08 October 2013

Silver Cross Wayfarer

Which? has just revealed the results of its latest pushchairs test, including six new Best Buy recommendations and a Don't Buy warning, based on poor results in tough durability tests.  

To read more about all of the new pushchairs we've tested, and discover which models are our new Best Buys, visit our pushchairs review.

Mountain Buggy vs Silver Cross

Two of the highest profile new releases on test are the Mountain Buggy Cosmopolitan and Silver Cross Wayfarer (pictured right), which both cost just under £500. 

Both of these travel system pushchairs have reversible main seats and can also be used with a car seat on the frame. 

They can both also be converted into a pram so that your newborn baby can lie flat, which is the best position for them when they are very small.

Only one of these pushchairs was convenient enough to use for us to recommend it as a Best Buy. To find out which it is, click on the links above or see our full list of Best Buy pushchairs.

New Best Buy double pushchairs

We have also just tested some of the newest and most popular double pushchairs. 

Take a shortcut to our double pushchair reviews if you'd like to compare the features and prices of double pushchairs including the newly tested:

  • Britax B-Agile double
  • ABC Design Zoom
  • Stokke Cruisi double (also tested when used as a single)
  • Babystyle Oyster Max (also tested when used as a single)
  • Graco Trekko Duo double (also tested when used as a single)

Bumpy road test uncovers a Don't Buy

All of the pushchairs that Which? tests are placed on a bumpy treadmill and pushed the distance from London to Bristol. 

This tough test revealed problems with the durability of the shopping basket frame of one of the pushchairs that we tested. 

You can find out which lightweight pushchair we think you should avoid, until this problem has been addressed by the manufacturer, by logging in to Which? and reading our pushchair reviews.
