Volkswagen has come up with a short list of models that need to be swept off the showroom floor with substantial savings of up to $6000 and some of the best new car finance deals. All the models on the chopping block are current.
The seven-seat Tiguan Allspace Comfortline is perfect for the growing family with a 1.4-litre turbo-petrol engine, automatic transmission and front-wheel drive that is normally $40,490 plus on-road costs, but now $39,990 drive-away to save about $3500.
With similar room and all-wheel drive plus a powerful engine, the Golf Alltrack wagon is a great alternative for the SUV, though has only five seats. It has a 1.8-litre turbo-petrol engine rated at 132kW, the 4Motion all-wheel-drive system, automatic transmission and a high stance for some off-bitumen ability. It is usually $36,190 plus on-road costs (around $3000) but now $34,990 drive-away, saving about $4200.
Another wagon is the Passat 140TSI, with a 2.0-litre engine and seven-speed automatic transmission now on sale for $44,990 drive-away, saving about $6000. A similar discount is also on the Passat sedan with the same engine that is now $42,990 drive-away.
Last is the Polo GTI. This pocket rocket has been discounted by about $3500 and is now $31,990 including on-road costs.
Seeking a commercial van for some delivery work? Want a zero-ownership outlay for three years? Peugeot has a great deal on two of its vans, starting with the smaller Partner fitted with a turbo-petrol engine and six-speed manual transmission.
This good-looking van, which shares its platform with the brand’s new 3008 SUV and 508 sedan, comes with a stack of safety gear including autonomous emergency braking, speed sign recognition and lane-departure warning. It has a cargo volume of 3.8 cubic metres and payload of 1000kg. The 1.2-litre engine claims an average of 5.9 l/100km.
The price is now $25,990 drive-away but the car comes with great extras including free scheduled servicing for three years or 15,000km intervals, capped-price service for five years, a five-year roadside assist program and a five-year/200,000km warranty.
Peugeot also has the bigger Expert van with a diesel engine and manual transmission in short-wheelbase form for $39,990 drive-away. This has a cargo volume of 5.8 cubic metres and a payload of 1300kg with double-side sliding doors. It has all the safety gear of the Partner, while fuel economy is claimed at 6.2 l/100km. It also gets the free service deal and long warranty.
Alfa Romeo has some money-crunching deals on its Giulia sedan and Stelvio SUV with the sedan now priced from $72,900 drive-away for the Veloce variant fitted with a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine and eight-speed automatic transmission.
The Veloce is normally $81,144, saving a whopping $8244 or 10 per cent.
The Stevio all-wheel-drive turbo-petrol is now from $66,900 drive-away, saving $6837 or 9.3 per cent, and as an added bonus, comes with a complimentary Veloce pack that comprises leather upholstery, heated front seats, heated steering wheel, 19-inch dark alloy wheels, red brake calipers, Koni dampers, gloss-black window surrounds and alloy pedals. That pack is normally $5000.
It’s also free on the diesel version of the Stelvio, now $67,900 to save $7967, and the upmarket Stelvio Ti edition that is $79,900 to save a huge $8483 or 9.6 per cent.
Jaguar has discounted most of its range by absorbing the GST - effectively saving 10 per cent off the retail price - and has one model that offers even more of a discount. The E-Pace SUV in its P250 Chequered Flag version is now $65,990 drive-away, saving $6386 or 8.8 per cent.
It comes with a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine, nine-speed automatic and all-wheel drive. It also gets a five-year warranty.
The Hyundai Veloster - the world’s only three-door with a hatch - now comes with a $2000 bonus along with drive-away pricing. The base Veloster has a 2.0-litre engine and the choice of manual or automatic transmission and is priced, respectively, at $33,635 and $36,057 plus the $2000 cheque.
More performance to match the car’s profile comes in the Turbo version that is now $39,947 (manual) and $43,103 (auto). The Turbo adds sat-nav, active cruise control, and premium audio with digital radio.
More spec such as wireless smartphone charging, head-up display and sunroof are in the Turbo Premium that is now $43,666 (manual) and $47,051 (auto) drive-away. These also get the $2000 bonus.
