UPPAbaby Vista V2 Stroller Features We Love

Jump to Section

The UPPAbaby Vista V2 is a full-size expandable stroller that is well known for its versatility, functionality, and multiple configurations. First-time parents love it because it can easily convert from a single stroller to a tandem double stroller. Simply purchase a RumbleSeat [sold separately] when the time comes to easily accommodate your growing family.

This stroller has come a long way since it launched back in 2006, and UPPAbaby has been gaining street cred from parents and celebrities alike ever since. John Legend, Andy Cohen, and Thomas Rhett are just a few celebrity dads who have been seen out and about pushing their littles in an UPPAbaby stroller.

The new design and fun colourways have us wanting to expand our brood mainly so that we have an excuse to hit the playground in a swoon-worthy V2 — you too?

We can’t wait to see where the new Vista V2 will take you, so let's jump right into some of the new and notable features.

Meet the V2

So What's New?

After well over a decade in the business, UPPAbaby is redefining its brand and we are here for it! They’ve removed some minor branding on the new V2s which is a small change with a mighty point. The older you get the more comfortable you feel in your own skin, right? [raise your hand if you agree!]

The result? A sleek stroller that speaks for itself on the playground.

Say goodbye to:

  • UPPAbaby logo on the stroller frame
  • UB branding from the silver seat hub
  • UB embossed branding on the handlebar and bumper bar cover

Redesigned Canopy

Yes for more sun protection!

We love that the Vista V2 Toddler Seat and RumbleSeat have been redesigned with an adjustable canopy with a zip-out fabric extender. It remains UPF 50+ but now has 2 air vent panels to allow for air-flow on those hot days.

If Mr. Sun decides to come out to play but you’ve forgotten your little one’s hat at home, you will be thankful that this new canopy offers more sun protection than ever before.

No-Rethread Harness

Guys, this new feature is a BIG deal.

The Vista V2 five-point harness has been upgraded to a no-rethread harness on all V2 models. When a growth spurt hits simply slide the straps up and down to adjust the shoulder height, et voila!

The previous harness was pretty user-friendly – but most parents would find themselves going to YouTube for a quick refresh on how to make this alteration.

Updated Toddler Seat

We already know that the Vista V2 can accommodate up to 3 children*, but now you can keep your brood cruising comfortably for longer with an updated toddler seat that features a taller seat back and deeper footrest. If your little one has always been tracking in a high percentile you will appreciate this minor adjustment found on all Vista V2s.

*with the addition of a RumbleSeat and Piggyback Glider Board sold separately

Improved Suspension + Wheel Locks

The OG Vista was an easy choice for its all-wheel suspension.

The new Vista V2 now has softer rear-spring suspension so you can go ahead and take on any terrain with a happy camper in tow. We also love that the Vista V2 now comes with handy visual indicators to signify if the wheel is locked or unlocked:
  • GREEN: Unlocked
  • CLEAR: Locked

Basket Size

One of our favourite features on the Vista V2 is the large and functional basket size.

We have personally done an entire grocery shop using the Vista basket as our only means of transportation — it can hold up to 30 pounds worth of diapers, milk, or even bananas! The basket weight capacity on the V2 remains the same but has improved durability and a new shape making for easier access when moving your belongings in and out.

New Materials + Colours

Now, to the fun part – which colour will you choose?! The V2 is available in a number of swoon-worthy fashions and some bold new trends like colour blocking.

UPPAbaby has come a long way since the days of Maya Yellow, Pascal Grey, and Denny Red.

Not only has the VISTA been refined and redesigned, but it’s also been given a gorgeous makeover in the textile department. Each colourway boasts luxurious all-grain leather details in one of x3 complementary colour coordinated hues:
  • Chestnut leather
  • Saddle leather
  • Black leather

The interior of both the V2 Toddler and RumbleSeats are black for the majority of the fashions.

As mentioned, these new fashions boast a distinct colour blocking technique that is noticeable on the interior of the seat, and on the included Bassinet. Speaking of the included Bassinet – all Vista V2 models have an updated quilted Boot Cover and boast a colour coordinated base that matches its corresponding Toddler Seat and Canopy. You can still attach your Bassinet to your frame to create a pram for those quick on-the-go adventures with baby.

More than a Stroller

We know that you know that the Vista V2 is more than just a stroller–for some parents, it's a comfort blanket.

Is that an UPPAbaby?” is a classic maternity leave pick-up line and the conversation starter needed to make that new Mom friend on the playground.
