Silver Cross has been a brand both the British royal family, and people have trusted for decades and a full century. They always deliver quality products.
They do just that with their strollers, buggies, and prams. For this review, I decided to take on this Silver Cross children pram, the Silver Cross Coast stroller.
Giving you a detailed review of the pros and point out the cons. I will also compare it with other popular prams to see the Coast value in the market.

Silver Cross Children Pram: Stroller + Carrycot Review.
Product: Silver Cross Coast Bundle.
Size of the Product: L102cm x W60cm x H99cm. (Weight With Seat Unit: 14.4kg). (Weight With Carry Cot: 15.1kg).
Delivery: Free. Many options.
My Rating: 9.5/10.
Before beginning to explain the details did you know that this stroller can carry three people. It can’t only convert to a double stroller, but with the purchase of a Silver Cross buggy board, you can add another child into the journey.
It will save you a lot of time and money. Now let’s begin. The Coast pushchair is suitable from 6 months up to 15kg which is around 3 years of age.
You can use the carrycot from birth, which I will come back to later on. The seat unit can face you or the world, so it has forward and rear-facing options.
I will advise you to have your baby facing you for up to 6 months. It’s for privacy and to keep them secure. It has a 5 point harness system with chest pads.
It straps the legs, hips and of course chests. To keep them from falling off or for your toddler to move around. It offers three positions.
A nearly lie-flat position, nap position and an upright position. These are there to help both baby and toddler feel comfortable in whatever state they are in.
Whether they are playing or sleeping comfort can help a lot. The Coast stroller also has a footrest for them to rest their feet while sleeping and 4 position calf rest as well.
It has the same benefit. Moving on to the canopy, you have a large canopy with a sun visor, UPF50+ Water and sun protection and a ventilation system to allow airflow.
The Silver Cross Coast Canopy is also designed with a peek a boo window with a magnetic cover. You can view your baby or toddler without waking them up (No noise is made).
Silver Cross also offers you are reversible seat liner. The fabrics are well designed with palettes to offer a quality and modern look. Moving on to the chassis/frame you have sleek black chassis. Nicely designed and catchy.
It’s a light chassis compared to some other similar strollers. You also have a removable bumper bar and an adjustable handlebar. The bar has four adjustable positions. (Perfect for tall parents).
A large basket underneath as well. For the single-mode, the basket is easily reachable on both sides. Whether you only use the stroller seat or with the accessories.
All suspension wheels to make life easier. The folding is two way. You can’t fold it with the carrycot.
The carrycot also has the same features on its canopy just like the seat unit. It has a cover to keep the baby warm and covered.
Silver Cross has reported the carrycot to have other benefits such as it can be used for an overnight sleeping place. Because of the Bamboo fabrics, it has airflow and a soft mattress.
It also has antibacterial fabrics. Keeping baby safe. Put the cot near your bed after they have fallen asleep. You are also able to buy a stand to use.
If you want them high up this feature delivers just that. The cot is suitable for up to 6 months. The whole pram mode comes in more than one colour and a universal rain cover is always available.
Silver Cross Coast Stroller: Convertible Mode.
As I mentioned above this pram or stroller can be converted into a double mode for twins, or children of different ages. It offers 17 different configurations which is a lot.
You can buy another carrycot and a car seat to turn into a double mode. With adapters of course. It’s a tandem pushchair and not a side to side which I think you are aware of.
These are some of the possibilities It has:
- 2 seat units.
- 2 car seats.
- 2 carrycots.
- 1 seat unit and 1 carrycot or car seat.
- 1 carrycot and 1 car seat.
These can be top of each other, face forward or rear, etc. It creates more bonding time and if you want them separate you have that as well.
Travel System Mode: Simplicity Plus Car Seat + Isofix Base.
This car seat is suitable from birth for up to 13kg which is around 12 months, but it can be 15 months depending on your baby’s height.
It comes with an ergonomic handlebar, head hugger which is perfect for newborns, newborn inner layers that are adjustable and 5 point harness system.
It has a UPF50+ Canopy to protect your little one from the sun. Covers as well. Of course, let me not forget about the side impact protection it has.
Designed to bounce off things and keep baby safe. These parts can be removed to be washed or adjusted. With the adapters you able to use the seat with the Silver Cross Coast chassis, and also all other Silver Cross pushchairs.
The Isofix base makes it safer to use the seat in the car. According to the manufacturers, it is easy to fix with a one-click mechanism.
You have four indicators showing you if you have fixed it correctly or not.
- Highly expensive. (It’s cheaper with the bundle than buying all separately.
- Double mode is more expensive.
- Only available in few colours.
- Very heavy with pushchair and carrycot, which means it’s not easy to carry and travel with.
- It does not offer all-terrain wheels and swivel lockable wheels.
- It does not also offer punctured proof tyres.
Silver Cross Coast Pram vs Other Popular Pram/Stroller.
By just reading above you can see that this pram system does offer a lot. The Coast stroller is well-liked and searched by many parents, which makes it have competitors.
Other strollers parents also search for are the ABC Design Salsa 4 Air Stroller and Cybex Gazelle S stroller. I chose these because I have already reviewed them.
One is a single pram system and the other is just like this one single to double stroller. Let’s see how well it does with these two examples.
Silver Cross Coast Pram vs ABC Design Salsa 4 Air Stroller.
Not that similar in design, but both have quality and modern looks. Designed with top quality fabrics and materials. These are the other similarities:
- Both are suitable from birth with either a car seat or carrycot.
- Forward and rear-facing.
- Adjustable seats.
- 5 point harness system.
- Removable bumper bar.
- Adjustable handlebar with leather made.
- Large shopping basket.
- Carrycots can be used for overnight sleep.
- Carrycots have covers and airflow.
- Carrycots Offers sunshade.
So, they do have many similarities which are the main ones. What differs is the Salsa 4 Air Stroller has an adjustable and removable footrest, removable wheels and swivel lockable wheels.
The wheels are also air-filled and it has a transport lock, which means it can be locked to keep the stroller steady. It also offers a backrest and the seat is suitable for up to 4 years around 22kg.
However, it weighs 14.5kg which is more and it’s more expensive. As seen above the Coast pram also offers good things.
It has Bamboo fabrics on carrycot which offer antibacterial fabrics, it has a peek a boo window, UPF50+ protection and sun visor. A reversible seat liner and adjustable calf rest instead.
It also offers more designed fabrics and materials. Both take the first spot because of the features.
Silver Cross Coast Pram vs Cybex Gazelle S Stroller.
A bit similar in style but of course separate design. These are the similarities they share:
- Multiple reclining positions.
- Large basket.
- Double convertible.
- Reclining positions on calf rest/legrest.
- 5 point harness system.
- Peek a boo window.
- Travel System convertible.
- Adjustable handlebar
- Bumper bar.
- One system brake.
- Excellent fabrics.
- Forward and rear-facing.
Many similarities indeed. However, in addition to these the Gazelle S stroller offers age suitability from birth with the seat. You have swivel wheels and extra head inner layers to keep the baby or toddler comfortable.
It’s suitable for up 4 years, offers one-hand fold and push. A bigger hood with XXL UPF50+ protection and underneath and upper basket.
The Silver Cross coast stroller has a removable bumper bar, a ventilation system, magnetic peek a boo window, reversible seat liner, leather made handlebar and the chassis is more designed.
It’s way cheaper as well, but the Gazelle S is lighter at 12.6kg. The Gazelle is slightly better with the single and double mode, but the Silver Cross Coast stroller still has its fans.
It’s choosable by many.
One of the Best Children Prams.
Do you agree that this travel system does offer one of the best features and qualities? It has everything your baby will need during their journey.
You are only missing a changing bag which can be bought separately. Although highly expensive it does have the features to make up for it and these are long-lasting features and accessories.
An example is the Simplicity Car Seat which won an award, and now they offer you an upgraded one. What three things do you love about this travel system?
