10 of the best buggies for less than £350

Top pushchairs minus the top-shelf price tag, from big name buggy brands including iCandy, Quinny and Maxi-Cosi.


Pushchairs with a premium performance, not premium price

When buying a buggy, what is it you look for? Top performance? Yes. Great features? Yep. Good looks? Yeah. Budget-blowing price? Nope, that’s definitely one thing new parents and parents-to-be can do without. With this in mind, we’ve found 10 fab buggies that cost less than £350. But it’s not just price that’s led us to picking these pushchairs – all featured here have scored 4-star, 4.5-star or full 5-star reviews.


We’re not saying £350 is budget by any means, but in today’s pushchair market, where buggies can easily cost over £500, these models, ranging from £270 to £349.90, offer decent value given their great performance.

The price of each of these buggies can vary depending on where you purchase it. This means the figures shown here are a rough starting guide based on what deals we spotted at the time of publishing. It also proves you should shop around as much as possible. There are great offers to be had, but make sure you weigh up the bargain against how reputable the website or retailer is – it won’t be such a good deal if you get nothing for your money. Also check what’s included in the price – is there a raincover, or will this cost extra? Can you use the buggy from birth, or will you need to purchase the optional carrycot? All these extras add up.

For truly budget options, head to our 10 of the best buggies for less than £150 and 10 of the best buggies for less than £250. Finally, make sure you read out buggy buyer’s guide before you purchase a thing.
