The popular UPPAbaby VISTA and VISTA V2 strollers are compatible with a number of infant car seats from both UPPAbaby and other brands to create a convenient travel system.
The UPPAbaby MESA car seat attaches directly to the VISTA without the use of an adapter and can be removed easily by pressing a button on the top of the car seat handle.
The UPPAbaby VISTA is also compatible with car seats from brands like Nuna, Cybex, Maxi-Cosi, Clek, Peg-Perego and Chicco using an adapter.
Some parents choose a different manufacturer's car seat for reasons of safety, budget, style or the seat's compatibility with other types of strollers. With a few exceptions, the MESA works only with UPPAbaby strollers.
Using another brand's infant car seat with the UPPAbaby VISTA requires a car seat adapter. Adapters aren't necessarily more difficult to use and can fold with the stroller, but you will have to purchase one for $40-$50 and be sure to have it with you whenever you're using the car seat on the stroller.
The UPPAbaby VISTA and VISTA V2 from model years 2015-present is compatible with these infant car seats.
VISTA strollers from 2014-earlier are not compatible with these adapters.
If your car seat is not listed here, it is not compatible with the 2015-present UPPAbaby VISTA.
See an overview of how each car seat fits the UPPAbaby VISTA single and double strollers in the video below.
The UPPAbaby VISTA from 2014-earlier is compatible with any model year of the UPPAbaby MESA infant car seat using adapters that can be purchased only from UPPAbaby.
UPPAbaby has discontinued 2014-earlier car seat adapters for other car seat models, so these adapters can likely be found only on the used market.
If you're using a car seat on the VISTA when it's configured as a double stroller, you'll also need the upper adapter for all double configurations, and you may also need the lower adapter if using a car seat on the lower position.
