The next few months will bring much excitement for Dealers and buyers alike with a raft of fresh makes and models on the horizon.
Dealers and consumers have plenty of reasons to look forward to the next few months as Australia sees a variety of new models arrive on our shores. From exciting SUVs, to hot looking hatches, buyers continue to be spoilt for choice in what is one of the most diverse markets in the world.
Mercedes-Benz admirers are sure to be impressed with a facelift of the popular C-Class, while the arrival of the GLA, the Benz compact SUV offering, will offer buyers another option in this strong segment. The 250 4MATIC version is due in July, but it looks like the AMG 45 variant won’t arrive until September.
A couple of additions to the hatch segment are on the way, including the hotly anticipated five-door city hatch BMW i3. The i3 is set to be one of the year’s most provocative arrivals, as the luxury brand forays deeper into electric car territory.
For buyers with a smaller budget, the new generation Honda Jazz has even more to offer this time around, while Mitsubishi presents us with a sedan version of the light Mirage hatch in the Japanese brand’s new Attrage.
Speaking of sedans, Hyundai’s Genesis sedan – a large rear-drive offering, will be sure to create a stir as the Korean manufacturer goes from strength to strength.
For buyers after something quick, BMW’s new M3 sedan will make an impact as will the M4 coupe. Alfa Romeo has also been counting down to the arrival of its 4C Coupe, expected to deliver supercar performance with the sleek style that Alfa Romeo is renowned.
It’s safe to say that July through September will shake up the industry with the arrival of these exciting new models, reinjecting interest in the market at this third quarter juncture.
