The Mia Moda Atmosferra gets high marks from experts and owners for its many features for the price. One expert reviewer calls is a luxury stroller at a mid-range price and says it's comfortable and practical for both infants and toddlers. The convertible seat can face toward or away from the parent. There is also a bassinet feature for newborns and it accommodates toddlers at the upper weight range. It is compatible with the Mia Moda Vivo infant car seat to become a travel system.
While it seems to be a very good stroller, it's not widely reviewed -- possibly because, as one source points out, the Mia Moda brand is not widely available in stores for parents to try before they buy. The same source also expresses reservations about the long-term durability of Mia Moda strollers, but we found no complaints about durability for the Atmosferra.

The Mia Moda Atmosferra earns 3.4 stars (out of a possible 5) in 20 reviews. Owners say its features are great, especially the large amount of storage. Users also say it's highly maneuverable, and parents of infants love the bassinet feature. However, most say it's hard to fold and is bulky and hard to deal with when folded.

The Mia Moda Atmosferra earns 4.2 stars (out of a possible 5) in more than 30 reviews. Owners agree it's a great stroller for the price, raving about its many convenience features such as the reversible seat, large basket and canopy and extendable handles. The difficult, two-handed fold seems to be the one big complaint, along with its large size when folded.
