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.

Nissan Leaf

If you've been thinking of going electric the Nissan Leaf may be the way to go.

Electric vehicles are all the rage. Apparently. And if you have a hankering to commute silently, to enjoy the cost-saving benefits of plugging in the car, and to revel in finally disregarding petrol stations, the Nissan Leaf may be the way to go.

This is one of the best EV hatchbacks with five doors and all the upmarket features for the family - leather, sat-nav and a top-shelf infotainment system - and has a 315km range before needing a recharge. The charge is now $53,190 drive-away. This is a healthy saving of $3042 over the normal price.
