2017 Vauxhall scrappage scheme – how does it work and do you qualify?

The Vauxhall scrappage scheme ends on 30 September 2017 – we’re waiting to hear if it’ll be extended. In the meantime, check with your carwow dealer.

Vauxhall is offering a scrappage scheme that’ll guarantee you get at least £2,000 for your trade-in car when you buy a new one. It’s not based on any emissions criteria and is offered on both petrol and diesel-powered models. The car you trade in must have been registered to you for at least 90 days and the car you buy must be registered to the same address by 30 September 2017.

What is the Vauxhall scrappage scheme?

Vauxhall’s scrappage scheme bumps up the value of your trade-in car to £2,000. In practice, if your trade-in car is worth £500, Vauxhall will give you an extra £1,500 to make up the difference – if your car is worth more than £2,000, you won’t get any extra cash. It runs until 30 September 2017 and is applicable to any brand’s models and isn’t specific to petrol or diesel.

What cars can I buy?

Here are the Vauxhall models available with the scrappage scheme – the saving applies to a selection of the brand’s popular diesel and petrol models. Click on the model you want to start configuring it.

How much money will I get?

The amount you get will depend on how much your trade-in car is deemed to be worth. If it’s a complete wreck, for example, and valued at just £1, you’ll get an extra £1,999 towards your new Vauxhall. If you car is worth more than £2,000, you won’t be eligible for the scheme and will just get the normal trade-in value.
