Does anyone know of a travel system with car seat, carrycot and pushchair attachments that will fit into the small boot space of a Fiat 500?

Try these, they were the shortlist we came up with (we have a Suzuki Swift). Be aware that a carrycot takes up masses of room in the boot, so it's worth looking at pushchairs which use a soft, flexible type of carrycot over the hard, large framed ones, and/or something which has a lie flat, parent facing seat you can use from birth. We tended to use the carrycot for walks directly from home.

Joie Chrome DLX
Cybex Balios S (not the new lux or 2 in 1, the original)
Maxi Cosi Adorra
Maxi Cosi Stella

I'd also now add to this list, 2 years in:
Joie Versatrax
Britax B-Agile M (no parent facing seat option though).
BabyJogger City Mini (again no parent facing seat)
Phil and Ted's Sport (no parent facing seat)
Some of the newer Maxi Cosi travel systems - I actually wish I'd got a Maxi Cosi from the start, love their prams!

Possibly (but I was never sure in the end):
Cosatto Woosh
Mutsy Evo - this is what we had and it fits, but only just. There are also things I disliked about it.

I recommend researching/buying your car seat separately.

Britax only takes Britax infant car seats.

The others take this list:
Maxi cosi
Most Joie seats

Kia picanto driver here. I just got creative with my oyster two. Pram frame went behind the drivers seat and carry cot in the front passenger seat. When he moved to the pram part that went into the boot.

Than you so much Bertie Botts and Nix2020 for responding.
Your information is totally invaluable and you have given me so much to consider.
This is my first time on this forum and I just knew it was the right place to come for knowledgable, tried and tested advice.
I am doing the leg work for my Daughter as it's her first child and she is over thinking everything.
Thanks again guys.
