Save your money people, run for the hills !!!!
Think about the environmental impact on buying new. Have a look on eBay or Gumtree etc. There are thousands of perfectly serviceable bikes to choose from.

But the bikes have already been manufactured.......
I personally like these kind of bikes. They service the purpose of putting people off cycling so free up the roads for cars

And thousands of stolen bikes to.
Don't expect any help with carrying to car, especially if purchased from Liverpool one store. They had about a dozen staff just standing around talking and manager wouldn't spare1 person . left me to struggle 500 yards,up 2 dozen steep steps. Id rather buy any where else in future.

Which will certainly be the quicker way to get there if you bought this bike

You carried the bike to the car. If you don’t mind me asking; how did you get the car home?

Likely because it would be boxed with no pedals attached, maybe one wheel attached, no handlebars attached and taped up with packaging.

Staff at argos beacon retail park at bletchley were kind enough to offer me help on 2 occasions i bought a bike (in a big box)
Joking aside. That probably would of been an easy way to get it to car! Argos are lying shower of barstewards. Original reply from CEO office said "that's not the type of customer service we expect from our store staff, we will investigate" two weeks later I asked for update. Argos CEO office replied " I have spoke with store manager, unfortunately they donot allow staff to help customers with heavy purchases to thier car's" the bike box clearly stated in big enormous print, "two person lift" box had two carry ports either end of box, which I pointed out to staff, but no one coughed!!!! Luckily I had a folding sack trolley, but even during the 5 minutes or so it took me to struggle to get his onto trolley. Not one staff member offered to help! It was 7pm no other customers in-store!

Almost, there was quite a few things that needed to be installed etc!
Wow this bike looks terrible, awful front suspension yet they bothered to put a threadless headset on it. Argos do a few other options close to this price point with rigid forks and they would be better options.
