Top 3 Features to Note
We think the best features of the luxurious UPPAbaby Vista are:
- Carries to 3 babies at once
- Includes toddler seat and bassinet
- Large SPF 50+ canopy
It has a sleek look that we like too, including sophisticated genuine leather accents. The handlebar and bumper bar match in the same soft leather. The bassinet is slightly longer than the previous Vista model for more room for baby and has a big sunshade. The bassinet’s included mattress has ventilation too for great breathability.
The Vista Baby Stroller measures 24 x 17 x 34 inches and can fold up to put in trunk or storage. At 26 pounds, it is light in weight in comparison to some other models. Also, the four all-terrain wheels make for a comfortable, smooth ride for baby, even when going over gravel or uneven ground. Then push the easy-to-use parking brake on the back right-hand side of the stroller to stop it.
UPPAbaby Vista vs. Other Baby Strollers
When thinking about what is unique about the luxury Vista, right away we think it’s the ability to carry up to 3 babies. That’s not at different times either; the stroller can hold three infants at one time. With some of the other best baby strollers in this luxury price range, parents can only travel with one child. The benefit of this feature is huge for a family bigger than one child. It makes doing grocery shopping or any other task much easier; all children can be in the stroller rather than one on the arm and one in the stroller.
Furthermore, UPPAbaby makes this stroller inline rather than using a side-by-side design. Thus, you can easily navigate around people and other obstacles on the sidewalk, as well as going down grocery aisles without width being an issue. Unfortunately, though it is a bit bulky when folded up because of the all-terrain wheels. This makes for a bit awkward movement when putting it in the trunk or elsewhere. But it can fold in only one step, with or without the seat, which consider to be more important.
Also, UPPAbaby makes this travel system with both bassinet and toddler seat. Rather than just offering one or the other, the Vista includes both for a functional set. Switch out the bassinet for the seat whenever you want. The bassinet is usable from birth through 20 pounds. And its deep design means baby can even sleep in it temporarily, for example if you stay at a friend’s house overnight.
Thus, it can accommodate a family with one toddler and one infant easily. Alternatively, if you have one child, then this system will last you from birth through toddler age, making for a long-lasting purchase. We like too that the toddler seat matches the bassinet with its classy good looks. To prepare fully for a newborn, you could get the UPPAbaby Vista and the UPPAbaby Mesa Car Seat.
Lastly, the Vista has one of the biggest under-seat storage baskets of baby strollers. While it is at the higher price range of baby strollers, one of the reasons its worth it is the storage basket that can hold up to 30 pounds. It is roomy enough to hold both groceries and a diaper bag.

What Else We Like about the Vista
While some of the best baby strollers have big canopies, not all of them have an SPF protection canopy. UPPAbaby chooses a large SPF 50+ sunshade to help keep baby’s sensitive skin out of the sun’s potentially harmful way. The sun visor is also made of quality woven fabric and wrinkle-free, so it keeps looking great day after day. The canopy is unique too because it can move up or down too, which we haven’t seen on many baby strollers. Adjust the canopy’s height to cover your child as he or she grows.
And the canopy has a peek-a-boo window too. That means you can keep an eye on your little one as you go for a walk or errand to make sure they’re safe. We like that the window opens and closes with magnets. There’s no noisy Velcro like with some other baby strollers; Velcro can wake up a sleeping baby.
Another feature we like is the adjustable handlebar. Simply push a button in the middle of the bar to move it to a height that suits you. Making it a comfortable height means you can push the baby stroller without discomfort. And if your partner or another caregiver wants to push the stroller, they can easily adjust it for their comfort too.
Also changeable is whether the toddler seat faces toward or away from you. Give your child options to look at you or watch their surroundings instead. Recline the seat too, such as when the baby wants to nap; choose from 5 positions and move the seat via a 180-degree lever. It’s easy to use the lever with only one hand! The leg rest adjusts too and even has a footrest attached for a comfy ride for an older baby.
Being able to personalize the UPPAbaby Vista in all of these ways, from the handlebar height to the way the toddler seat faces, makes it one of the best baby strollers, in our opinion.
Final Thoughts on the UPPAbaby Vista Baby Stroller
The Vista has a lot more in its favor than against it. While it’s bulky to move when folded up, this stroller is very practical and functional, all while looking attractive. It can hold up to three babies at one time, making it a terrific option for a growing family. Plus, the travel system comes with both a comfortable bassinet and toddler seat, meaning it’s among the baby strollers usable from birth through toddler age.
The personalizable features of the Vista make it a standout in our eyes, from the big canopy that can move up or down, depending on your child’s height, to the adjustable handlebar. The UPPAbaby Vista Baby Stroller is a great option for a family with 1, 2 or 3 babies who want to customize the stroller to their lifestyle.
