There are a few new buggies on the block we need to introduce to you this spring. If you’re in the market for a new pushchair, check out our mini-reviews of the best. From jogging strollers and tandems to super lightweights and the best new and improved styles for older favourites, you’re certainly not lacking in choice.
Metro Compact City Stroller 2020, Ergobaby
Ergobaby has updated the Metro Compact City Stroller for 2020, making several changes to this already excellent compact travel stroller.
The Metro now comes with a new, specially reinforced, aluminium frame which makes it even more durable yet just as lightweight as before. They’ve redesigned the canopy fabric so it’s now rugged and hard-wearing for longer-lasting protection. Upgraded wheel bearings mean a smoother push, and they’ve increased the buggy’s maximum weight limit so it’s now suitable for up to 22kg.
The Metro Compact City Stroller 2020 is now available in a fabulous, new sophisticated colourway, Plum and Marine Blue.
Horizon Moonlight, Silver Cross
Introducing the brand new one-seat solution from birth to toddler! Available from the 5th of June.
The NEW Horizon Moonlight from Silver Cross is a great urban travel system that only requires one seat. It includes a newborn babynest, that creates a lie-flat pram, therefore, removing the need for a carrycot. When your child is ready, all you do is simply remove the nestand et voila! The Horizon becomes a reversible pushchair suitable for children up to 25kg.
It has a one-piece fold with the seat in place and the stroller is both light and compact. It makes a great urban travel system but with its large multi-terrain wheels and puncture-proof tyres, it’s also perfect for country adventures. Complete the travel system with the Silver Cross Dream or Simplicity infant carriers.
Pioneer Eclipse, Silver Cross
Another exciting launch from Silver Cross! The all-new Pioneer Eclipse is set to storm its way onto the pushchair market this year on the 26th May.
The Pioneer Eclipse is suitable from birth right up to 25kg and has been designed to handle every type of terrain. It really is a gorgeous travel system, combining the beautiful design with unique sculpted black fabrics and stunning rose gold highlights.
Incorporating all the features of the Pioneer travel system, the Eclipse provides on-the-go comfort and style. It’s also compatible with the Silver Cross Dream and Simplicity infant carriers to create a full travel system.
Silver Cross Spirit Onyx, exclusively at Kiddies Kingdom
The Spirit from Silver Cross is suitable from newborn up to 22kg and is available exclusively at Kiddies Kingdom.
What we love about this stroller is that it’s perfect for rural and urban lifestyles. The agile Spirit has many practical features to help busy parents get out and about with ease. It’s also super comfortable for babies as it comes with a deep-padded newborn head hugger, plus dynamic four-wheel suspension and reversible seat that has unique free-flow ventilation and a padded seat liner for cooler weather.
The Spirit Onyx can be combined with the Silver Cross Dream or Simplicity infant car seats to create a full travel system.
Bee5 Coral, Bugaboo
The Bugaboo Bee 5 is already a much-loved stroller within its diverse collection. Also referred to as the “urban pushchair”, it is notorious for its ability to keep up with city life as well as provide optimal comfort for your child. Bugaboo’s limited-edition version of the much loved Bugaboo Bee5 in Coral is one of the freshest looking strollers around this spring/summer.
Jet Black, Silver Cross
If you’re looking to travel this year and for ease, need a buggy that’ll store in an overhead locker, here’s a great solution.
Suitable from birth up to 15kg, the updated Jet stroller has a new ergonomic seat which is even more comfortable for baby. Updates include wider front wheels and better suspension to offer an improved ride. The updated design features softly textured weave fabrics and a stylish matt black chassis, as well as a tan leatherette handle and bumper bar.
Lightweight and agile at only 6.2kg, the Jet stroller is freestanding when folded and pulls along suitcase-style, making it ideal for travelling with a baby. It also has the capability of becoming a complete travel system with the addition of a Silver Cross Dream or Simplicity infant carrier.
The Bugaboo Ant is the lightest, most compact travel pushchair from Bugaboo yet. Accepted by most airlines as a carry-on, the Ant is the perfect companion for every family adventure. Actually, not only does it work brilliantly as a travel stroller, it’s perfect for those wanting a second buggy for kids older than six months.
Its ultra-compact hold, pull-along trolley mode and all-wheel suspension make this buggy a mean contender in the travel category of buggies. We love that it’s also car seat compatible, and made suitable from birth with the Bugaboo Bee 5 Baby Cocoon.
Brand New Fox2 and Donkey3, Bugaboo
More from Bugaboo! The Fox and Donkey are already much-loved favourites, and the big news is that both strollers have had a fabulous revamp for 2020. New features include
- Improved aesthetics for a more sleek look on hardware and fabrics
- Updated sun canopy with peek-a-boo and breezy panel – currently the largest on the market
- Upgrade to the carrycot with two extra pockets
Both products will go on sale on April 1st, 2020.
The Joolz Aer is an innovative, lightweight buggy with outstanding ergonomic design. In just one second you can fold and unfold the buggy with one single hand. It is one of the lightest buggies (6kg) on the market and with a width of just 44 cm; you can take the Joolz Aer straight on to the plane and place it in the overhead lockers.
The new pushchair has all the trademark Joolz features you’d expect, such as an intuitive reclining system, a large extended sun hood with UPF50 for sun protection, and an easy access large shopping basket.
A compact stroller perfect for city living or jet-setting travellers, the TRIV offers a smooth ride for little ones and easy manoeuvrability for parents. It has a one-hand adjustable push bar and quick-release, five-point no-rethread harness, all-wheel suspension, one-touch brake and front swivel wheel locks.
What’s more, there’s an easy-to-fold flat design, flip fold seat and oversized storage basket – making the TRIV another serious option for family travel.
MIXX Next, Nuna
Nuna has just launched the new MIXX Next, a stroller suitable for newborns to children weighing up to 22k.
The MIXX next is designed to make life as smooth as possible for parents, especially with its all-wheel suspension. Its one-hand recline makes on-the-go relaxing even easier to facilitate, and its true flat sleeper recline position offers the ultimate in comfort. The removable and reversible two-piece seat pad grows with your little one and the quick-release harness converts from five to three points.
The MIXX Next incorporates a one-touch brake system with front swivel wheel locks. The wheels are actually able to retract, making this stroller even more compact, so it can be squeezed into the tightest of spaces. With a generous sized shopping basket, you won’t be caught piling bags on the handlebars, which is always a win.
Balios S Lux, Cybex
We love the Balios S Lux, the new offering from Cybex. The stroller is versatile, with four travelling options, making it the perfect travel companion. The frame can be paired with the Lux Seat, a Cybex car seat, the Cot S and the cosy Cocoon S to make it a convenient 4-in-1 travel system.
Thanks to the Balios S Lux’s generous all-terrain wheels and soft suspension you and your baby are guaranteed a smooth and comfortable ride wherever the adventure. Yep, whether you’re navigating the unpredictable pavements of the city, winding country roads or grassy walks, pushing this pram is pretty effortless, no matter what the age of your little one.
Suitable from birth to approximately four years, the Balios S Lux offers a premium ride with excellent manoeuvrability. It’s available in an elegant black or silver frame, and in five new colours, Navy Blue, River Blue, Magnolia Pink, Soho Grey and Deep Black. Which one will you choose?

The new three-wheel Spring from Thule is the latest addition to the portfolio of strollers all designed for active families on the go, and it’s one I’d love to get my hands on, and see made into a double for us parents with two little ones to cart about the place.
I digress. The Spring is a compact lightweight city stroller suitable from six months up to 65lb and can be used from birth with the compatible car seat. It comes with an easy one-hand fast fold and self-standing capability which makes it a great buggy to carry, transport and store. Its step-in footrest makes it easy for older children to climb into the buggy unaided.
The reclining seat and no-puncture foam-filled tyres make for a very comfortable ride and the 5 point harness keeps your little one secure. We’re huge fans of anything bespoke at My Baba, and the ‘design your own option’ that Thule offers means you can create the perfect personalised pushchair for you!
Lila CP, Maxi-Cosi
Introducing the Maxi-Cosi Lila CP. This new addition to the Lila family offers both comfort and style in spades. It’s suitable from six months up to the age of four years or to the weight of 22kg. Combine with the Maxi-Cosi Oria Carrycot for a from-birth solution or convert the Lila CP into a travel system with the Maxi-Cosi Jade car cot or Maxi-Cosi Pebble Pro i-Size car seat.
The four-wheel suspension offers fantastic manoeuvrability, as well as a soothingly smooth ride for baby too. It folds easily in an upright position using just one hand without the need to bed.
The Lila CP has a dual-sided, thermo-regulated mattress to ensure your baby is comfortable in all seasons. The breathable mesh side will keep little ones cool in the summer months, while the fleece side retains warmth when temperatures drop. It is also fitted with an integrated nap keeper to shut out bright sunlight and insects too.
It’s a pushchair designed for modern-day urban and suburban life and nails both.
New Colour Collection, Cybex
We love it when buggy brands release new colours, and now it’s the turn of Cybex. They’ve just launched a brand-new colour collection across its 2020 platinum pushchairs. Choose from head-turning shades including Mustard Yellow, Autumn Gold, Mountain Blue, Khaki Green, Soho Grey to name but a few.
What’s more, the Priam and Mios strollers offer even more luxury with premium finishing touches, including added detailed appliques and a beautiful new stitching pattern on the Lux seat and the Lux Carry Cot.
