Save on a new Hyundai today


Hyundai was one of the big success stories of the original scrappage scheme back in 2009/10, and now it’s back again and extended for 2018, with savings of between £1,500 and £5,000 against new Hyundai cars, with incentives on all models from the i10 city car to the Santa Fe SUV.

The company is also offering a £2,000 scrappage discount on the IONIQ hybrid model.

How does it work?

Called the ‘Scrappage and Emission Reduction Scheme’ – a clever way of suggesting that not all cars traded in will be scrapped – the Hyundai incentive offers savings of up to £5,000 for drivers looking to trade in old petrol or diesel-engined cars that are Euro 4 emissions standard or earlier and were registered before December 31, 2009.

The biggest savings are on the Santa Fe SUV, but there are multiple incentives across the entire Hyundai range.

What new cars can you buy?

Hyundai’s scheme incorporates most of the company’s model range, the only notable exclusions being the i800 MPV, for which supply is limited anyway, the even more scarce Genesis saloon for which there is less need to stimulate demand.

Is it worth it?

Hyundai’s scheme certainly offers a lot of choice, with no less than eight different models benefitting from incentives – more than most manufacturers, who tend to focus on only a handful of core models. The savings represent better value when applied to more expensive cars.
