My parents bought me the Graco Vivo Travel System when I was pregnant with my third child two and a half years ago. The model I have is a very dark charcoal grey with a turquoise trim.
It comes with a car seat and a cosy toes to keep the baby warm when using the pram without the car seat.
This pram is a very light weight and easy to use pram with a brake which is a push lever on the back wheel, it also has swivel front wheels which you can lock when you don't want to use. You can also adjust the height of the handle with a switch which is in the middle of the handle itself, a very useful feature for us as my husband is six foot tall and I am five foot four.
Graco claim that you will be able to fold this pram up with just one hand and although technically possible it is not easy to do and I'm not sure would be possible whilst holding a baby, how ever in saying that it is a very easy to fold up pram with the use of both hands. When this pram is folded it stands up on it's own when your sorting the baby out and when folded is a nice compact size which easily fitted into the boot of my ford focus with room for a few shopping bags.
When we first got the pram we used to take my son in the easy to clip on car seat which you can use from birth which is a very useful feature, the pram itself is suitable for use from four months which is fine as my son who was not a small baby was happy to be in the car seat on the pram for at least six months.
When he did eventually progress in to the pram itself there is a multi position back rest which is good but doesn't recline all the way to a flat position. There is a black plastic play tray with a cup holder which is handy as the baby gets older to keep him/her busy when your out doing your shopping.
There is a very big basket underneath the pram in which you can easily store two or three shopping bags.

A good travel system for those who are on the taller side as the adjustable handle goes higher than many I tried. The car seat simply "pops" on which makes life much easier and also comes with a base for leaving in the car. The pushchair doesn't lay completely flat, but was suitable from around 4 months and the carry cot that comes with it is great from birth (although if you have a larger baby you may find they grow out of the carrycot sooner rather than later). It is very easy to handle and is great for darting around the supermarket one handed. Unfortunately, the seat does not go completely up right, which once baby is sitting unaided can restrict them somewhat and if you're using a raincover (which doesn't come as standard) and have the changing bag attached the seat does not recline. All in all a good value for money system that could easily see you through the early years, although you will probably want to opt for a lighter stroller once baby is about 9 months as the travel system is still reasonably bulky and heavy when folded.
All the luxury of the QuattroTour, but only 75% of the size, so it's more manoeuvrable. It's stylish & lightweight, and when folded there's still room for all the shopping in the boot too. Features: Reclining Back / Adjustable Handle Height.
