Which? reveals new Best Buy pushchairNew Mountain Buggy and Britax pushchairs tested

27 July 2013

Mountain buggy mini pushchair

Two Mountain Buggy pushchairs, the Mini and Urban Jungle, are among the latest travel systems to face the tough durability trial and parent and baby panel in the Which? pushchairs test.  

One Mountain Buggy pushchair was so convenient to use and lovely to push that it has received the coveted Which? Best Buy accolade. 

To find out which one made the grade, visit our Mountain Buggy pushchair reviews.

Mountain Buggy Mini pushchair

The Mini (£350), pictured right, is described by Mountain Buggy as 'the perfect city adventurer'. Its 'perfect weight distribution' apparently allows you to ‘pop’ the front wheel up for kerb hopping around the city. 

Which? always assesses how easy pushchairs are to use on pavements and kerbs, so read our Mountain Buggy Mini review to see if we found this claim to be true.

Mountain Buggy Urban Jungle pushchair

The Urban Jungle (£450) is an older model that has been updated for 2013 to make it easier to use as a travel system with a carrycot or child car seat.

We've often found carrycot adaptors for Mountain Buggy pushchairs stiff to attach. Read our review of the Mountain Buggy Urban Jungle to find out if this is still the case.

Other pushchairs on test

A batch of pushchairs being tested by Which?

Four other new travel systems faced the same safety, durability and ease of use trials as the Mountain Buggy ones. 

All pushchairs tested by Which? are taken through an obstacle course of everyday hazards by a panel of parents with their babies, and laboratory experts who specialise in assessing how easy it is to use products. 

They all face the same set of tests, so you can easily compare how they cope and choose the most suitable pushchair for your lifestyle.

Mothercare Xpedior travel system 

A £250 travel system that includes a child car seat and built-in pram body. It's so popular that it's flying from the shelves, according to Mothercare. But is it any good? Read our Mothercare Xpedior review to find out.

Babystyle Oyster Max

A single-to-double convertible version of the popular Babystyle Oyster. Is this slightly bigger pushchair better or worse than the original? Our review of the Babystyle Oyster Max reveals all.

Britax Affinity

Our Britax Affinity review will help you decide if this pushchair is perfect for parents who use their cars a lot. We've assessed how easy it is to use as a travel system by attaching a Britax child car seat to the Affinity's chassis.

Maxi Cosi Mura Plus

The updated version of the Mura now boasts a more enclosed seat. But do we still criticise it for being too heavy? Read our Maxi Cosi Mura Plus review to find out.
