Huge car savings for Armed Forces

Armed Forces personnel and their families can enjoy as much as £7,170 off the price of a new car this year, according to defence minister Anna Soubry.

The Defence Discount Service Car Programme offers unique savings to members of the Armed Forces and on average they can get £3,250 off the price of a new car.

Among the car firms showing their support for those who serve in the Forces are SEAT, Peugeot, Renault and Kia. The biggest bargains are on MPVs.

Under the initiative SEAT is knocking up to £7,170 off an Alhambra, while those wanting to drive a Peugeot 5008 can have as much as £6,100 off.

Renault Scenics or Clios are available with up to £4,300 and £2,400 off respectively. Kia is taking as much as £3,500 off its Sportage 4x4 and up to £3,200 off the price of a Carens MPV.

More than 2,500 companies of all kinds are supporting the Armed Forces community through the Defence Discount Service, which started back in October 2012.
