Anyone here got a Phill & Teds Explorer and fitted into the Fabia boot ?

Tried an Audi A1 at the weekend. No chance :(

Not had a Phil and Teds but did have an XTS Twister that went in a Mk1 Fabia Estate boot lengthways...

I can get a Phil and teds sport double (the red one) in the back of my fabia 1 by only removing one of the back wheels which is a total doddle. It goes in on a slight angle.
Once it's in there I can still get the rest of the kids bags etc in there and a few bags of shopping.
I don't know if the fabia 2 has a bigger boot than mine but it gives you an idea :)

I can get an Out 'n' About Nipper 360 single in the back of my 2011 vRS as long as the 2 rear wheels come off which is dead easy to do. It will fit easily and luggage can then fit on top without much hassle. The Phil and Teds Explorer looks like a relative copy of the Out 'n' About so I wouldn't imagine you would have much of a problem.

Never had a phil and teds but I can get a city jogger in the back of my fabia sport hatch. Fits pretty well, no need to take any wheels off, just goes straight in and can fit other bags in and around it.

If you want a car of that ilk with a comodious boot Fabia estate and Ibiza ST really the only options. Problem with Phil and Teds pushchairs is that they are all pretty large, if you manage to fit one in a supermini you'll be left with little boot space.

Do you have time to take the pram around various dealers and explain that you want to see if it fits in various models?
