Our Guide to The Summer's Best New Pushchairs

It can be so confusing being tasked with the purchase of a new pushchair. These days there is so much choice, from compact, urban strollers, to more sturdy travel systems – you’ll first need to work out what you need.

A few things to consider when buying a buggy:

  • Town or country?
  • Travel system or basic stroller?
  • Your boot space
  • Basket space – is under buggy storage important to you?
  • Handlebar positioning – if you’re tall you may consider this
  • Compact or more sturdy?
  • Room for another? Will there be an additional sibling in the next year or so?
  • Is it suitable from birth?
  • Compatible with your car seat?
