Best EOFY 2020 deals: Hatchbacks

Hyundai’s i30 can be had in base Go trim for just under $22,000 drive-away.

Hatchbacks are renowned for their zippy road manners, great fuel economy and easy-to-park dimensions, making them perfect for commuting and getting around the suburbs.

And there is no better time for dealers and manufacturers to push their popular hatchback models than the end of financial year, so there’s lots of bargains around.

You can save up to $5000 off the list price of some hatchback models around the country, so here are a few of the best hatch deals that are available in the lead up to the end of June.

VW Golf

If you’ve always wanted a Golf GTI, now is the time.

Volkswagen is awaiting the Mk8 Golf and while they’re waiting, they’re discounting. Its range is dominated by the Golf hatch and opens this month with a $4944 slice off the normal $29,934 price for the 110 TSI Trendline manual, bringing it down to $24,990 drive-away.

You’d probably want an auto, though, so there’s the same version with a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox for $26,990 drive-away, a saving of $5028 or 15.7 per cent.

Want more features? The Comfortline edition has more gear including sat-nav and climate air-con and the same 1.4-litre turbo-petrol engine and seven-speed auto for $30,490, saving 17.6 per cent or $3612. Even more features? The Highline adds a sunroof, leather seats, LED headlights and self-parking for $35,490 drive-away, cutting 17 per cent or $3974 off the normal price.

What about performance? If you’ve always wanted a Golf GTI, now is the time. Volkswagen has it on the lot for $53,143, slashing $4153 (or 7.8%) off the recommended sticker price. Then there’s the even more powerful all-wheel-drive Golf R now at $55,990 (saving $6608 or 10.6%).

VW Polo

The Polo GTI is bigger than ever before, and more practical than ever, too.

Want something smaller than the Golf? What about the sporty Polo GTI that is now $31,990 drive-away, saving about $3500 off the normal price.

Hyundai i30

There are some great EOFY deals for the whole i30 range.

Hyundai has some keen deals on its mainstream i30 range, including the cheapest of the line-up. The Go with manual transmission is down to $21,190 drive-away, saving $2710 or 11.3 per cent. Move up to the Active variant with automatic transmission and spend $25,480, down from the normal price of $27,483 to cut 7.3 per cent off the sticker.

These have the aspirated 2.0-litre engine so for a lot more mumbo in the same body, try the N-Line with a 1.6-litre turbo-petrol engine and six-speed auto that is now $33,903 drive-away. This cuts a lot off the acceleration time and about $3500 off the normal price.

Mercedes-Benz A-Class

Mercedes is slashing almost $4000 on one of its hatches. (a250e model shown)

Move up in the world with a three-pointed star on the grille for an outlay of as little as $52,900 drive-away. The Mercedes-Benz A180 hatch comes with automatic transmission and a 1.3-litre turbo-petrol engine and heaps of safety equipment.

It even has Mercedes’ latest five-year warranty. Mercedes is also throwing in at no cost two packages - the Seat Comfort Package (electric seats, heating for the front seats, and a reverse parking mode for the passenger mirror) that is normally $1290; and the Vision Package (high-beam assist, LED headlights, panoramic sunroof and 360-degree camera) that has an option price of $2490. The saving is $3780.

BMW 1 Series

BMW is joining the EOFY party with the 118i.

BMW has also come to the hatchback party with its 118i, now discounted by 4.6 per cent to $49,900 drive-away. The price includes BMW’s Enhancement Package - sunroof and metallic paint - at no extra cost. It is usually $2900.

The 118i is a front-wheel drive small four-door hatchback with a 1.5-litre turbo-petrol three-cylinder engine and automatic transmission.

Honda Civic

Honda is applying its generous seven-year warranty to many of its cars this month.

The Honda Civic is also on the block with most variants now including on-road costs. The best deal is the VTi with a 1.8-litre engine and automatic transmission. This is usually $26,391 but is now $25,390 drive-away, saving $1001, plus Honda includes (on most cars) its antimicrobial shield, an in-cabin sanitiser that eliminates smells and kills bacteria.

Sure is a good idea in the current environment. Honda is also applying its generous seven-year unlimited distance warranty with seven-year premium roadside assistance pack to many of its cars this month.

Abarth 595

Abarth is offering savings of at least 9 percent for the 595.

The Abarth 595, which is based heavily on the Fiat 500, comes as a base version that starts at $28,450 drive-away for the manual. That saves $3151 or 10 per cent.

There is a convertible version as well that is now at $31,450, a cut of $3277 or 9.4 per cent. There is the more equipment-heavy Competizione version that has extra gear including leather upholstery - but the same drive train - that is priced in hatch and convertible guises at $33,450 and $37,450 respectively.

The savings are $3361 for the hatch and $3529 for the convertible, or about nine per cent. The Abarth has a 1.4-litre turbo-petrol engine.
