We have a Ford Fiesta, in terms of boot space it didn't have much difference from our previous BMW 316 strangely enough. I was very intriged to see how the Sky would fit in our car, as with our other buggy we have to remove the rear wheels of the frame in order to fit it in.
The Sky is pretty much the same, taking up almost the same amount of space, however it will fit without taking any of the wheels of, if placed in a certain way. See picture below
Using the Sky as a travel system, definitely makes things so much easier when you have a newborn and older child ( even if you have just your newborn too ). The frame is so easy to fold and unfold, with almost both actions using just one hand!
|Car Seat with the Base for the Sky Frame|
We tried using the old fashion way of securing the car seat in the car by just using the seat belts, but both me and my partner didn't feel it was that secure. That is not saying it isn't but we are used to using a car seat base with our other car seat. So we got the base to go with the car seat and it does make a difference.
It felt more solid and secure using the base, but again that is just our opinion and preference.
Using the car seat base also makes life a lot easier, as it simply just clicks in, and the lifts out when lifting up the lever at the back of the car seat. So if it raining, or you got other children you haven't got to spend time striping the car seat to the car using the seat belts.
