Double Stroller for Twins - Recommenations

Ideally under $400, hopefully fit two newborns in or out of car seats (probably different brands of seats if the stroller won't accommodate newborns in the actual stroller), has to fold easily and small enough to fit in a small sedan trunk, and probably a side by side stroller - but would have to be narrow. It can be from the US or Canada.

I still have my old stroller, which I love, and if I found a great stroller that wouldn't fit newborns I could make due with the single until the twins are old enough. I'll spend a lot of time walking my daughter to and from school and I would like to have a double for that, but still plan to use my single stroller we need the car for errands and stuff.

One stroller we have in min is the Zooper Tango which is only $200 on clearance, 30" wide, and it fits in our trunk while still fitting the hockey bag and more on top. The other is the Mountain Buggy Duet - I haven't looked at this stroller in person yet, and it's much more than I want to spend, but I love the 25" width.

I would love to hear from anyone who has experience with either stroller, and what double you have and why you love it!

The folding looked like a lot of steps, lol! But I guess you get used to it?

I have a Zooper Tango - the '08 version & we frequently used the accessories when our twins rode in it. The canopy is AMAZING! The rain cover & foot muff were both super user friendly & worked great. But, I wish I would have chosen an Indi Twin Bumbleride instead. The Zooper did not travel well through thick mulch walking trails or the dirt paths at our zoo.

Thank you so much for this! I really like the Zooper and I think it would be great for newborns,, but I'm only buying one stroller and you helped me realize that this one won't cut it for me over the long term.

I really like what I've seen of the City Mini, love the way it folds! The website says it reclines almost flat, but one review said that it reclines flat for a newborn - what are your thoughts on that? I'm unsure if I would get the carseat attachment, or just wait until the twins are older to use it.

It's not a jogging stroller, but does it do okay for jogging?
