EOFY bargains on hatchbacks

Looking for a deal on a hatch? We’ve gathered the best of the financial new year bargains right here

With the car industry experiencing a soft start to the selling year, a lot of companies are increasingly keen to move a raft of new cars, as the end of the financial year draws near.

As well, an increase in cars already in stock in Australia (known in the trade as ‘cars on grass’) means that there’s more than one way to save money on a new car at EOFY time.

MORE Why EOFY is a great time to buy a car

Of course, there are plenty of cars on yards across the country looking for new homes, too, so getting the best deal on a new car might be a matter of actually hitting the high street.

Tax time is a great chance to maximise those tax deductions for the financial year, and there are plenty of offers and factory discounts going around. Get that tax calculator warmed up to make the business’s bottom line look better, or make the most of that tax return with a good deal on a new car.
