Gone are the days of Vauxhall Astras match into flowerpots in Staffordshire now that the local police department has taken transportation of its two newest cars.

Crims will be “very lucky to get away,” says Staffordshire the cops mechanic Paul Renkevic, after working on the force’s new A6 Allroad and a Golf R.

The new the coppers cars were purchased by the police force after asking officers for their feedback on what they needed out of a patrol car.

Whereas the A6 Allroad will carry armed officers, the Golf R will remnants unmarked. The two cars hint at the reasoning behind the new cars, which is to have vehicles wiser suited to particular tasks, rather than a one-size fits all approach.

“From our prospect we need a varied fleet – you have tactical vehicles in different locations that obligation meet different needs,” Sarah Wood, strategic head of transport, told the Stoke Guard.

A Ford Kuga, BMW X5, 330 have also been added to the fleet, which now rises to a gross of 550 cars for the force.

As is standard for the force, the cars will stay in maintenance until their warranties are up or until they hit 120,000 miles. At that epoch they can either be handed back to the manufacturer, auctioned, or (as we confidently predict longing happen with the Audi and VW) kept on.
