pram for a 7 month old onwards

Currently I have a quinny zapp xtra2 and I mainly have this because I have a very small boot. The zapp xtra2 was one of the few that would fit. However I'm getting a new car, a 4x4, so can revise my pram choice. The reason I'd consider this is because the zapp is fairly rickety and for anything but city terrains provides a fairly bumpy ride. I also have a knackered bugaboo gecko which I keep at the house for pushing my baby around the house and in nearby streets (ie I don't take it in the car - I couldn't even if I wanted to it wouldn't fit). However I have used the bugaboo on some pebbled, stony terrains and it is infinitely superior to the zapp but several things about it could lead to madness...the folding down mechanism is appalling, no/poor sunshade, its too close to the ground, etc. So I've cobbled together a home and away travel system using these 2 prams but want to change them...the bugaboo is knackered & the zapp's days are numbered now that I have the prospect of a bigger boot
Anyway I'm in the market for a new pram. These are my criteria:
It must suit more than urban terrain so pebbles, shale, cobbles but not an all terrain pram (too heavy & unwieldy)
Easy folding mechanism
not too heavy
little propensity to tip
easy buckled & sturdy buckles ...not ones that get twisted at the drop of a hat
Any ideas ladies?

We're about to adopt and have bought the Jane trider on recommendation from a few friends. We did need all terrain but also wanted something that we could use around the shops too. Obviously not used yet as still waiting but very impressed with the design and quality. Only thing is the basket is quite small. I love that the swag is nice and high and is a doddle to switch either forward or rear facing. It has a really simple fold mechanism and its a doddle to push being so light and turns on a sixpence.

I'm recommending an easywalker mosey, because that's what's I'm recommending for everything at the moment! I think if you are in and out of the car quite a bit you might appreciate a one piece fold that isn't too huge or heavy.

The baby jogger city versa fits all your criteria except weight, might be worth having a feel to see if it's too heavy for you

Thank you. The main contenders are the uppababy vista and easywalkermosey. Anyone had experience of both of these and if so which is better?
