Skoda makes goodbye easier.

SKODA calls itself the manufacturer for happy drivers and is now helping owners to take one last journey behind the wheel of their beloved motor with some of the most attractive scrappage deals currently on offer.

The company, which is the Best Manufacturer in the 2009 Auto Express Driver Power survey, says it is embracing the scrappage scheme with a vengeance and aims to boost sales significantly as a result.

"It might be an emotional journey to trade in an old car, but low on-the-road prices and very attractive finance offers on vehicles across the Skoda range will make it easier to say goodbye," says a spokesperson.

The Skoda Fabia now starts at just pounds 5,995 with the manufacturer topping up the government's pounds 1,000 payment with a contribution of more than pounds 1,600.

The Octavia, which is Skoda's award-winning mid-size family model, is now available from only pounds 8,995, with the importer adding pounds 1,545 to the Government's pounds 1,000..

All other models, including the award-winning flagship Superb and the popular Roomster have pounds 2,500 off, with pounds 1,500 of that contributed by the car company.

The Skoda range is also available with an outstanding range of finance offers that have low monthly payments through Skoda Finance Solutions.

This means that a Fabia 1, 1.2 hatch costs from just pounds 59 a month plus the deposit.

The Skoda Roomster S 1.2 costs from pounds 109 a month plus deposit, an Octavia S, 1.4 hatch costs from pounds 129 a month plus the deposit and a Superb S TSI costs from pounds 185 a month plus the deposit.

Skoda brand director Robert Hazelwood says: "We are committed to maintaining Skoda's great reputation for providing excellent value.

With our award-winning cars, personal service and affordable finance offers, we should be the first port of call for anyone looking to take advantage of the scrappage scheme, which is welcome news for the motor industry." Jacqui Rowley, Skoda finance manager, adds: "These great finance offers are just right for many people who are considering a new car. They can get into a new Fabia for less than pounds 15 per week.

"Families who bought a secondhand car for their son or daughter can replace that car with a new Skoda and have the peace of mind of knowing that their loved ones are driving a safer, more economical and environmentally-friendly car." .. TO qualify for the scrappage scheme, cars being turned in must have been registered on or before August 31, 1999, must have a valid MOT and the driver applying to scrap the vehicle must have been its owner for at least 12 months.
