Uppababy Minu V2

NEW 2022
The more-featured Minu

see 1 parent review

The Uppababy Minu V2 is a 2022 iteration and a second generation of the sturdy Uppababy Minu - an ultra-compact pushchair that is very lightweight while usable pretty much from birth.
The Minu V2 actually builds on the from-birth friendliness and adds a full-featured high-positioned bassinet option to the car seat/travel system compatibility, making it possible to create a 3in1 stroller system out of the Minu V2. More Uppababy Minu V2 versus Minu V1 differences include an updated, more upright seat with no-rethread harness straps, a zip-out extendable canopy without a visor for a more elegant look, adjustable calf support, a renewed opening mechanism that is simply easier, added perforated PU leather-covered bumper bar, a renewed leg/calf rest with adjustment, and overall design update with new colorways to choose from as well as renewed leatherette details on the handle and belly bar. The Minu V2 is also compatible with more accessories (they are, however, sold separately) – not only the Uppababy carrycot but also the new buggy board / Piggyback ride-along board for an older sibling.

The stroller's design remains lightweight and nimble (even if over 1 kilogram heavier than the Minu 1), with a nice enough width that fits even narrow aisles. The world-facing seat can be adjusted to an almost-lie flat that is best for children from 6 months and up (for smaller babies, definitely use the car seat or the bassinet from the from-birth system options). There's also the practical, shoe-saving brake, activated by pressing one side and deactivated by pressing the other, as well as an accessible shopping basket.

Parent reviews of the Uppababy Minu V2

if you own(ed) it, own it ;-)
parents say thx^^
  • Fabrics
  • Materials and wheels
  • A lot of space up to the canopy
  • Sturdy frame
  • Nice handle height
  • Good maneuvering
  • Shame they put the sunvisor away, it was a nice feature
  • Short-ish seatback
  • Bulkier than your usual ultracompact

Finally a Minu with a bumper bar. It is super sleek and even if not having such a tall seatback, there's a lot of space up to the canopy.

The sturdiness of the frame is already well-known, and that didn't change. I really like the rubber wheels with a bit of cushioning, and the details of the pretty fabrics, the perforated eco-leather, and the sliding harness belts are gorgeous.

I am just sorry the seat's not a lie flat, and the fold is slightly larger than the cabin luggage measurement, but as a very small buggy for the car that can last you even with everyday use, this is one of the best options, I found.

Your questions about the Uppababy Minu V2

1)

How tall is the seat back please?

Hi, Jacque,

The seatback is about 46 cm (18 inches) tall. There is also quite some space to the top of the canopy.
