Car Boot Size

(5 Posts)

I wonder if any of you ladies can help me with car boot sizes. Basically I need to buy a new car, but want to check the size first, to make sure I can fit the pram in that I want. I can get the volume capacity of the car boots on the appropriate websites but cant actually find any length/width type measurements.

The cars are:

Vauxhall Corsa

Citreon C3

Fiat Punto

Fiesta

Honda Jazz


Anybody drive any of these that can help me out?


I know I can get the pram measurements online, and the prams i'm tossing up between are:

Silvercross Freeway or 3D

Mothercare My4

Obaby Zezu

Mamas & Papas Pliko

If anyone has any experience of fitting either pram into any of the above cars I'd really appreciate hearing about it. Thanks in advance ladies.

All of those cars have tiny boots.

Silver cross freeway not a hope in hell - mine only just fits and I have a much bigger car. 3D may fit if you turn the wheels in (yes had that one too). Pliko near identical but half the weight and half the quality (had two of them). Mothercare weighs a ton, think you can take wheels off but pain to do that every time and very bulky, doubt it will fit, obaby - do not touch with bargepole.

My friend who had a punto had a 2 piece fold and had to put one of the pieces on front seat/footwell!

Don't get a Corsa - I've got one at the moment and the boot is TINY. I can just about squeeze my labrador in there and that's it.

we went to a big used car centre with our pram and tried fitting it as many cars as possible

I have a Corsa and can fit in a Silver Cross Linear chassis with the lid off the boot. Can't fit the pram body though. I just bring the chassis and put the car seat on for short trips. Use a Graco stroller for longer trips.
