Off-road luxury SUV maker Land Rover has teamed up with popular pushchair brand iCandy to create the iCandy for Land Rover Peach All-Terrain, the first pushchair to be launched at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
This upcoming release from iCandy is a special edition of the Peach All-Terrain pushchair, the brand’s flagship model, and is iCandy’s first four-wheel all-terrain pushchair. It is one of a couple of recent examples we’ve seen of car brands making the foray into pushchair design. Read on to find out more about the new iCandy for Land Rover pushchair, and the latest collaboration between Silver Cross and Aston Martin.

What is the iCandy for Land Rover Peach?
Details are still forthcoming, and we will update you as we find out more. Here is what we know so far:
This isn’t just a re-upholstered iCandy
It’s actually been designed and built from scratch by the two companies. They claim that the combination of Land Rover’s expertise in motor design and iCandy’s expertise in pushchair design gives this new all-terrain a unique advantage over existing all-terrain pushchairs. We will have to wait and see.
It has four wheels
This is iCandy’s first all-terrain pushchair with four wheels, which could help it tackle uneven surfaces and provide stability. According to the manufacturers, having four wheels ‘acts as a clear and intended tribute to the exceptional four wheel legacy of Land Rover’ – but there is no Land Rover four-wheel-drive or low-range gearbox in sight – yet.
It has Land Rover inspired design
Beyond the four wheels, there are lots of design details that mirror Land Rover’s aesthetic. Land Rover’s signature grille pattern has been incorporated into the design of the hood, and the seat stitching coordinates with that found on the seats of most Land Rover vehicles.
The footmuff and seat liner also have elements of design from the car brand, and part of the of the handle is the same shade of orange that Land Rovers are available in.

iCandy Peach reviews
We don’t yet know how the new Peach will stand up to its lofty claims.
Which? Car Expert Adrian Porter said: ‘Land Rover isn’t just known as carmaker with a history of making tough off-roading vehicles, it’s also known as a brand synonymous with luxury – so I’d expect any collaboration to have high quality, comfortable materials.
‘However, we highly recommend any potential Land Rover owners check out our car brand reliability page before buying.’
New Aston Martin Silver Cross
If the iCandy Land Rover collaboration wasn’t luxurious enough, the Aston Martin version of the Silver Cross Surf (pictured above) costs twice as much, at a whopping £3,000. Check out our review of the model it’s based on: the Silver Cross Surf 3, which is available for £845.
Stay tuned as a new Aston Martin Silver Cross pushchair is just about to drive over the horizon and into view, due to be revealed tomorrow. We’ll update you on the details from the Kind und Jugend baby fair.
