I would say that the Uppababy Vista V2 has been the most popular pram in Australia for a few years now (and featured in this years Best Prams Australia 2023 as well as Best Double Prams Australia 2023) and it is easy to see why.
Uppababy Vista V2 Key Features
- Aesthetically beautiful stroller with a wide range of on trend fabrics and styles
- Thoughtfully designed with every mechanism and feature easy to use.
- Comes with a full styles, luxury bassinet included (that can be used with the seat as a double)
Things to Consider
- In double mode the bassinet MUST be at the front/lower position.
- Second seat (Rumble Seat) is smaller with a lower weight limit.
- Can be quite pricey if purchasing for twins, because you’ll need to add on an extra seat and bassinet, plus upper and lower adapters.

It is aesthetically a beautiful pram, made from quality materials, and just one of the simplest and easiest prams to use. It has some small, but thoughtful features that makes it one of the most straight forward prams to use. For example the button to release the bassinet from the frame is on the handle at the top – which is exactly where it should be, and yet not a common feature.
The whole pram is like that; everything about it is just sleep-deprived-new-parent-friendly. It’s easy to fold, has a one handed recline in the seat, easy to adjust shoulder strap height, tap to engage/release foot brake, extendable sun canopy, huge storage basket – it’s all the things we love in a pram.
When you purchase the Uppababy Vista V2 it comes with the bassinet and the toddler seat, so you’re ready to go from birth through to toddlerhood. Then if and when you have another baby all you need to do to turn your Vista into a double pram is purchase the upper and lower adapters and you can connect both seats to the frame.
When your youngest baby outgrows the bassinet you will then need to purchase the “Rumble Seat”, which is a smaller second seat that attaches on to the front of the frame.
The only drawback with the Uppababy Vista is it does have limited configurations. The bassinet can only go on the front of the frame in double mode, and then the rumble seat also must go on the front of the stroller. Which means your younger child will sit at the front and your older child must sit at the top. I do know that is a drawback for some parents. Though not an uncommon configuration constraint for this style of in line double pram.
If you’re looking for a stroller with more configuration options, and two identical seats so you’re not limited to who can sit where, I’d recommend looking at the Baby Jogger city select 2. Though it doesn’t offer the same level of luxury design the select 2 is very practical, as both seats are approved for newborns (although worth noting it can’t accommodate two bassinets like the UPPAbaby Vista V2) For more information read our full UPPAbaby Vista V2 VS Baby Jogger city select 2 review.
Otherwise overall the UPPAbaby Vista V2 is the perfect pram for parents looking for a pram that is simple and easy to use, full of thoughtful features for new parents, is aesthetically beautiful and gives them to option to switch from single to double with their growing family.
