I'm interested in buying a new Kia Rio, diesel, using the scrappage deal. What is the best price I should expect to get? And would I be better dealing with a main Kia dealer as opposed to an Opel dealer? The main dealer is a 40-minute drive from me.

The Rio is very good value under the scrappage scheme so I can understand your interest in it. You are getting a five-door family car for €10,565 (excluding delivery and related charges) under the scheme:
The thing about scrappage is that the discount given by the Government is one part, the discount from the car firm is another; whether or not you will get further discount on top of this from the dealer is debatable. We will check in with Kia to see if you get the same level of discount from an Opel dealer - it may well be restricted to Kia outlets.
Let us come back to you on this one.Answered by: Complete Car Adviser
