Are you looking for a car seat that’s compatible with Uppababy Vista or Visa V2? 

The Uppababy Vista V2 Stroller is popular and highly regarded for its versatility and top-notch construction. What’s even better is that you’re not limited to using only the Uppababy Mesa car seat with the UPPAbaby Vista strollers.

The UPPAbaby VISTA V2 is compatible with car seats from several trusted brands like Nuna, Maxi-Cosi, Clek, Peg-Perego, and Chicco using an adapter made by UPPAbaby or the car seat brand.  

Important Notice: Keep in mind that these car seats and adapters are compatible with the UPPAbaby Vista and Vista V2 only and won’t work with VISTA strollers from 2014 and earlier.

If you own a UPPAbaby MESA car seat, including the MESA V2 and MESA Max models, you’ll be glad to know that they can attach directly to the VISTA V2 stroller without the need for an adapter.

Chicco KeyFit 35, KeyFit 30, KeyFit 30 Zip, KeyFit 30 Zip Air (Adapter Required)

The Chicco Keyfit car seat series is compatible with Uppababy VISTA V2 but with only an adapter made.

Keyfits is a popular car seat that has received a lot of good reviews when it comes to safety, comfort, and convenience. 

In fact, we have tested and reviewed the Keyfit 30 and Keyfit 35 and based on our firsthand experience, these car seats have proven to be a reliable choice for parents looking for infant car seats. 

Just to add, Chicco KeyFit car seats can be compatible with strollers from other brands as well, including Mockingbird strollers when using the right adapter.

Chicco Fit2, Fit2 Air (Adapter Required)

From the Chicco car seat line, the Fit2 and Fit2 Air are two additional models that are compatible with the Uppababy Vista V2 stroller. 

One of the unique features of the Chicco Fit2 is its two-stage design that allows rear-facing longer than regular infant car seats. Being in a rear-facing position provides better protection for a newborn’s head, neck, and spine in the event of a crash.

In the first stage, the Chicco Fit2 provides more support to an infant’s developing body. As the baby grows, the seat can be adjusted to a toddler stage which has a more upright position.

The Fit2 Air is basically a regular Fit2 with premium Italian fabric and 3D AirMesh for breathability.

Clek Liing and Liingo (Adapter required)

If you are a Clek fan (like we are) and have a Clek Liing or Liingo, you can integrate it with the Uppababy Vista V2 stroller, creating a convenient travel system for their little ones.

Just to clarify, the Clek Liingo is basically the Clek Liing but without the base. It has all the same safety features and functions as the Liing, but it’s made to be installed using just the seat belt in your vehicle, no base is required.

This feature is super handy if you like to switch between cars a lot or want a car seat that’s easy to carry around.

The best part? Liingo weighs 9 lbs only making it even more convenient for your on-the-go lifestyle.

Peg-Perego Primo Viaggio 4-35, 4-35 Nido, and 4-35 Lounge (with adapters)

Peg-Perego Primo car seats look and feel fancy and when paired with an Uppababy VISTA V2, you will have a functional and stylish travel system. Luckily Peg Perego makes their own adapter to fit the UPPAbaby Vista stroller. 

When designing their car seats, Peg-Perego is a brand that pays attention to details. From the stitching to the finishes, every aspect of the Primo Viaggio is carefully considered to make sure the seat has a sleek and polished look.

While Peg-Peregos are pricier than some other infant carriers, they do offer premium quality. The Peg Perego Primo Viaggio 4-35 for example is made using top-notch materials, an upscale and sturdy shell, comfortable padding, and ventilated fabric. 

And it’s not just about looks – they also focus on functionality and safety. All Primo Viaggio models are easy to install, super-friendly to adjust, and lightweight to carry.

Maxi-Cosi Mico 30, Mico Luxe (Adapter required)

Maxi Cosi Mico is another car seat choice for the Uppababy Vista. Parents who choose either the Maxi Cosi Mico or Mico Luxe can seamlessly connect the car seat to the Vista V2 using this compatible adapter

Maxi Cosi Mico 30 is also compatible with other stroller brands like the one from Maxi-Cosi (obviously), Cybex, Nuna, Silver Cross, and Quinny.

The Mico 30 is often compared to the popular Chicco Keyfit 30 as they have similar features such as weight limits, dimensions, ease of use, and price. 

While it may not be as loved as the Chicco Keyfit 30, this car seat gets the job done by keeping your little one safe and works perfectly fine with the Uppababy Vista.

Nuna Pipa car seats are super easy to attach to the UPPAbaby Vista stroller using Nuna’s adapter. You can do it with just one hand. Also, the UPPAbaby has an adapter for the Nuna Pipa, but personally, we like Nuna’s adapter better.

Nuna PIPA models not only provide excellent protection to newborns and toddlers but are also known for being lightweight and compact. The Nuna Pipa premium design makes them easy to tote around. 

And if you drive a small car, you’ll love how the Nuna Pipa car seat fits in with ease. It’s compact and doesn’t take up much space. 

The Nuna Pipa car seat can be a bit pricey. But it definitely falls into the “you get what you pay for” category. You are paying for top-notch quality, awesome safety features, and a sleek design.
