and convenient for taking naps.
5-Point Harness: in terms of safety, both strollers have a 5-point harness system that keeps your baby safely strapped into the stroller seat. As babies tend to move around a lot when you’re not paying full attention, the harness helps to keep them safely strapped into the stroller seat.
Quick Fold: Both strollers also have a one-hand fold that allows you to fold up the stroller quickly and easily. The Chicco Bravo stroller has the true one-hand fold that lets you fold up the stroller without having to free up both hands. This is always more convenient especially when you’re in a hurry or on-the-go. You don’t have to find room to set your baby down to free up both hands!
Both strollers also fold up into a self-standing position. Making them easier to store in a corner in your home or in the car.
Child and Parent Tray with Cup Holders: as a bonus, the Chicco Bravo LE stroller has a child tray and a parent tray with cup holders. The child tray is at the front of the stroller, while the parent tray is at the rear. This feature is especially great for your kid as they get room to hold their snacks, toys and drinks while on a ride! As a parent, you also get room for your drinks, keys, or phones at the rear of the stroller.
The Peg Perego Booklet unfortunately does not have a parent or child tray.
Adjustable Handlebar: both strollers have a height adjustable handlebar that allows you to adjust the handlebar to the height of the parent handling the stroller. This feature is great for small and tall parents as it allows you to adjust the handlebar to fit the height of both tall and small parents.
Peg Perego vs Chicco – Wheels
Both strollers move quite nicely and both have an all-wheel shock absorbing suspension system that helps to provide a smooth and bump free ride.
They also both have a lockable swiveling front wheel that makes the stroller easy to maneuver and allows you round corners smoothly.
Although the wheels for both strollers are not all-terrain and don’t do too well on very bumpy terrain, they move quite nicely on smooth surfaces and paved sidewalks.
Peg Perego vs Chicco – Weight & Capacity
As full-size strollers, I’d say both the Peg Perego Booklet and the Chicco Bravo fall on the lighter end in terms of how much they weigh. Some full-size strollers weigh as much as 28 lbs, making the Bravo and Viaro quite lightweight in comparison:
Chicco Bravo LE Stroller Weight: 23 lbs
Peg Perego Booklet 50 Stroller Weight: 20.68 lbs
While both strollers are lightweight compared to most, the Peg Perego Booklet is even lighter at 20.68 lbs. This is quite lightweight compared to most full-sized strollers.
In terms of carrying capacity, both strollers are able to carry up to 50 lbs of child weight. You can carry older kids even up to 6 years old!
Peg Perego vs Chicco – Dimensions
In terms of dimensions, both the Chicco Bravo and Peg Perego Booklet are quite compact; however, the Booklet is a bit more compact at around 19 inches wide.
- Peg Perego Booklet – 40.25″ L x 19.25″ W x 40.75″ H

Peg Perego vs Chicco – Basket
The Chicco Bravo and Peg Perego Booklet strollers have large rear-accessible baskets that give you enough room to carry your on-the-go items – diapers, bottles, toys, or snacks. You won’t always need to carry that extra bag with you when on the go.
Peg Perego vs Chicco – Canopy
If you’re looking to have a nice large canopy for your stroller, then both strollers are there for you. The canopy for the Chicco Bravo is slightly larger than that of the Peg Perego Booklet. But they both provide your child with cover and enough protection from bad weather.
As a bonus, the Peg Perego Booklet canopy is made from UPF50 sunproof fabric that helps to protect your child against harmful UV rays.
