- Discounts across the full Hyundai range, with up to £5000 off
- Scheme runs from September 1st to the end of the year
- Applies to all petrol and diesel cars registered before 31 December 2009
Hyundai is the latest maker to introduce a scrappage scheme
Following hot on the heels of similar schemes from BMW, Mini, Ford, Vauxhall and Mercedes, the new offer gives discounts of up to £5000 on a brand new Hyundai to people trading in an older, more polluting model.
The scheme runs from September 1st until the end of the year, but is open to retail customers only. It applies to all cars registered before December 31st 2009 – petrol or diesel, any make or model. The main condition is that the current owner must have had the car that is traded in for at least 90 days.
The maximum discount is £5000 off the price of a Santa Fe, with £3500 off the Tucson, £3000 off the i30 and i40, and £2000 off the Ioniq hybrid, i20 and ix20. There will also be a £1,500 saving on the i10, but customers should note that, in some cases, the highest savings are available only on certain models within the range. For example, the i10 S 1.0 and i20 S 1.2 are available with larger discounts than the rest of their ranges.
This is the second scrappage scheme from Hyundai, following a scheme that ran from April 2009 to April 2010, when more than 45,000 buyers took advantage. It follows the recent announcement of similar schemes from BMW/Mini, Mercedes, Ford and Vauxhall.
