Help!! Need City + Country + compact buggy...

We used to have a uppababy vista which I loved but it is too wide for our house now (59cm width max).

Cruz is right in size (and we still have carrycot from vista we could use) but I've seen a lot of people talk about its hard suspension (which is not great for parks / country side walks). Any thoughts?

Bugaboo Bee would also fit, but it's really expensive! And is it sturdy for country walks?

Love the babyjoggers but can't find one that is narrow enough (and from birth)...

Any other brands I could look at which you recommend?

I have a cruz and really like it. I think they rectified the suspension issue with the 2015 model and changed the tyres. It was a bit bumpy in carrycot mode but I remember that being an issue with previous pushchairs.

I had the bee with DS2 & 3, I really liked it but I live in a city. It's really not a country walk type pushchair, the wheels are too small. The cruz would be marginally more suitable.

I had a baby jogger city mini as well (I have four kids hence lots of pushchairs) and liked that but you say it's too wide?

Cruz marginally more suitable so not great for parks either? To be honest while the vista was great it's not like it cld handle off terrain very well either (mud and leaves would get stuck in the wheels a lot)... but I need something that can comfortably handle paths and parks...

Baby jogger is 61cm sadly!

Thanks for replying!

Mountain Buggy Swift? Think it was the narrowest I could find, and does off-road stuff happily.

How off road? I've got an easywalker mosey and it copes fine with paths and parks - it's about 54cm wide and can even be driven up a bus aisle! It isn't a true off roader but it's managed all the mud, snow and crap I've used it on so far. Last weekend we used it on a walk in the woods and as long as we went slow it was fine.

Thank you so much, this is really really useful. Am checking out both Mountain Buggy and Easywalker (review here is incredible: www.bestbuggy.co.uk/2015/01/easywalker-mosey-review-by-best-buggy/) - both excellent looking choices.

Thank you so much I really appreciate you taking the time to respond!
