Best deals on medium and large SUVs for EOFY 2022

0

JThe lingering effect of widespread supply chain issues has hurt traditional end-of-year (EOFY) sales in the automotive industry, but there are still a few deals to close in 2022.

Typically, new-car buyers can consider buying a vehicle before June 30, as automakers aim to clear as much inventory as possible before the start of the new fiscal year.

However, the COVID-19 pandemic has caused widespread supply issues due to production and shipping constraints, largely caused by a shortage of semiconductor chips, leading many brands to increase vehicle prices – and disposal offers.

The good news is that if you’re looking to get a bargain on a brand new medium or large SUV in Australia, deals can still be had at Alfa Romeo, BMW, Hyundai, Isuzu Ute, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Peugeot and Skoda – well that most are not specifically called “EOFY” economies.

The news is less favorable for buyers planning to buy a medium or large SUV from Audi, Ford, Haval, Honda, Jaguar, Jeep, Land Rover, MG, Ssangyong, Toyota, Volkswagen and Volvo.

Honda thinks EOFY sales are irrelevant given its ‘price promise’ – having changed to a fixed-price agency model at the start of the current financial year – while the other brands said no transaction was only scheduled for 2022.

GWM Haval said it seeks to “offer the best possible drive-in price to all customers at all times”, with the entry-level H6 Premium permanently listed at $33,990 drive-in.
