What is the difference between the UPPAbaby Vista V2 vs. Cruz V2 strollers?
The UPPAbaby Vista V2 stroller is a travel-system designed for growing families with its ability to accommodate additional seating and configurations, while the Cruz V2 stroller is a full-sized stroller with a light, more compact footprint. The Cruz V2 offers a streamlined option for urban or on-the-go use, focusing on a single-child setup.
Why is the UPPAbaby Vista V2 Bassinet useful?
The UPPAbaby Vista V2 's bassinet, which comes with the your purchase of the UPPAbaby Vista V2 , is a highlight for parents who appreciate versatility. Designed with perforated materials for breathability, the bassinet comes with an extendable UPF 50+ sunshade for added protection. When paired with the bassinet stand (sold separately), it's rated for overnight sleep, providing a convenient and safe sleeping solution when traveling or at home. And truly because UPPAbaby has thought of it all, the Bassinet Stand can transform into a stylish dual compartment hamper for two laundry bags. These hamper inserts are also sold separately. We know how much laundry babies require, so this is something useful for parents for years to come.
What are the different configurations on the UPPAbaby Vista V2 ?
The UPPAbaby Vista V2 's adaptability shines when transitioning from a single to a double or even triple stroller. Understanding the configurations and necessary adapters ensures you can fully utilize the stroller's capabilities as your family expands.
Utilize your Vista V2 stroller from birth with the included bassinet, the bassinet can be used until 6 months or until baby can sit up on their own. The UPPAbaby’s main stroller seat can hold up to 50lbs and can face both towards you and facing out. There are six different recline positions to ensure your little one has a comfortable ride.
When converting the Vista from a single to double stroller, it is important to be aware of the configurations you are able to achieve. The main seat that comes included with the Vista stroller can only be used on the top of the stroller. If you would like to achieve a configuration that allows for a seated child in the front (bottom seat) a Rumble Seat is needed.
When the stroller is configured as a double stroller, the bassinet can only be used in the front (bottom) position. Lower Vista adapters are needed to hold the bassinet in the front (bottom) position. When configuring the stroller for a newborn-6 month baby and an older child, baby can only ride on the top position of the stroller in an infant car seat or in the main seat with the UPPAbaby infant Snug Seat. The UPPAbaby infant Snug Seat fills in the main seat and creates a lay flat, newborn approved environment without the use of the bassinet.
It is important to note that the Rumble Seat can only be used on the bottom of the stroller and the main seat can only be used on the top. Upper adapters are needed to create all double configurations. The upper adapters create space in between the children and allow the stroller to be used as a double.
Here is what you will need to convert your UPPAbaby Vista V2 to a double:
- UPPAbaby Vista Upper Adapters: These are used to create space in between children
- UPPAbaby Rumble Seat : The additional seat needed to accommodate two seated passengers. This seat only fits on the bottom of the stroller and comes with its own set of adapters. 35lb weight limit
- UPPAbaby Vista Lower Adapters: These can be used to hold the Bassinet on the bottom of the stroller.
- UPPAbaby Infant Snug Seat: This can be added to either the Rumble Seat or main Vista Seat to create a newborn friendly environment in lieu of the bassinet. It’s important for us to note that the Bassinet does not fit on the top of the stroller with the Rumble Seat in place on the bottom. If it is preferred to have baby on the top of the stroller and big kid on the bottom, the Infant Snug Seat offers a more suitable position for newborns/infants for longer periods of stroller use compared to always using an infant car seat.
Additional Third Person
Adding the UPPAbaby Vista Piggyback allows for a third passenger on the Vista. This ride-on board is perfect for your older child once the Rumble Seat is outgrown. The UPPAbaby Vista Piggyback is directly compatible with the Vista frame and can be pushed to an upright position when not in use.
