Or you want to take the stroller especially when you travel, then it should be folded well fit into the trunk so that you do not have space for extra luggage. What is the size of the stroller is folded together.

Do you live in the countryside or in the city?

If you live in the country, then you should forgo a buggy. This is generally not suitable for dirt roads and gravel.

If you live in the city you should put more on agility, to come with the stroller through narrow passages in the stores.
