Joovy Caboose "Sit 'N' Stand" vs Kolcraft Contours Double Stroller

Has anyone bought either of these? I checked them both out today at Babies R Us and am leaning toward the caboose. I originally wanted the Baby Trend version,which has more storage space, but I like that this one pushes like an actual stroller, rather than a double.

The two I am most interested in are: Kolcraft Contours Options Tandem and Chicco Cortina Together Double If you have either of these, here are the questions I hope someone can answer: 1. Does it hold a Baby Trend Flexloc car seat? 2. Does it fit in the trunk of a small car (we have a 2000 Mazda Protoge)? I wish I could get the Baby Trend (the one with 2 seats), but I tried at BrU and it does not fit in the trunk. I told...
