Not built to last, expensive to maintain and unfortunately ours will likely become landfill
Used lightly for 2years, then stored for 2years. Back-wheel developed a flat spot and the pram developed an annoying wobble.
Front wheels cracked whilst inside the UPPAbaby travelbag on airplane.
Purchased in March 2016 for $999.
Do not purchase a pram from this company. By far they are one of the worst companies I have dealt with along with @babykingdom who we purchased the pram from initially and planned to use it for years to come (hence why they upsold us to the double pram).
We purchased the pram in 2018 and had 6 months of use before it failedBabyKingdom has had it since.
After 6 months of use of our $1500+ pram the brakes failed and frame had major issues. At one point the pram stated rolling towards the road with the brake on!
When I got in contact with @babyk...
Purchased in June 2018 at Baby Kingdom for $1,500.
Great functional pram for singletons
We love the functionality of this pram. It has a large shopping basket, quick fold and click to set up. The bassinet attachment and reversible seat with or without the infant insert is fantastic. Five point harness for safety, easy to adjust the straps as bub grows. Safety bar had some earlier safety recall issues, but the manufacturer resolved this with a neoprene sleeve. A skateboard attachment is available for a standing toddler and the pram can then be used for a smaller child, otherwise its the best pram for a singleton. The suspension and wheels are good for level ground, sholping centre smooth terrain. Not really ideal for community walking though.
Purchased in January 2019 at Baby & Toddler Town for $799.
Can not recommend this pram enough. It is super Easy to steer, and has a huge basket. Easy to collapse/use and is not too heavy. It has lasted me for years - and three babies.
Purchased in January 2014 at Bubs n Grubs for $750.
The best pram on the market, a great all rounder
I love this pram so much that I have two of them.
High push bar, large basket, smooth and easy to push even one-handed.
Folds up easily, fits into the boot of my small car with room to spare.
Faces in or out.
Comes with lots of add-ons (purchased separately), which makes it really functional no matter your situation.
The only issue that I had with mine was that the rear wheels wore down after a lot of use, but this was after several years. Spare wheels are easily ordered through Coolkidz in Australia.
Highly recommend this pram!
Such a great pram
Love this pram, super easy to push and move around in most terrain it could take a little more on suspension side and could be a little bit softer for the child but it is a great sized seat and fits them in comfortably with a great sized basket underneath.
Purchased in November 2015 at Baby Bunting for $749.

Great value for money
I have used it for two kids and it is still in perfect condition. It is really strong and light. It is easy for me to fold it compared to the other prams. Also like the piggyback attachment. I can still control the whole pram with one hand when both kids are on it.
Purchased in February 2014 for $600.
So strong and so much space.
My first thoughts when i saw this pram was: how will i fit this into my car? Its quite large even folded up.
But the payoff is a very comfy ride. Its very strong. It handles well on all terrain. And i can fit a weekly grocery shop in the storage compartment underneath!
Piggyback attachment is great!
The UPPAbaby Alta is a great pram that looks good, is very practical and isn’t too big. In particular, the Piggyback attachment we purchased recently is great! Our son now uses the bassinet and our daughter transitioned from sitting in the pram to riding on her “skate board” which is the piggy back attachment. She likes it enough not to run around the shopping centre.
Light and easy to manouevre
Very happy with it.
- excellent tight turning circle
-able to go through checkouts/narrow paths
-lightweight, and easy to fold/unfold and lift. We were initially going to buy a valco snap ultra but although the uppsbaby alta is a little heavier on specs it feels lighter to use due to great fold and maneuverability. Easy to assemble.
-good quality build
- adjustable handle height - the lowest setting works well for myself at 5'6" and my 6' husband
-puncture proof tyres are great - have had goats head prickles stuck in tyres with no issu...
It does the trick. Great turning circle. Lasts forever and strong construction. Looks good too. I couldn’t upgrade when I had the second child so that kind of sucked that I had to get another pram. It’s Skinny enough to fit through doors easily and super easy to push around.
Happy with our purchase
We bought the Carbon-black Jacob Uppababy Alta with matching bassinet. We loved that we could use this as a bassinet and a pram. Great for staying elsewhere overnight and for moving the bassinet around the house when needed. The bassinet only really lasted us until about 11 weeks, then he was too big. The pram comes with rain covers, fly screens and newborn inserts which have been great. Big basket, but unfortunately you can't access it when you're using the bassinet.
It's very easy to swap from bassinet to pram and to change the pram from fr...
In LOVE with this pram!
The best pram on the market by far!!! Couldn’t be happier with my Uppababy Alta! It’s light easy to manoeuvre, easy to fold (1 step), huge storage basket! Great quality product with a 3 year manufacturing warranty! Even better that it hold up to 23kg as my daughter is tall for her age and this helps a lot!
We have been using this pram for 7months now so had a good run with it, purchased the last of the 2015 models (Samantha, amethyst colored material) prior to new models released. We had an old chicco for baby 1, which we murdered through use, so wanted something better for bubs 2. Here's my review.
It's a reasonable pram. It does an ok job and will get us through to 2-3yrs when baby no longer needs a pram but a bit disappointed for the price. However I also didn't want to spend another $500 or more to get a more "designer"...
Lightweight Reversible Seat Pram
This pram is light enough, easy to fold/unfold and reversible (forward facing and parent facing). It has 5 seating position and reclines quite flat. With the snug seat, we could get away with not purchasing a bassinet. But due to the shape of the seat, your baby's legs will be at an angle when lying down. My baby didn't seem to mind though. Other features:
- Easy recline
- Easy to operate the brake
- Adjustable foot rest and handle
- Seat is quite high so you are at the same level with your child when sitting in restaurant
- Huge basket
Questions & Answers
Can I use an Alta bassinet on a 2020 model Cruz?
Hi, if I have an Alta bassinet (2015/16 model), can I buy a Vista double pram and use it with the Alta bassinet for one of my bubs? Do I need any particular model of Vista? Thanks
Does anyone know where do I buy the replacement wheels for the Alta uppababy please? Many thanks
I think the Alta is also called the Cruz. Try this website.
