The Silver Cross Pioneer is billed as ‘big, bold, generous and robust’, and it’s certainly a sturdy and stylish-looking pushchair.

£200.99
Reviewed

An enduring favourite, the Mamas & Papas Armadillo has been around since 2013, and it’s a popular choice for parents looking for a lightweight, travel-system-compatible pushchair. The seat unit isn’t reversible though, and the handlebar isn’t adjustable. Are those the only issues we found while testing? Read our review to get the full rundown.

Silver Cross Pop

Silver Cross Pop

Which? score %

£150.00
Reviewed

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.

Nuna Mixx

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.

See what we found when we put it through our stringent pushchair tests.

According to Maxi Cosi, the Adorra is the complete package from birth to approximately 3.5 years.

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 £422.

Some 42% of the parents we questioned as part of our 2017 baby survey had problems with pushchair wheels in the first two years of ownership, while 39% had problems with the brakes.*

We want to help you make the best buying decision for your family, which is why we send the newest prams, buggies and strollers on the market 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.

*We surveyed 2,000 parents in March 2017.
