The Graco Quattro Tour Sport is a full-featured stroller that builds on the success of the similar Quattro Tour Deluxe (Discontinued). Owner feedback is similar, but professional reviewers give the Sport's updated elliptical frame better scores for maneuverability and ease of use. Parents like the Quattro Tour Sport's reversible sun canopy, storage space, smooth ride and the fact that it reclines fully for newborns. We found several complaints about this stroller's 26.5-pound weight, however. Owners say the Inglesina Zippy (*Est. $300) is easier to fold and steer, and it weighs less, but it costs twice as much.
Both ConsumerReports.org and its British counterpart, Which? magazine, offer independent test-based reviews of the Graco Quattro Tour Sport. Both sources offer impeccable ethics track records and comparative ratings, but only Which? adds a short write-up on each model. "Baby Bargains" doesn't commission laboratory tests, but reviews are based on solid research and consumer feedback. The Sport doesn't get as many user reviews as some other top-rated strollers, but there are a few posts both on Amazon.com and the Baby Bargains discussion forum.
1. Which? magazine
Like its American counterpart ConsumerReports.org, Which? magazine focuses more on rigorous testing than on lengthy write-ups. Editors like the Quattro Tour Sport's comfort and convenience features but say it's just too wide and bulky to maneuver well.

Review: Strollers, Denise and Alan Fields, Eighth edition
This version of the Graco Quattro Tour gets a handful of user reviews on Amazon.com. Most give it perfect scores, although one parent feels that a stroller as heavy as the Graco shouldn't be classified as a sport model.

Several users weigh in on the Graco Quattro Tour Sport on this companion site to the top-rated "Baby Bargains" book. There's some praise here for the Sport's ease of use and maneuverability, but several owners post that it's just too heavy.
