Hi all, first timer here just starting to research prams and gear.
We have a 2010 Corolla hatch... Which always seemed like a plenty big car to me but not feeling so sure now that bubs is on the way and all my friends with children have epically big SUV's and wagons (did I mention I hate massive cars!?)
Anyhow I'm after some pram recommendations for the 'rolla that'll also allow me to fit a few bags of shopping in too.
I'm pretty keen on a bugaboo bee+ as a ballpark guide.
Let me know your experiences with prams and cars that are of a similar size, thx!

Prams that'll fold into a Corolla hatchback + fit shopping bags.

I could fit a Steelcraft Eden pram in the boot of our Corolla, it just needed to go in wheels up . It's handy having the anchors on the back of the seat, it frees up a lot of boot space. A lot of places will let you try them for size in your car before you buy

Fwiw... Planning on getting a Chariot Cougar also as a pram to leave at home to take jogging and bike riding (eventually) around our area, so the pram that lives in the Corolla really just needs to be compact, space saving, foldable for trips to shops, eating out and stuff like that.

The Bee is incredible, I couldn't recommend it more. Suitable from birth, compact yet sturdy, lovely ride on good suspension, beautiful to push, and lasts and lasts.
I had DS2 (a 90th percentile child) in it until he was 3 and a half. I've also had mine since 2007 and it still looks great
ETA We have a Golf and I have no trouble fitting the Bee and grocery shopping in around it.

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!

I have a bugaboo cameleon and we drive a falcon which has a huge boot. I can fit the bugaboo in and maybe a few bags of shopping. We have used it in a Cruz as well, which I would say has a medium sized boot and you have to do some rearranging to fit it in. In my opinion it would be too big for your car as it folds down in two parts, not one, so it takes up a lot of space. Sorry I can't answer for the bee..although I'm guessing it will take up less space.

Any umbrella style stroller will fit in a hatch boot, if you stand it upright with the front wheels and handles over the back seat, we have taken off the rear driver side head rest and that's where our maclaren stroller lives, which leaves plenty of room for shopping and if we need to use the seat we just lay the stroller flat in the boot.
