Pros:Best in price range.  Smooth, comfortable, one handed steering.

Cons:Bulky, heavy, canopy needs to come down more.

The Bottom Line: Evenflo Aura stroller has great features, high comfort and easy manuverability for those who want quality at an affordable price.


My daughter is one and a half years old and she has been riding in the Evenflo Aura stroller since she was born.  Having a plethera of strollers on the market to choose from, I really didn't know which one would be the best to purchase.  Given my husband's and my small budget, I immediately disqualified all the fancy, upscale brands such as Pergo and Chicco.  When I finally decided on the Evenflo Aura stroller, I was sure I made the right choice since Evenflo is a trusted brand that has been around for decades.

The Evenflo Aura model is a smooth ride for both baby and mommy/daddy.  It navigates with ease around corners and the wheels do not "drag" when manuvered around tight spaces. With that said, sometimes it is difficult to get through small department store aisles and the like due to its bulkiness.  However, I've seen much bigger strollers (and smaller ones for that matter) that do not handle with as much ease.

Pushing this stroller is so comfortable.  The handle is wrapped with a cushion of foam that is thin enough to get a good grip on the handle.
My favorite feature on the Evenflo Aura is the one-handed steering. Right in the middle of the handle bar, there is a second handle that hangs below the main handle.  When gripped with one hand, the stroller can be steered just as easily and smoothly as pushing the stroller with two hands.  This is extremely useful if I have to answer my cellphone or take a drink from my water bottle without the stroller vearing off to one side.

There are 2 cup holders that will hold anything from baby's bottle to your water bottle, soda can, smoothie cup, etc.  It does have a visible warning on the stroller to not place hot beverages in the cup holders due to risk of spilling and burning the child.  Honestly, those cup holders are so strong- they have a sort of plastic webbing inside that holds the container in place- that it is unlikely to spill your drink BUT of course safety of the child comes first and you never know, so I take heed to that warning and skip the hot Starbucks.  Another feature in the "Parent Console" is a nifty plastic baby wipe container that lifts up to reveal a nice little compartment for small items such as keys, cellphone, wallet, chapstick...anything of the sort.  I love this hidden compartment!  It is so convenient especially if I am just going for a quick walk and not taking a purse.

The storage basket below is made of fabric and is very roomy.  You can fit a baby bag and a purse and a few other things as well.  THe only thing I find wrong with the "basket" is that it doesn't have the greatest support on the bottom so eventually it starts to sag like a droopy diaper.  This is such a minor irritation rather than an inconvenience. 

As far as the ride for baby, the seat is nicely padded and I imagine it is rather pleasant to sleep in the reclining position.  Another slightly irritating detail is the fact that when completely up right, the back still isn't erect enough for my daughter.  If she is buckled in with the 5 point harness, she cannot sit up as much as she'd like so I have to use the harness as a 3 point.  (Great versatility though!)  Despite these minor things, the one thing that I really do wish this stroller had was a canopy that came down further for more sun protection.  I have to attach a seperate shade to the canopy to maximize protection.  On the upside though, the canopy does have a little "sneek a peek" window so that you can see if your baby is enjoying herself without having to stop. 

All in all, you cannot go wrong with this stroller. I've tried out my sister's childrens strollers that were much more expensive and they were not as pleasant or easy to use. With the Aura, you can fold up the stroller by squeezing the middle of the handle (its kind of tricky at first but fairly easy to do with one hand after a while).  The stroller is a bit heavy when lifted and it does take up a considerable amount of trunk space but I find these things are easily overlooked once you spend an entire day navigating the Aura and realize its been a breeze.
