Cybex Mios 3

The luxury compact urban reversible with an updated bassinet & seat

The Cybex Mios 3 is the 2022 update of the Cybex Mios 2. The updates of the 3rd generation include a renewed Lux Cot bassinet that sits 10 cm higher on the pram's frame, an updated seat unit and its harness, and also the cup holder which is now higher-positioned on the stroller's frame.

The updated Cybex Mios 2022's carrycot got a the same redesign as the Cybex Priam 4's and is now closer to the older 2018 Priam bassinet design, more square lined and not as oval as the Mios 2's Cot anyway. It is also 2 cm wider. Moreover, it will be 200 grams lighter than the previous iteration of the bassinet. From now on, it will be attached to the stroller's frame with adapters that are also usable for the car seat, making it 10 cm higher-positioned and compatible with most strollers that have Maxi-Cosi/Cybex car seat adapters available. A lot of padding as well as ventilation/panorama window will be attractive features of the renewed platinum Lux Cot as well.

The updated Mios 3' seat unit will now be equipped with a new, one-pull harness that functions similarly to the harness of a car seat. It will be even easier to fit the safety belts to the child's body and size. A negative point will be that it seems the color packs and fabric sets will not be compatible with the new seat anymore, so it won't be possible to change fabrics or "undress" the seat unit anymore either.

The extra padded seat will still offer a full lie flat. The center of gravity of the stroller moves slightly when the stroller is reclined. You can fold the Mios 3, just as you could its predecessors, with the seat part still attached to the frame. The fully reclined seat, combined with the newborn insert and the higher apron ("Lite Cot"), creates a space similar to the conventional carrycot, suitable from birth. The optional insert soft Lite Cot can be a nice option for summer babies or for parents with limited storage space to accommodate the full-featured bassinet. A car seat can also be attached to the chassis with a set of adapters.

Your questions about the Cybex Mios 3



I am looking for a stroller that is light but can handle different terrains when I go for walks in my local park - I am between the Mios and the Bugaboo Dragonfly - please help! Also any other compact strollers for all terrain suggestions are welcome!

Hey, Raj,

Nor Mios, nor Dragonfly are all-terrain - and there is no stroller this light or compact that will actually be all-terrain.

That being said, and also counting on the wheels being small and not chunky for big bumps or holes in the sidewalks, I did use the Mios on grass and bumps rather regularly, and when taking the wheels size into consideration, I was actually very happy with the suspension and the build, sturdiness of the frame. So if you really need something this small while reclinable and for bumpy roads, the Mios is good enough, but again, you HAVE TO count on the small wheels being just that- small, so you will need to lift them over large bumps or holes.

The Dragonfly is super light and just as non-terrain-capable, personally I would not take that one for anything more than lighter urban use, the front wheels are a tad thin and also not that sprung. It is a nice model but I don't find it suitable for terrain much (or at all).

You can also look at the Cybex Eezy S-Twist+² because or the wheel size - or go for larger wheeled, forward-facing-only pushchairs like the Oyster Zero Gravity (still not an all-terrainbeast though, the low weight is simply not for all terrain much).

I've noticed that the basket weight limit is significantly lower than other strollers, which often list 9kg or more. Is the basket on the Mios 3 that much less robust or is it more about the space and what they estimate it will allow?

Hey, Miguel,

9kg maximum weight limit for a basket is actually not that usual - some stroller brands have it, but I personally saw much more with 3-5 kg basket limit. The Mios' basket, however, IS on the small side. I mean, this is a compact stroller. So only the necessities and some wet wipes, a bottle, and a few things will fit in it. I personally had a full basket and then attached a changing bag over it thanks to the frame shape, so I kind of expanded the size by that. But yeah, you cannot expect a huge stroller, and the basket's capacity is definitely not more than the official 5kg.

How much does the Mios 3 frame weight by itself? I can't seem to find that bit of information anywhere. The only figure I can find is 22.5 lbs which seems to be the weight of the frame + seat. I'd like to know how heavy it is with the bassinet attached. Thanks!

Hey, Miguel,

I am sorry, that info is not provided anywhere and I don't have it at home to tell you exactly. I know however that the seat is about 4 kg (maybe 3.8), meaning that the pram setup - with the carrycot - will be about 0.5 - 0.7 kg (1.1 - 1.54 lbs) heavier that the seat setup. This is just an "educated guess" so take it as a reference, not an exact information.

How does this compare to the Babyzen stroller? I look for a city stroller, not too large but at the same time comfortable, and that can be used for a newborn but can also last longer so I do not need to purchase a new one. Thanks!

Hey, Sil,

I don't even think you can compare the two. Yes, they are more urban, but that's about it for the similarities. The Mios has a fully reclining, reversible seat (which the Yoyo doesn't have, just a slanted, short, much less comfortable seat with a semi-recline possibility), a bumper bar, a sturdier frame with a better suspension, and an adjustable handle. That also means the Mios is larger than the Yoyo when folded - it is much smaller than any reversible pushchair I know, but still it is larger than that ocassional-use travel ultra-compact.

I personally would not get the Babyzen Yoyo unless for VERY occasional use with a kid that is at least 1yo (the newborn cocoon for the Yoyo will last about 4_5 months at the most and then the super small baby should be semi-sitting which damages their neck/spine, so a no-go for me) - for the money, I would actually get something else that feels a little more comfortable for the child.

And if you need something for everyday use, the Mios is definitely the better choice.

I am btw Cybex Mios 3 and the Uppababy Cruz. What are pros and cons of each one? Important features: comfort to sleep, durability, possibility to use from 4 months until 4 years, to travel with the stroller.

Hey, Luiza,

Both of the strollers chosen are rather high quality and thus sturdy. The main differences are the size - the MIos being MUCH more compact and more suitable for travel, but it also means smaller wheels and less terrain capability. However, the Mios also has a bit better suspension in my opinion, so if you don't go to forests with the stroller (which won't be comfy with the Cruz either), I think the push comfort is actually better with the Mios.

Another difference is the seat - the Mios is a lie-flat seat, and so, with a footmuff or a cocoon, you can use it with a very little baby too (if the baby is not too tiny, even without that). The Cruz's seat is a bucket-style seat, meaning it cannot lay flat and is better from at least 6 months up. I also found that size-wise, the Mios' seat is larger, so I think it will last you much longer. You have to count on the reversible seat being narrower and smaller than an only forward-facing one, however I was able to fit my 4yo son into the Mios, yes.

How does the Mios 3 compare to the Nuna Triv Next? I love the Mios but the back wheels are smaller so I assume the Triv would be easier to maneuver. Is one more durable than the other? Is there another stroller in this category - compact, lightweight reversible seat - that’s superior to either? I also have a Nuna Pipa car seat, so would be more compatible with the Triv, and Triv is a bit cheaper as well. But if Mios is a better option, I’m willing to compromise and splurge for the smarter buy.


Hey Cela,

I wouldn't necessarily compare the two, as the newer Triv is considerably larger. It doesn't get tipped over as the first Triv anymore, which is good - the larger wheels and a bit differently built chassis took care of that and made for a sturdier stroller overall, however, they also made it more "average mid-size reversible". Quality-wise, I have nothing against it much, but I must say the stroller is inferior to the Mios, honestly. The larger wheels don't actually make for better maneuvering, they add more stability and help a tiny little but with bumps. It is always the front wheels and the center of gravity that help with the maneuvering, and I must say the Mios' are simply much better. Not even talking about the longer seat and a sturdier chassis.

I don't think the Triv Next is a bad buy, and if it helps your budget and the car seat compatibility, it makes sense to go for it. However, out of the two, the Mios is perhaps a tad less all terrain, but much better made and nimbler.

Are the carseats that are available for the mios 3 (Cloud Z new generation) also compatible with older Mios (2 and 1)?

Hey, Be,

Yes, with the adapters, the Cloud Z car seat generation should work with the older Mioses as well. The attachment system did not change.

I am considering buying a Cybex Mios, with some second-hand parts. Are the accessories (cot lux, cosy) and stroller from different Mios generations compatible?


Heya, Alice,

It depends on which accessories. The attachment parts, like the whole seat or the carrycot, should work just fine as the attachments system did not change really. The smaller parts, like the seat covers or the canopy, may not work as the design/shape of the seat changes over time, so you won't be able to use new textiles on the older Mios frame. You will be able to click on. the carrycot or a car seat/car seat adaptors of a newer generation to the older (and vice versa), and external stuff (like a rain cover) should be working well, too.

I would like a stroller that would last for more then just one child. How strong and long lasting is the Mios 3?

Thank you

Hi, Rachel,

Definitely a nice choice if you don't need something heavily all terrain, the Mios is probably the sturdiest pushchair, frame-wise, in this category of reversible, full-featured compact strollers. I had a great experience with the previous generation and can recommending it for longevity.

Hi Eli!

I read you said that Cybex Mios is superior to Inglesina Electa. Please can you say a couple of things as to why that is?

The only thing I can think of is a better suspension on Cybex. Is it worth making the choice in its favor vs Inglesina? I literally need to order either one asap but a very tough decision!

Is the car seat better on Cybex? We don’t really know as we don’t drive!!
Thank you x

Hiya, AD,

I prefer the Mios not only because of the suspension but also because of a more practical seat. Overall, the Electa has a fabulous carrycot, however, the seat is a little worse from my, and other moms' experience - the hood wobbles, the maneuverability with it is weaker, and the whole is not as compact as the Mios. I really enjoyed the steering with the mios, and the super small size was a blessing to me.

However, there is no saying one is definitely superior, as it depends on FOR WHOM, for what use. They're both nice strollers, and the Electa has its own pros, just I personally would, practicality and longevity-wise, go for the Mios rather that that.

About the car seat, my choice was, in the end, a Maxi-Cosi, as I had a Cybex and was not happy with the fabrics, which made my song sweat a lot, and I had the more expensive line. Also, Cybex cars eats felt much heavier, and the Maxi-Cosi were lighter and with a more comfortable angle.

Joie car seats, all with the same attachment systems btw, are, on the other hand, a more affordable and also a good solution.
