Buy a brand new Kia car from just £4,195 OTR**
You can, thanks to the Government Scrappage incentive scheme!

If your car is more than 10 years old and you've owned it for more than 12 months, there's never been a better time to change it for a new one - unless of course it's a classic or holds great sentimental value.

The Government and Kia are offering you a minimum of £2,000 to scrap your old car until March 2010. So your current car may be worth a lot more than you thought which means a brand new Kia is now amazingly affordable.

A 5-door Picanto could be yours from just £4,195 OTR** (including your £2,000 scrappage allowance). Apart from its superb standard specification, the Picanto is also an economical choice, with an extra urban fuel consumption of just 64.2 mpg from its 1.0 litre engine and an annual road tax charge of just £35 ?


Kia cars offer exceptional quality and value for money!


Reduce your car related worries!
The Kia range all have industry leading warranties*, with a minimum of three years unlimited mileage up to a staggering 7 years across the whole cee'd range. Imagine having no more worries about unexpected repair bills.


Reduce your running costs.
Advances in engine technology means that new cars, on average, are more economical than old ones. And, if you choose one of Kia's 12 low CO2 models, you'll save every year with an annual road tax charge of only £35 ?

Drive safer.
All new Kia models have a superb standard specification including driver and passenger airbags, side impact protection and ABS with EBD (Anti-lock Braking System with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution).


It couldn't be simpler!
Your Kia dealer will arrange everything for you. Contact your local Kia dealer and they will be happy to do the rest.

Oh dear i hope this is not the start of many listings about £2000 savings of this and that car???
banned#2
I thought those retailed at around £5,995 anyway so it's not a genuine £2,000 saving if you trade in your old car?


This Government scheme sounds good on paper, but in reality, it's not very good. I'd like a new car, but i have no reason to trade in my 10 year old car as it has no real faults. It gets me from A to B. It's all very well saying i have £2,000 off a new car, but it'll be scrapped (and i repeat, it's perfectly fine), and i'd have to keep paying monthly for however long to afford the new car?

Sorry Government, but no!

Not voting hot or cold, i'll let you decide.

Subtracting the £2k from every list price is not a hot deal!

Exactly. They might as well just have it written in big letters; ''we're trying to rip you off if you fall for it...... WINK WINK''


And who wants a KIA anyway? We had loads of trouble from them when we went for one. Paid deposit and they claimed they had no more of the models in stock and kept our deposit and didn't pay it back.

2 grand off this....now thats a bargain

Yes there seems to be lots of advertising of these great deals, but they were offering these kind of prices before. My car on from my dealer now would cost me £145 more than when I bought it. But as the GBP has lost 20% on the world currencies. So is likely to improve profits and cash flow for car companies.

If your looking for a small car have a look at the Hyundai i10. With some great MPG and 5 year warranty if you keep it for the full 5 years and work out the calculations it's not all that bad.

This is way off topic I know so sorry in advance but here's the thing that gets me:

Government decides to tax the living heck out of 4x4's because they're not environmentaly friendly. Okay, stupid and clearly just another way of raising money from mug drivers but fine.

NOW they'll give you two grand to throw away your old car, contribute to the growing disposal problem in this country and buy a brand new car! A brand new car that has to be made, probably shipped to this country from abroad and then transported to your local dealer. How the heck does that square with the green policies they've been banging on about for years now? Tax on Co2, charge per mile, gas guzzlers evil, drivers clubbing baby seals to death etc etc etc.

I'd understand it if there was a condition like 'thou shalt buy cars that are made in the UK', it'd still be a bad idea but at least there's some logic behind it. I guess the government could, in theory, make money off the deal if anyone buys a car with a list price over about £12,000 as they'd get a nice chunk of VAT they wouldn't otherwise receive but seriously, is it really worth all the hassle?
#8
Looking at the small print of the budget, the government are only paying £1000 of this "£2000", the other £1000 comes from the manufacturer, so you would probably be able to get a £1000 discount anyway.

Also, this benevolent Chancellor adding an extra 1p to a litre of petrol every April for the next four years in order to pay for this 'generosity'.

The total government 'grant' is fixed at an amount which will be more than covered by the increase in petrol in less than one year. As for the income for the next three years........

Not quite so much a 'benefit' for the motorist is it.
#9
It's not about keeping the motorist happy. Its about trying to prevent car manufacturers and their supply lines going down the tubes. Only trouble is that as it's done through the dealers, they are taking a big cut of it, so mostly it will benefit dealerships, which means it is not a very well thought out plan.

Can you provide statistics of the income generated from road tax before and after the Government decided to "tax the living heck out of 4x4s"? If you can then you can justify your claim. about it being another way of raising money.

Lots of people with smaller cars are paying less now and many others are using this issue to actually look at buying more environmentally friendly cars.

The good old fuel tax escalator...

I think it is a great deal. I went round to a used car dealer and he offered me £400 for my s reg car against a used kia, now i can get a new one with 3 year warranty for £4100. Greeeaaat

So who is responsible for destroying the planet?
"Motorists should face fewer red lights following the relaxation of government guidance on the flow of traffic.
Local councils can now adopt "green wave" systems of sensors, where vehicles at or just below the speed limit trigger a succession of green (traffic) lights.
Environmental and motoring groups say carbon emissions will be reduced.
Previously the Department for Transport (DfT) had discouraged the systems which reduce fuel use, resulting in less tax being paid to the Treasury.
But now, rather than seeing green wave systems as a "cost" to the public purse, the DfT views them as a "benefit"."

:? So on this green light system proposed, if everyone approaching traffic lights on this "green wave" system at the correct speed etc , what happens at cross roads with traffic lights.

Only ten+ year old cars qualify, conveniently for the Chancellor, those cars don't fall under the new and usually higher VED rates.

That's got nothing to with what I asked about. Increasing tax for 4x4s may generate additional revenue from some people, however, as more cars are being made with very low CO2 emissions and promoted as such the tax revenue from other people is lower. Before making accusations that changing the VED rates has nothing to do with the environment but is purely to generate additional revenue I'd like to see some evidence rather than someone statement.

Please read what I said more carefully. I didn't say it had NOTHING to do with the environemnt, just that it was ALSO a convenient way of making more money out of those who drive higher Co2 emitting motors. What I was saying was that having that increase justified as an environmental tax makes no bloody sense when you consider this scheme is going to encourage those with perfectly serviceable vehicles to scrap 'em - at a high environmental cost - and buy a new car - made with an even higher environmental cost - instead of getting a few more years out of a vehicle that may be emitting slightly more polutants than a modern car but that's already paid the environmental cost of manufacture.

Oh, and if you want to play that game, how about proving that people are buying cars based on saving £30 a year in tax rather than changing to vehicles that get better petrol mileage which happen to coincide with cars in a lower VED bracket?

I read and understood exactly what you meant with regards to this scheme. However, there are too many people who seem to think that the government are using green issues to generate additional revenue and you touched on this. I merely asked for a bit of evidence that the Government are generating more revenue with the new VED brackets.

Clearly I can't prove the reasons for people choosing a certain car over another.

Good article thanks.

I think the offer from the government is rubbish and more smoke and mirrors.

Personally I have a ten year old toyota family car and the deal is no good for me. A like for like replacement is going to need me to find 14 big ones - NO CHANCE

However my retired parents would be ok switching a ten year old focus for one of these Kia's - 5 year warranty for £4K sounds good

The article makes a few good points however some people DO go to a dealership for their brand new car. This means that this comment from the article isn't entirely valid:

You have to buy through a dealer. This is not likely to extend to car brokers and car supermarkets, which are normally thousands of pounds cheaper.


Some people would actually rather buy from a dealership because if there are problems they can go straight back to them. This is the exact reason that some people go to Currys or Comet to buy a new washing machine rather than get the cheapest deal online.

Again, this comment from the article is not valid for those that already buy from their local dealership.

Brand-new cars lose a huge portion of their value immediately. Once you've signed the ownership papers for a £10,000 car, you'll normally be able to re-sell it for roughly £6,000 to £8,000; that's £2,000 to £4,000 less in an instant.


So, for the type of person who always buys from their dealer then this may not be a bad deal. Don't forget that a dealer isn't going to offer much for a trade in on a 10+ year old either.

Having said that, how many people trade in a 10+ year old car for a brand new one? Not many! I'd have thought that most either trade in their 3 year old car when the finance has finished or they buy 2nd hand cars.

It's a good deal for those who were planning on trading their 10+ year old in for a small and cheap car. Hopefully the government will think about the comments raised in the article and extend the scheme to all new cars.
