Maclaren Quest vs Triumph

Updated on August 23, 2017

What's the Difference Between the Maclaren Quest and Maclaren Triumph?

Maclaren has been making fine umbrella strollers since the mid-1960s. They are high quality strollers, known for their maneuverability and light weight. The fact that these Maclaren strollers can also hold a child up to 50 pounds safely and comfortably ensures that you will be able to use these strollers for years to come.

However, sometimes the similarity of these Maclaren strollers can become confusing to consumers. Parents want to get their choice right the first time because these strollers are not cheap! Particularly confusing is the difference between the Quest and the Triumph, two very similar models. This lens will show you the similarities and differences between them so you can make the best choice for your family.

Maclaren Triumph Stroller

The more basic model

Many parents who want a lightweight umbrella stroller must wait until their babies are old enough to sit up on their own because umbrella strollers generally do not have reclining seats.

However, the Maclaren Triumph solves this problem by having a multi-position recline feature so that babies as young as three months old can lie comfortably and safely with the included 5-point harness.

These are the features of the Maclaren Triumph.

  • Multi-position reclining seat
  • Lightweight with carrying strap
  • Reflective accents for nighttime safety
  • One-hand collapse and fold
  • Lockable front swivel wheels
  • Storage basket under seat
  • Adjustable 5-point safety harness
  • Removable washable seat
  • Foot operated parking brakes

The following lists are a compilation of all the reviews that have been reported on sites such as BabiesRUs and Amazon.


  • Light weight and compact
  • Parents liked the recline feature
  • Light weight
  • Excellent for taking on vacations


  • No parent drink holders
  • Insufficient sun canopy
  • Storage basket is too small
  • Heavy bags may cause stroller to tip over backward
