Silver Cross pushchairs enjoy a lot of popularity among parents – in our online survey of parents this year, Silver Cross was the third most commonly owned pushchair brand – and it's about to release a new version of its popular Reflex pushchair.

The Reflex comes equipped with new design features aimed at comfort for the baby. It has a deep, padded ‘baby head hugger’, and there’s also an optional footmuff with a fur trim. 

There are some extra aesthetic flourishes too: it will be available in three new colourways and has a swish leather bumper bar. 

The new Silver Cross Reflex will retail for £199 and will be available from Saturday 14 May 2016.

We’ve put the original Reflex stroller through our tough lab tests, so if you’re considering investing in this premium stroller, you can see how its predecessor performed in our Silver Cross Reflex review.

As with the original version of this stroller, Silver Cross says the new Reflex is suitable from birth, with a reclining seat designed to cradle newborns at a safe angle. A lot of pushchairs require you to purchase an extra carrycot to use with your newborn, so the adaptable seat on the Reflex makes it a versatile option.

Some pushchair seats are not suitable from birth even if they are advertised as such, which is something we look at when testing for our reviews. The original Reflex seat did pass this test, reclining to 160 degrees at its lowest position.

Silver Cross pushchair reviews

With so many options on the market, it can be really difficult to choose the right pushchair. The best ones we’ve tested feel lightweight and easy to push on a range of surfaces, and are easy to fold, carry and store. There are also a lot of important features to look out for, like a fair-sized shopping basket.

In addition to the original Reflex, we’ve tested several other Silver Cross pushchairs. You can see if the brand’s popularity is justified by heading to our Silver Cross pushchair reviews.
