Help me find a new pram!

My little girl is 6 months old, the pram we have had since birth is the Mamma's and Papa's pliko pramette with the car seat.

I absolutely love it, we use it as a carrycot 90% of the time although as little one is now 6 months will most likely be changing her to forward facing shortly anyway, we also use it with the car seat when out and about.

The problem is my partner passed her driving test a few weeks ago and we now have a car smile A clio, and the pram does not fit in the boot without spendind 10 minutes twisting, turning and wedging it in.

So we need a new one!

I want something as similar to the pliko as possible because we do like it, but it needs to be smaller folding. The carrycot part isn't too important as baby proberly wouldn't have been in it much longer anyway, but it must be suitable from birth as although she is 6 months she is very small and still very newborn like.

Ideally I would like one that fits our current carseat but realise this may be impossible.

I don't want one that needs wheels, seat etc. removing to fold and fit as it's too much of a pain when in and out the car a lot as we often are.

I also don't have a lot to spend, maybe £100 max.

Is there anything out there that would suit??

It looks like the Clio has a fairly reasonable sized boot. I would think with your budget you would need to look second hand unless you just want a cheap umbrella type stroller?
There have been some cheap Britax B-Agile's floating around on Ebay at present. There is a B-Mobile for £130 at Precious Little one if you can stretch the budget. If you could find £150 odd then there were some new Baby Jogger City Mini's on Babys R Us earlier today - I think its worth the stretch, and if not look on Ebay for a second hand one. Maybe a Zapp Xtra but I would have a look at one first.

It does yes but we want an umbrella fold like the Pliko and they seem to be too long.

Will look at the one's you have suggested, thanks

What year clio? I had a 98 one and just upgraded to an 09.

I could get a huge double in the boot of the 98 Clio. Although I did have to remove the parcel shelf.

I've also had a silver cross 3d(almost identical to your one) in the boot of the 98 clio.
