Travel System that folds into the boot of a KA

Can anyone help? I am deperately seeking a good quality travel system that will fold into the boot of my car - an 51 plate Ford KA... when my DS was a baby the only pram that fit my boot was a Quinny Zapp and I had to wait until he was 6 months old before I could use it. I am now pregnant again and need a a travel system that will carry the baby from birth and allow my now 5 year old in the back in his car seat (before I put him in the front passenger seat and flattened my back seat so the pram -a bulky Britax - would fit. I haven't got that option this time as I'll be carrying 2 x children in the car).

A Zapp Xtra?? It's suitable from birth with the main seat and car seat options.

Here are some suggestions for you and their folded dimensions. You may find that some will fit if you remove one or two wheels first.

Quinny Zapp 26x26x69
Quinny Zapp Xtra 26x42x95
Jane Rider 38x60x68
Bugaboo Bee+ 31x43x88
Nuna Pepp 26x55x73 (the new version-the old ones aren't suitable from birth)
Silver Cross Halo 32x52x82
OBaby Edge 35x55x85

My Child Versa 31x62x89 (also rebranded by Baby Weavers, Kiddicare, John Lewis and probably others)

And one more:
Baby Jogger City Mini 25x61x79

I'm thinking that you'll be able to put these on their side in your boot, maybe with the parcel shelf off. I'd measure your boot to rule some out and then go and have a look at the others in real life to see if they fit and you like them.

The Oyster apparently fits as does the Maxi Cosi Streety.

Believe it or not the bugaboo cameleon fits. I had to get mine in my sisters car and I took a wheel off and it fitted nicely. Parcel shelf went on too if I took the bumper bar off.

I had that horrible monstrous Mothercare/Graco one and it fir my little Fiesta with the parcel shelf out.

That said, why a travel system?

My sil has a loola, so its just a frame with the carseat and tiny, then she stuck the seat unit behind the passenger seat as it concetina folds (sp)

Baby jogger citi mini is half price on kiddicare - I just spied an advert FYI

Tiggywunkle Thu 24-Nov-11 14:51:20

Where was the advert? I can only find 37% off a Micro on their website although I wonder if you get the 12% off as well? But the Micro isn't as good as the Mini.

I just looked and couldn't find it either!

Maxi cosi mura 3 fits the boot of my Panda but had to take the parcel shelf out...maclaren stroller fits nicely now with plenty of room to spare!

newbroom Fri 02-Dec-11 13:34:02

I have a Ka and a Mothercare My4 pram - you can get the frame in the boot (taking the wheels off), then a toddler and baby seat in the back seats and the carrycot part on the front passenger seat. This means you have to put the carrycot on the floor when you get the kids in/out, but it will all fit (just!).

What's your price range

Serafinaaa Thu 18-Dec-14 21:42:43

Oyster 2 definitely fits. Parcel shelf off, on its side. You don't need to remove any wheels. I'm not sure if it fits without removing the seat though. I've only tried it with the seat unit removed and placed into the boot alongside the chassis.

My quinny buzz fits in the boot of my 2003 ka. Only just, I take the big back wheels off (but they pop right off so it doesn't make much difference) and you can't fit much else in, but does fit.
