The seat of the Vista can recline to multiple positions and it can face the rear or the front of the stroller as needed. Reclining can be done with one hand. It can recline flat for your toddler to take a catnap or recline upright for them to enjoy the view.


The stroller frame can easily receive a rumble seat to transform your stroller to a double stroller. The rumble seat just like the toddler seat can face either the rear or front of the stroller and it can also recline to multiple positions.


Both the rumble seat and the toddler seat need adapters for proper installation especially if you plan on using this stroller in the double mode. The adapter lift the seats up, providing space between the two seats. This way your babies don’t feel cramped.

The adapters for the toddler seat have color coded dot indicators to ensure that they are installed properly. The rumble seat adapters come with the rumble seat.


Infant seat; car seat and bassinet

For your infant, you can attach an infant car seat to the stroller frame with the use of compatible adapters. The uppababy vista 2017 stroller is compatible with several name brand car seats like chicco, nuna, cybex, maxi-cosi and mesa.

You can convert your vista stroller into a double travel system stroller by attaching two infant car seats to it.

The vista can also receive a bassinet with the use of a compatible adapter. It can receive two bassinets to become a double pram stroller. You can start pushing your child from birth in this stroller when you use a pram.

The bassinet is certified for overnight sleep so when you and baby need to spend the night at grandma’s, you need not worry about a place for baby to sleep. Uppababy sells a bassinet stand as an accessory you can use indoors.

The bassinet that comes with this stroller has an aerated mattress pad and a vented bassinet base that allows for added breath-ability for your baby. The inner lining of the mattress repels water so you don’t have to worry about spit, sweat or other liquids soaking through.

You can relax knowing that your baby is sleeping on a dry surface. The pram has an easy care liner that zips out for easy cleaning.

Both the stroller and bassinet have big UPF 50+ canopies which adjust and have extendable sun visors or shade. These shades extend all the way down to provide plenty of protection from the elements.

The back of the canopy of the bassinet zips open to reveal a mesh lining that allows air to flow through to provide additional cooling for your baby, especially on hot summer days. The canopy of the stroller is height adjustable to accommodate for your growing child.

You can add a piggyback ride along board to the uppababy vista stroller to accommodate for a third older child and thus converting your stroller into a triple stroller. The possibilities with this stroller are numerous; you can combine a toddler seat, a pram and board or a rumble seat, a toddler seat and a board or …..let your imagination run wild.

Handlebar and belly bar     

Buy from Amazon

The Uppababy vista features a telescoping handlebar. This kind of handlebar is great because it meets the needs of parents of various heights, kicks and strides (especially when you add the piggyback board to the stroller). It is also great because you can make the handlebar short, to make it fit in tight places that other strollers won’t.

The new Vista by Uppababy has 100% full-grain leather on both the handlebar and bumper bar for a rich and classic appearance.

The leather on the handlebar is hand sewn and given a perforated pattern for a sure and better grip while pushing your baby whereas, that on the bumper bar is designed to be resilient so it can handle all the messy hands and still clean easily. The bumper bar is removable and can swing out of the way to allow for easy access to the stroller seat.

Uppababy uses 100% leather which is a lot more breathable, flexible and durable than faux leather and like any genuine leather, it only gets better as it gets older. The tanning process used in making the leather for this stroller is REACH certified.

This means that they pass the rigorous test set by this organization that oversees the use of toxic chemical in factories or processing plants.

The 2017 Uppababy vista comes in four leather fabric designs; Austin, Henry, Loic and Sabrina. Other colors include Uppababy Vista Jake, Taylor, pascal and dennison. There are zip on leather covers available for use on older models.

Storage basket    

The storage basket is big and will hold a diaper bag, snacks and other supplies for you and the family. It is great for shopping in the mall and it is super easy to access from behind.


All four wheels swivel and are foam free and puncture free. This means you will not have to worry about punctures and flats. The front wheels can lock to make the stroller more stable, especially on uneven terrain. This stroller features both front and rear independent suspension. This ensures that the ride will be smooth for your child, regardless of the terrain.


The vista folds in one step and stands when folded. It can be folded with or without the seat attached. The frame is relatively light weight and durable as it is a combination of aluminum and magnesium. When folded, it has a carry handle for easy transportation.
