What fits in the boot of a Ford KA?

I'm looking for a rear facing ( if possible) pram, suitable from birth and that I can occasionally attach a car seat to.
The problem is that it needs to fit in my Ford KA boot.
This is number 3 and the 1st time I have been able to drive. In the past I've always had a good walking pram. I'm confused this time round.

Oh, sorry, I forgot to say the budget is no more than £350

Bugaboo Bee?

I've had a Bugaboo Chameleon and a Phil&Teds in ours. Not at the same time, obviously.

You can get a reasonable sized on in as long as the wheels are detachable.

I thought about the Bee and Cameleon but I don't want to spend that much if I can help it. I don't really want anything as big as the P&T ( and I don't want to use it again smile)

Second hand bugaboos are often available at bargin prices, well over here at least. I'd be surprised if you could couldn't get a Frog (old model but live the cam) within your budget.

I'm not one for labels at all but bugaboos are a fantastic example of functional design. Really they are.

I had a Frog for DD2. I was hoping for something a bit less obvious this time. I'm a bit of a pramaholic but this time I won't have the money to fund my cravings. I want to get it right 1st time( I know that's unlikely to happen).
I quite like the Jane Solo reverse. I have a Slalom so thought that may be ok with the new Strata seat.

No idea about Slalom I'm afraid, I've managed to keep my addictive personality in check where prams are concerned grin It very nearly went wrong with nappies though...

I had a ford ka with my second child and chose an out n about nipper (single). It fitted into boot easily, but i had to take the wheels off( only a 2 second job and very easy). Loved the pram and now they are even better because the front wheel can be fixed or swivel.

sorry its forward facing!

ICandy Apple fits in the boot with the wheels off - seat unit fits too if you jiggle it about a bit
