Owners of vehicles 10-or-more years old who want to take advantage of the new £2,000 scrappage incentive will be welcome at SsangYong dealerships.

The scheme, set to start in mid-May 2009, provides £1,000 from central government and a matching £1,000 from manufacturers, towards the cost of a new SsangYong Kyron, SsangYong Rexton or a SsangYong Rodius when an old vehicle is traded in for scrap. SsangYong is working on the details of the scheme which is expected to encourage buyers to replace older vehicles with safer and less polluting new ones.

The offer applies to the SsangYong Kyron and the SsangYong Rexton C-S light commercial vehicles as well as SsangYong passenger cars. It comes straight after the South Korean makes move to five year or 250,000 mile warranties, making a SsangYong even better value for anyone needing to replace an old car or van.

Attractive Contract Hire

Selected SsangYong models are available at very attractive contract hire rates. The SsangYong Rodius 270 S and SsangYong Kyron EX with manual transmission are both available for £229 a month, with the SsangYong Rexton 270 S at £259 over three years and 30,000 miles. In each case, the initial deposit is three monthly payments totalling £687 for the SsangYong Rodius and SsangYong Kyron, and £777 for the SsangYong Rexton followed by 35 monthly payments.

Contract hire is a great solution for anyone wanting to avoid the financial outlay and administrative burden of vehicle ownership with easily budgeted fixed payments. The SsangYong Rodius 270 S has an on-the-road price of £14,995, the SsangYong Kyron EX is £19,495 and the SsangYong Rexton 270 S £19,995.
