Uppababy Cruz 2017 – £600

The Uppababy Cruz 2017 is far and away the most popular pushchair review on Which.co.uk in the past three months, with parents seeking out this travel-system compatible pushchair in droves.

Uppababy claims it’s a compact and streamlined buggy that’s ideal for urban environments.

It has a number of useful features, including a reversible seat unit, a large shopping basket and an adjustable handlebar.

To find out how easy it is to fold, stand upright when folded and how well it fits in the boot of your car, read our full Uppababy Cruz 2017 review before parting with your cash.

Bugaboo Fox – £890

The latest animal-themed pushchair from Bugaboo made a splash when it launched in 2018 and it’s rapidly become one of its best-selling travel-system compatible pushchairs.

Labelled ‘the ultimate comfort pushchair’ by Bugaboo, it’s certainly versatile. You can swap seat direction as well as use it with an infant car seat or carrycot.

Its all-wheel suspension and big tyres are designed to make this buggy as easy to push off-road as it is on pavements.

On paper, this premium, pricey pushchair has a lot going for it, however the real test is whether a pushchair can stand up to our tough durability tests and whether it gets the thumbs-up from our parent testing panel. Check out the Bugaboo Fox review to get our unbiased verdict.

iCandy Peach 5 – £999

In 2018 iCandy tinkered with its iconic Peach pushchair, making more than 60 modifications to increase the functionality and practicality. These included a zipped extension on the hood and a generous 10kg shopping basket.

Part of the original appeal of the Peach was the ability to convert it from a single to a double buggy. You can still do that, and also now the carrycot and seat unit share the same fabrics which means you won’t need to shell out for a carrycot separately, plus there are less added extras to store at home.

Is worth the £1,000 investment? Take a look at our iCandy Peach 5 review to see how the fifth iteration of the Peach fared in our comprehensive tests.

Silver Cross Pop – £150

The Silver Cross Pop is a fraction of the price of the other pushchairs in the top five and it looks ideal if you’re after a lightweight stroller for nipping to the shops, keeping in the car boot or taking on holiday.

It’s not travel-system compatible, but Silver Cross claims it’s suitable from birth as the seat almost lies flat. Typically pushchairs last until your child reaches 15kg, but the maximum weight for the Pop is 25kg, which is around six years old.

During our tests our ergonomic experts assessed the seat unit to check whether the backrest is tall and the seat wide enough to comfortably fit your growing child. See what we found and whether it really is suitable for a newborn in our Silver Cross Pop review.

5. Silver Cross Pioneer – £845

Rounding out our top five is another pushchair from Silver Cross, although the Pioneer is very different from the Pop.

It’s a big and sturdy travel-system compatible pushchair with large all-terrain wheels, a reversible seat, and a generous shopping basket ideal for shopping and day trips.

Part of our tests include taking this pushchair around our specially-designed obstacle course which includes pavements, kerbs, gravel, bumpy grass and park wood chips.

Have a read of the Silver Cross Pioneer review to discover how easy it is to manoeuvre.
