Suzuki and Mazda announce scrappage scheme

*Updated 27/02/2018: Mazda has enhanced their scrappage scheme! It now includes the all-new Mazda CX-5, and cars registered before the 31st December 2010 are now eligible for scrappage.*

Starting with Ford’s announcement a few weeks ago, almost every manufacturer has been announcing their version of a scrappage scheme.  Now Mazda and Suzuki have joined the ranks with scrappage schemes of their own.  Launched last week, both companies are offering thousands off a new car in exchange for any car registered before 31st December 2010.

Here’s a summary of what each scheme offers.


Mazda Scrappage Scheme

*UPDATED 19.12.2017* Mazda have extended their Scrappage Scheme for cars registered up until 31st March 2018

It also offers a greater discount of up to £5,000 off the RRP.  And there are no emissions based exclusions on the trade-in vehicle. As long as it was registered in 2010 or earlier, it’s eligible. Instead, they’ve applied a restriction to the new car based on CO2 emissions.

What are the requirements?

  1. The vehicle you’ll be scrapping must have been registered on or before 31st December 2010.
  2.  The trade-in car must have been registered in the current keeper’s name for at least 60 days at the point that the new vehicle is ordered.
  3. Either the name or address of the new vehicle’s keeper must the same as that of the scrappage vehicle.

The offer limitations:

  1. Only available on Mazda 2 Petrol, Mazda3 Petrol, Mazda 3 Diesel, Mazda 6 Petrol, Mazda6 Diesel, Mazda CX-3 and all-new Mazda CX-5.
  2. Only available on private retail registrations.
  3. Not available in conjunction with any other offers.
  4. Vehicles purchased through Personal Contract Purchase or Conditional Sale are available with 3.9% APR up to 48 months.
  5. Only available on models with CO2 emissions less than 130g/km.

What happens to my car under the scrappage scheme?

Mazda has partnered with a major disposal company, Car Take Back, to ensure your old car is disposed of responsibly. And don’t let the term ‘scrappage’ fool you; your car’s not heading straight for the scrap heap. The majority of your scrapped vehicle will be recycled in line with the Government target of 95%
