More best new car deals are being offered by car manufacturers and dealers as Christmas approaches.
Historically, this is the time when some of the best new car deals are on the table to give customers a Christmas bonus, together with the end-of-year sales.
It is also approaching the time when the 2019-build plated vehicles will start to play second fiddle with their incoming 2020-plated siblings, so get ready for even more bargains through January and February.
Smart buyers could even leverage that to whittle a few more dollars off the November and December sales for great car-finance deals. Customers are having it all their way as 2019 ends, so today or this weekend is the time to search for a great deal.

Mercedes-Benz has massaged the price of its B-Class family wagon with the B180 now $52,900, including drive-away pricing (saving about $3000) and the Sports Package, valued at $1990. So, all up, a saving of about $5000.

The B180 has a 1.3-litre 100kW/200Nm four-cylinder turbo-petrol engine, driving the front wheels through a seven-speed automatic.
