Differences Between the Uppababy Vista (2019) and Vista V2.

Vista (2019) and Vista V2 Price.

The Vista 2019 version cost about £799 to £899 depending on where you buy it from and the colours you choose,  and for the Vista V2, it’s around £1069.

The price has increased a bit because of the different updates.

Vista (2019) and Vista V2 Canopy.

The canopy differs as well. For the Vista V2 2020 update, the canopy offers more protection against the sun. It has a zip extension that opens up a peek a boo window. Which it doesn’t with the 2019 update.

The 2020 Vista V2 has more fabrics in the front to provide ventilation. The 2019 version has a silver fabric extension in the front for sunshade

In most colours for the Vista (2019) you have a larger logo displayed on the side. While the former it’s a tiny leather logo attached on the side of the canopy.

It gives it a more sophisticated look.

Vista (2019) and Vista V2 Harness System.

For the new Vista V2, you only need to slide the harness up and down to fit it in. No re-thread or fixing. For the former, it takes a bit of time to strap your child in.

It takes more of your time.

Vista (2019) and Vista V2 Seat Unit.

The seats remain the same, except for the deeper footrest and higher seat. Your toddler will be able to relax even more with the new seat unit.

Vista seat back height went from 48.8cm up to 50.8cm. Not that much difference though. For the footrest, it went from 5.08cm deep to 6.35cm deep.

Vista (2019) and Vista V2 Wheels and Ride.

When it comes to the wheels and ride experience some improvements have been made. Vista V2 offers better suspension and a less bumpy ride

The tyres are more shock-absorbing when pushing through rough terrains. The wheels are softer and the newly designed spring action suspension makes it easier.

When pushing, the wheels give in and let the Vista glide better. You have green indicators near the wheels which signal if the wheels are locked or unlocked.

Vista (2019) and Vista V2 Basket.

The newer basket is sleekier and has a nice touch. It also has an additional pocket for your rain cover and bug shield. The size remains the same though.

Which One is Better?

Well, the Vista V2 is better than the former because of the minor updates here and there. These are not that major updates. Although they are beneficial for many families.

Better wheels and tyres, more colours and the no thread harness I will say are the most important ones. It’s pricey but you will get a slightly better stroller.

However, when it comes to quality design, fabrics and other major features it remains the same. Making the Vista (2019) still one of the best strollers out there.

It’s still praised and bought by many parents.


Their weight and prices are the biggest cons. Although the Vista is cheaper than Bugaboo strollers it’s still expensive and heavy as well.

They don’t really offer the most compact fold and can take up a bit of space. Other than these things there are no other major cons.

All the major features are included and even extra to make life easier.


So the time to decide has come and you are wondering what to do. Well, do you want your toddler to last longer in the seat? Are they tall? Do you want to spend less time placing your baby on the stroller?

If you want a less bumpy ride and a smooth afternoon stroll, then the Vista V2 is the one for you. Other than these few minor changes the Vista (2019) is actually good.

You save money and you can actually use the 2020 seat unit on its frame. That way you will save money and have the newly updated seat and canopy.

It’s about your lifestyle and what will benefit your child the most. I would love to know your choice. What is it?
