Mazda Pushes Offers Before The Scrappage Scheme Ends

With the Government's Scrappage Scheme about to finish, now is the time to take advantage of Westminster handing money to the tax payer before they return the money to the public purse. Act now to claim your share of the money available before the scheme closes and the money returns to the treasury.

More than 7,600 motorists became proud owners of a new Mazda in 2009 thanks to the Scrappage Scheme that gives up to £6,000 discount against the purchase price of a new Mazda. And it's not too late to join them!

In the first two weeks of December 2009 alone, more than 450 motorists took advantage of the Government's subsidy and Mazda's cracking scrappage deals to treat themselves to a new Mazda by trading-in a vehicle that was at least 10 years old.

With the scheme due to run out in the first weeks of 2010 now is the time to act and there couldn't be a better time to take advantage of the outstanding deals on offer and trade in your old car for a new Mazda. It's a great way to start the new decade.

Mazda UK has wholeheartedly embraced the Scrappage Scheme since April 2009 and currently supplements the Government's £1,000 with between £1,000 on Mazda2 and £5,000 on Mazda RX-8 which means even more added value for owners changing their 'old' model for a new Mazda.

Including the £1,000 from the Government, Mazda is currently offering £2,000 on Mazda2, £3,000 on Mazda3, Mazda MX-5 and Mazda6, £4,000 on Mazda5 and Mazda CX-7 and £6,000 on Mazda RX-8 for any car traded in on the scrappage scheme.

Figures gathered since the scheme started in May 2009 show that one in ten of buyers choosing a new Mazda are trading in their old Mazda while 16 per cent of buyers are trading in a Ford and 10 per cent were previously Vauxhall owners.

Hardly surprising that the multi-award winning Mazda2 has been the most popular car under the scheme, accounting for 63 per cent, or almost 4,700, of the total Mazdas sold.

The newly-launched Mazda3 was the second most popular choice with almost 1,500 buyers opting for this stylish newcomer, some 20 per cent of the total.

"Mazda vehicles have an enviable reputation for reliability and low operating costs and with the assistance of the scrappage scheme and the availability of low cost finance, we are giving consumers even more reason for buying a Mazda," said Mark Cameron, Mazda UK sales and marketing director.
