Designed to comfortably transport your little one from birth right through their toddler years, the manufacturer claims the Nuna Mixx will last until your child is 20kg, which is around five or six-years old. This pushchair comes with a lot of features, including a reversible seat, one-hand recline and lockable front-swivel wheels. But is it easy to use and is it practical?

No hands are needed to fold the Maxi Cosi Nova 4 Wheels, just a tap of your foot to fold this new pushchair from Maxi Cosi. It has a reversible seat and can be used with a carry cot or car seat instead of the seat unit, but is it easy to push and will your child be happy to sit in it? See what we found when we put it through our stringent pushchair tests.

The Silver Cross Pop pushchair might be lightweight and compact, but this stroller can take passengers weighing as much as 25kg. It has a lie-flat seat, which means it’s suitable to be used from birth, however it's not travel system compatible like the Silver Cross Reflex. But what is it like to push and is the seat going to be comfortable for your little passenger? We took it to our lab to find out.

Bugaboo Fox

The highly anticipated Bugaboo Fox is the newest pushchair from the premium Dutch brand. It’s undoubtedly expensive, but is it worth investing in? It’s suitable from birth, travel-system compatible and it boasts a generous 10kg shopping basket. Bugaboo also claims the Fox has the ‘best drive performance yet.’ If you’re tempted but want to make sure it’s the right pushchair for you, make sure to read our review and check out the star ratings.

Joie Tourist

£150.00

This pushchair is claimed to weigh less than 6kg. It's been designed as a solution for jet-setting families, as it's light and folds very compact, so you can take it on some aeroplanes as cabin luggage. It's quick and easy to fold with one hand, and it comes with a handy carry strap and washable carry bag to help you carry it when you're rushing to your boarding gate. Is this relatively inexpensive stroller the answer to all your travel woes? Read our review for the results of our tough tests.

BabyStyle's latest Oyster pushchair has arrived. The Oyster 3 has been completely redesigned with larger wheels, a bigger seat unit, larger shopping basket and a larger carrycot. It's bigger than the Oyster 2, but now folds smaller, plus it's lighter in weight. The original BabyStyle Oyster pushchair was one of our most popular pushchairs for a very long time.

How Which? pushchair testing is unique

A pushchair is an investment: the average cost of those currently on sale that we’ve reviewed comes in at £430.

However, in a survey of 2,428 parents in February 2019 we discovered that they're spending an average of £340 on a brand new pushchair.

We want to help you make the best buying decision for your family, which is why we send the latest prams, buggies and strollers for testing at our lab throughout the year.

Safety and durability are vitally important, so every pushchair we test endures a rolling road test, where it’s strapped to a specially designed treadmill, loaded up with the maximum weight in the shopping basket and a 15kg dummy, designed to replicate a toddler. It then has to last being wheeled and bumped for more than 200km without breaking or being damaged.

In addition we check for any choking hazards and assess the safety of brakes and harnesses, as well as the strength and durability of the handlebars, so you can be sure your baby will be kept safe.

Our parent panel and their children also get their hands on all the pushchairs we test. They carry out a range of tasks, including pushing, steering, folding, carrying and adjusting; to see how easy each one is to use and how the pushchairs handle on different ground surfaces.
