Since there are so many stroller brands in the market, it is good to look around first before committing to purchase the stroller for even though they are made to have the same purpose, bound by different manufacturer and models, many of them will have more or less features as well. However, we can start searching based on our needs first and then look for the type of stroller match our preference or at least have the type of features we need.

Britax B Mobile and B Agile Design
We are sure most of us can instantly recognize the difference between these two strollers because their design are different. Both of them are looking stylish but we do think that B Agile have a more modern look and come with a design of regular stroller while the B Mobile seems to be lighter and looking like an umbrella stroller. Placing them side by side, the B Mobile stroller is definitely smaller than the other model as well as when they are folded. Read also: Evenflo Sibby vs Pivot here.
Britax B Mobile and B Agile Features
The difference is very clear on the canopy since this is probably the first thing we see when looking at these stroller. B Mobile canopy is wide and constructed with 3 panels including the smaller visor that can be folded and extended as we need it. the B Agile canopy is also big but this one is bigger in our opinion and instead of 3 panels, the canopy only have two wide panel that can be extended and folded as well.
Another difference is above the canopy because the B Mobile stroller don’t have a peek a boo window to check on your children and this additional feature can be found on B Agile model. Moving down, here we can see their seats along with the harness to keep your children safe on their seat and what differ them on this side is B Agile stroller have some extra padding on the harness that is not available in B Mobile model while the seats are still very comfortable.
Britax B Mobile and B Agile seats can be reclined until reaching a very low position but they can’t be set until flat. They also have a foot rest but as you can see from the sample picture above, the footrest in B Agile is wider so our children’s feet won’t be hanging while they on the passenger seat unlike the short foot rest on B Mobile. In front of B Mobile seat, we can put a bumper bar in case our children want something to hold on to but it is not available on the other model.
Moving up to the handle bar, unfortunately, both of Britax B Mobile and B Agile handle bar are stationary and they are quite the same with a round design. It is fine to accommodate parents with standard height but those with taller or shorter height might find it awkward when pushing the stroller. The handle is very sturdy so when going shopping, we can even put diaper bag on it and we don’t need to carry them manually.
Another drwaback that we find it unfortunate is they are not coming with any tray when purchasing the product thus, if you are the type who often push the stroller to a park nearby and feed your baby while enjoying the sight, we will need to purchase additional tray. The B Agile offer a food tray for an accessories but the B Mobile model currently don’t have a tray accessories to offer. However, some parents seems to find that the frame does match some trays from other strollers.
Moving to the main basket, both of Britax B Mobile and B Agile are coming with a pretty large basket while they are not the biggest in the market, we definitely still find them useful to help carrying more stuff on the go. Below these main basket, there are the wheels and both strollers are also featured with different design here. The B Mobile is coming with 4 wheels design while B Agile with 3 wheels design but all of them are doubled. However, the weight limit of these strollers are still the same at 55 pounds.
The wheels diameter is also different with B Agile being the bigger one and their front wheels can be locked just in case you are strolling in a rougher terrain so the stroller can be easier to control. Another important feature or capabilities that we need to consider when looking for a stroller is their folding system because we are going to carry them in our car’s trunk or store them in the store room and an easy to fold stroller can help us consume less time and space later.
The folding system of Britax B Mobile and B Agile are very similar to each other and when folded, these strollers will become half of the original size. To fold B Mobile stroller, all we need to do is pulling the handle located on the seat and the stroller will come together into a far smaller, more compact form. What’s unique here is the handle bar will also fold a little because before pulling the handle, we need to press the round item on the handle to make it break in half.
The aforementioned handle bar on B Mobile is in fact also used as a carrying handle because we can sling them in our shoulder to transport them to another place which is very useful if you take public transportation like bus. At the other hand, B Agile stroller will also fold in half but it won’t come together and won’t be as compact. Since there is no bumper bar to handle the stroller when folded, the only handle we can use to carry them is the folding handle.
Now, let’s compare Britax B Mobile with B Agile. As you may already know, the prominent difference between these strollers is on the design because B Agile is easier to maneuver due to the 3-wheel design but in term of compact, just like the name, B Mobile is lighter, more compact and easier to transport from one place to another. Additionally, B Mobile is not featured with a peek a boo window like B Agile canopy.
Britax B Mobile vs B Agile
All in all, both of them can be a great option for your family’s stroller. However, the choice is all yours and it should be based on your need. But, if you are using a car, we prefer Britax B Agile better because the stroller is easier to maneuver and has a window on its canopy as well as better tires and wheels than B Mobile.
