The Main Differences Between the Nuna Tavo vs Mixx
There are only a handful of differences between these two models. Some may be more important than others for your particular needs.
- The Tavo weighs 24.3 pounds whereas the Mixx weighs 26.8 pounds. Not a huge difference, for most, but if you have to carry your stroller up and down a few flights of stairs that 2-pound difference may be the deal-breaker.
- The Tavo seat can only face forward, which isn’t ideal if you have a newborn or very young baby. The Mixx can be either forward or rear-facing.
- The Tavo has four recline positions while the Mixx has five. Again, not a huge difference but something you should know.
Features of the Nuna Tavo
- Front and rear wheel suspension
- Four-position recline with the true flat position.
- Car seat compatible with no adapters required.
- UPF 50+ canopy with multiple windows
- Quick and easy fold lock trolley function
The Tavo seat is not reversible and can only be used forward-facing. As I said, this isn’t ideal if you have a newborn since as you won’t be able keep your eyes on them all the time.
It has a four-position seat that offers a true flat reclining position. It also comes with adjustable calf support to keep your little nappers comfortable.
The seat does have an insert that can be removed to reveal a mesh back. This is great for those hot summer months as it provides your child with ventilation to help them keep cool and comfortable while in the stroller.
The seat is also spacious, allowing plenty of space for your little one from newborn through to toddlerhood.
Car Seat Options
The Tavo can be connected directly with the Nuna PIPA series car seats without any adapters required. All it needs is a simple click and you’re ready to go.
The Tavo comes with an oversized sky smart UPF 50+ canopy that provides complete coverage and multiple windows to check on your little one.
It has a three and five-point slide height-adjustable harness that features a quick-release button. The removable armbar fits children of all sizes for that added safety feature.
Size and Weight
The Tavo weighs around 24.3 pounds, not including the canopy or armbar. It has a recommended user weight up to 50 pounds.
Its dimensions are:
- Folded: 18.5 H x 22 W x 36.8 L inches
- Unfolded: 42.5 H x 22 W x 35.6 L inches
The Nuna Tavo is available in just two color options: granite and caviar. Both colors are beautiful. Although, I think the caviar color will be more hardwearing in the long run.
Both color options also come with a luxe leatherette accented and height-adjustable handle for easy and comfortable pushing no matter what your height.
- Adjustable height handlebar
- Easy fold
- No adapters required to connect a car seat
- Comes with a large under-seat storage basket
- Better suspension on its front wheels leading to a smoother ride for your baby.
- The seat can only face forward meaning if you have a very young baby you can not keep your eyes on them the entire time.
- No cup holder
- The car seat is placed over the stroller seat, adding to the weight of the stroller.
- The seat fabric is not tailored to the back of the seat, and this causes the fabric to bunch up.
- Does not come with rain cover this needs to be bought separately.

Features of the Nuna Mixx
- Forward or parent facing seating options
- Five-position recline with true flat position
- Adjustable handlebar
- All-wheel suspension
- UPF 50+ canopy
- Quick-release seat buckle
The seat on the Mixx can be used either forward facing or parent facing depending on the age and preference of your child. It has a five-position recline on the seat which also includes a true flat position and it comes with adjustable calf support and integrated footrest for a super comfortable ride.
It comes with an all-season seat to keep your baby warm and snug in the winter. It can easily be converted to mesh during those warmer months. It comes with rain covers and seat apron for optimal all-season protection for your baby.
The Mixx also comes with the option of using a bassinet that can be purchase separately
Car Seat Options
The Mixx comes with a ring adapter in order to attach a car seat. It has an easy on/off one-click system that converts your stroller into a travel system.
You would remove the seat meaning that the stroller is lighter than if you had to use the seat for the car seat as you do with the Nuna Tavo.
The Mixx comes with a five-point harness that can be converted to a three-point harness as your little one grows. Your child will remain comfortable in the stroller as they grow.
Size and Weight
The Mixx weighs around 27 pounds but this does not include the winter seat or armbar. It has a recommended user weight from both to 50 pounds and a maximum height of 45 inches.
Its dimensions are:
- Folded: 18 H x 23.5 W x 34 L inches
- Unfolded: 44 H x 23.5 W x 37 L inches
The Mixx comes in several color options: birch, caviar, granite, and oxford. The granite and oxford colors are very similar. Again, I feel that the granite would offer the durability that you will need for your stroller’s continued use.
- Reversible seat so your baby can be forward or rear-facing depending on their age and preference.
- Cup holder which is always handy for parents
- The stroller seat is removable to add a car seat or bassinet
- Comes with a large two-compartment storage basket.
- Requires adapter to fit car seat although it is then a one-click system.
- No front suspension
- The stroller weighs a few pounds more than the Tavo.
- Has several color options available.

The Final Verdict
As with any baby product, the choice you make is very much going to depend on your family’s personal circumstances. Both of these strollers are extremely well-made and have fantastic reviews.
In fact, there are very few differences between them which is what may make your choice very difficult. If you’re looking for a lightweight stroller, Tavo is going to be the one for you. Although, it’s only a few pounds lighter than the Mixx.
If you want a stroller that offers both forward and parent facing seat options and has the option of adding a bassinet, the Nuna Mixx is going to be the best choice for you.
