Small stroller for the boot of the car

I'm a CM and almost have my perfect collection of buggies.
I currently have a P&T Vibe double for the car, an ABC inline triple for walking and a maclaren quest for quick trips out in the car.
My car has the most ridiculously small boot when the rear seats are up so anything I buy must have a small fold.
The Maclaren is on its last legs and I'm toying with the idea of replacing it before it falls apart.
Any suggestions? I did have a bugaboo bee which I loved but it didn't fit in the boot so anything similar would be great. I like the idea of the babyzen Yoyo but not sure I can justify the price.

Justify the price :)
Failing that look at the Casual Play Livi but at this stage you would have to import one from Europe.
A Baby Jogger - City Mini or CMGT would probably fit in too - they are very flat and even flatter with the wheels popped off (easy peasy).

I might keep looking out for a yoyo on eBay then . In reality, the quest has probably got years of life left so there's no immediate rush...I just want to swap it!
I'll have a look at the casual play livi.
I'm not keen on babyjoggers. I know they are very popular and I'm not sure what it is that stops me from wanting to try one. My friend has a double and has to remove all sorts to get it to fit in her boot (same car as mine). It needs to be as easy as possible to get it in and out of the car...the vibe fits with the wheels off but it's a bit of a pain to get wheels off and on when it's raining and we're rushing to school!

Also, what is the seat size like?
My friend has a Quicksmart which I sat mindee in the other day and her head was far higher than the seat back (she was asleep at the time!).

The Yoyo seat size? Its on the short size, but my nearly 3 year old naps in ours fine. His head isn't hanging off the back yet!

I loved the livi, it's great but like the yoyo i wouldn't use it everyday, it's not designed for it. I have used and abused my babyhome emotion xtreet for 3 years over 2 children, including spells of daily use and it's the only pushchair ever to stand the test of time here.
But crucially, how deep is the boot space? I'm not sure it would fold flat enough, if it did then it's hard to beat imo.
