Expert Review: Sleek, modern and utterly sophisticated, the 2012 VISTA includes a new adjustable height canopy, lay-flat fifth-position recline and fresh color combinations on the new carbon black frame. The canopy and mattress of the included bassinet have also been redesigned to allow for more ventilation. The best feature is the amazing canopy. Fully extended, it provides excellent coverage, but also includes an additional fold-out SPF 50 sunshade and a large, magnetic-closure peek-a-boo window (read: quiet). The combination of foam/rubber wheels and improved suspension provide a smooth ride and easy maneuvering for you. Folding, with or without the main seat attached, is one easy step, but the stroller can't fold with the Rumble Seat on –- a major drawback.

What We Love: Maneuvering; magnetic-closure peek-a-boo window; reversible elevated seat; superb canopy coverage; fold-out SPF 50 sunshade; vivid color selection; extendable handlebar; easy access to underseat storage; included rain shield and mesh bug net.

What We Wish It Had: Side carry handle for easier lifting when folded; ability to fold with Rumble Seat; reversible Rumble Seat; cup holder.

Great For: Easily switching between being a single and double stroller; parents that don't need to fold the stroller often; providing excellent sun protection.

Bottom Line: While its multi-feature canopy makes the VISTA ideal for sunny locales, the style and performance make it an excellent choice for any growing family. But its inability to fold with the second seat attached may be a deal-breaker for some.

Parent Rating:
"The look of the stroller is modern and sleek. I love the look!"

"The underseat storage is one of my favorite features. There is more then enough room to put all of the kid's and my stuff. It is so much bigger than other strollers I've used."

"I love the harness straps and the adjustable seat positions. The straps are so soft and easy to use!"

"One of my favorite features is the on/off brake pedal -- just one gentle click to lock the wheels."

"The way this stroller maneuvers with two kids in it is fantastic. It is lightweight and fits like a glove through all doorways."
