PSA brands join the scrappage party

- Advertisement -

PSA Groupe, which comprises Peugeot, Citroën and DS Automobiles, has joined the rest of the volume brands in the UK with a scrappage offer for older part-exchange vehicles.

The three French brands have been a little more generous than many of their rivals, however, by accepting cars registered up to 31 December 2010, which is a year newer than most similar schemes. Of course, newer cars are likely to be worth more anyway, so won’t necessarily benefit from the scrappage offer.

Citroën’s scrappage allowances vary from £1,600 on the newly-launched C3 Aircross up to £6,400 on the soon-to-be-discontinued C3 Picasso. There are also offers on the Citroën LCV range, which we will be covering over at The Van Expert.

Peugeot is offering allowances from £1,750 on the 108 up to £6,000 on the 508 range. There are also offers on the Peugeot LCV range, which we will be covering over at The Van Expert.

DS Automobiles allowances run from £3,500 on selected DS 3 models up to £5,500 on DS 5 models.

The scrappage allowances cannot be used in conjunction with any other offers, so even if you have an eligible part-exchange vehicle, you should check to see if there are any better deals for your circumstances.

The Car Expert examines the fine print

  • This offer is a part-exchange allowance, for selected used cars part-exchanged against selected new cars.
  • Your current car can be from any brand, but must have been first registered no later than 31 December 2010. The first registration date is found in your V5C logbook registration document.
  • You must be the owner of the part-exchange vehicle and the buyer of the new car (same name and registered address).
  • You must have owned the old car for at least 90 days (three months), to stop people buying an old banger for £200 and then getting a £2,000 part-exchange allowance for it.
  • The scrappage price is fixed for any car part-exchanged as part of the scheme, not an allowance on top of the car’s value. You are effectively getting nothing for your car, but a discount on the new car (although it won’t be written that way on the contract).
  • New cars must be ordered and registered no later than 31 December 2017.
  • This offer cannot be used on top of any other offers from the dealer, manufacturer or finance company.
  • The offer is not dependent on you taking any finance package or other products.
