The UPPAbaby Vista strollers are one of the most versatile and durable strollers one could find in the marketplace.
Although it is relatively expensive, the Vista stroller has what it takes to have a safe and comfortable ride with your kids.
On the other hand, Britax car seats are some of the best you can find in the marketplace. Britax car seats have the necessary features needed to keep your baby safe either inside the car or on a stroller.
However, our focus in this short article is whether the Britax car seat is compatible with UPPAbaby Vista. Paring these two products would be one of the best car seats and stroller combinations parents could have for their kids.
Therefore, can you mount a Britax car seat on a UPPAbaby stroller? Let’s see!

Does The Britax Car Seat Fit In UPPAbaby Vista?
Even though the UPPAbaby Vista is a versatile stroller that can accommodate a few other brands of car seats, unfortunately, Britax car seats are not among the car seats you can use with UPPAbaby Vista strollers.
I’m not sure if UPPAbaby would make a special adapter for Britax car seats in the future, but there is none, for now, to use with the stroller. You may have to have a change of mind if you were planning to pair the two brands.
If you have either a Britax car seat or an Uppababy stroller, there are other pairing options you can explore.
However, if you are planning to buy a stroller and a car seat, we always recommend buying both from the same company. That way, you don’t have to bother about compatibility issues.
What Other Strollers Are Compatible With Britax Car Seats?
Since the UPPAbaby Vista stroller is not compatible with Britax car seats, there are other options to explore for your Britax car seat. Check them out below.
Baby Jogger Stroller
However, you need to buy a separate adapter to safely install a Britax car seat on a Baby Jogger Stroller. The City Mini 2 and City Mini GT2 use the same adapter (check here), while City Select and City Select Lux use the same adapter.
BOB Gear / Britax Stroller
B-Lively and B-Clever strollers are compatible with Britax B-Safe, B-Safe 35, and B-Safe 35 Elite. The adapters are included with the strollers.
The Donkey3 stroller is compatible with B-Safe with the help of an adapter that is sold separately.
Fox2 strollers are also compatible with B-Safe, B-Safe 35, and Endeavors. You also need to buy the adapter separately.
The Joovy Caboose Ultralight Graphite stroller is compatible with Britax B-Safe 35, B-Safe 35 Elite, Chaperone, and Romer BABY-SAFE. The adapter is included with the stroller.
You can also get the Joovy Twin Roo+ Car Seat Stroller frame to use with Britax B-Safe 35 and B-Safe 35 Elite. You need to get a separate adapter to connect the car seat.
Maxi Cosi Stroller
The Mocking stroller is compatible with Britax B-Safe 35 and B-Safe Ultra car seats. You need to buy the adapter separately for a safe and secure connection.
Thule Glide 2, Urban Glide 2 Single, and Urban Glide 2 Double strollers are compatible with a list of Britax/BOB car seats. The car seats include B-Safe, B-Safe 35, B-Safe 35 Elite, Chaperone, Unity, and Affinity Unity. The adapter is sold separately.
What Other Car Seats Are Compatible With UPPAbaby Vista Strollers?
If you own a UPPAbaby Vista stroller and are interested in using other brands of car seats on the stroller, the following are the car seats to buy.
Chicco car seat (KeyFit Series)
The infant car seats in this series include KeyFit, KeyFit 30, KeyFit 30 Magic, KeyFir 30 Zip, KeyFit 30 Zip Air, and Fit2
These Chicco KeyFit infant car seats are compatible with UPPAbaby Vista (2015 -2019) and UPPAbaby Vista V2. You can also use the Chicco KeyFit car seats on UPPAbaby Cruz and Cruz V2.
Here’s the adapter you would need to connect a Chicco car seat to UPPAbaby strollers.
At What Age Can I Use A Britax Car Seat On Strollers?
A car seat is meant to be used from birth. As a matter of fact, you need an infant car seat to transport your baby from the hospital back to your home.
Therefore, if you have a Britax car seat, you can start using it on a stroller as soon as possible. Nevertheless, using a stroller for a newborn is not the safest thing to do.
You might want to wait until your child reaches about 2 to 3 months old before walking with him/her in a stroller.
Do I Need A Base Or Adapter To Use Britax Car Seats On Strollers?
If you have a Britax car seat and a Britax stroller, your baby’s travel system is set already. You don’t need an adapter or car seat base to use a Britax car seat on a Britax stroller. They are designed to pair safely without any extra features.
However, if you are buying any of the other brands of strollers that are compatible with Britax car seats, you will need an adapter.
In most cases, you will need to buy the Britax car seat adapter separately to use the seat on other strollers. Although, a few brands of strollers include the adapter when buying the stroller.
Check with the brand of the stroller to know if you need to buy the adapter separately.
How Long Are Britax Car Seats Good For?
Britax car seats are good for use between six and ten years from the date of manufacture (DOM). Note that the time starts counting from the date the car seat was made and not from the day you purchased the seat.
You should always check the car seat to find out the exact date of manufacture and when to stop using the seat. This is because, over time, the materials used for the seat degrade and become unsafe for kids.
