Features of the UPPAbaby Vista 2018 Pushchair and Carrycot
UPPAbaby are well-known for their eye for detail and the new Vista 2018 Pushchair carries on that legacy. With brand new full-grain leather accents on all colours, including the adjustable handlebar and bumper bar, the Vista 2018 is the perfect addition to any growing family wanting a sleek, modern and stylish pushchair.
Plus, all accessories from the 2017 Vista are compatible with the new 2018 model!
What’s in the box?
The UPPAbaby Vista 2018 Pushchair includes:
- Chassis, basket and wheels
- Pushchair seat
- Carrycot storage bag
- Pushchair seat rain cover
- Pushchair seat mosquito net
- Carrycot mosquito net
- Leather bumper bar
The seat unit is plush and can easily be switched between forward and parent facing. It’s suitable from 6 months to 15kg (approximately 3 years) and has multiple recline positions that allow your little one to travel in comfort. This can be done with one hand, letting you always stay on the go. There is also a padded 5-point harness inside the seat unit to keep your little one secure and a height adjustable footrest to keep them comfortable, no matter how they prefer to travel.
If you’re wanting to convert your Vista 2018 into an inline double pushchair, with the use of Upper and Lower Adaptors, you can attach a second Rumble Seat. It’s perfect for pushing around two little ones and just as easy to manoeuvre as pushing one.
Underneath the seat unit you’ll find an extra-large storage basket that’s easy to access from all sides. It can hold up to 5kg worth of baby things and even includes two pockets for items you want to keep close to hand. For a little extra storage space, there’s also a zip-up storage pocket on the back of the seat unit.
Suitable for use from birth to 9kg, the UPPAbaby Vista 2018 Carrycot is now longer than before and provides a well-ventilated yet warm and cosy place for your little one to take a snooze in. The perforated base and aerated mattress encourage air to flow through the carrycot, for a perfect, cool snooze. With cushioned sides and a fluid resistant liner, the carrycot is ideal for messy newborns as it’s mattress cover and lining is machine washable.
The UPPAbaby Vista 2018 Pushchair and Carrycotis perfect for family life. The carrycot is suitable for overnight sleeping which is great if you’re away for the night or having a sleepover round Granny’s. There’s even the added bonus of being able to remove the carrycot using just one hand, letting you carry your other essentials easily.
If you’re wanting to use your Vista 2018 with more than one child, you have the ability to add on a second Carrycot. By using Upper and Lower Adaptors, it’s easy to pop both carrycots on and off as they both have a one-hand release.
If it’s comfort you are after, then the UPPAbaby Vista 2018 Pushchair for you and your little one. The lightweight frame keeps weight to a minimum letting you adventure anywhere. Whilst the lockable front swivel wheels and independent shock absorbing four-wheel suspension allow for a smooth ride across rougher terrain. The wheels are also ‘no puncture wheels’, which make sure that you’re never left stranded with a flat tyre!
The brake is a simple click-on, click-off brake. It is also colour indicated (green for go, red for stop) making it extremely user-friendly even when wearing flip-flops.
The fold of the UPPAbaby Vista 2018 Pushchair is simple and easy to do. Simply pop on the brake to stop the pushchair moving and pull up the handlebar to its highest position. To fold, pull up the two grey levers that can be found either side of the frame and push down. Plus, there’s even an auto-lock that clicks into place once the Vista has been folded.
UPPAbaby have a real eye for detail and they’ve even added two grey plastic nodules to keep the leather handle off of the floor. The pushchair can also be folded with or without the seat unit attached and has a standing fold, making it easy to get your little one sorted first.
The UPPAbaby Vista 2018 is renowned for its adaptability, flexibility and versatility. The combinations of carrycots, seat units and car seats that the Vista 2018 frame can take seem boundless. With the use of car seat adaptors, lower car seat adaptors, and upper and lower adaptors, you can quickly and easily swap between configurations. These modes include:
- Car Seat
- Two Car Seats
- Two Carrycots
- Seat Unit
- Two Seat Units
- Carrycot and Seat Unit
- Car Seat and Seat Unit
Plus, there’s also the option of adding on a PiggyBack to make the pushchair suitable for three.
Both the carrycot and seat unit have large extendable sun canopies with pop-out panels. These provide your little one with maximum UPF 50+ protection. At the back of the carrycot sun canopy you’ll find a panel that can be unzipped and pulled up to let air flow through the carrycot, which is particularly practical on a hot day. This has two positions, fully open (as pictured below) and half open. Both positions have magnetic points that will also hold the canopy in place.
The sun canopy on the seat unit is also height adjustable to provide additional headroom and lets you move it to match wherever the sun may be. There’s a silent magnetised peek-a-boo window in the top of the sun canopy too. This lets you take a sneak peek inside without waking them up.
The UPPAbaby Vista 2018 Pushchair and Carrycot is adaptable and versatile, the perfect pushchair for any growing family. The carrycot is suitable for use from birth and ideal for overnight sleeping when out and about. Whilst the reversible seat unit, no-puncture tyres and extendable sun canopy keeps your little one comfy and fully protected on any journey.
