Both the car-buying public and manufacturers are finding it difficult to connect with one another at the moment.
While we all still need each other, WhichCar has taken the initiative to set up this page here to share some of the deals that manufacturers are running.
This page will be continually updated in an effort to keep on top of current deals and promotions car makers are offering in Australia.
This page was updated Thursday 5 November 2020.
The prices shown in this story have been researched via manufacturer websites and were correct at the time of publication. This story offers no guarantee of price or ability to supply at an indicated price.
Alfa Romeo's eye-catching Giulia isn't selling as well as the company hopes, so it's got a few specials on to hurry things along. The (MY19) Giulia Veloce is now $72,900 driveaway, down from $72,900 (before on-road costs).
Demo versions of the diesel version of Alfa Romeo's five-seat, five-door SUV is now priced from $49,900 driveaway.

BMW is offering the X5 xDrive30d M Sport at $119,900 driveaway, instead of roughly $130,000 after on-road costs. Use that extra $10k+ to add in a few extra option packages, we reckon.
