Volvo V40 T4 Kinetic Hatch $36,888 Driveaway. Save over $10,000

1000

Volvo is running a 2015 runout promotion and have some huge discounts - from $9,000 to $14,000 across V40 Hatch, S60 Sedan and XC60 SUV.

The stand out for me is the V40 Hatch but other deals might be more relevant to the kind of car you're looking at.

Having dealt with a Volvo dealership in past, I would say there is some more room to haggle and bring the price further down (on the base models listed here) or get some free extras / premium options in the offer price.

      Except the limit is $100 for any one purchase….. I suppose you could ask them and have them charge you every $100 so you can do it; might take a while though…..

        I did that for a $5k sofa, because my pin # wasn't working and could use Paywave — I think you have to keep it at $99 or less.

    Ah damn, couldn't resist. Now my balance is at -$36,888.

    But seriously, this sucks for anyone that already owns one. Their resale value is going to plummet…

    •  

      Usually when there is a steep discount, it usually signals they might be revamping the car completely, just like the XC90, maybe V40 might be next in line?
      There was a similar discount on the C Mercs late last year when the new shape was coming out.

      •  

        This V40 only came out Feb 2013, so only a bit over two years. I think the discount is due to poor sales.

      you should go out and understand, sales for volvo at record high because of their wins in motor sport. people now take a different view of them

      • +11 votes

        The motor sport cars are heavily modified versions that you can't buy. They have completely different chassis / engines / tuning etc.

        •  

          That fact does nothing to diminish the coolness / appeal for most buyers — motor racing is just a several-day-long advertisement, which the winning team getting the greatest marketing coverage. As for Volvo, performance vehicles don't get much better than the S60 Polestar, if you can get your hands on one.

        Exactly. How can you even compare a GM Daewoo Cruze to a Volvo V40?

    • +16 votes

      the Focus is a good car, Golf a great car but the cruze is a shitbox. Built horribly and terrible resale

      •  

        The latest model years have good reviews. The mediocre resale means you can get low km 2014 and 2015 high end Cruzes for less than 25 k. Down to about 21 k for 2014 Cruze SriV at times. It's a bit of a myth that they're unreliable old Daewoos.

        •  

          if you must have a holden, pick up an opel astra with the 1.6t for next to nothing and put holden badges on it. Infinitely better car

        •  

          They're built in Korea, in the old Daewoo factory. Along with the Captiva, Barina et al. The quality of the Captiva is shocking, the Cruize not much better

        •  

          @antt:
          Opel (and now the rebadged) Holden are built in Germany.

          I think a 2nd Opel badged Astra OPC should be at a reasonable price. Very quick and goes around corners according to reviews… Comes with mechanical LSD as well.

        •  

          @googleyahoo69: I was talking about the Cruze. I'm aware that Opel cars are built in Europe. Although, not necessarily in Germany. The Astras destined for Australia may actually be built in the Vauxhall factory in Ellesmere Port according to an article I read last year. further, Opel build the Astra in Poland and Russia too.

      Same reason someone blows $300k or more on a Bentley! They want something special or at least perceived as special so they feel special owning & driving it. Just human nature, nothing wrong with that. Funnily enough, I had a great time sitting in the luxurious Leather seats admiring the incredible woodwork on the dash of a friends Bentley… as it sat completely lifeless in his driveway. It was a 2008 4WD Continental Coupe thing and set him back well over $300k but it completely died and it took Bentley so long to troubleshoot it remotely (weeks & weeks!) he ended up towing it to a backyard Euro car mechanic who managed to get it running in a matter of about 45 minutes ;) Something to do with its dual battery system. Pfft, sorry but for over $300k if it really had to die I'd want a Bentley mechanic choppered out within hours to fix it within the day.

        Same reason I don't drive a 'ritzy' car. I look at my S13 Nissan and can work out most of it in 15 minutes if I really think hard about it. Not to mention the parts cost me the price of a happy meal.

      If you're really worried about total cost of ownership you sure as shit wouldn't be buying a car brand new. Not unless you were going to keep it for a lot longer than 5 years.

      Choosing a car is an emotional decision, otherwise we'd all be driving around in 10-year-old Corollas.

      With that Logic, why not just buy a Chery SUV (http://www.cherymotors.com.au/default.asp?action=article&ID=...).
      You can't argue 'cheaper' in any way.

      You just listed Mr and Mrs Uninformed Average, top considerations.
      You forgot the Great Mazda 3, the near Mazda price BMW 1 series and the highly rated Hyundais ix35 etc. Not to mention the Corolla.

      Broaden your horizons an get your info updated.

      If I was in the market I would consuder this V40 deal and the XC60,very highly rated on their merits, not just brand.

      I don't understand why anyone would buy one of these over e.g., a Ford Focus, Holden Cruze, or VW Golf.

      I don't understand why anyone would buy coffee, tea, soft drink or beer. Water from the tap is much cheaper and it's just as wet.

    We recently bought a V40 (a level above the T4 Kinetic advertised here; the T4 Luxury) - couldn't be happier with the purchase. It's our second Volvo; and the reliability has been excellent on the first one which we've owned for over 5 years now.

    If you care to spend much time at all researching, you'll find Volvo is a company with a very respectable social conscience. They've spent a lot of their own money arguing for safer standards in Australian child car seat technology (ISOFIX). A great deal of the safety technology, and even environmental technology (i.e. catalytic converters) that are present in most of your cars today has been designed by a Volvo engineer.

    I'm not an employee, nor affiliated with Volvo in any way. It's just been the case that the more time I spent researching the company, the more impressed I've grown with how it operates. It's a company I'm actually happy to support, and if that means paying a little more for a Volvo, instead of a Ford or Holden, to transport my family around safely, then I'm happy to do so.

    • +3 votes

      100% agreed.

      This is a car from a manufacturer who invents new safety features, not just eventually throws them in when they have to due to market pressure. I took a very hard look at the V40 R-Design. Boot needed to be a bit bigger so the Golf GTI won out in the end due to better potential resale (buying at the start of the new model cycle vs the middle of the cycle in the V40 - both cars crash tested at the top of the class).

      Volvo did invent the 3 point seatbelt and gave away the patent for free because it's such a important thing for safety. I love V40.

  •  

    If only I can afford this…

    Bought one. Thanks OP.

  •  

    I know nothing about cars. With this said, how does Volvo compare to Mazda (a car i'm considering for my first car).

    • +4 votes

      As a general rule of thumb - you cant compare.

      buying a car highly dependent on the image you have with the brand.

      • +2 votes

        Disagree,
        That view is for the impressionable, uninformed ignorant person.

        ryangoal; Do some research based on your needs and budget. Volvo just like most other brands, have a car to suit any life style.

        As per comments made by other members above, I would 'reward' a company such as Volvo for their efforts in many areas such as safety.

        I bought a Citroen C4 grand Picasso recently, due to the 'outstanding' visibility. Due to it's design. It has nearly no blindspot from it's A pillars, the rest had to do with it being a 7 seater (flexibility), and flat folding rear seats, which has allowed me to carry so many items otherwise impossible in sedan and most SUVs.

        IMO buying a car is a very big decision, financially and life (safety), paying an extra K or 2K, can save your life and also give you driving pleasure.

          @ryangoal: Cheers Ryangoal. with what Mumbles (who looks more like skipper) bellow says re: Mazda may be better, from what I read recently on the Herald Sun, Mazdas are quite dear to service. Dearer than Volvo ? I am not sure. Some of the Volvo dealers I know do free servicing or do a price cap/agreement depending on the model you buy.

    • +1 vote

      As a "first car" the Mazda is the better choice. Don't get me wrong I've owned a Volvo before and really love the modern Volvo's.

      The running costs for a young driver are very high. The Volvo V40 is a turbo engined car. Insurance premiums will be much higher.

      Servicing costs might be a little more expensive than the Mazda. Depreciation is worse for the Volvo.

      I've no idea of your age or income but factor in the chance of accidents, repair costs, servicing and how long you will own the car.

      Atleast they have enough time on their hands to troll and to compare everything with batteries, cashbacks and pricematches (true ozbargain'ers!). I'm entertained (and I believe many other will be too) but my aim for posting this deal was to benefit the (albeit a small fraction of) OZB community.

      If you look at the numbers, you are getting more than 20% off - and based on your negotiation skills, you can haggle it further down.

        Please post again next year or the year after of similar deal. I sold my xc60 last year and I regret it big time. I've got another car now but I'm still missing my good old Volvo.
