Interested in a Britax pushchair? Find out how they've performed in our tests before you buy.
Britax was founded in the 1930s, initially focusing on the development of adult seatbelts, and launched its first ever child car seat in the 1960s.
But Britax is now famous for all its pushchairs, too – three-wheel pushchairs, four-wheel pushchairs, singles and doubles – and it has also bought the Bob brand of pushchairs, adding the Bob Revolution Pro running buggy to its range.

Britax reviews and Best Buys
Britax pushchairs come in a range of colours, including flame red, ocean sky and coral peach and aqua green, so whatever your preference there should be a colour for you.
Britax has also included a number of useful extra features on some of its pushchairs like one-hand folds and lie-flat seats, so you can use them from birth. Most can be used as part of a travel system, or with carrycots (extra purchase)
Britax B-Ready review
The Britax B-Ready is a single-to-double travel system which claims to give you total flexibility. To use this pushchair from birth, you'll need to budget and buy a separate carry cot. And it can be upgraded to a twin or a double pushchair from the outset. It comes in a range of colours, too.
We put this travel system through a range of safety and durability checks. Read our Britax B-Ready review to see what we uncovered.
Britax Holiday review
The Britax Holiday joins the ever-growing range of lightweight travel strollers with a compact fold. This offering from Britax has a carry strap, mesh sides and a shopping basket with a 5kg claimed capacity, but there's no foot rest or recline.
Will the lack of these features affect how it performs? Read our Britax Holiday review to find out if this stroller really is your perfect travel partner.
Britax B-Lite review
The Britax B-Lite is, as the name, suggests a lightweight stroller with the added bonus of being able to use it with a soft carrycot or a car seat as part of a travel system. It folds down compact and comes in a range of colours.

Britax Affinity 2 review
The Britax Affinity 2 is the latest version of this popular Britax travel system, it comes in a range of colours and has had a few updates since we originally tested it. The seat is bigger, it should be easier to recline and Britax says the carrycot is easier to use.
Read our review of the Britax Affinity 2 pushchair to see what our safety and durability tests uncovered.
Britax B-Agile 3-wheel review
The three-wheeled version of the Britax B-Agile has the same one-handed folding mechanism, but with a slimmer and sleeker frame.
But how did the pushchair do when we put its agility to the test in our lab and with our parent panel – read our review of the Britax B-Agile 3.
Britax B-Agile double review
As well as three-wheeled and four-wheeled versions, there is also a double model. With side-by-side seats (some double pushchairs have one on the top and one below), this pushchair has the same one-handed folding mechanism as the other B-Agile models.
How easy will this be to use on a double pushchair, and will it be bulky? Find out whether we rated it a Best Buy in our review of the Britax B-Agile double.
Britax B-Motion 4-wheel review
The Britax B-Motion 4-wheel is a more rugged version of the B-Agile, with chunkier, air-filled rubber wheels so it can tackle rough ground.
Great for those who like to get out in the great outdoors. But will it really be good at handling any terrain? Our review of the Britax B-Motion 4 will tell you everything you need to know.
Britax Bob Revolution Pro
Active parents don't need to put their exercising on the back-burner thanks to Britax Bob Revolution Pro. It's approved for running with, but the swivel front wheel should mean it's easy enough to use as your main pushchair, too.
Find out if this pushchair impressed our parents enough in our review of the Britax Bob Revolution Pro.
How we review Britax pushchairs
Our experts in the test lab put each Britax pushchair through more than 30 tests to check its strength, durability and safety in line with British standards including checking for finger traps or choking hazards.
We assess how easy the pushchair is to push, adjust for children of different ages and fold up. We also assess suitability for public transport and test to see if there's space left in the boot of a standard family car once the pushchair is in there.
The final part of our testing involves a panel of parents (and their babies), who rate the appearance and features of the pushchair. They take each model for a spin to see how easy and convenient it is to manoeuvre on pavements, bumpy ground, up and down stairs, and around other obstacles.
Find out which pushchairs topped our tests and have been named Best Buy pushchairs.
How much does a Britax pushchair cost?
Britax pushchairs range from around £120 for a lightweight stroller, to around £500 for the B-Ready double. The Britax Bob Revolution Pro is available for between £450 and £550, depending where you shop.
If you’re prepared to buy second-hand, it could knock around £50 to more than £100 off the price of a new model. If you're buying second-hand, there are some important safety checks you should make, and we strongly recommend that you never buy a child car seat second-hand, as it could have damage you can't necessarily see.
Where to buy Britax pushchairs
As well as selling in a number of online and high street stores, such as Amazon, Argos, Boots and Mothercare, Britax has its own UK-specific online shop.
The shop includes buying information, particularly for child car seats. If you're keen to buy a child car seat online, we would always strongly recommend that you go to a store to check it fits in your car – even a Best Buy child car seat might not protect your child if it's the wrong one for your child or car.
