Gym-goers won’t be the only people shedding pounds this January – customers choosing a new ? koda will also be able to save thousands on the price of a new car. Thanks to a further extension of ? koda’s highly successful VAT-free campaign, the introduction of new finance schemes and a fixed-price service plan, buyers looking to pick up a New Year sales bargain are in for a treat.

While many car manufacturers are raising their prices across the board to take into account the rise in VAT, ? koda is actually increasing the coverage of its No VAT offer.

The VAT-free offer is available on all Fabia and Roomster models, as well as Octavia and Superb petrol models, meaning that buyers can make potential savings of ?£3,388. As before, there’s nothing complicated about the deal ?­â€“ customers pay for the car, ? koda takes care of the VAT.

For used vehicles, Skoda has extended its fixed-price service plan. The scheme, which allows owners to get up to 2 years of servicing for a fixed fee of ?£299, has been extended to include used vehicles up to six years old. What’s more, customers buying a used ? koda before 31 January 2011 will also get a ?£100 voucher, to be redeemed at their local ? koda retailer on parts, accessories or merchandise.

Finally, ? koda’s affordable finance schemes continue into 2011. With a bank-busting APR rate of just 5.9 per cent, ? koda’s hire purchase (HP) offer is well below anything customers can find on the high street. It means that customers can buy a better-specified car than they might otherwise be able to afford, another example of ? koda’s great value.

? koda’s Solutions Personal Contract Plan (PCP) attracts a 7.9 per cent APR, is very flexible and allows drivers to drive off in a new ? koda for the cost of one month’s payment as a deposit. Both the HP and PCP offers can be combined with ? koda’s outstanding VAT-free campaign.
