  • SEAT UK has extended its scrappage incentive scheme for older diesel vehicles against purchase of latest Euro 6 models
  • Incentives of up to £3,500 available across the SEAT range (depending on model) on both new petrol and diesel models. New cars to be ordered by 31st March 2018 and registered by 30 June 2018
  • Vehicles traded in will continue to be scrapped
  • Offers available to owners of any diesel vehicle registered before 2010 (pre Euro 5)

SEAT UK has extended its scrappage incentive scheme until 31st March 2018, encouraging owners of older cars to switch to lower-emission Euro 6 compliant new cars.

The scheme enables owners of any diesel vehicle that complies with pre-Euro 5 emissions legislation to qualify for the SEAT scrappage incentive.

All new SEAT petrol and diesel cars meet the latest Euro 6 emissions standards, currently the most stringent yet.
