With its unique design and engineering, the MESA combines safety, simplicity, and now a lighter carrier. From easy installation to innovative safety features and a one-hand stroller release, MESA has taken the guesswork and hassle out of infant car seats.

MESA combines the safety, functionality, and ease of use parents and babies need to feel protected and reassured. 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.

With a keen eye for designing stylish and sleek products that combine features and functions new parents want?plus innovations they never knew were possible, the MESA works directly with the VISTA smart luxury stroller and the CRUZ stroller systems without the purchase of adapters. Additional MESA features include:

SIP ? Side Impact Protection integrated with a no-rethread harness that enables front adjustment access to facilitate easy and accurate harness position ? optimized for preemies.

Convenience ? A one-push stroller release on the carry handle makes stroller-to-car transfer smooth and easy.

Protection ? A hideaway SPF 50+ canopy protects infants from the sun, but when not in use hides away. The MESA also has integrated storage pockets for the infant restraint buckles to keep the metal parts cool when the seat is exposed to sun and within easy-reach for child restraint.

The MESA has an extremely low profile and slim base with a finished bottom to protect car upholstery and eliminates the need for seat protectors, which can compromise car seat installation and safety. The MESA comes in four fashions: DREW (tangerine), SEBBY (teal), LINDSEY (wheat), and JAKE (black).


  • SMARTSecure? system with 10-second accurate install

Easy to install
May 15, 2017
Latch and leveling system incorporated into the car seat made the installation extremely easy, as compared to a cheaper stroller / infant car seat set that we received as a gift and installed on the same day (also using the Latch system on another car). The materials used for this car seat are a lot more premium as compared to the other cheaper one that we installed on the same day, and this also feels a lot more sturdy in the car. I drove around with the car seat attached to the base (without baby, as I'm still 3 weeks out from my due date) and it was very secure and there was no rattling of any kind. No feedback yet on how it is to use with a baby since I'm still 3 weeks out, but so far it's looking very promising and I'm excited to make use of it.
  • Installation is a breeze, materials are premium and padding feels more than adequate

Great car seat!
May 10, 2017
I waited almost 1.5 months to get this carsest. It wasn't Albee baby's fault but so I don't blame them at all. Uppababy was delayed with the 2017 model so they had to manufacture mor of the 2016. I love this carsest for so many reasons. The cushion make me feel safe for my 6 lb baby. It's gorgeous and sleek and looks amazing. It's a durable product which I was afraid would be too heavy but it's not that bad. Easy to dock into the car and detach from the dock as well as attach to the uppababy Cruz stroller.

Very nicely made. I am using this for a 4 1/2 lb baby so it is important that he fits well in it. The material is soft and cushy. So far very happy with this purchase

this seat is amazing. my baby looks so comfortable in it and it's fit him well from the ride home from the hospital until now. all the padding and materials are top quality and easy on baby's skin. my only concern is that the baby will grow out of it fast. it's very easy to install with the seat base but additional bases are $100+ if you need to use the seat across multiple vehicles.
  • easy install, safe, top notch materials, stylish
  • pricey, pricey additional seat base, on the small side

Great if you have the matching stroller
December 12, 2016
We got this to match our Vista stroller. It's so easy to snap in and out of it with no adapters. Only downside is that it is not compatible with any other strollers, so we took a risk we'd never need to use it with another brand. Hopefully that's something that Uppababy fixes in the future.

Love how easy it comes out of base and drops right into the Vista stroller. The base is so easy to move from one car to the next. I wish the sun shield was bigger or had a SPF pull out like the Vista bassinet and stroller have.

Great car seat, love the UPPAbaby ecosystem, minor caveats
November 24, 2016
This car seat is great. It specifically thrives in two places: base installation and newborn head and body support. The base is extremely easy to install because it requires little to no strength to install it. I've pulled muscles on other car seat bases trying to pull those straps to get it tight. With this, all you do is plug it in and lean on the base and it automatically tightens it for you. I did find that the leveling in my BMW was a bit tricky, I couldn't quite get it level no matter what adjustment I used and I found that sometimes the front of the base would be forced upward instead of laying flat after tightening. But after a bit of trial and error I was able to get it to a good position.The newborn insert is amazing, really provides the support I was missing on the Britax car seats, especially since it is fully adjustable vertically.As far as the car seat installed on the base, I found that the front of the car seat does lift up slightly (due to the fact that the connection is made in the back of the base). I am nearly positive that is how it was designed and is perfectly safe, but I would have preferred it be unioned a bit more with the base. However, as soon as the baby is in the seat, it's a non-issue. Overall it is a great, beautiful car seat. Like I said I love the UPPAbaby ecosystem, their products are just great and this one is no exception.

Well designed, safe and easy to use!
August 26, 2016
We bought Uppababy's stroller+basinet+car seat for our first baby. First ever use was going to the hospital for his first visit after birth. We were relaxed using it in an Uber and it felt strong and stable, safe and easy. It was easy to assemble and looks very pretty (design and color). We love it!

Great carseat!
August 8, 2016
We have the UPPAbaby Cruz stroller, so this was the best option for our infant carseat. We really like it -- it's easy to use and provides good shades for the baby. We got the black to match the color of our car, but if you're going to use it in the summer, I would recommend getting one with lighter color.

Easy to Use
July 22, 2016
I've used this for about 5 months now and love it. The base is easy to hook up. It is idiot proof if you go by the indicators when setting it up. I just wish it was lighter but I understand that these were manufactured with safety in mind so it can't be super light.

Safe and sleek
July 11, 2016
We took the car seat to get the installation inspected by the highway patrol as well as by the nurse when we were discharged from the hospital. Both experts commented on what a great car seat this was. It's also really sleek looking compared to other car seats which is a nice bonus. It clicks in super easily into the Uppababy Vista stroller. I'm glad we got it because it's so easy to use with the stroller and our baby falls asleep in it every time!

Gorgeous Easy to Install
June 7, 2016
We bought this for our third child. For number 2 we had a Peg and can say the UPPAbaby has delivered. Adjusting the head pad height is easy and the install is a breeze. I have already swapped it between vehicles multiple times in less than 2 minutes. The Georgie color really pops and we have gotten lots of compliments on it.

Great Car Seat!
May 4, 2016
I was deciding between this carseat and Nuna, and went with this because we got the Cruz stroller and we wanted a matching travel system. This carseat is about half the weight of Britax and others we tried in store. The fabric is high quality and there is ample cushioning. I love how easy it was to install in my car with the level red/green indicators. It has a nice sized canopy as well. I love that this snaps so easily into Cruz!

I love the look and features of this seat. It's easy to install and has great safety ratings. It also pops directly onto the Uppababy Vista or Cruz- super convenient.

Perfect for my twins
February 6, 2016
We recently had twins and while searching for car seats I specifically needed one with low weight and height limits and low harness slots since it was a good bet they would be small/premature. I'm not a huge fan of the look of Chicco and Graco seats. The hideaway canopy is a great feature because it stays out of the way, however, it's quite small. It's noticeably heavier than my Maxi Cosi (2 lbs) but it was worth the trade off of knowing the seat would be a proper fit. It is quite large front to back in the base when installed but is narrow enough I have 2 side by side with a Clek Foonf. The infant insert worked fine but was at a strange angle that pushed their heads forward. An easy fix by turning their heads to the side but I was definitely ready to remove it at 8lbs. No rethread harness is super easy to adjust. Straps aren't too twisty. The tightening strap is easy to pull. The base was the easiest install yet. I love the single button to release the seat from the stroller and it works great with the adapters for our Baby Jogger City Select Stroller. The headwings help with keeping the babies in proper position. I would buy this seat again even with the high price point and have already recommended it to my friends.

Love this car seat.
July 7, 2015
I did my research and looked it many car seats and opted for this due to great reviews on safety. It's one of the best in the market. It's FAA approved so I can take it on flights. The base Is easy to install and so is the car seat without the base. It looks great and my baby is very comfortable in it. My baby was 5 pounds 11 ounces when we left the hospital so they attached a vitals monitor to him for an hour while sitting in this car seat to ensure it is safe for smaller/premie infants and indeed it is! I use it with the UPPA baby Cruz frame.

We got this car seat a couple weeks ago and we are so happy with it. We had to wait to get the 2015 version that has improvements such as softer fabric. We really like it and think it will be perfect for our little baby girl. A plus is that it looks so stylish and modern.
