One of the most unusual things to happen in Australia’s economy since the onset of Covid-19 is the state of the car market. With widespread lockdowns and increasingly common work from home arrangements, there are less people travelling and spending money than ever. This led to a drop in the number of used cars for sale, and this drop in supply led to heightened demand, ultimately making them more expensive across the board. On the other side of the coin, dealers are keeping sales flowing during uncertain times by offering incredible deals on discount new cars. These two factors combined mean the demand for new cars is higher.
So, if you’re thinking of buying a new car, the time to act is now before the post-lockdown road trip rush begins! Here are the best discount new car deals available in Australia.

Renault is offering great deals on the Koleos, its five-seater, front-wheel drive, medium-sized SUV. Based on the popular Nissan X-trail, the Koleos Zen comes with automatic transmission, keyless start and satellite navigation for a drive away price of just over $41,000. You’ll also get a $1,100 bonus when you buy from selected dealers, meaning the discount is around $2,000.
Perfect for people with big families or lots of gear to fit into the car, the Hyundai Palisade is a popular large SUV currently selling with a discount of $3,000 to be spent on genuine accessories.
With eight seats and an eight-speed automatic transmission, you can buy a Palisade with either a 3.8L petrol V6 or 2.2L turbo-diesel engine depending on your preference. The petrol engine model is going for $66,000 and the diesel for $70,894.
