Buy last year’s car

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Cover Story -

Buy­ing a demo isn’t the only way to save on a near-new car. Deal­ers are al­ways keen to off-load cars made in the pre­vi­ous year. That’s how 17-year-old Laura Kes­sels (pic­tured left) slashed about $4500 off the price of her new Volk­swa­gen Golf au­to­matic. ‘‘We were set on a Golf. We shopped around Perth to find the best deal and this 2011 model was even cheaper than some 2012 demon­stra­tor cars,’’ says mother Hilde. It’s a smart choice, asVWAus­tralia says the dif­fer­ence be­tween the 2011 and 2012 mod­els is neg­li­gi­ble.
