View Full Version : What's the big difference in the Teutonia Regent and Prestige?

They are both on sale here...........
but other than the weight difference, I can't see much difference. Any ideas? Are these going to have the same quality issues that the Toni has?

I'm looking at these, too, and trying to decide what to do (may also go with a Y2K for $199). One has a reversible seat (Regent, I think) and the other has a reversible handle (Prestige), and the Prestige has a much longer stride (better for taller people) than the Regent does. Some of the fabric choices are a little different, too.

The Regent is the newer model of the Mistral. It has a reversible handle, the handle shape is different (flat across vs ergo) and the seat is a bit lower to the ground. I have the Mistral and it is a wonderful stroller. It works great with a kiddy board too. (I'll try to attach a photo.)
The Prestige has a slightly higher, reversible seat, and and ergo handle. The Prestige is a more traditional pram style.
If I were choosing between these 2 I would get the Regent, and get a Zooper doll pram to match (older style), lol.

The attachments should be another with the board attached, and one of the Mistral itself.

i don't know about the prestige, but i have the regent and LOOOOOVVVVEEEE it. it's the greatest stroller we've ever come upon (for us). and i paid $400, and would do it again if i had to. i love this stroller. i can't believe the deals to be had on this. i say snatch it up FAST.
the regent has a reversible handle. you can switch the baby facing you or facing outward within one second flat. it's a comfy ride, SOOOOOO pretty, and my dh has even jogged with it (even though it's not meant to do that).
my dd doesn't like facing outwards, only facing me for long walks. this stroller has saved our lives! i love it, and highly recommend it.

Prestige includes the seat extension and apron (to allow the stroller to be use as a carriage). Regent doesn't. But they both have full recline.

Edit: I am not certain if only a fabric matching seat extension is included for Prestige, or a seat extension & a full apron is included. My old Teutonia catalogue says one thing (full apron + seat extension) but the BritaxUSA.com website says another.
