Which One is Better?
The Bugaboo Fox 2 seem to be better than the Nuna Mixx Next. Although it’s up to 17kg, more expensive and the stroller lack a legrest.
Other than these Fox 2 scores high with the other features. It’s lighter, has a better canopy, carrycot, it’s suitable with more car seats, etc.
Just by viewing above you can see that the Fox 2 is way better. The two-mode drive system makes it also very wanted. The buggy is one of few that has this feature.
Made to accommodate many families. The compact fold and free-standing fold makes it also stand out. Parents look for this when buying strollers.
Nuna Mixx Next is still a good stroller in the market with very quality fabrics and materials. The stroller is famous for that. If you want a cheaper option the stroller will do.
However, in this comparison, Bugaboo Fox 2 is the winner.
The first con both share is the price. Very expensive even for single strollers. They are also heavy, but better than many standard buggies.
Both are only for single babies and cant be convertible into double buggies. So, they can carry a maximum of 2 children with stroller boards.
Mixx Next only offers 3 colours which are not enough for some. Many parents love bright colours and this can be a reason some won’t prefer the Nuna buggy.
Although the Bugaboo Fox 2 is indeed better, it does not mean the Nuna Mixx Next has less value for some. So to conclude both are super good and will stay with the family for years.
If you need more space and if you will travel a lot with your baby then the Fox 2 is a better choice. If you are mostly using your buggy for the city and the area you live then the Mixx Next will do.
So your choice will depend on your lifestyle. Measure the pros and cons.
