Vauxhall has given its support to the Government's Scrappage Programme, and confirmed that it would roll out the £2,000 discount across its full range of car and commercial vehicles, while maintaining all its existing finance offers - and some additional discounts, too.

Vauxhall Astra buyers, for example, will now benefit from not only a straight £2,000 discount across any car in the range, but also Vauxhall's 'You Pay, We Pay' deal on eligible models, which gives them five per cent cash back on the amount financed, combined with nought per cent finance for up to four years, and free redundancy cover.

And if that weren't enough, buyers who plump for the British-built Vauxhall Astra Life 1.4 hatchback receive a £3,870 'Scrap and Save' discount from participating dealers, in addition to the £2,000 scrappage discount, reducing the price to £8,995 - a total saving of £5,870 off the recommended retail price.

Other Vauxhall models have also combined existing offers with the scrappage discount to make some of the most tempting new car buys on the market. All Vauxhall Zafiras, Vauxhall Merivas and Vauxhall Tigras benefit from the 'You Pay, We Pay' cash back, while the Vauxhall Corsa range retains nought per cent finance for three years on all its models. For extra peace of mind, all buyers who finance their purchase through GMAC receive free redundancy cover.

And for those buyers who thought that a new Vauxhall was just out of reach, the great news is that the recently launched Vauxhall Agila range now starts at £6,995 for the generously equipped Club 1.0i ecoFLEX model, after participating dealers apply a special £2,430 'Scrap and Save' discount, which includes the regular £2,000 scrappage discount.

Best of all, for those buyers who take up the scrappage scheme, Vauxhall retailers will be happy to handle all the paperwork for them, including the arrangements for their old car to be scrapped.

"There's never been a better time to buy a new Vauxhall," said Andy Gilson, Vauxhall's Marketing Director. "Now we've fully embraced the Government's Scrappage Programme, Vauxhall's customers will be able to cash in on some of the best new car deals available in the UK."
