Snowploughs St Bees

There are a number of different types of snowploughs that you may see on the road. Though you probably won’t want a large vehicle with the snow blades, you may want something bigger than a snow shovel when the snow gets deep. Though spreaders might help, generally you’ll want to use a vehicle with snow blades to move a large amount of snow out of your way rather than spreaders to spread the snow into a larger area. On the other hand, if you’re working in a smaller area, a snow shovel will work better than a vehicle with snow blades. See below to locate snowploughs around St Bees.

AUDI A4 Allroad St Bees

Ten years ago, Audi’s quattro brand almost exclusively stood for high-performance sports cars in St Bees.

A revised tailgate and bumpers, plus new LED lights at the front and rear complete the major changes.

Audi R8 St Bees

Brilliant to drive, stunning to look at and wonderfully engineered, Audi’s first supercar is a masterpiece.

We can’t think of another car that provides as much space and pace as the RS6 Avant in St Bees. With a Lamborghini-derived V10 under the bonnet, the 572bhp Audi is the most powerful machine here, while its 565-litre boot also makes it the most practical. But buyers in this sector are a demanding bunch, so does the RS6 have what it takes?

Renault’s elegant Coupe version of the Laguna is eye-catching to say the least, especially with that Aston-esque rear. You have to upgrade to GT spec to experience the agility of the four-wheel-steering, but with top-end prices nearer £30k, it makes more sense with the cheaper 148bhp diesel.

BMW M6 Coupe St Bees

Although its technical abilities and performance can’t be faulted, the M6 in St Bees simply isn’t particularly rewarding or engaging to drive under normal conditions. This is exacerbated by the seven-speed semi-auto SMG gearbox, which has a jerky shift action that is uncomfortable for passengers and frustrating for the driver.

BMW X1 St Bees

Is this another BMW SUV in St Bees with the X Factor? Having taken the 4x4 world by storm a decade ago with the X5, and then reinventing the class with the coupé-styled X6, the German company knows a thing or two about carving a new niche.

Fiat 500 St Bees

Our definition of a top-class urban runabout is a model that fits in perfectly with a daily commute, is designed to slot into the tightest city spots and doesn’t make too many demands on your budget. The 500 scores on all counts – and then it adds retro styling into the bargain.

Tears, and there have been many, were shed when the delivery driver arrived to pick it up.

Ford Focus RS GGR 340 St Bees

Meet the car that makes the standard Focus RS in St Bees look like a pussycat! Ford’s rally-bred hatch rewrote the rulebook when it went on sale in March, by successfully pushing 301bhp through the front tyres – something no other road car has achieved without being plagued with torque steer.

Mazda 2 St Bees

I was delighted to discover that it’s actually here that it comes into its own. With a healthy 215Nm of torque the 2 never ran out of steam in St Bees, and made light work of last-minute manoeuvring, steep hills and middle-lane hoggers. Better still, a tall top gear means that mechanical noise is kept to a minimum when cruising.

Mazda 2 Sport 1.6D St Bees

The Mazda 2 in St Bees looks as fresh now as it did when it debuted in 2007. Back then it marked a U-turn for the firm after its boxy and unpopular predecessor. The new car was given a sporty appearance in a bid to build a more youthful image.

As with off-roaders, people carriers in St Bees have improved dramatically in terms of dynamics over the past few years, and the Mazda 5 is our class favourite.

The smooth 158bhp 2.0-litre engine propels the MkIII from 0-60mph in 7.6 seconds, while its greater mid-range torque takes the strain out of overtaking. Read on to learn more information about the vehicle available in the market in St Bees.

Megane Sport Tourer St Bees

While some estates can compromise a car’s styling with a longer roofline and upright rear screen, the Sport Tourer in St Bees is a good-looking extension of the five-door’s elongated silhouette.

Busy, busy, busy! Our Mercedes C-Class has had one of the most hectic years of any car we’ve ever tested on our long-term fleet. You name it, and our diesel Sport model has done it!

Mercedes CLS 63 AMG St Bees

Up the pace, and the CLS in St Bees begins to creak – both literally and metaphorically.

The CLS also struggles to put all of its power to the road.

Mercedes E220 CDI Sport St Bees

According to the firm’s official figures the E220 CDI available in St Bees should fare better at the pumps. Yet despite its lower kerbweight and slippery shape, its fuel economy of 32.6mpg was pipped by the Jaguar – rounding off a low-key debut for the executive model.

Mercedes S500 St Bees

The world’s most popular luxury car just got better! Four years after launch, Mercedes has taken the flagship S-Class even further upmarket.

When Mercedes puts its weight behind a project, the results can be spectacular. The company’s approach to redefining what we can expect from the luxury car class was so crushingly thorough, the S-Class still stands out like a beacon four years after its launch.

Nissan 370Z NISMO St Bees

Jealousy is a terrible thing, but having just driven Nissan’s NISMO 370Z in St Bees we’re feeling pangs of it here. The NISMO is an American-only model for now, it turning the already brilliant 370Z into an altogether more entertaining machine. In typical NISMO style the numbers associated with the 370Z NISMO aren’t huge - the 3.7-litre V6 engine gets a rather small 18bhp increase in power while torque rises by a single figure.

Nissan 370Z Roadster St Bees

The Z-car in St Bees has blown its top and been transformed from coupé to convertible! And just like the fixed-roof model, Nissan’s 370Z Roadster is shorter, more squat and far more purposeful-looking than the 350Z it replaces.

Nissan Note Acenta St Bees

If you’re buying one of these cars, it’s what’s inside that really counts in St Bees. Climb aboard the Nemo, and you’ll discover its boxy exterior and large glass area result in a bright and airy cabin. There’s bags of headroom, while the rear bench will comfortably seat three adults.

Nissan Pixo St Bees

Small cars with microscopic running costs are big news – so the Pixo couldn’t have arrived at a better time for Nissan. With a 1.0-litre engine that produces CO2 emissions of only 103g/km and starting prices from as low as £5,995, it ticks all the low-cost boxes.

Read on and find more details about this car in St Bees.
