Mazda Scrappage Features Low Interest Finance

Fri, 15 May 2009
Mazda UK has welcomed the imminent launch of the Government-backed vehicle scrappage scheme by keeping in place a range of hugely competitive low finance deals that deliver enticing offers to consumers.

The scrappage scheme begins on Monday, May 18 and will run until February 28, 2010 or until Government funding to the sum of £300 million has been used.

Under the terms of the programme, a £2,000 discount against the purchase price of a new Mazda can be obtained - £1,000 each from the Government and Mazda UK - when the owner scraps a vehicle over 10 years old.

However, while some motor manufacturers have withdrawn their most competitive finance deals following announcement of the scheme, Mazda UK’s decision to keep in place its range of low finance options, backed by the giant Santander banking organisation, means even more added value for vehicle owners changing their ‘old’ model for a new Mazda.

With a full suite of finance offers in place it means that 0% funding options are available on a number of models including Mazda2 and the all new Mazda3 (see below), which are expected to be the most popular for consumers taking advantage of the scrappage scheme. In addition, both ranges are also available with a 3.9% rate for traditional conditional sale finance or a PCP, with the scrappage discount acting as a deposit.

But, the entire Mazda model line-up, which also includes Mazda5, Mazda6, MX-5, RX-8 and BT-50, is available within the scrappage scheme and with a number of different finance offers.

Mazda UK sales and marketing director Mark Cameron said: “Our decision to offer a range of low finance deals, including 0% offers on models that are expected to attract most scrappage scheme interest, brings a new Mazda into range for an increasing number of motorists. It's about the affordability of the monthly payment and our low finance rates make this possible for our customers.

“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 reasons for buying a Mazda,” highlights Cameron.

Mark Cameron added: “In addition, unlike some of our competitors we have not reduced the strength of our current retail finance offers for non-scrappage scheme customers. So whether looking to buy a new Mazda inside or outside of the new scrappage programme, Mazda is making the opportunity to buy a new car as attractive as possible.”
