New and even used-car stock is in short supply – but don’t give up on finding a deal today or this weekend because if you look hard, the offers are out there.
Better still, rather than traipse around the dealerships, check out our list of what’s on special this month. Things to look for are demonstrators and vehicles with the previous year build date, as very few models have changed much in the past 12 months.
The best idea is to have a look at the examples on this page and then have a chat to your dealers. They may add even more incentives for your new car.
Mitsubishi has a lot of its models discounted this month with the best deals available on the family-focused Outlander SUV, including its fuel-sipping electrified Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) variant. The PHEV, which has electric motors in tandem with a petrol engine and has an electric-only range of about 54km, is now $51,990 drive-away, reduced $2173.
Drive it 50km and recharge and you may never need fuel, potentially saving you tens of hundreds of dollars a year in petrol. The PHEV is a five-seater, but Mitsubishi does have a range of seven-seat Outlanders with petrol engines starting with the ES with a 2.4-litre petrol engine, automatic transmission and front-wheel drive at $33,990 on the road, saving $4020. There’s also a five-seat version at $32,990 but seven-seat models could be more desirable.
There’s also a seven-seat Black Edition that is an ES with a bit more gear, blacked-out trim and wheels. This is now $35,490 drive-away, saving $4168.
Buyers wanting a diesel also have the Outlander Exceed with a 2.2-litre turbo-diesel, automatic transmission and all-wheel drive – and even seven seats – for $49,990 on the road, a decent saving of $3665. The Exceed gets all the top-shelf features including sunroof, premium audio, LED headlights and leather upholstery.
The deal is for a limited time and includes the Tucson Active with automatic transmission that now starts at $32,990 on the road, down $3097. In addition, Hyundai will give buyers a bonus of $750.
The Active all-wheel-drive version with automatic and a 2.0-litre turbo-diesel engine is also discounted, now $37,990 on the road, a saving of $3904, plus a $750 bonus.
The Active X version adds features above the Active such as leather seats, satellite navigation, and premium audio with a digital radio, for $35,990 as an automatic with the petrol engine. This saves about $3300 and is also eligible for a $750 bonus. There’s also a diesel all-wheel drive Active X at $40,990, down $4240, which also gets the bonus.
The Tucson Elite 2.0-litre petrol automatic is now $42,695 drive-away and nets you a $1500 bonus. The same $1500 bonus is on the turbo-petrol model at $46,056 drive-away and the diesel version at $46,056 and also applies to the top-spec Highlander variants.
Mazda has lobbed some money off two of its popular SUVs with the CX-5 now priced at $38,490 drive-away for the 2.0-litre Maxx Sport automatic front-wheel drive. This saves $2486 off the recommended on-road price.
The all-wheel drive Touring auto model with the bigger 2.5-litre engine is on sale this month for $43,990 (down $2311) and the more lavish GT is $49,490 (down $3249) including on-road costs.
For buyers who want it all, the CX-5 Akera flagship is $52,490 (a saving of $2891) with the 2.5-litre engine and $55,490 (down $2553) for the turbocharged petrol 2.5-litre engine. Prices include on-road costs.
Want more space? Mazda’s lauded CX-8 has seven seats and is on sale priced from $42,990 for the Sport automatic with front-wheel drive. The deal saves $1870. The all-wheel drive CX-8 Sport with 2.2-litre turbo-diesel engine and automatic transmission is now $49,990, down $2749 on the road.
The Sport has features including cloth seats, head-up display, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, satellite navigation and LED headlights. The top-shelf Asaki version of the CX-8 gets all the features and more and is reduced by $4932 to be priced at $68,990 drive-away.
Volkwagen has a deal going on its very popular seven-seat version of its mid-size SUV, the Tiguan. The Tiguan Allspace 110 TSI Comfortline has a 1.4-litre turbo-petrol engine, automatic transmission and front-wheel drive and is now $42,990 drive away, a saving of $3767.
Suzuki is letting its Vitara SUV go with some decent savings for buyers who want a roomy wagon that is just the right size for the city and suburbs.
