Single or Double: 
The Gazelle S and the Vista V2 can both be used as a single or double stroller. In addition to the included stroller seat, you can also attach a bassinet or infant car seat to the frame simultaneously. 

Travel System Capability: 
This compatibility with infant car seats allows these strollers to be used as a travel system for seamlessly moving your child from car to stroller.  

Multiple Configurations: 
The abundance of seating (included seat, bassinet, and infant car seat) allows for plenty of configurations. You can position your children in forward or parent-facing modes, providing flexibility for different stages of a child's growth and varying family needs. 

Compact Design: 
Both the Cybex Gazelle S and the UPPAbaby Vista V2 strollers can be folded to a compact size for fitting into small spaces like the trunk or your vehicle or storage room. 

Smooth Ride:
With swivelling front wheels for smooth maneuverability and easy steering, your baby will feel like they’re floating on a cloud as both models are designed with all-wheel suspension systems. 

Stylish Fashions:
Both baby rides come in a wide range of modern colours to suit your tastes and lifestyle.

On The Go Eating: UPPAbaby offers a Child Snack Tray that can attach in place of the bumper bar, and Cybex has its own version — the Platinum Stroller Snack Tray.

Adjustments:
 

These strollers share a host of adjustable features for convenience and comfort: 

  1. Handle Bar: Cybex and UPPAbaby equip each stroller with a luxurious leather-wrapped handlebar that not only provides comfort and a touch of elegance but can also be adjusted to the perfect height for parents of all sizes. 

  2. Footrest: As your baby grows, so do their needs. Both seats feature an adjustable footrest that ensures your babe’s little tootsies are supported just right, whether they're taking a nap or sitting up to explore the world! 

  3. Recline: With multiple adjustable recline positions, you can easily find the perfect angle for naptime, playtime, or snacktime. 

  4. Canopy: Shielding your baby from harmful UV rays are oversized, extendable UPF 50+ canopies which also have built-in mesh for viewing and ventilation. 

  5. No-Rethread Harness: Safety should never be compromised. These strollers come with a no-rethread harness, allowing you to adjust the harness height without the hassle of rethreading straps.  

Wheels of Change  

How do these high-end tot trolleys differ? Here’s what will make (or break) your buying decision: 


What’s Included:
Both come with the stroller frame, a seat unit, an under seat basket, and a rain cover. The Gazelle S  also includes a cup holder, car seat adapters, and a large shopping basket, while the Vista V2 comes with a bug shield and the V2 Bassinet. 
 

Price:
The Vista V2 is more expensive, selling for $1,444.99 versus $1199.99 for the Gazelle S (a difference of $245). However, if you wish to add in the Gazelle S Cot, it will set you back an additional $349.99.
 

Car Seat Adapters:
The Gazelle S comes with adapters that make it compatible with infant car seats from Cybex, as well as the following:
 

The VISTA V2 is fully-compatible with UPPAbaby’s Mesa V2 infant car seat. It can also be used with Nuna PIPA, Maxi-Cosi, and Cybex infant seats with this adapter, Peg Perego Primo Viaggio infant seats with this adapter, and Chicco Keyfit 30 infant seats with this adapter

Accessories:
Cybex offers the Gazelle S Cot, Gazelle S 2023 Seat Unit, and the Gazelle S Kid Board as add-ons. For the UPPAbaby Vista V2, you can purchase a number of accessories including the Infant SnugSeat, the RumbleSeat V2, the Rumbleseat Rain Shield, and the Piggyback Ride-Along Board.

Storage:
A large under-seat basket on both strollers can hold 30 lbs. The V2 offers a slightly bigger basket but the Gazelle S includes a detachable shopping basket that can carry up to an additional 25 lbs — great for groceries or more baby essentials! 

Wheel Size:
Both have 8” front wheels but the Gazelle has 11” rear wheels while the V2’s are slightly larger at 11.5”. 

Secondary Seat Discrepancies:
Adding in a secondary seat differs quite a bit in these strollers. The Gazelle S Seat Unit offers more flexability as it can be added to the top or bottom position on the stroller frame, has a 50 lbs. weight limit, and features an adjustable footrest. However, on the Vista V2, the RumbleSeat V2 can only be used in the bottom position, has a 35 lbs. weight limit, and does not feature an adjustable footrest. 

Different Folds:
The Gazelle S can fold with two seats attached to its frame, whereas the VIista V2 can only fold with the included seat attached to the top position and in a forward-facing orientation. 

Ride-On Board:
Both strollers can allow a third child to catch a ride. The Vista V2 is compatible with the
Piggyback Ride-Along Board, which can flip up and out of the way, even when attached. The Gazelle S can be used with Cybex’s Gazelle S Kid Board, but it must be removed when not in use. 

Stroll to Victory  

Cybex and UPPAbaby have both made excellent high-end strollers in their Gazelle S and Vista V2 models. While they share plenty of features that any parent would love, it's the little things that matter. So go through the differences and decide what’s most important to you! 

Whatever you decide, know that both are outstanding single strollers that have double stroller capability, and can even allow a third child to climb aboard the ride along boards. With either option, every outing will be an enjoyable escapade for you and your tots!
