Makers of popular car seats, find out all about Maxi-Cosi pushchairs - including how they did in our tests - below.
Maxi-Cosi was originally a car seat manufacturer, but it has gone on to also become a popular buggy brand, and the first to introduce the 3-in-1 travel system concept.
If you like the idea of a travel-system pushchair, you might want to consider a Maxi-Cosi, as many of its pushchairs are compatible with popular Maxi Cosi car seats.
Maxi-Cosi prides itself on producing pushchairs that are adaptable and designed to make your life as a parent easier, no matter where you're going.

The Maxi-Cosi Stella, Streety Plus, Elea and Mura Plus are all compatible with the well-known Maxi-Cosi Cabriofix and Pebble car seats.
If you're thinking of buying one, read our child car seat reviews to see how these seats scored in our safety and usability tests. We test car seats more stringently than the current UK ECE R44/04 standard requires, including crash tests at 40mph as opposed to 30mph, and a side-impact crash.
We've found big differences between a good car seat and a bad one, so take a look at our reviews to find the safest one, and to avoid our Don't Buy child car seats.

Maxi-Cosi Stella review
At 55cm, the Maxi Cosi Stella is particularly narrow for an all terrain travel system, which could make it ideal for both city dwelling and country walking.

Before you buy, see our guide to buying second-hand pushchairs to find out what you should look out for.
How we review Maxi-Cosi pushchairs
Our experts in the test lab put each Maxi-Cosi 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 whether 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.
