Clever buyers gave realised that the current trend of weak new-car sales, there’s a few more bargains around. Some manufacturers have jumped in with free servicing and others with bonus car offers. There’s a lot of offers and great new car deals in Australia from your nearest dealership today so now’s the time to buy.
Holden has some great best new-car deals on three of its top-selling models with free servicing for up to an amazing seven years really giving budget-conscious motorists a handy no-cost ownership bonus. Its Colorado ute range comes with free three-year scheduled servicing that will save buyers $1197 in maintenance.
That comes on top of the ute pricing including all on-road costs, saving a further sum of about $5000. All utes are dual-cab with automatic and with the 2.8-litre turbo-diesel engine and 4WD. The Colorado offer is on the LS ute that starts at $42,990 drive away, and the three-year service deal. The better-equipped LTZ variant has a similar specification and is now $49,990 drive away, while the top-shelf Z71 is $54,990 including the on-road costs and free servicing.
Based on the Colorado ute, the Trailblazer shares the drivetrain and off-road capability, adding a coil suspension system at the rear for greater occupant comfort. The Trailblazer wagon seats seven and has automatic transmission and 4WD. Prices start at $46,990 for the LT including on-road costs (saving about $5000) and an even more impressive seven-year free scheduled service bonus that saves $3033 over the period.
The more speccy LTZ is $52,990 drive away and for the buyer that wants it all, the Storm is $54,990 and the Z71 is $54,490. Then there’s the more urban SUV, the seven-seat Acadia. It also gets seven years of free scheduled servicing and all on-road costs. The servicing saves $2153 with about $5000 extra in on-road costs.
All have a 3.6-litre V6 petrol engine and nine-speed automatic transmission. Acadia costs $43,990 for the LT front-wheel drive version and $47,990 for the all-wheel drive (AWD) version. The more upmarket LTZ is $54,990 for the front-drive and $58,990 for the AWD, while the premium LTZ-V is $64,990 front-drive and $68,990 for the AWD.
Kia follows Holden with a similar free scheduled service deal, this time for three years and on its Sorento SUV model. But the servicing isn’t all - Kia has thrown in a free entertainment pack, ideally for the kids as it sits in the rear seats and is probably lining up to be a parent’s best friend.
The pack includes two Apple iPad 32GB WiFi units, two Kia iPad cradles that are professionally installed, and two JBL wireless headphones. Kia will also offer some of the best car finance deals with a low-cost finance product. So the three bonus extras, well four including the inclusive drive-away costs, applies to the Sorento range, with seven seats, eight-speed automatic transmission and either a 3.3-litre V6 petrol or 2.2-litre turbo-diesel engine.
The entry-level Si is now $43,990 drive away for the petrol with front-wheel drive (FWD) and the diesel all-wheel drive (AWD) is $46,990. One step up is the SLi at $49,990 (petrol) and $52,990 (diesel AWD) and then the Sport that is, respectively, $46,490 and $49,990. The more luxurious GT-Line is $57,990 for the petrol V6 and $61,490 for the diesel.
Kia is also putting its Carnival eight-seat van on the deal list, also offering petrol and diesel versions, and all with an eight-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive.
The enticement is the included on-road costs and also a $777 bonus. It starts with the Carnival S at $45,490 drive away for the 3.3-litre V6 petrol, and $47,990 for the diesel.
Then there’s the Si at $50,990 (petrol) and $53,490 (diesel) and then the SLi at $55,490 (petrol) and $57,990 (diesel). The best equipped is the Platinum that is $63,290 for the V6 petrol and $65,790 for the diesel.
Honda isn’t leaving the party, joining the trend with a free scheduled service offer that lasts for up to 30,000km or 24 months from the warranty start date. Just watch this date because some cars - from any brand - can sit around for a while with the warranty clock ticking down before you buy it. Anyway, the free servicing also comes with drive away pricing.
The deal on the CR-V covers all variants and the service saving is $936 for the period, plus about $4000 for the on-road costs, so it’s a decent saving of about $5000. All except the Vi have a 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engine and automatic transmission with front-wheel drive.
The top-end LX and S have AWD. The entry-level CR-V is the Vi that has an aspirated 2.0-litre petrol engine. It is $30,990 drive away plus the free servicing. The next version, the VTi, gets the turbo-petrol engine (and better fuel economy) and is $33,590.
There is four more variants for plenty of buyer choice, leading through the VTi-E ($38,578), VTi-L ($43,271), and the AWD VTi-S at $37,328 and AWD VTi-LX at $48,990. There are seven-seat options - the VTi-E7 and VTi-L7 - available but not included in this service deal. Want something smaller?
The HR-V comes only with five seats, automatic transmission and front-wheel drive yet is almost as roomy inside as the CR-V. It’s a great pick for a family. The HR-V also gets a free scheduled service offer and all on-road costs. The service offer will save $1029 for the 30,000km or 24-month period.
It opens with the VTi at $26,990, then VTi-S at $31,809, RS (arguably the best pick) at $35,977 and VTi-LX at $38,687. Visit the Honda dealer this weekend and get in quick!
