SEAT UK is encouraging the uptake of latest generation, lower-emission new cars, in tandem with the removal of older, Euro 1-4 emissions standards vehicles from the UK car parc, by today launching an attractive scrappage scheme.

Owners of any diesel vehicle that complies with pre-Euro 5 emissions legislation qualify for the SEAT scrappage incentive. They are able to trade-in the vehicle to benefit from incentives – ranging from £1,500 to £3,500 – against several new SEAT models (see table below) if the vehicle is ordered by 31 December 2017. The trade-in vehicle needs to have been owned by the customer for at least six months.

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

Summary of offers on Euro 6 petrol and diesel models:

Model Purchase / Scrappage Amount (Inc. VAT)

  • Mii / £1,500
  • Ibiza / £2,500
  • Leon / £3,500
  • Toledo / £3,000


Editors‘ notes:

Euro emissions standards

The ‘Euro 1‘ standard was introduced in 1992 to help reduce vehicle emissions. Progressively more stringent Euro standards have been implemented since then, helping to lower emissions still further. ‘Euro 6‘, the standard that all new petrol and diesel cars must meet, is currently the toughest yet.

To discover whether a diesel vehicle will qualify for the SEAT scrappage incentive offer, customers can visit the Vehicle Certification Agency website or ask their nearest SEAT dealer.
