Advice on which stroller for 1 year old: smallish, lies fairly flat, sits up straight, big basket...

DS is just coming up to a year. We've been happy with our iCandy Cherry but would like something that folds a bit smaller to take up less room in the boot now. It doesn't need to fold up tiny but I'd like it not to have a separate seat unit - or at least for the seat unit to fold up without removing it.

I want it to lie pretty flat for naps, also DS likes to sit up straight, not reclined so it'd be good if the seat did this. Big basket for all our stuff needed too...

Any ideas??

Baby Jogger City Mini (maybe a second hand 2011 one with Sit upright Straps)?
A Graco Evo Mini?

The point I struggle with, with all pushchairs is that a good chunk of parents need a big basket for their "stuff" and manufacturers win points with me for a big basket. But trying to find smaller pushchairs with a big basket is hard. Then on top of that finding a pushchair with a really upright seat is even harder! Plus a Cherry really isnt that big folded, and it can take as long to faff with a more complex fold, than it does to pop the seat off and on some pushchairs.

I have a kiddicare own brand stroller that lives in my car boot, i only use the big pram for walking now. It has a massive basket, it folds very small and it sits up and also fully reclines. Originally purchased as holiday buggy to go on the plane but now ds is bigger i use it more.

Mamas and papas have bought out a new one called the Armadillo. It folds really small but is still a good size buggy. If I hadn't have bought my maclaren quest I would have bought one, oh well!

I have just got a Graco Evo Mini and I am really surprised how good it is. The seat is absolutely bolt upright when pulled tight. My son loves it. I managed to transfer him in for a nap today (he was already asleep) and he slept in it comfortably. All round I am very surprised by what a good pushchair it is. TBH Graco really seem to have upped their game recently. The Evo is excellent and the Evo Mini does exactly what a small folding pushchair should do. I want an Armadillo next though!
