Car scrappage schemes 2019: the manufacturers offering the best deals on new cars, from Ford to Kia

The UK car industry is in a bit of a state at the moment, with declining sales and a huge amount of uncertainty.

In an effort to stimulate sales as well as – they insist – get more polluting old cars off the roads a number of car makers are running scrappage or trade-in schemes.

Similar to the government-run programme that ran in 2009-10, these schemes offer buyers substantial amounts off brand new cars when they trade-in older models which are then scrapped. The idea is that this helps buyers get a new car and improve air quality by removing the most polluting old cars from the roads.

Unlike the first scrappage scheme, current offers are being run by individual brands so we’ve gathered together all the latest offers, which include up to £6,000 back from some manufacturers.
