Suzuki and Mazda join scrappage scheme race

Suzuki Swift

Suzuki and Mazda have become the latest car manufacturers to offer limited-term scrappage schemes in the UK

Mazda's customers can benefit from incentives of up to £5,000 on models emitting less than 130g/km when they trade in a pre-2010 car to be scrapped before the end of the year while Suzuki retailers will be offering customers an incentive of up to £2,000 to customers until September 30th.

Both manufacturers will scrapp all scrappage trade-in vehicles as part of theire schemes.

Mazda UK sales director, Peter Allibon said: “This scheme is a great opportunity for motorists to upgrade to a cleaner car and enjoy the driver involvement, quality and style of a new Mazda.

"Not specific to diesel engines, this scheme is designed to incentivise dirtier older cars of all engine types off the road, and offers consumers the choice of sub 130g/km cars from both our SKYACTIV-G petrol and SKYACTIV-D diesel range.”

Mazda's scrappege incentives range from £2,500 on the Mazda 2 hatchback to £5,000 on certain Mazda 3 and Mazda 6 models.

The scrappage vehicles must have been owned in their own name for at least 90 days.

Scrappage scheme savings cannot be combined with the latest summer Suzuki new car offers.
