I know a lot of mom’s love and swear by this stroller, but is it really that good? The pricetag makes me want to believe it is… When you look up reviews for multifunction strollers, it’s always at the top of the list for a lot of reasons. I know the city select is comparable, and personally, I think it has a few more pros than UB, except that UB has all wheel suspension, and baby jogger only has front wheel. For those who have it/tried it out, what do you think?

I’m not a mom yet (30 weeks pregnant), but we just bought the uppababy vista (well my mom bought it for us). Some of the features that we liked:
– Tried it in store and liked how smooth it rode
– We live right by a park and think it will handle nicely on the grass and dirt paths
– Baby can nap in the bassinet portion (we also bought the bassinet stand)
– Can turn into a double stroller
Warning: It is HEAVY! I wouldn’t want to be taking it in and out of a car everytime to use it. We live within a town, so I’m walking distance to most stores. We bought a stroller frame for our car seat for things we have to drive to.
I didn’t look at the city select, so can’t help there!

I would NEVER say it’s worth the money because it is stupid expensive and that is just ridiculous. However we bought the vista because of a recommendation and also from hearing stories of Moms crying in parking lots because their stroller was not working and frustrating them. The Vista is fantastic for the main reason that it navigates like a dream. You can make a full 360 turn inside a very tight space. (Needed in crowded areas!)
PP: Heavy? I don’t know about that. I don’t find it heavy at all and I take it in and out of my trunk all the time. No heavier than any other stroller I would imagine.

I’ve been researching strollers since I found out I was pregnant and keep coming back to the UB Vista. I want to purchase it only if wortht the price tag.

I love the vista but I didn’t get it for my daughter. I ended up with a contours bliss which is similar in style but more budget friendly. It doesn’t drive as well as the ubv but it’s definitely smooth. I don’t use my stroller a ton though. I liked that it was lighter and didn’t have a separate bassinet (the seat folds into a bassinet). It also doesn’t have that obnoxious bar through the basket like the ubv does. what you are looking for in a stroller and how often you use it and where really makes a big difference in what you will end up with.

I adore my Vista. The 2015 version is worth every penny. And their customer service is amazing. You get what you pay for with strollers.

The vista is 25lbs and bulky. It’s one of the biggest negatives on any review I read. Our stroller frame is 12lbs.

Following also 🙂 We were looking at the vista and the Cruz! But will try them in store and weigh the two against one another.

We debated back and forth between the UB vista and the bugaboo cameleon. Both very pricey although the cameleon pricier. We ended up with the bugaboo b/c the vista seemed HUGE in comparison. I jog with my cameleon all the time and it works great, I think the ride is smoother than the vista. Both are great options! Agree with the PP who said you get what you pay for in strollers.

We love our UB Vista. I bought it used in 2013 to get a better price and use it every day. We live in the city and are big stroller users. Its basket is big enough to do grocery shopping and the adapter allowed us to use our carseat with it. DS went through a phase of rejecting naps anywhere but his stroller so for 3 months he took all naps in his stroller. Back when I got it, the one pro of the City Select was that you could have more configurations for the second seat that the Vista but the new version fixes that. Driving both in the store, the Vista’s handling was so so much better. The Cruz lacks a bassinet but honestly I used my bassinet only in the house in the holder and used the carseat adapter instead with the stroller.
However, if I lived in the suburbs I wouldn’t get either stroller. Both are bulky and hard to fold. I never fold mine but its a pain (although I think that was improved in the newest version. If we travel by car (which is rare) we have a UB G-Lite which has been great.
If I was not a city dweller, I’d look into the City Mini, the UB G-Luxe (which is both lightweight and has a recline), the Bugaboo Bee, or the Babyzen Yoyo
