Suzuki Joins the Scrappage... Scheme

As was to be anticipated, manufacturers have already begun to flock to the recently-announced soon-to-come-into-effect scrappage scheme. The fastest of them all was Skoda, who announced their entry since last week. And now Suzuki comes along...

Beginning May 18, the Japanese manufacturer will throw its entire range into the fight. In addition, for the Swift, Splash, SX4 and Grand Vitara, the 0 percent APR finance offer will continue throughout June. But let's take it one small step at a time...

The Grand Vitara 1.9 DDiS five-door is now available at dealers for £13,500 (under the scrappage scheme, so don't forget to trade in your old carriage), together with the aforementioned financing, Suzuki says this means "a customer saving of a very significant £4,000 on the list price."

The Swift Supermini is available from £6,750 and can be also leased after a down payment of £625, with zero percent finance, payable over two years. The SX4 1.6 GL is available from £8,990, or with a 50 percent deposit, payable over two years under the interest free finance scheme.

Suzuki is pleased to participate in the scheme and, judging by the unprecedented number of enquiries, we are confident that we’re offering the right cars at the right time,” David Seward, Suzuki UK sales and marketing director said in a release.

We won't tell you for what manufacturer to go for. But if you have an old jalopy laying around, trade it in. Often unseen, the crisis does have a good side to it. And if ever planned to buy a car, then this is the moment. Especially in the UK, where you get a £2,000 bonus to turn in your old vehicle.
