Both are stylish, high-quality strollers of a similar weight and size, with a reversible seat, simple fold, sturdy wheels with all-wheel suspension, and easy compatibility with an infant car seat or bassinet.
But on the other hand, the VISTA and MIXX comparison is a bit apples-to-oranges: While the MIXX is a single stroller, the VISTA is a convertible stroller that can expand from a single to a double.
(The more similar comparisons? Check out this comparison of two convertible strollers, UPPAbaby VISTA V2 vs. Nuna Demi Grow, or this comparison of two single strollers, UPPAbaby CRUZ V2 vs. Nuna MIXX Next.)
Still, there are strong arguments to be made for either stroller, regardless of whether you're planning to stroll with two kids someday.
UPPAbaby VISTA vs. Nuna MIXX Comparison
Watch below for a video comparison of the UPPAbaby VISTA and Nuna MIXX. While this video depicts models that have since been updated, most features of the two strollers remain the same.
Learn about the most recent updates to both strollers in these comparisons:
UPPAbaby VISTA V2
The UPPAbaby VISTA V2 makes it easy to stroll with your family, no matter how many kids are along for the ride. Sold as a single stroller with an included bassinet, the VISTA can convert into a double stroller with the purchase of a second seat later on. Add a ride-along board accessory, and the VISTA can even accommodate three children.
On top of its versatility, the VISTA offers a number of winning features like a standing fold, an extra-large storage basket, and compatibility with UPPAbaby's MESA car seat, which clicks on the stroller without adapters and can be removed with one hand.
In 2020, UPPAbaby released the VISTA V2, featuring upgraded suspension for better maneuverability, a redesigned sun canopy, new colors and more. UPPAbaby did not change the VISTA V2 in 2021 or 2022.
Nuna MIXX Next
The Nuna MIXX is the Dutch manufacturer's most popular stroller, featuring sturdy all-terrain wheels, an oversized canopy, an easy fold and premium fabrics paired with a chic matte black frame.
The MIXX is newborn-ready when you recline the stroller seat to its true-flat position, add a bassinet sold separately, or connect a Nuna PIPA series car seat known for innovative safety and style.
Updated in early 2021, the MIXX Next model features a more compact, standing fold; improved suspension, and a new magnetic harness buckle.
See this Nuna MIXX Next vs. MIXX comparison for more details on the differences between models.
UPPAbaby VISTA V2 vs. Nuna MIXX Next Price
At face value, the UPPAbaby VISTA costs $200 more than the Nuna MIXX Next. However, the VISTA includes the bassinet in the same box as the stroller. For the MIXX Next, the bassinet is sold separately for $350, which includes a stand.
If you're planning to have multiple children, you could argue that the VISTA saves you money in the long run: The $200 difference, plus the $220 for the VISTA's second seat, is likely less than you'd spend on a separate double stroller later.
The VISTA also includes more accessories than the MIXX Next. The purchase of a VISTA includes the stroller with one toddler seat, bassinet, a rain cover for the stroller, bug covers for the stroller and bassinet, and a bassinet storage bag.
Included with the MIXX and MIXX Next: the stroller with toddler seat and the car seat adapter for the Nuna series of car seats.

UPPAbaby VISTA V2 vs. Nuna MIXX Next Configurations
The seats on the UPPAbaby VISTA V2 and Nuna MIXX Next are removable and reversible, allowing your child to face you when she's younger and face forward to explore the world as she grows. Both strollers can also be used with an infant car seat and bassinet (see next sections for more details).
Of course, the VISTA offers more positions than the MIXX Next, as it can convert into a double stroller with a number of configurations involving the stroller seats, infant car seat and bassinet. See the double configurations for the VISTA below.
The photos below shows the MIXX Next configurations.
UPPAbaby VISTA V2 vs. Nuna MIXX Next Bassinet
The VISTA bassinet is included with your stroller purchase, while the MIXX bassinet is available separately for $350
A bassinet allows your baby to lie flat on her back rather in her slightly-curved positioning in an infant car seat. Both the VISTA and MIXX bassinets are well-ventilated with mesh panels, which allow for more air flow than the hot, protective foam of a car seat, and keep baby completely shaded from the sun. The MIXX bassinet includes Nuna's signature Sky Drape, a magnetized cover, while the UPPAbaby bassinet includes a UPF 50+ visor that extends from the canopy.
Both bassinets have a hard bottom that allow them to be placed anywhere, making them convenient to bring along for a restaurant nap or an overnight at a hotel.
Both Nuna and UPPAbaby also offer a bassinet stand, which many parents use to create baby's first crib at their bedside. And both stands still come in handy after the baby outgrows the bassinet around 6 months. The Nuna MIXX stand (included in the $350 bassinet price) can also be used with the stroller seat as a portable high chair, while the UPPAbaby bassinet stand (purchased separately for $149.95) can be paired with a fabric insert for its next life as a laundry hamper.
Both bassinets can be used until approximately 6 months, depending mostly on the height of the baby. The MIXX bassinet might buy your baby a bit more time in the bassinet, as it's four inches longer than the VISTA bassinet.
- VISTA: 25"H x 17"W x 31"L
- MIXX: 24.5"H x 16.5"W x 35"L
Bassinet Height and Weight Limit
- VISTA: 20 pounds or until baby can push up on hands and knees (whichever comes first)
- MIXX: 17 pounds or 27"
UPPAbaby VISTA V2 vs. Nuna MIXX Next Fold
The UPPAbaby VISTA V2 and Nuna MIXX Next are among the easiest strollers to fold, and both stand when folded—offering convenience for both storage and for lifting the stroller into the car. Plus, the fabrics don't touch the ground when either model is folded, preventing the stroller from getting dirty.
When the VISTA is folded, the exposed bumper bar is easy to grab for lifting the stroller. See how the VISTA V2 folds in this video.
Most strollers, including the VISTA V2, require the seat to be forward-facing to be folded, but the MIXX Next is a rare stroller that can be folded with the seat facing either direction.
The MIXX Next folds to a flat position and can be rotated to a standing position for lifting or trolleyed like a suitcase for carrying. See how to fold the Nuna MIXX Next in this video.
Car Seats Compatible with UPPAbaby VISTA V2 vs. Nuna MIXX Next
Wish you could mix and match brands? It's possible to use a Nuna car seat on an UPPAbaby stroller, but not vice versa. Check out our comparison of the Nuna PIPA Series vs. UPPAbaby MESA if you're deciding between these two car seats for the VISTA.
While UPPAbaby produces its own car seat, the UPPAbaby MESA, the VISTA is also compatible with several other brands if you use an adapter (sold separately for $40-$50) to connect the car seat and stroller.
The MESA connects without adapters and is easily removed from the stroller with the press of a button on the car seat handle.
- UPPAbaby MESA (no adapters required)
- Chicco KeyFit and KeyFit30
- Clek Liing
- Cybex Aton series and Cloud Q
- Maxi-Cosi Mico Max 30, Mico AP, Mico NXT, Mico, Citi, Cabrio and CabrioFix

Nuna's infant car seats: the Nuna PIPA, PIPA RX, PIPA Lite, PIPA Lite R, PIPA Lite LX, PIPA Lite RX, and the PIPA urbn all pair with the MIXX Next using included adapters. Only these Nuna car seats fit the MIXX Next series strollers.
See our Nuna PIPA series comparison to learn about the differences between all of the models.
The MIXX and MIXX Next come with Nuna's unique ring adapter, which makes the car seat faster and easier to snap in and out of the stroller using only one hand.

Parents planning for multiple children close in age often invest in the VISTA so that they can avoid purchasing a costly double stroller later. Plus, families love the VISTA's oversized storage basket, standing fold, and adapter-free car seat compatibility with the UPPAbaby MESA.
But no expecting parents can predict the timing of future children—and many feel like they need to survive the experience of having one before they can plan for another. (And besides, strollers from high-quality brands like Nuna and UPPAbaby have good resale value if you need to trade up for a double).
The Nuna MIXX is a popular choice for families seeking a stylish, well-rounded stroller that's $200 less than the VISTA and compatible with Nuna's best-selling car seats.
