Vauxhall relaunches £2,000 scrappage scheme

Anyone looking to buy a new Vauxhall is in luck as the brand has relaunched its scrappage scheme, meaning buyers can take advantage of a £2,000 trade-in regardless of how old or mangled their car is.

As long as they’ve owned the vehicle for at least 90 days, customers can save on pretty much any new Vauxhall apart from the new Viva and certain trim levels on the Corsa supermini and Adam city car.

Customers will also be able to combine the £2,000 scrappage allowance with Vauxhall’s attractive flexible finance deals and insurance offers. Even drivers aged 18-20 years old need only pay £99 for a year’s insurance on the Adam Slam and Corsa Limited Edition models, while those over 21 could get a year’s insurance for free.

In theory, a 21-year-old could get a £1,190 finance deposit contribution on a new Corsa 1.2-litre Limited Edition and pay just £193 per month over 36 months. They would also benefit from a year’s free insurance and a year’s free subscription to Vauxhall’s new OnStar road assistance system and in-car 4G wifi.

The scheme is similar to the one introduced by the government back in 2009 which saw manufacturers offering thousands of pounds off of the price of new vehicles in return for older ones being scrapped and disposed of in an environmentally friendly way. Vauxhall will be hoping to see a similarly large increase in sales as owners of older cars have a new reason to trade-in and maximise the value of their old vehicle.
