Škoda Predicts A Winter Of Contentment

At a time of year when hands are starting to hover over the central heating thermostat, ŠKODA has announced a range of finance offers that are guaranteed to warm the hearts of UK car buyers.
With deposit contributions of up to £3,000 and new low rate finance packages available, buyers can snap up one of ŠKODA’s award-winning models at an incredible price.
Available until the end of the year, the latest raft of offers are available to customers choosing to finance their purchase through ŠKODA’s Solutions Personal Contract Plans (PCP)*. The biggest savings are reserved for the multi-award-winning Octavia and Superb models, which attract deposit contributions of £3,000 and a 4.9% APR interest rate. Available on all models (except SE Technology), the deposit contributions represent a significant saving for buyers – allowing them to get even more car for their money.
And the eye-catching offers don’t stop there. Kodiaq and Fabia models (excluding Kodiaq SE Technology) come with a generous £2,000 deposit contribution. Fabia buyers also benefit from a low 2.9% APR interest rate (Kodiaq 5.5% APR), further driving down the cost of ŠKODA ownership. Rapid buyers can secure the same low interest rate of 2.9% APR and get a deposit contribution of £1,800 if they opt for a Solutions PCP, while customers opting for the recently updated Citigo (all models except S) can get a £1,000 deposit contribution and the same low interest rate of 2.9% APR.
Buyers with a taste for adventure and an aversion to high interest rates should look towards the Yeti, which can be driven away with a £1,500 deposit contribution and a 0% APR interest rate. The offer applies to stock models only, so retailers are urging buyers to act quickly if they want to secure one of ŠKODA’s most acclaimed models.
And for those wanting to get behind the wheel of ŠKODA’s very latest SUV, the all-new Karoq is available with a deposit contribution of £1,500 when purchased with a 6.1% APR Solutions PCP. With deliveries set to start in January and order books now open, customers can secure a great deal and be one of the first in the UK to own a new Karoq.
Separate to the latest finance offers, ŠKODA is continuing to offer customers of older diesel models the opportunity to switch into a cleaner, more efficient model and receive up to £4,000 against the cost of the new model. Under the terms of the ŠKODA scrappage incentive offer all qualifying vehicles will be permanently taken off the road and scrapped.
Buyers who own a diesel vehicle that complies with pre-Euro 5 emissions legislation, and was registered before 2010, qualify for the ŠKODA scrappage incentive offer**. Incentives range from £1,500 to £4,000 and are available to use against the majority of new ŠKODA models, when ordered by 31 December 2017. To qualify, buyers must have owned the trade-in vehicle for at least six months.
*At the end of the agreement there are three options: i) pay the optional final payment and own the vehicle; ii) return the vehicle: subject to excess mileage and fair wear and tear, charges may apply; or iii) replace: part exchange the vehicle.

Not available in conjunction with any other offers. Applicable on all vehicles currently available to order excluding Kodiaq, Karoq, SE Technology and Citigo S trims.
