Best Stroller

As of March 2020


Usually coupons don’t work for this stroller – even at Buy Buy Baby or Bed Bath & Beyond. Sometimes, eBay has brand new strollers in certain colors on sale, so I’d check that before defaulting to Amazon.

what we like

  • The ability to transition from 1 baby/toddler to 2 for growing families
  • Maximum undercarriage space, especially if you live in a city & need all hands on deck for things such as groceries
  • Easy set up & break down
  • All-in-one package including car seat = one less decision to have to make
  • Comes in a variety of color options

keep in mind

  • The UPPABaby and Vista name/logo all over the stroller
  • Not “pretty” or sleek in appearance
  • Everybody & their mother has it


Like with all the baby items that I looked into, I was losing my mind researching all of the popular strollers as they all seemed to have so many of the exact same features. After a while, I simply tallied the number of people who recommended one versus another in each category. And with strollers, it was even easier because walking around NYC, I got to see which the majority of parents were pushing around. The Vista was the clear favorite – to the point where my husband & I would joke about it & roll our eyes at its basic-ness.


But it’s a basic staple because it truly delivers. The 2 main winning points with the Vista are the undercarriage space and the ability to transition it to a 2 baby/toddler stroller. My only gripe is the chic factor, or lack thereof – it’s not so chic. The silver rods with the logo words on it & the overall aesthetic didn’t strike my fancy, as vain as it sounds – it is a stroller, after all, and that’s not the focus. For durability & practicality at the same price point as its rival Bugaboo Fox, the UPPAbaby Vista is the top pick in this category.


Its rival, the Bugaboo Fox, is said to be the Mercedes Benz of strollers. And in its design & sleekness, it certainly is. But with Bugaboo, you get a much smaller undercarriage & if you do expand your family, you don’t have the ability to convert to a 2 baby/toddler stroller.


One last thing to note that the Vista has & the Fox lacks is that the Vista comes in a package that includes the bassinet, regular seat, AND car seat whereas the Fox requires you to purchase a separate car seat (and forces you to have to make yet another decision) – so again, more bang for your buck!

Sizing Tips & FAQs

Is there a big difference between the Vista V2 and previous versions?

There are a few differences, primarily in the seat. The Vista V2 is 1″ taller, and offers more configuration options including reversible so the baby can face you or away from you. There are also new color options and improvements to the wheel, etc. All in all, we don’t think the changes are material. If you like a particular color or want the newest stroller, you should buy the V2. Otherwise, this is a great way to pick up a previous model at a cheaper price!


There are so many inexpensive strollers around $100… can’t I just use one of those?

A cheap stroller is fine – it’s just that you’re not going to get the longevity/durability out of it. A lot of them are also really bulky and difficult to manage, and still require you to pay separately for a car seat. So instead of replacing it possibly more than once, just spend on it one time & if you get one that converts to a double that you’ll likely never have to replace.

Bugaboo Fox

I’ve talked about the Bugaboo a fair amount through this post. It is definitely the gold standard stroller, but has a smaller undercarriage that isn’t practical. Also, it does not give you an option to convert to a 2 baby stroller, which is tough to swallow at this price point. If you plan on using the stroller a lot and are in love with the Bugaboo, you will be very happy and won’t regret the decision. It’s just not my first pick for some of the reasons I stated.


Nuna DEMI Grow

The Nuna is great in that while it’s a double stroller, it’s still super sleek & fashion-forward. That’s the best part about it – the look wasn’t compromised for function. It’s still just as smooth & sturdy as the competitors, though it is heavier as a solo – because the frame is meant to be able to sustain 2 kids. Solo, it has the same amount of undercarriage space as the UPPAbaby, but once you double it, you lose a significant amount of undercarriage space, which you still have even after doubling the UPPAbaby. The Nuna is also less expensive than the UPPAbaby – $800 instead of $900+, but requires you to buy a car seat separately.
