UPPAbaby Vista 2012 vs Cruz Comparison Video (and Chart!)

We have long been a fan of the UPPAbaby Vista since it’s debut more than four years ago. At the end of 2011, UPPAbaby debuted its long await Cruz stroller which got us (and probably you!) thinking. Now which one is right for me? What exactly is different between the two? Is it just the bassinet difference or is there more? Not to worry because we got to the bottom of it and answered all your questions in our Baby Gizmo UPPAbaby Vista 2012 vs. Cruz Comparison Video. And if that’s not enough, we made you a handy chart too!  I know, I know…above and beyond is the name of our game! :)

    I love your review on both strollers. I just have one question, your chart says the bumper bar is sold separately with the Cruz. Where do you get the bumper bar? And where does it connect?

  2. Annick says:

    Hi Holly
    Does the uppababy vista buggy board work on the cruz?

    thanks :)

  3. hollieschultz says:

    Yes, I believe the UPPA board does work on the Cruz.

  4. Mother of 6 says:

    I was in the store yesterday and the saleslady could not get the UPPA BABY VISTA buggy board to attach to the CRUZ, any ideas why?

  5. Does the CRUZ fit in the Vista travel bag? Because I haven’t been able to find the travel bag for the CRUZ, but I have for the Vista

  6. Couple questions:
    Can the Cruz have the possibility to add another seat? If so, can the child sit facing forward, or is it only backward?
    Also, I see that the Cruz does not come with a bassinet, but is it compatible for one?

  7. Allison says:

    I have the Vista and found out that the Uppa board are model specific. They have separate ones for Cruz and Vista.

  8. Olivia says:

    I’m thinking about buying a Cruz for upcoming baby. My sister has the Vista. My question is: Does the Vista bassinet fit on the Cruz or do I need to buy the Cruz bassinet?
