Renault do not produce Literature. The Clio and Captur prices remain stable, the Kadjar prices are all over. The Petrol car has seen reductions in across the trims and is now available as an automatic from £995. The Diesel car has seen an increase of up to £600. Due to the uncertain future of Diesels and their potential resale value in three years time we are seemingly being forced into petrol engined cars, it’s not just the Scheme being affected Diesel powered car sales are down 10% so far this year on last year.


Nissan Q3 Prices

Nissan have produced their Literature and clicking on the Logo will open it up, The New Prices for the face lifted Qashqai are included. The X-trail prices remain stable and only the Acenta trim is on offer, it remains good value with prices starting at £649. The Pulsar remains overpriced.

Mercedes Q3 Prices

Mercedes prices increased by between £50 and £200. The A Class hit the hardest, you now have to really want the three pointed star as the prices are hard to justify. Sadly the only Full Electric car, the B-Class Electric Art, has been removed from the Scheme. Boo.


Mazda Q3 Prices

Mazda have the new CX-5 in the Showrooms (not added to Scheme) and clearly have decided to take some time away from the Scheme as they have increased prices by a huge amount, the Mazda3 as an automatic has been increased by £1500. The Mazda 6 only increased by what seems a reasonable £500 in comparison.


Abarth Q3 Prices

The Fiat 500 based Abarth 595 remains on the Scheme as a Manual or Automatic hardtop car for Nil Advance Payment.  If you can fit into the small beast it’s just about the most fun to be had, one of a very few cars that can raise a smile before you even squeeze yourself inside. The rag top is also available for £149 or £199 as auto. Read more here.

Vauxhall Crossland X

The Crossland X is the Meriva replacement, similar in size to the Mokka X with more of a MPV slant. The rear seats slide on rails to either maximise rear legroom or give the most possible boot space. When slid fully forward the Crossland X has a 520-litre boot – 143 litres larger than the Renault Captur. The first car to be launched by Vauxhall since joining the Citroen/Peugeot stable the Crossland will take the excellent 1.2 litre petrol engine used across the smaller French cars.

Audi A3 Saloon

Thank you to the emailer who gave us news that the A3 Saloon is heading our way. No news on prices or trims but suspect the 1.5 litre petrol engine in Sport trim.




New Motability Prices 1st July 2017 (Quarter 3 Summer)

New Motability Prices

New Prices (Summer) released 1st July 2017

New Motability prices will be published on Saturday 1st July 2017. Quarter 3 (Summer) prices run from 1st July through to September 30th 2017.

We will update you on all the movements (up and down) on this page, we will continue to post the War Pension (WPMS) prices alongside the DLA/PIP prices. WPMS weekly payments increased on the 10th April by 65p per week to £64.80 compared to a 55p weekly increase to DLA/PIP to £58.00. Advance Payments are around £1000 less than those of DLA/PIP.  Even with this extra award there are no more cars available to War Pensioners.

Every movement up or down on the previous price can be tracked with our little arrows. means the price has increased (if you place your mouse on the arrow you can see by how much the price has increased) and if the price has decreased you will see a green arrow Price reduced from previous quarter price or is there is no change in price the arrows will be side by side .

Price Cap

January 2017 gave us a new retail price cap of £28 000 for Manual gearbox vehicles and £29 500 for Automatics and an instant cull of 335 vehicles, in order to provide customers with cars that offer a high seating position and room for a large family the Seat Alhambra and Ford Galaxy are on the Scheme with certain models over this cap figure.


Computers Down

The Motability ordering system is ‘down’ for planned maintenance from 4pm Friday 30th June until 8am Wednesday 5th July and during this period your dealer will not be able to process any new orders, amend any existing orders or carry out any handovers or returns. We have been told to expect disruption either side of these dates due to increased volume of order processing. You will still be able to visit dealerships during these dates for test drives and browsing but not to place an order.



Skoda Kodiaq

The much anticipated and well received Skoda Kodiaq will not be added to the July 1st pricing. Brisk retail sales have led to a full order book, the main production plant, Kvasiny in the Czech Republic, also has a 2-3 week shutdown period in July for machinery maintenance and staff holidays. The Kodiaq will be a very popular addition to the Scheme and the extra orders would push the delivery times out too far, from the Kodiaq forums we can see customers are presently being advised a 20 week delivery for some models.


Peugeot 5008

The UK release of the big Peugeot has been delayed, now pushed back to late 2017.  We have our doubts that it will ever make its way onto the Scheme, if it does it will be in 2018.



Mazda CX-5

Open for retail sales now and rushed into showrooms across the country earlier than we expected, some have them to view now. With a starting price of £23 695 it should be well represented on the Scheme. Standard equipment includes LED headlights, auto power-folding door mirrors, dual-zone climate control, DAB radio and a seven inch colour touch-screen display with Mazda’s integrated navigation.


Nissan Qashqai

The top selling SUV is having a mid life upgrade from July. The changes are evolutionary rather than revolutionary, comprising the usual stuff of new lights front and back, a revised grille, new wheels and paint colours and an improved interior promising a more premium feel and kitted out with all the latest tech. Nissan has added a new Tekna+ trim level which features a panoramic glass roof, Bose stereo and a unique design for the Nappa leather-clad seats.


Suzuki Swift

The latest Swift makes use of the same lightweight construction as the Baleno, so it sheds about 10 per cent of its mass compared with the outgoing model. Indeed, with kerbweights as low as 890kg, it’s just about the lightest offering in the class. On paper, the new car’s dimensions look encouraging; it’s actually about 10mm shorter than the outgoing Swift, but crucially, its wheelbase is 20mm longer – a tweak designed to improve cabin space. Boot capacity increases by 54 litres too (now 264 litres), although it still falls short of what you’ll find in a Ford Fiesta or Kia Rio.


New Cars added April – June 2017

Cars added to the Scheme recently include:

Vauxhall Insignia

Built up from an extended Astra Platform the new Insignia is available as a Grand Sport (fancy new name for hatchback) or Sports Tourer (Estate) and both really do ‘cut a dash’ The coupe-esque styling has been achieved by lowering the roofline, extending the wheelbase to shorten the car’s overhangs and by broadening the body to give it a more aggressive stance. The front grille (Mazda 6) is more upright than the previous incarnation giving a far more distinctive front end. Boot space (490 litres), with the seats up, is less than that of the Skoda Superb (625 litres) and Ford Mondeo (550 litres) and even the outgoing Insignia (530 litres).  Prices for the New Insignia start at£1099 Advance payment


Ford Fiesta

The new Fiesta’s mechanical underpinnings are an evolution of the outgoing car which is not a bad thing as its handling and comfort were never in question. Design-wise, things are also familiar, particularly when viewed dead on from the front but the 2017 Fiesta is a sharper-looking car, with more decisively styled lights and a more assertive grille. Internally the dashboard is less button-heavy and cluttered than the outgoing car and while all Fiestas feature a touchscreen, Ford has sensibly left physical buttons for the heating, ventilation and air-conditioning.


Honda HRV

After nearly two years of waiting the Honda HRV has sneaked onto the Scheme, we would have expected a fanfare, bunting and a national holiday. Two engines, the 128 Brake horse power 1.5 litre petrol in S or SE trim the latter trim available with an automatic gearbox (£2749 Advance Payment), the 118 brake horse power 1.6 litre diesel engine is only available with a manual gearbox in S (£1499 Advance Payment) or SE trim at £1799 Advance Payment, the same price as the 1.5 litre petrol manual cars.


Honda Civic

The new Swindon built Civic is lower, longer and wider than its predecessor, this tenth version incorporates the new generation 7″ Honda CONNECT in-car audio and information system with DAB digital radio, Apple Carplay and Android Auto to pair your phone. The 128bhp 1.0 litre three cylinder turbo charged petrol engine has received rave reviews with 58.9 mpg claimed. It is available as a 6 speed manual or CVT automatic that can reach 62mph in 10.8 seconds. The 1.5 litre petrol with 180bhp can reach 62 in 8.2 seconds and is on the Scheme as a CVT auto at £2499 Advance Payment or £1999 as a manual. Prices start for the 1.0 litre at £299 Advance Payment for the SE car as a manual or £599 as an Auto.


Renault Grand Scenic

You get seven seats and a great looking car loaded with the latest technology, sadly the 1.5 litre diesel with 108 brake horse power is the only option to mobility customers which while able to return a claimed 70.6 miles per gallon with a full car it will struggle a little. Prices start at £1945 Advance Payment for the Manual and £2595 for the Automatic. It is a lovely car but if you need a big one the Seat Alhambra at £899 has a better engine, more room and is £899 Advance payment Auto or Manual.


Nissan Micra

Nissan have finally replaced that Micra and have made a pretty good shove at it, they have made it all funky with sleek lines and hidden rear door handles, judging by the advertising they are targeting a younger buyer. Two cars available both manual transmission, n-connecta at £199 advance Payment and Tekna at £399. We did not think we would see the Micra on the Scheme so quickly they have only just been arriving at Port.



Still waiting for:

Mazda CX-3

With the launch of the New CX-5 imminent, this would be a perfect time for the super CX-3 to make its debut. We have been waiting so long for the CX-3 that it is due a midlife upgrade later this year!




Audi Q2

Audi are never one to rush new cars onto the Scheme but enough time has passed for the baby SVU to make its entrance.
