The UPPAbaby Vista V2 and the Babyzen YOYO2 are two very different, yet equally popular strollers on the market. The Vista V2 is a full-size single stroller that can become a double stroller. Meanwhile, the YOYO2 is a super compact travel stroller that fits in airplane overhead bins, yet can also hold two if needed.
Overall, the Vista V2 is a larger stroller, with an oversized basket, bigger wheels, an included bassinet and the ability to accommodate a second child. The YOYO2 is about half the weight of the Vista V2, coming in at only 13.6 pounds, and priced around half the price less.
These two strollers are not in the same class, but they are still commonly compared. Many parents start off with a full size stroller like the Vista V2 and choose to downsize at some point to a more compact stroller. Or parents often have two strollers - a full size stroller and a travel stroller. These two would make a great pair!

UPPAbaby Vista V2
The UPPAbaby Vista V2 is one of the most versatile strollers on the market because it offers the option of converting to a double stroller for siblings or twins.
The Vista V2 can be used with two stroller seats, two infant car seats, two bassinets, or any combination therein. But plenty of parents buy the Vista V2 intending only to use it as a single stroller, thanks to its sturdy wheels, all-wheel suspension and oversized storage basket accommodating up to 30 pounds. The Vista V2 also comes with a bassinet that's safe for overnight use.
See the Vista V2 in the video below.
The Babyzen YOYO2 was born in France, where its sturdy frame and all-wheel suspension can tackle anything from grassy parks to cobblestone streets.
The YOYO2 folds in a flash and can be carried by an integrated shoulder strap, then stored in its included carry bag.
Use the same frame to attach three different seat options to the stroller: the 0+ Newborn Pack for a soft bassinet that folds with the stroller, the Babyzen Bassinet for a hard-bottomed bassinet that can be used on the ground, or the 6+ Color Pack, which includes the seat fabric to be used when your baby is sitting upright.
See the YOYO2 in the video below.
UPPAbaby Vista V2 vs. Babyzen YOYO2 Price

UPPAbaby Vista V2 vs. Babyzen YOYO2 Dimensions and Specs
The Vista V2 and YOYO2 are very different sizes because of their functional differences - one being a full-size single to double stroller and one being a compact, travel stroller. Because of its smaller size, the YOYO2 is better equipped for navigating smaller areas, storing in tight spaces, and traveling by airplane or cramped car. However, both will hold a similar size child.

UPPAbaby Vista V2 vs. Babyzen YOYO2 Age Requirements and Weight Capacity
The UPPAbaby Vista V2 can be used from birth by using the included bassinet or attaching a compatible infant car seat, or by adding the Infant SnugSeat accessory to the toddler seat for additional head and neck support. The bassinet is also approved for overnight sleep and can be paired with the stand to provide a safe sleep environment for your baby at home!
If you're planning to use your stroller during baby's first months, the Babyzen YOYO2 offers a few options, but they are all additional purchases. It can be paired with a compatible infant car seat with the car seat adapters. The YOYO2 also offers two additional configurations for a newborn when you attach the hard-bottomed YOYO Bassinet or the soft, foldable 0+ Newborn Pack. It can also become a double by pairing it with the YOYO Connect frame!
The soft Babyzen 0+ Newborn Pack folds with the stroller and includes a harness. The structured Babyzen Bassinet can be used off the stroller if you're visiting a friend or a restaurant, and it doesn't require a harness. However, neither are approved for overnight sleep.
The Vista V2 toddler seat (top, included seat) holds a child up to 50 pounds and features an adjustable canopy that slides up on the frame to create more headroom for your growing child. The YOYO2 holds a child up to 48.5 pounds, but has a smaller seat than the Vista V2 and no adjustable canopy height.
For the Vista V2, the second seat (called the RumbleSeat) for the lower position of the double stroller is smaller than the upper seat (known as the Toddler Seat). Learn more about the Vista's capabilities as a double stroller in this UPPAbaby Vista Toddler Seat vs. RumbleSeat comparison.
- Vista V2: 50 pounds for the upper toddler seat, 35 pounds for the lower RumbleSeat
- UPPAbaby Bassinet: 20 pounds or until the infant can push up on hands and knees, whichever comes first
- YOYO2: 48.5 pounds
UPPAbaby Vista V2 vs. Babyzen YOYO2 Wheels
In terms of maneuverability and ease of push, the Vista V2 will have an edge over the YOYO2 because of its larger wheels. However, both strollers do have all-wheel suspension.
The Vista V2 was updated in 2020 with dual-action suspension - meaning the springs work independently to provide the smoothest ride, a feature not seen on other strollers. The YOYO2’s independent, four-wheel suspension uses Hytrel, a high-tech polymer developed by DuPont, that combines the flexibility of rubber and the strength of thermoplastics.
UPPAbaby Vista V2 vs. Babyzen YOYO2 Configurations
The Vista V2 offers plenty of versatility: The seat of the stroller is removable and reversible, allowing you to keep a close eye on a parent-facing baby and allowing a toddler to face forward and see the world. It is also compatible with the included bassinet, as well as several infant car seats.
The Vista V2 can also become a double stroller so it has even more configurations with the addition of a second seat! See below for a look at what the Vista V2 can do as a double stroller.
If you're planning to use your stroller during baby's first months, the Babyzen YOYO2 offers a few options. You can purchase the car seat adapters and click in a compatible infant car seat, make it a double with the YOYO2 connect frame, or you can purchase one of two bassinets - the hard-bottomed YOYO Bassinet or the soft, foldable 0+ Newborn Pack.
UPPAbaby Vista V2 vs. Babyzen YOYO2 Bassinet
The UPPAbaby Vista V2 stroller is packaged in the same box as the bassinet, so you can't buy the stroller without getting the bassinet. The UPPAbaby bassinet is approved for overnight sleep.
As previously mentioned, Babyzen has two bassinet options for the YOYO2 - the hard-bottomed YOYO Bassinet or the soft, foldable 0+ Newborn Pack. Neither is approved for overnight sleep.
Bassinets aren't required for using the stroller with a newborn, but they are recommended for a few reasons.
A bassinet allows a baby to lie completely flat, rather than in a slightly upright position in the car seat, which allows for open airways and a better-supported head and neck. Bassinets are also more ventilated than car seats, which tend to make babies sweaty with their protective foam.
Plus, the UPPAbaby bassinet is approved for overnight sleeping, making it a handy accessory if you're traveling or frequently visiting the grandparents. The bassinet can also be paired with the UPPAbaby bassinet stand for use at your bedside—and as a bonus, the stand even converts into a laundry hamper later on.
UPPAbaby Vista V2 vs. Babyzen YOYO2 How to Fold
UPPAbaby Vista V2
The Vista V2 is one of the easiest strollers to fold, and stands when folded—offering convenience for both storage and for lifting the stroller into the car. Plus, the fabrics don't touch the ground when folded, preventing the stroller from getting dirty.
When the Vista V2 is folded, the exposed bumper bar is easy to grab for lifting the stroller. See how the Vista V2 folds in this video.
Folding the YOYO2 takes a bit of practice, but once you get the hang of it, you’ll be impressed with just how compact it becomes! To fold the YOYO2, first press the white buttons at the top of the frame to collapse the handlebar and canopy.
Then, find a red tab and black button located on the underside of the stroller. Press the button while pulling the tab, then grab the metal bar to allow the stroller to collapse and lock in place.

UPPAbaby Vista V2 vs. Babyzen YOYO2 Pros and Cons
So which stroller is better: the UPPAbaby Vista V2 or the Babyzen YOYO2? They’re so different, and really do work well in combination with each other, but if you had to choose one, what one? Let’s look at the benefits and drawbacks of each.
UPPAbaby Vista V2
If you prefer a stroller that will have the longevity (or at least the option) for two children, then the Vista V2 may be your best bet. The main drawbacks of the Vista V2 are its higher price tag and heavier weight.
