I know i'll probably get the ice cold vote for mentioning the scrappage scheme.
Not a big fan of the scheme myself, but their a few low priced cars to be had if you
do have an old banger on its last legs.

But i have searched out the best deals for anyone looking to get rid of their old
banger and upgrade to something newer, without spending a fortune.

So i have found the best scrappage deals for under £5,000.

Most of the cars below only have a ROAD TAX duty of £35 and do over 45 MPG (Combined).


Kia Picanto (5 Door) - £4,195
Warranty - 3 years unlimited mileage
12 Months Road tax - £35
Engine - 1.0 litre
MPG (Combined) - 57.6
Offer Found on Kia Website.

Volkswagen Fox (3 Door) - £4,845
Warranty - 3 years or 60,000 miles
12 Months Road Tax - £125
Engine - 1.2
MPG (Combined) - 46.3
Offer Found on Volkswagen Website.

Suzuki Alto SZ2 (5 Door) - £4,795
Warranty - 3 years or 60,000 miles
12 Months Road tax - £35
Engine - 1.0 litre
MPG (Combined) - 64.2
Offer Found on Suzuki Website.

Fiat Panda Eco (5 Door) - £4995
Warranty - 3 years or 60,000 miles
12 Months Road tax - £35
Engine - 1.1 Litre
MPG (Combined) - 56.5
Offer Found on Fiat Website.

Hyundai i10 Classic (5 Door) - £4995
Warranty - 5 years Unlimited Mileage
12 Months Road tax - £35
Engine - 1.2
MPG (Combined) - 56.5
Offer Found on Hyundai Website.


All car's above are the base models of their range as you would expect at these prices.
I did also find a New Perodua Kenari 1.0 GX 5Dr Mini MPV for £4,620.00... but come on
you would have to be really cheap to want to buy one of these.

Most of the car's above have most of the toy's you would expect, i.e electric windows, power steering,
cd player, remote locking... etc.

If your a badge snob the VW is not a bad price, but comes with no toy's like electric windows or remote
locking, as that would take the price to nearer £5,500 for a VW Fox "Urban".
+ about 17 seconds to get to 60 mph!

If your not a badge snob the Hyundai i10 Classic is by far the best buy coming with all the toy's, including
the sought after "AIR CONDITIONING".

All the above prices exclude Metallic Paint as most are charging an extra £150 - £350 extra. But you still get a not to bad range of colour as long as you like Red or White! Ha!...Ha!...

Remember a few key rules about the scrappage scheme:

Your CAR or VAN (upto 3.5 ton) must be 10 years or older (registered no later than 31st July 1999), MOT'd, Taxed & you must have owned it for at least 12 months.
SORN car owners will have to check with your local dealers as i noticed a Suzuki dealer offering the
Suzuki Alto for £5,250 (ish), and it stated SORN cars excepted. So like i said just give your local
dealership a bell and check.

Hope this has been useful to anyone looking to get rid of their old banger in exchange for more
economical, carbon friendly car!

(by the way i dont post much, so i may have put this in the wrong plc, if so please correct. thank you).

New cars only, as you must be the first registered keeper of the car you are going to purchase.
You cannot purchase a pre reg or nearly new car under the scheme.
It's a real shame that pre reg cars dont come under the scheme as i know in other countries they do.

link below will give you more answers if you are confused about anything else to do with the scrappage scheme.

A list of cars just under £6,000 for people
who may want a better branded car... well kinda!

below cars sourced from:
http://www.arnoldclark.com/scrappage/


New Shape Ford KA Studio - £5995

New Shape Renault Clio Extreme - £5995

New Shape Citroen C1 VT - £5995

Peugeot 107 Urban Lite - £5488

Nissan Micra Visia - £5995

Vauxhall Corsa Life - £5995
(about two weeks ago it was advertised at £5,250
with Arnold Clark under the scrappage scheme,
dont know why the price went up).

Again all of these are the base models, but most come with
the toys you would expect... well except the Ford KA which
doesnt even have electric windows.

and the Renualt Clio Extreme is actually £500 more on the
Renault website.
http://www.renault.co.uk/cars/scrap.aspx

oh... and you can get a CHEVROLET MATIZ S (5 Door), 0.8 Litre, £35 Per Year Road Tax, 54.3 MPG, For £4,295
But really... would you want one! Did'nt think so! Ha!... Ha!...

Hope this was helpful.

Thanks for collating all the info. It really does help if you're looking to take advantage of the scrappage "deal". I've been looking around the web sites for a few days now and it gets depressing trying to compare one against the other.
Never spotted the air conditioned Hyundai - must check that out. Most of the cars upped the price by around £1000 for AC.
Heat an rep added.

Thanks Chrissieboy for extending the list.
#5
I too certainly appreciate your efforts Chrissieboy. Thanks to you I'm much better informed now.

Have some heat and well deserved Rep :) and a big thank you.

the alto combine mpg is 64.1

do the prices quoted already have the £2000 reduction applied or does that still have to comeoff?

51.4 MPG is just the urban... my mistake.:oops:

prices above are with £2000 or more off under the scrappage scheme.
#11
How about a Tata Nano the world's cheapest car at £1,350. That way they'd give you £650 cashback.
#12
These seem quite good deals also:

If you replace it with a shiny new Škoda you will get a whopping £2,500 off a brand new car. This saving includes £1,000 from the Government incentive and a whopping £1,500 happy scrapping discount from Škoda. There are even a few models with up to £2,630 off.

All info to be found on the Skoda website - cheapest price is £5,995

i test drove a roomster 1, 1.4 @ hendry skoda, which is really just a fabia with a funny looking rear end. it's actually a really good car to drive.
i hope the car companies keep the under £6,000 scrappage deals coming...
as have you heard 2 nissan gt-r's supercars have already been sold under the scrappage scheme. :thumbsup:

I saw the Hyundai i10 advertised for £4995 2 weeks ago and took my mum to the dealer. The car arrives at the end of June. 4 airbags, aircon and a 5 year unlimited mileage warrenty. The best price for a used one on Autotrader was £6395. I test drove the car and was quite impressed. It's a great little city car and fine for the occasional longer journey. The scrappage scheme is great if you want a cheap small car but there are much better deals on nearly new larger cars.

Happy motoring.
#15
Can you sell the car you got under that scheme? Or do you have to keep it for certain amount of time?

You see... I've got an old van that I don't need, but... I also do not need a new car as I have one I am quite happy with:) So... I was just thinking:)


Many thanks to the finder.. I may also consider getting a new one and keepin' it.

I'm sure you can, but depreciation wipes out the discount in approx. 60 days.

ctuk...


You are right... forgot that factor:)

Many thanks.

I need to get a new car, mainly for work runs (17 miles each way mostly A roads) but for the occasional longer journey with 3 kids, dont think one of these Super minis will quite do ? Anyone seen good deals for slightly larger cars ?
#20
Heat and rep to the OP for the work put in to this post, but I don't agree with the scrappage scheme overall. You should be able to negotiate a 2k discount off list without too much effort, and the discounts are even more for pre-reg or nearly new. And in my view, most people with a 10 year old car either like old cars so wouldn't want to trade up, or can't afford anything newer so can't trade up.

The i10 would get my vote from that selection, I prefer value for money over badge snobbery.
#21
Very nice post m8 & can appreciate the work put in. Heat added :)
#22
Yes indeed, agree with all the above, this is a stunning effort on what is a confusingly grey area for most. This kind of thing is where this site come into it's own. Heat and rep.
#23
whats the deal without the car??? mite b cheaper anyone tried them out????
#24
I'm amazed that a mod has not insisted that you add the info that these prices are with the discount already in place.

Was very dissapointed that these were the best you could find, even though the limitations make this sceme a total farce.

I would quite like £2000 off a new bike for my old mountain bike.

Thanks for very informative post

We traded in a 16 yr old Mazda for a new car. Originally were looking at Hyundai i10 as the 5 yr warranty really appeals. However when we went to the Showroom much preferred the Hyundai
i20 for us. Thought the i20 was a lovely car ( not too small). My husband and sons are 6ft 4" tall. All the Hyundai's including the i10 have air conditioning which most other makes don't. After looking at several garages I though £ for £ the Hyundai's were the best value
Think the basic i20 was £5995 (after £2000 scrappage) though we paid extra for the next model up and metallic paint.
http://www.hyundai.co.uk/newCars/i20/

In our dealers in Liverpool they were giving more than £2000 off list price of i20 (think our discount worked out £2700
on the model we bought agt List Price.

Actually, i was looking for a car before this and still am it's between the i20 which is £8000 to model, or the Grand Punto £11000 (scrappage scheme) £10000 (cash!) so its not always the best option. just in most cases!!!

very helpful thank you

I wonder if dealers will take advantage of the scheme to scrap old stock and allow them to pre-reg cars.

You expect new cars advertised under £5k to not include any discount. Behave. Anyone with any common sense would realise these prices are with the scrappage discounts.

Heat and Rep. Very informative post! :thumbsup:

hyundai i20 would get my vote!

The warrenty alone is worth hundreds of pounds!!!

So the British taxpayer is having to cough up two grand a time to keep foreign workers in jobs and foreign manufacturers in profit whilst this country goes to the dogs? Doesn't seem hot to me.

I recall reading somewhere that it's much more environmentally friendly to keep old cars running because of the huge carbon footprint involved in manufacturing brand new cars. It's a topsy turvy world we live in.

dunno where you get 11k from. List price is £7995 and £5995 scrappage for a punto

http://www.fiat.co.uk/Content/?id=13681&hash=showroom/grande_punto_3dr/offers

although you can get them for £6995 (without scrappage)

You're right to an extent, but regardless of who makes it, our country will still make a profit on it, so it isn't all bad. Keeps the sleazy car sales fellas in their jobs too :-D


Great post by the op, it is probably of use to people that need a run around, personally I'd prefer a year old car with a bit more style, but a good post none the less. Heat and rep added.

Someone who hasn't bought a new car in over 10 years might have less idea on the prices of new cars than you think.

Best thing is to leave out important info and let people just figure it out for themselves.

I didn't know that knowing how much all these cars cost was common sense.

This scheme doesn't cost the taxpayer a penny actually in a lot of cases. Only £1,000 is subsidised by the exchequer but you're forgetting that new cars have 15% VAT on them. So, buy a car for £12000 and get £2000 off = £10000 paid of which around £1200 is VAT so the taxpayer is £200 better off :thumbsup:
