Two of the most exciting releases for 2012 in top-of-the-line strollers are the redesigned UPPAbaby Vista and the new UPPAbaby Cruz. Both strollers have been extremely popular since their release, and we’re sure that the new updates have made them more appealing to moms and dads who are on the go.
We receive a lot of questions about the differences between the two models so we thought we’d take a few moments to explain what features the two designs have in common as well as where they differ.
In general, the UPPAbaby Cruz can be thought of as the UPPAbaby Vista’s little sibling. The Cruz is identical to the Vista in many aspects, but was designed to be a lightweight travel stroller that is a sturdier, more comfortable alternative to umbrella strollers.
For a full comparison of the features in the UPPAbaby Cruz and the UPPAbaby Vista, we’ve included the following lists:Similarities:• Can be used from birth through 50 pounds with infant insert
• Full-sized reversible seats are the same size in both models and allow Baby to look at you or take in the world• One-step folding system, so that you can close the stroller with just one step
• Oversized sun canopy with SPF 50 UV protection
• Adjustable canopy to give extra space to older children
• Telescoping handlebar to adjust to the height of the pusher
• Up to 180-degree seat recline
• Oversized storage basket
• Accessories include rain cover and sun cover
• The Vista comes with a bassinet, while both the Cruz and the Vista have optional car seat adapter accessory with styles available for Peg Perego, Chicco, Graco and Maxi-Cosi car seats
• Cruz is just 21″ wide, roughly 2.5″ narrower than the Vista, which makes it easier to fit through tight spaces
• Cruz has smaller wheels to make the design even more compact than the Vista, but the Cruz does feature a specialized suspension system, so that it rides more smoothly than umbrella strollers despite the decreased wheel size.
