Uppababy Mesa 2014 vs 2015 – What’s New?

Uppababy refreshed their crazy popular Mesa car seat for 2015! What’s new for the 2015 Uppababy Mesa?

We’ve compared them side-by-side and there are some significant updates we’d love to share with you.

We took these photo’s of the two seats alongside each other so that you can see the obvious difference between them, which is the softer fabric that adds a much cleaner look to the seat. (kind of like what Maxi Cosi did to the new Mico AP vs the older Mico model).

They’ve also added more color options to the Mesa 2015 lineup to coordinate with your 2015 Vista or Cruz strollers.

The most important update, however, is the weight. The 2015 Mesa lost almost 2 whole pounds from 2014! (Can’t say that I did:) The MESA is the only infant car seat on the market that uses SMARTSECURE™ System. This unique technology utilizes a tightness indicator and self-retracting mini LATCH connectors to facilitate quick, accurate, and easy installation. Uppababy claims that it takes just 10 seconds to install and they are right!

If you do own an Uppababy Stroller, then the Mesa is your best choice for an infant seat. It clicks right into your stroller frame with the need for any adapters and is easily removable with just one hand.



  1. Is the 2015 Mesa compatable with all vista models?

  2. The 2015 Mesa is compatible with all model Vista strollers. It will click directly in the 2015 Vista with no use of adapters and all Vista models prior to 2015 will require adapters. The Mesa no longer comes with adapters, you can get that directly from Uppababy.
