So, 2019 is done and dusted and now there's a string of bargain buys as dealers and carmakers quit their 2019-plated models.
At this time of year in Australia, most models are designated as 2020 model year versions so they'll be identical to the equivalents made this month. The good news is that a number on the build plate can save you heaps.
Combine this with the inclusion of drive-away costs, as well as some car finance offers, and there's even better reason to visit your car dealer today or this weekend.
To tempt buyers across the line this month, there's also three years of free scheduled servicing and an accessory pack valued at $5000.
This 'Veloce Pack' includes leather upholstery, heated front seats, heated steering wheel, 19-inch five-hole dark alloy wheels, red-painted brake calipers, Koni 'Frequency Selective Damping' suspension, aluminium pedals and gloss black side-window surrounds.
All this is included in two of Alfa's base model Stelvio variants, with the 2.0-litre turbo-petrol version now including drive-away costs and all those goodies priced from $68,300.
The free servicing saves $1455, the registration (depending on the state) is about $4500 and the $5000 Veloce Pack adds up to almost $11,000 - a decent discount in anyone's book. Buyers also have a diesel option with the same deal on the Stelvio 2.2-litre turbo-diesel, now priced from $69,900.
Key to the incentive is a seven year/150,000km warranty and two years of free servicing. Some variants come with premium paint included at no extra cost. Then there's the free on-road costs, as well. All up, buyers are looking at savings of up to $4000.
The two years of free servicing will save buyers of the petrol Outlander almost $400, and the diesel buyers are $600 better off.
The deal opens with the base 2020 Model Year (but built in 2019) Outlander at $28,990 drive-away, including the extended warranty and free servicing. This is for the ES front-wheel drive manual with the 2.0-litre petrol engine and with five seats.
Probably better for families is the ES automatic with seven seats and the bigger 2.4-litre petrol engine that is now $31,490 including all the offers.
For a bit more bling, there's the ES Black Edition with seven seats and the 2.4-litre engine at $33,690 and on top of the servicing and long warranty, gets premium paint for free (normally $740).
The Outlander ES five-seater with ADAS (comprehensive safety pack) is $34,190 with servicing and warranty and on-road costs.
The flagship Exceed 2.4 is now from $46,190 and the Exceed diesel - which now includes free metallic paint - is from $49,690. The plug-in hybrid Outlander PHEV is also discounted, with free premium paint and on-road costs. It misses out on the long warranty and free servicing. Prices are $51,390 for the ES PHEV and $60,390 for the Exceed version.
Looking for a commercial van for your business? Fiat has trimmed pricing and included drive-away pricing on its small-van Doblo and its larger Ducato, saving up to around $13,000 (depending on state).
The Doblo opens at $23,950 drive-away for the 1.4-litre petrol manual that has 3400 litres of cargo area. The same van comes with a diesel engine and automatic transmission priced from $24,990 drive-away. It has a recommended price of $27,000 plus on-road costs. The diesel seems perfect for a business on a budget with a fuel economy claim of only 5.4 L/100km.
The bigger Ducato comes in short wheelbase, medium wheelbase, long wheelbase and extra-long wheelbase versions. All have a 2.3-litre turbo-diesel engine with manual or optional automatic transmissions.
The SWB manual, low roof is $39,950 drive-away, saving about $8000. The auto version is $42,850. For extra room there's the MWB manual at $42,790 and $45,690 for the auto, while the LWB mid-roof is $46,090 and $48,990 respectively, saving about $10,000. The ELWB is $50,990 in automatic only, saving about $13,000.
Audi has a deal on its A5 sport-hatch that saves a whopping $12,760. The A5 45 TFSI is usually $90,760 drive-away but is now $79,990 including on-road costs and free metallic paint. Normally throwing in a premium paint is no big deal, but in the Audi's case, it is usually $1990.
The A5 45 has all-wheel drive, a turbo-petrol four-cylinder engine, seven-speed auto transmission and heaps of features.
There's also a price trim for the A4 35 TFSI sedan, now $57,990 drive-away with free metallic paint ($1990) and including the Audi assistance package.
This safety-focused pack normally costs $1900 and has adaptive cruise control, active lane assist, collision warning and avoidance, turn assist to avoid collisions at intersections, and high-beam headlight assist.
The base A4 35TFSI is normally from $56,100 plus on-road costs so the savings are about $7200.
