    Can you get any groceries, other gear in the back of your rolla with the pram? Just trying to imagine what can fit in that space atm

    Fair call about going to shops and trying to chuck a range of prams in, didn't think of that at all, thank you!
    We've only got the one child for the next couple of months, but I was able t o fit a fortnight's shopping in my car - some in the boot on top of the pram, and the rest on the back seat. The parcel shelf also moves if there's too much height wise, or you can take it right out.

    When DD was older, we got a reclineable stroller to keep in the car, which was longer than the pram, and had to go in the boot on the diagonal, but I was then able to put all the shopping in the boot - freeing up,the back seats.

    Good luck on your hunt, and let me know if you've got any more questions

    My friend has a corolla hatchback, plus two car seats. She has a mountain buggy. Not sure which one though lol. The smaller one. City? I'll ask.

    We have a Phil and teds smart buggy + peanut bundle.
    The peanut is a removable bassinet.
    It is the easiest pram to fold and unfold, no bending over, and it is super light.
    It doesn't take up much room because it folds flat so you can put shopping and stuff on top of it too!
    I swear by it, plus I think it's cute!

    There is no way it could, it is firmly in the boot with the wheels hooked over the seat. It would be less a risk than having it loose in a hatchback.

    I have a Bugaboo Gecko (older Bugaboo version) and a Bee and both fit great in our small BMW. Sometimes I don't bother putting the shopping in the boot but on the front seat or on the floor in the back.

    The Bee is a fantastic stroller and would be perfect.

    Thanks all for the great responses... Muchly appreciated

    You've given me some good ideas for brands to go and research (this is a whole new world to me lol) and I'm feeling a lot better about the space the corolla has to lug everything around in yay!

    My mountain buggy swift fits into the boot of a Barina. It is a lightweight pram, easy to fold and unfold and fits through a checkout with ease. I absolutely love it! You can buy several jogger brands that are smaller in size and easily fit into a hatchback.

    Oh and we also considered the Combi range- they are super small, I doubt there is a boot they couldn't fit into!
