UPPAbaby Vista vs. Baby Jogger City Select Lux

Seating Options

The UPPAbaby Vista and Baby Jogger City Select Lux can both be purchased and used as a single stroller (Vista, Lux), with the option to accommodate a second seat in the future. And both strollers can be purchased with two seats (Vista, Lux). They are both modular strollers, which means you can move the seats so they are both front-facing, rear-facing, or so they are facing each other. Both strollers offer adapters to accommodate a variety of car seats, but the Baby Jogger City Select Lux is compatible with a longer list of car seats than the UPPAbaby Vista. To find out if these strollers are compatible with your favorite car seat, visit our website for a complete list (Vista, Lux). One of the best features of the Baby Jogger City Select Lux is that both seats can be used in either position, front or back, and adaptors are included when you purchase a second seat. When you purchase the rumble seat for the UPPAbaby Vista, it also includes adapters, but you might want to buy an additional set of adapters if you want to use a non-standard standard seating configuration (with the toddler seat in the upper position and the rumble seat below). Because the frame of the UPPAbaby Vista stroller is smaller and more compact than the frame of the Baby Jogger City Select Lux, you will need two adaptors to create enough extra space for other configurations. The UPPAbaby Vista is a wonderful stroller for children of all ages! It includes a bassinet (which is perfect for newborns), you can purchase a second rumble seat, and you can also purchase the piggyback glider board for older children to stand on! A similar glider board accessory can be purchased for the Baby Jogger City Select Lux, and you also have the option to add a bench seat so your older child can stand or sit down. Both strollers have adjustable footrests and seats that recline.

Other Features

Both strollers have a peek-a-boo window with a magnetic closure, so you can quickly and covertly peek at your baby when you are on-the-go. The storage basket on the UPPAbaby Vista is slightly larger than the basket on the City Select Lux, but both baskets are large enough to hold all of the essentials...and more! The Baby Jogger City Select Lux folds easily with both seats attached. However, it does not stand when folded. The UPPAbaby Vista can be folded with the toddler seat, rumble seat, and piggyback accessory, and it can stand when folded to avoid getting it dirty. Speaking of dirt, the front wheels on both strollers can lock, which is very useful when you're on rough terrain and need more stability. Both have telescopic handlebars to accommodate parents of different heights, and on the Lux you'll find the brake (which is also a decelerating brake) on the handlebar. The UPPAbaby Vista has a foot brake and also includes a removable belly bar on the toddler seat. The City Select Lux does not include a belly bar, but you can purchase a child tray for both toddler seats!

Weight Capacity

On the Baby Jogger City Select Lux, both seats have the same weight capacity and can carry a child who weighs up to 45 pounds. On the UPPAbaby Vista, the toddler seat has a weight capacity of 50 pounds and the rumble seat has a weight capacity of 35 pounds.


The UPPAbaby Vista starts at $839 and ranges in price depending on the color. The Baby Jogger City Select Lux retails at $629. And don't forget that Baby Cubby price matches, so if you see a better price somewhere else, make sure to let us know!
