Why Everyone Loves The UPPAbaby VISTA Stroller
One of the number one comments users make about the UPPAbaby VISTA stroller is that it is extremely sturdy and very well made. “A quality stroller!” Users say the stroller is very easy to maneuver, turns corners effortlessly, and some users can even steer the stroller one-handed. The stroller has a great suspension system and handles very smoothly and users think this is the perfect strollers for those who like to take long, outdoor walks with their baby.
Several users also are impressed with how easy this stroller is to assemble—most users say the assembly process took only five minutes; just pop on the wheels and you are ready to go! Reviewers love the huge storage basket and are very pleased with the large, UV protected sun canopy. They also love that the canopy has a ventilated peek-a-boo window to increase air flow into the stroller on a warm day. Other great features of the UPPAbaby VISTA is its telescoping push handle which prevents tall parents from kicking the rear axle, and the great color selection.
The stroller seat back can be extended so the stroller will grow with your toddler and the stroller seat provides wonderful back support and is extremely comfortable for your child to sit in. The seat is also reversible so your child can face you or the world and the seat is positioned high on the stroller so that your child rides close to you. This helps keep your baby away from unfriendly elements and also allows the stroller to be used as a makeshift highchair at any dinner table. In addition, this high seat protects your back since you do not have to bend down far to put your child in or take your child out of the stroller seat. Unlike the 2009 VISTA, the 2010 and 2011 UPPAbaby VISTA has seat that can lay completely flat or sit fully upright.
Users love that the bassinet comes standard with the stroller and say the bassinet material is very soft, and is environmentally friendly. No need to worry about putting your baby’s skin against unfriendly materials. One user writes that she even uses the bassinet as a sort of Moses Basket for her baby so that her baby can sleep close to her in the master bedroom.
The stroller has an easy one step fold and can be folded with the stroller seat attached. It also folds compactly and it fits in the trunks of a sedan. The wheels can easily be popped off for an even more compact fold and the stroller stands on its own when folded. The VISTA’s foam ‘no flat’ tires are a real plus for this stroller and help to provide a super smooth ride without the fear of getting a flat.
For A Growing Family
The VISTA is designed to grow with your family and you can add a second seat to the stroller or a running board when you need to use the stroller with more than one child. Users say the maneuverability of the stroller is not affected by the addition of the second seat and they love that this is the only stroller they will ever need for their growing family. The stroller is also car seat compatible if you want to create a travel system.
Other strollers you may want to consider if you are looking for a stroller that can convert from a single to a double is the Baby Jogger City Select, the Britax B-Ready and the Valco Baby Tri Mode EX.

However, they do say that although it can be hard to maneuver this stroller between clothing racks in a store, the VISTA still works great as an everyday stroller. Other users feel that for the price paid, UPPAbaby should include a child snack tray and they are a bit disappointed that the optional second seat doesn’t recline flat.
