What you need to know about the new scrappage schemesBack

Car makers are launching a new wave of scrappage schemes for owners of older cars.

If you’ve got a car that’s at least seven years old you could make savings of up to £8,000 on a new set of wheels.

In the last few days, car makers have been rushing to launch money off incentives.

It comes as the “toughest ever” new-car emissions tests begin to be rolled out. Car manufacturers have been under increasing political pressure, especially in Germany, to encourage consumers to buy less polluting cars

But it could also provide a boost to new car sales which saw a nine per cent drop in July.

Here’s our guide to what’s currently on offer and what you could be entitled to:
