Lightweight baby strollers have come a long way from the basic umbrella stroller! Today's lightweight strollers have many of the same features as larger strollers, but the pared down versions are much easier for travel and quick trips to the mall or zoo. Here are several great options for 2016 that are lightweight, 20 pounds or less, but feature-heavy, allowing your baby to ride in style. All of these compact strollers should be easy to stash in a trunk without taking up too much space.

The City Mini weighs less than 17 pounds and has nearly every feature you could want in any stroller. The quick fold is amazing, just lift the strap in the seat and it's done. The suspension system, reclining seat and large sun shade make it a comfy ride for your baby. At about $250, this stroller costs much less than many strollers with fewer features!

Want an even lighter stroller? The UPPAbaby G-Luxe weighs less than 15 pounds, and has a sleek umbrella style frame with the slimmer fold to match. The frame is light but super-durable, and you can remove the whole seat pad to wash it. The G-Luxe stands on its own when folded and has a carry strap for travel.

The smooth, one-hand steering and turn-on-a-dime maneuverability are classic Maclaren, but the benefits of the Quest stroller don't stop with the wheels. There's also a full recline, removable and washable seat fabric, basket and storage pocket, quick fold, and included rain shield to make the 14-pound Quest worth strolling.

The Flite comes in at just under 14 pounds and under $200. It's sturdy and nimble on urban terrain, and has a decent-sized basket and sunshade, plus lockable swivel wheels and a nearly full recline. A universal car seat adapter bar is included with the stroller, which means you can use it as a travel system.

If storage space and easy-clean fabric are must-haves for your stroller, check out the Baby Cargo 200 Series. The basket is large for an umbrella stroller, there's a nice storage pocket on the back of the seat, and the fabrics are water- and stain-resistant. The 200 Series costs about $140, so it's a great value for a durable stroller that weighs under 14 pounds.

The Chicco Liteway offers a full recline, built-in infant boot, detachable storage basket and a solid frame for about $140. The seat reclines with one hand, and you can fold the stroller with one hand (and your foot), as well. The suspension system offers baby a smooth ride, and the steering is impressive for a budget-priced stroller. There's an upgraded version called the Liteway Plus (Buy on Amazon) that can be used as a travel system with the popular Chicco KeyFit 30 infant car seat.

The Yezz is built for a parent with specific stroller needs. It's super-compact and very lightweight, just 11 pounds. It has a nifty 3D fold and collapses with a one-hand mechanism. The high-performance plastic frame and sleek skate wheels mean it's made to withstand constant travel. If your stroller is your commuter vehicle or you travel with baby often, the Quinny Yezz may be the perfect stroller for you.

The Chicco C6 is a basic stroller with a much sturdier frame and better steering than many of the less-expensive umbrella strollers. It's really easy to maneuver this stroller in tight spaces. Unlike bare-bones umbrella strollers, the C6 includes a sunshade, a reclining seat and a small basket underneath. This stroller weighs only 11 lbs. and folds very small for storage. The price is nice, too - just $80.
