Top 10 popular pushchairs for 2021
We've tested hundreds of pushchairs to help you identify the buggies that are safe, durable and easy to use, comfortable for baby and bursting with useful features. But in addition to those pushchairs that have the Which? seal of approval, which prams are parents seeking out?
We’ve crunched the numbers and can reveal the top 10 most popular pushchair reviews based on searches on Which.co.uk over the past few months. They range in price from £150 to £1,000, and the list includes travel-system-compatible pushchairs and lightweight strollers, with some new launches and others old favourites.
Our review of the Nuna Mixx has generated the most amount of interest online, despite launching nearly two years ago. Hot on its heels is the Bugaboo Fox 2, launched in 2020.
Perennial favourites; the Maxi Cosi Nova 4 Wheels and Silver Cross Pop stroller, maintain a place in the top 10, but we've also got new entries from Cybex, Mamas & Papas and the newly updated Babyzen Yoyo2.

How Which? pushchair testing is unique
In a survey of 1,560 parents in March 2020 we discovered that they're spending an average of £378 on a 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 survive 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 various ground surfaces.
