For 2020, the UPPAbaby VISTA is getting a name change and a makeover that will add even more convenience, quality and style to this best-selling stroller.

The UPPAbaby VISTA V2 offers new colors, improved maneuverability, a roomier Toddler Seat to accommodate taller kids, a redesigned canopy for added ventilation and sun protection, and a no-rethread harness for hassle-free adjustments.

The UPPAbaby VISTA V2 is available for pre-order from Strolleria now and is expected to ship in February 2020. 

The 2019 UPPAbaby VISTA is available to ship immediately and offers the same great features, including the same weight, specifications, fold and configurations as the 2020 model.

Let's take a look at the differences between the 2020 UPPAbaby VISTA V2 and 2019 UPPAbaby VISTA.

    2020 UPPAbaby VISTA V2 vs. 2019 UPPAbaby VISTA Price

    The starting price of the 2020 UPPAbaby VISTA V2 has increased by $30, to $929.99. Many colors cost $969.99 because of their more premium and texturized fabrics.

    2020 UPPAbaby VISTA V2 vs. 2019 UPPAbaby VISTA Wheels and Maneuverability

    The UPPAbaby VISTA will be an even smoother ride in 2020, thanks to new wheels and upgraded suspension.

    The wheels on the UPPAbaby VISTA V2 are softer to absorb more bumps in the road, and the frame has been redesigned with a spring-action suspension system. When you push down on the VISTA V2, you'll notice how the frame gives to the pressure and immediately bounces back—absorbing shock from the ride so that your child won't feel it.

    The 2020 model also adds a new feature to the VISTA's front wheels: green indicators that provide a visual signal when the wheels are locked and unlocked.

    2020 UPPAbaby VISTA V2 vs. 2019 UPPAbaby VISTA Toddler Seat Size

    Your growing toddler will have more room in the Toddler Seat of the 2020 UPPAbaby VISTA V2, which features a higher seat back and deeper footrest. The weight capacity of the Toddler Seat remains 50 pounds.

    The lower RumbleSeat is not changing in size for 2020, and its weight capacity is 35 pounds.

    On the left of the photo below, compare the seat of the 2020 VISTA V2 with the 2019 stroller (pictured in Jake Black).

    2020 UPPAbaby VISTA V2 vs. 2019 UPPAbaby VISTA Comparison

    See the Toddler Seat measurements for the VISTA and VISTA V2 below.

    Seat Back Height

    • VISTA: 19"
    • VISTA V2: 20"

    Leg Rest Length

    • VISTA: 11"
    • VISTA V2: 11"

    Footrest Depth

    • VISTA: 2"
    • VISTA V2: 2.5"

    2020 UPPAbaby VISTA V2 vs. 2019 UPPAbaby VISTA Canopy

    The canopy of the 2020 VISTA V2 offers more protection and ventilation on your sunny strolls.

    For both the Toddler Seat and RumbleSeat, the 2020 canopy has been redesigned so that additional fabric zips out to create an extension and open a mesh peek-a-boo window.

    The new canopy gives the stroller a more sophisticated look while providing complete sun coverage for your child. A second flap in the front of the canopy can be opened for additional ventilation.

    2020 UPPAbaby VISTA V2 vs. 2019 UPPAbaby VISTA Comparison

    Instead of the fabric extension, the 2019 VISTA includes a shiny silver sunshade that can be pulled out of the canopy for additional coverage. And instead of two ventilation panels, the 2019 stroller has a single, ventilated window, with a fabric flap that must be rolled up and secured when the window is in use.

    2020 UPPAbaby VISTA V2 vs. 2019 UPPAbaby VISTA Comparison

    Additionally, most colors of the 2019 VISTA display the UPPAbaby logo in large lettering on the side of the canopy. On the VISTA V2, you'll find the logo on a small leather tab on the canopy for a more understated look.

    2020 UPPAbaby VISTA V2 vs. 2019 UPPAbaby VISTA Harness

    No rethread, no hassle: On the 2020 UPPAbaby VISTA V2, simply slide the harness up and down to adjust its height for your quickly-growing child.

    The 2019 VISTA harness requires more time and effort for adjustments, as you'll need to detach and rethread the harness through its slots.

    2020 UPPAbaby VISTA V2 vs. 2019 UPPAbaby VISTA Weight and Dimensions

    The stroller weight and dimensions have not changed from 2019 to 2020. Here are the measurements for both stroller models.

    Stroller Weight

    • Frame and seat: 26.6 pounds
    • Frame: 19.3 pounds

    Dimensions

    • Open: 36"L x 25.7"W x 39.5"H
    • Folded with seat attached: 17.3"L x 25.7"W x 33"H
    • Folded without seat attached: 16.8"L x 25.7"W x 33"H

    Car Seats Compatible with 2020 UPPAbaby VISTA V2 and 2019 UPPAbaby VISTA

    The 2020 UPPAbaby VISTA V2 and the 2019 UPPAbaby VISTA are compatible with the same infant car seats.

    However, UPPAbaby is releasing a new VISTA adapter for Nuna/Cybex/Maxi-Cosi car seats that raises the car seat closer to the parent. As a result, parents using these car seats will only need a single adapter when using the VISTA as a double stroller, with the car seat in the upper position. The new adapter can be used with the stroller in both single and double mode.

    By comparison, the 2019 Nuna/Cybex/Maxi-Cosi adapter must be used at the same time as the upper adapter in order to create enough space on the double stroller.

    Both the 2020 and 2019 VISTA are compatible with these car seats:

    • UPPAbaby MESA
    • Chicco KeyFit, KeyFit30 and Fit2
    • Clek Liing
    • Cybex Aton and Cloud Q series 
    • Maxi-Cosi Mico Max 30, Mico AP, Mico NXT, Mico, Citi, Cabrio and CabrioFix
    • Nuna PIPA, PIPA Lite and PIPA Lite LX 
    • Peg-Perego Primo Viaggio 4-35 and 4-35 Nido

      No adapters are required when using the UPPAbaby MESA on the single VISTA, while adapters are needed when attaching any other car seat brand, as well as when using the VISTA as a double.

      For help with VISTA adapters, see this post: What Adapters Do I Need for the UPPAbaby VISTA? 

      See the video below for an overview of the car seats compatible with the UPPAbaby VISTA.

      2020 UPPAbaby VISTA V2 vs. 2019 UPPAbaby VISTA Basket

      For 2020, the VISTA V2 still has one of the roomiest storage baskets of any stroller, with a couple of changes.

      The basket now has a more sleek design that no longer uses the snaps seen on the 2019 stroller. It also includes a storage pocket for keeping accessories like your rain shield or car seat adapters easily accessible.

      2020 UPPAbaby VISTA V2 vs. 2019 UPPAbaby VISTA Comparison

      2020 UPPAbaby VISTA V2 Compatibility with Older Strollers

      The frame of the UPPAbaby VISTA hasn't changed since 2015, so car seats, stroller components and accessories from 2015-2020 are compatible.

      The 2020 UPPAbaby VISTA V2 RumbleSeat will fit on older frames from 2015-2019 but has a few different features, like the redesigned canopy and no-rethread harness. The seats will look similar, unless you have a stroller in a color that's been discontinued for 2020: Henry Blue Marl, William Chambray Oxford or Spenser Tartan Plaid.

      UPPAbaby is not selling the new 2020 Toddler Seat V2 for use on older frames.
