When is the best time to buy a cheap sedan or hatch?

I'm looking to buy a demo 2016 Mitsubishi Mirage, or any other cheap hatchback/sedan near the $10,000 mark. Being new to Australia, when would be the best time to buy a cheap one from a sale? December or January?

There's no set time that's best. Carmakers are having sales all the time, with special deals etc., but if you're looking to buy a demo then keep an eye out for the model run-out sales when dealers are looking to offload their demos. Watch for carmakers advertising great deals and read the motoring press to see when they're likely to be releasing a new or updated model. May or June, around the end of the financial year is often a good time to pounce.
