UPPAbaby Vista vs Bugaboo Cameleon Strollers – A Side-By-Side Comparison

Updated on December 13, 2012

UPPAbaby vs Bugaboo? Here is a side-by-side comparison to help settle the UPPAbaby vs Bugaboo debate. We will look specifically at the UPPAbaby Vista versus the Bugaboo Cameleon to help distinguish between the two performance strollers.

Cost: Bugaboo Cameleon Stroller - $979. UPPAbaby Vista Stroller - $679

Weight: UPPAbaby Vista: 24 pounds Bugaboo Cameleon 20 pounds. While the Bugaboo is 4 pounds lighter, many parents claim the 4 additional pounds of the Vista is not really an issue.

Capacity: UPPAbaby – ages birth to 50 pounds. Bugaboo – 37.5 pounds.

Folding: The UPPAbaby gives you easy one-step fold-with or without the seat attached. Parents love the fact that you can fold the UPPAbaby with the stroller seat on (unlike Bugaboo).

The modular fold of the Bugaboo Cameleon collapses the stroller easily into two lightweight pieces to fit a trunk or closet. Some parents have expressed concerns over the two-step breakdown if you will be in and out of the subway or getting the stroller in and out of the car/cab frequently.

Seat position: Both the Bugaboo Cameleon and the UPPAbaby Vista offer a reversible seat and a 3 position tilting seat.

Height Adjustment: The Cameleon has a reversible handlebar for city and woods and is height adjustable. The Vista offers a one-button telescopic handle-height adjustment, making the stroller great for taller parents.

Wheels/Tires: The UPPAbaby Vista features rubber-coated chrome finish tires that never go flat and high performance extra wide aluminum spoke wheels. Put the foam-filled, 6-inch swivel wheels on the Bugaboo forward for easy one-handed 360 turns. Or simply reverse the handlebar to go with the tread covered, foam-filled, 12-inch wheels forward and master hiking trails, gravel paths, and other rough roads. The Bugaboo Cameleon also switches easily from four wheels to two so that you glide over sand or snow.

Suspension: The UPPAbaby offers 4-wheel shock absorbing suspension. The Cameleon also offers adjustable suspension.

Frame: The Elevated seat/bassinet height on the UPPAbaby brings you closer to your child. The Vista also features a welded and formed aircraft aluminum alloy frame and a floating arch "no kick" rear axle. This allows plenty of space for your feet when walking, so you don’t end up kicking the stroller when walking. With the bugaboo you can tuck the handlebar beneath the chassis so that your child can enjoy a seat at the table.

Optional adapters: With the UPPAbaby optional adapters are available for infant seats for Graco, Peg Perego and Chicco.

Cleaning: The Cameleon base and tailored fabrics are durable, comfortable, easily removable and withstand many machine washes. The UPPAbaby also uses removable and machine washable fabric.

Converting to a Double Stroller: The optional RumbleSeat for the UPPAbaby converts a single stroller to a double in-line stroller in seconds, up to 35 pounds.

Material: The UPPAbaby bassinet is fully lined with organic soybean fiber and cotton.

Additional features: The UPPAbaby also features full-size easy-access basket and convenient cell phone pocket as well as a pop-out SPF 50 canopy extension. The Camelon’s rain cover allows your child to watch the rain without ever getting wet with the clear rain cover. Easy on and off, it folds and stores in the underseat bag so you're always ready for a rainy day. You also have the option to move your child from chassis to nursery without disturbing naptime.

Customer Service: The general consensus seems to be that UPPAbaby offers superior customer service compared to the Bugaboo.

Hopefully these side-by-side comparisons help you answer the UPPABaby vs Bugaboo debate for yourself. With the great deals on strollers online, now is the perfect time to purchase the stroller you've been wanting for so long!

On a related note. Bugaboo has chosen to call their stroller the Bugaboo Cameleon though you will find many reviews that reference the Bugaboo Chameleon. This is probably just a spelling error (Cameleon vs Chameleon).
