Six new Best Buy pushchairs revealedBut is the Bugaboo Cameleon 3 one of them?

23 November 2012

Bugaboo Cameleon 3

Six new pushchairs have been rated as Best Buys in the latest Which? pushchairs test which included new buggies from Bugaboo, Silver Cross, Chicco, Quinny and Mamas & Papas.

We’ve just tested 10 of the newest pushchairs that cover a range of prices and features. The latest batch included a £118 Quinny model as well as the £800 Bugaboo Cameleon 3 – an updated version of one of the most popular travel system pushchairs of recent years.

Which? deputy home editor Hazel Cottrell said: ‘When we test pushchairs we don't just put them through expert usability tests and gruelling durability tests, such as wheeling each one 86.4km over a bumby treadmill.

'We also get six parents and their children to try out each pushchair and navigate it through a course of everyday obstacles to see how easy and straightforward it is to use in everyday life. Only the pushchairs that score highest overall can become Best Buys'

Bugaboo Cameleon 3 on test

The Bugaboo Cameleon is one of the most popular travel systems of recent years and Bugaboo says the most recent version – the Cameleon 3 – is the best yet.

Bugaboo says it has changed 90% of the materials and design and says the new version features a new lighter and easier-folding chassis as well as a larger basket and easily reversible seat. 

So is it worth the high price tag? We reveal our definitive verdict in the full .

Other pushchairs tested

Three of the 10 pushchairs we tested were from Mamas & Papas and the all-terrain Mamas & Papas 03 Sport was one of the least expensive models in the batch.

The 03 Sport is an all-terrain pushchair, and comes with built-in adaptors so you can mount a child car seat and use it as a travel system. Read our full to see how it compares to the five times more expensive Cameleon 3.
