Around 125,000 buyers will drive away with a new vehicle this June and many will have scooped up one of the excellent new car offers for the month as dealers quit stock before the end of the financial year 2019.
Last June, 126,069 new cars, SUVs and commercial vehicles (excluding heavy trucks) found owners to make it one of the busiest on record.
Now it’s on again. Some of the best car deals Australia has to offer for the EOFY car sales are in SUVs and here’s a sample.
Get value with Hyundai this month as the financial year ends with a mid-size Tucson SUV that adds almost $3800 of free accessories and others that have cash bonuses.
The accessories are 17-inch satin black alloy wheels, Motrex front and rear dash cameras, sports side steps and a front alloy nudge bar finished in black.
The Style is based on the Tucson Go that is also being led out the showroom door with prices starting at $27,990 drive-away for the six-speed manual front-wheel drive version.
Drive it away before June 30 and the incentive is a $1000 cash bonus.
The Go automatic is also included in Hyundai’s EOFY deals, now $29,990 drive-away plus the $1000 bonus. There’s even a diesel version of the Go at $35,290 including on-road costs and on top of the $1000 bonus.
Hyundai’s latest small SUV, the Kona, goes under the hammer as the financial year ends with lots of savings and even some extra cash thrown in.
The Kona Go has a 2.0-litre petrol engine and six-speed automatic for $25,990 drive-away and comes with a $500 cash bonus.
It’s not quite Bastille Day but the French are already playing with sharp objects and have chopped a bit off the retail price of a selected model and the rest come inclusive with on-road costs.
The 3008 GT automatic turbo-diesel is now $55,480 drive-away and includes a panoramic opening-glass electric sunroof, Nappa leather upholstery and trim, and a massage function for the driver’s seat.
This is the flagship 3008 version that normally sells for $50,990 before on-road costs and without the extra features. The drive-away pricing applies to SUV models including the 2008 that opens at $26,990 for the automatic, and from $32,990 for the better-equipped 2008 GT-Line.
Seems like a good time to get into a Subaru Outback - the Japanese maker's best mid-size SUV - that now comes with on-road costs and even two years of free scheduled servicing for the 2.5i version of the standard and Premium grades.
The price is now $39,990 drive-away for the standard and $45,990 for the Premium. Differences between the two include the Premium’s blind-spot monitor, satellite navigation, leather upholstery and sunroof.
It is also made more appealing with some EOFY deals that open with the 110TDI diesel version priced from $53,218 drive-away for the Comfortline grade. The wagon also comes with a $2500 factory bonus that’s as good as a tax refund.
The Allspace is also available with the more powerful 132TSI turbo-petrol engine that is priced from $50,582 drive-away. No cash bonus for this one, however buyers get three years (or 45,000km) of free scheduled servicing.
Features of the Allspace include satellite navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, seven seats, automated parking system, 18-inch alloys, front and rear parking sensors and an autonomous emergency braking system.
Free metallic paint and on-road costs are on offer at Toyota on its range of Kluger seven-seat SUVs. That’s a saving of about $6000 and starts with the GX with front-wheel drive at $43,990 and the all-wheel drive version for $47,990.
There’s more equipment in the GXL that is $54,990 (FWD) and $58,990 (AWD), while the flagship Grande is $64,990 (FWD) and $68,990 (AWD).
While features and equipment vary across the three grades, the engine and transmission do not. So you get pretty much the same performance and fuel economy regardless of the grade. All come with a 3.5-litre V6 petrol engine with an eight-speed automatic.
The EOFY period could be the best time to get one in your garage.
Prices for some of the 2018-built vehicles start at $73,564 drive-away for the 2.0-litre turbo-petrol model with all-wheel drive and eight-speed automatic transmission.
It also comes with a decent incentive of three years free scheduled servicing, a five-year warranty and roadside assistance package, and the option of a special finance deal.
The offer also applies to the turbo-diesel version that gets all the bonus features and costs from $75,680.
There is also the mid-spec Ti priced from $88,474. For those with the need for speed and the means to pay for it, there are some 2018-built Quadrifoglio versions with a twin-turbo 2.9-litre petrol V6 engine and a heap of standard features available for a hefty $165,657 drive-away, but none of the incentives of its lesser siblings.
