In a bold to move to outdo the Chancellor, Skoda has scrapped VAT on the current Octavia.
Starting immediately and in place until 31st December 2008 only, all current Skoda Octavias, including the plush L&K, the 4x4 Scout and the sporty vRS, will be sold to customers VAT free.
The offer does not only apply to the list price but also to all options and vehicle delivery, representing a potential total saving of up to £3,000.
Robert Hazelwood, Brand Director at Skoda, comments: "The Octavia is one of our best selling cars and its popularity is evident in the fact it has found nearly 140,000 happy homes in the UK.
"As car buyers scour the market in search of great deals we are responding to their needs and covering the cost of VAT on any Octavia purchased in December.
"The current Octavia has won a series of car industry top prizes for its driveability, spaciousness flexibility and great value, so this is a great opportunity to buy some of the best hatchbacks and estates on the market at very attractive prices."
