In a Nutshell
The UK’s best-selling model for the last four years, this luxurious pram-cum-pushchair doesn’t require a separate carrycot to keep baby snuggly. Add a Silver Cross Ventura car seat (£115) and you have a top travel system.
This is, essentially, an aluminium chassis with the remainder comprised of fabric-based parts available in four colours. The bundled cosytoes, changing bag and raincover add real value.
The Silver Cross can be used from birth. It converts from pram to chair without fuss – this takes two hands – and it folds easily. The 3D handles well on smoother terrain and, at 10kg, is lighter than it looks.
Adjustable handles and a giant shopping basket complete an impressive package. Even so, it’s the overall feeling of quality this exudes which makes it such a smart value and popular choice.
The basket is a bit fiddly to access and the wheels may struggle on off-road adventures. Once folded, it’s bulkier than some.
