Need reliable pram to fit small car boot

Parents
my family drives Nissan micra 06. The boot is rather small.
I need a pram that takes maxi cosi car seat ( can be with adapters) then converts to sitting up. BUT MUST FIT into small boot without being a hassle.

any ideas or recommendations?

I've got a stupid small car.

Mamas and papas sola a good one. Though back wheels need to come off

I would avoid having to remove wheels if possible. I'm not sure how small the micra boot is. The red kite zumi comes with maxi cosi adapters and is fairly small, the crucial dimension might be the width, which is 52cm. If you can accommodate that then it's a good pushchair. The new mountain buggy nano has inbuilt car seat adaptor, not sure if maxi cosi but you can check. A zapp xtra would definitely fit and takes the car seat. I think there will be a few others but not a huge amount.

The Mountain Buggy Nano does take a car seat. Its a clever pushchair but watch out for the low handle and the open mesh at the rear of the seat. An Oyster Gem would work well too. Would an umbrella fold fit because there are a number of umbrella folds which take a car seat.

Bugaboo bee every time.

City mini, I've always had the remove the wheels. It has never really bothered me.

i had a micra, i think it was 05, my phil and teds double fitted in the boot.

has yours got a slidy back seat?

i think with a micra it's the length that needs to be short, so as the P&T sort of folded in half it was a better fit than a maclaren which was still long
