Review of the New and Improved 2012 UPPAbaby Vista

The 2012 UPPAbaby Vista released in February is a vast improvement from the 2011. Although the look of the stroller has not changed, the improved features are what makes it different from the 2011 Vista. Due to all the rave reviews, the 2012 UPPAbaby Vista is geared to be one of the top selling strollers of 2012.

A few details that this stroller does not come with but can be purchased separately are the parent tray, cup holder, child snack tray and car seat adapter.

So far I have not read any negative comments or reviews of the 2012 UPPAbaby Vista. I am sure some will come as with everything but overall this is a stroller that is justifiably highly rated. The only thing I will say is that the Vista is a bulky stroller it makes its presence known. If you are looking for a smaller travel system or stroller then this is not the one for you.
