Hello there pushchair gurus!

We currently have a Bugaboo Cameleon which I love because it is such an easy push, and has great suspension, BUT my daughter's nursery has no room to store such a big stroller.

So I am looking for your recommendations for a pushchair that:
- folds down small (and easy) like a Maclaren but
- which is an easy push as the nursery is perched on top of a very very steep hill!!
- There are lots of curbs and little steps on the way too so ideally I need good suspension
- I still need a shopping basket (I rejected the Silver Cross Halo as it didnt have a viable one)

The shop assistants I have quizzed say this is an impossible ask. Can you help?

My four choices would be the Baby Jogger City Mini, the Baby Jogger Elite, and the bouncy Maxi Cosi Noa, but I doubt the latter has a big enough shopping basket or can stand up to lots of steps. But we accidentally left a huge basket on the handle and it didn't flinch when DD got out; and the Babyhome Emotion Xtreet which has a good basket, small fold but not sure about suspension.

hmmmmm
Depends what you mean by 'big' stroller - the Maxi Cosi Mura's fold up small for such a big beast, but chunky iykwim, not long lengthways.
It has big wheels and suspension, I found it great going up hills but I had a newborn so can't comment with a toddler.
Have a look at the fold, because whilst it's small for the size of it and smaller than most with the same big wheelers, it's not 'small' like a maclaren.
How about the maxi cosi Elea? Folds up small, big back wheels but small wheelspan, folds in one piece, suspension...
I'm on a real maxicosi kick wink.
There's the Mountain Buggy Swift, too, but you'll have to look at the folds on all of them tbh, umbrella strollers in general have little/no suspension and are shit for hills, ime.

Have you tried the Out n About Nipper 360? Or a Mountain Buggy Breeze or Swift? I'm not sure how small they are folded though.
