Fiat is the latest car maker to roll out a scrappage scheme in its dealers. The Fiat Scrappage Bonus scheme offers savings of up to £3,500 on a Fiat model – including up to £2,125 off the price of a Fiat 500 Pop. This chips the cost of a 1.2 Pop to £9,490.
A £2,500 incentive is offered on all Fiat 500X, the archaic Punto has £3,500 off (yes, they are still selling it) and the sporty Fiat Spider 124 has a £3,000 scrappage saving. Even the value-priced Fiat Tipo family hatch has a discount of up to £1,500.
Trade-in old cars must be Euro 1-4 compliant, registered before 31 December 2009: they can be either petrol or diesel, and the buyer must have owned the car for at least 180 days.
The offer also includes Abarth, Jeep and Alfa Romeo models; £3,500 is offered on the Jeep Renegade and a massive £5,300 is available on all but base-model Giulietta. Even the new Giulia comes with £3,250 off, provided buyers don’t want either the base model or range-topping Quadrifoglio.
The scheme only runs for a month, finishing on 30 September 2017 – although owners have until 31 December to register a car. So even if a car isn’t in stock, buyers can order now, take advantage of the offer and then wait for their model to be built.
