If you’re lucky enough to shop for high-end toys, Volvo has the best deal with the V90 Cross Country at $82,990 drive away with 1.9 per cent finance rate and five-year warranty. That’s a whopping $27,000 off.
Lexus has some sharp deals across the range, starting with the CT 200h hybrid hatch (main picture) for $39,888 drive-away with free prestige paint thrown in. That’s about $6500 off the regular on-road price.
The IS300 sedan can be had for $57,888, almost $9000 off the retail price, while the RX300 family SUV is almost $13,000 off at $69,888 drive-away.
BMW’s 3 Series 330i (inset) with M Sport or Luxury line trim is good value at $67,900 drive-away, a saving of $3000 on the regular retail price.
Land Rover has just released a new Evoque for Christmas, so the old one’s in run-out mode ahead of local deliveries and comes with free servicing for five years, five-year warranty and “savings equivalent to the GST”. I’m no actuary but that sounds like 10 per cent off. Sister brand Jaguar has similar deals on selected models.
Mercedes-Benz has 1.9 per cent interest on finance.
