Current Prices for Hyundai i30 Models

Hello fellow OzBargainers,

Just looking for an estimate on what I can expect to bargain for the new i30 sedan models, specifically the Active and Elite models which rrp for ~30k and ~35k respectively.

I understand that in the current climate, demand is higher than supply so the dealers cant be expected to negotiate too much. Wondering if anyone has an idea?

Thanks

EDIT: So after a few calls and some haggling, seems like its easy to get about 2-3k off each model with any paint. Anything more than that would definitely require more stock in the market it seems.

      DEMAND IS HIGHER THAN SUPPLY

        Surely you mean supply is less than demand.

    ~30k and ~35k.

      I think this ball park figure is accurate.

    I'd be holding off for a good few months if you can. They'll likely do better deals closer to the end of the financial year, and once supply/demand evens out.

    When I bought my i30 new at the end of 2018, I had no trouble achieving a 15% discount off the drive away price with very little haggling. If you are purchasing at the end of the month and you are trading an older car, you'll have more room to negotiate.

      curious, do you have any further tips? you seem to have more success than I do lol

      also - are you able to share your final price + any extras? cheers!

    Exorbitant price for what they are

    •  

      very much so

      2021 Hyundai i30 Active Auto MY21
      $26,800*
      Excl. Govt. Charges
      14 km
      Hatch
      Automatic
      4cyl 2.0L Petrol

      this is a base model, granted its well appointed but how did a c segment hatch wind up being $26k and people are ok with it lol

      australians are giant suckers

    i'll probably buy one this weekend… but hoping for a plate clearance model

    Currently, car prices are rising rapidly due to shortages. No more bargaining.
    Better wait if you can

    Just don't park it in the garage for a few years given its brother SUV, the Tuscon, has caught on fire randomly …. (and subject to a recall).

  •  

    Still the potential to get a decent deal - just need to be willing to call around and put a deposit on over the phone - towards the end of the month is also a better time. Managed to grab the i30 elite (MY21, build oct 2020) in fluid metal for 29800 driveaway last month

      Was that the sedan or hatchback, because I'm after the sedan.
      Thanks

        The hatchback

    UPDATE: I pulled the trigger and bought a new i30 Elite Sedan in Blue for $30250 (RRP $35k) from Sinclair Hyundai.

    Wait time is estimated to be about two months, but they said that is worst case scenario.

    They are happy to do the same car at the same price (maybe you can get 30k if you're extra charming), ask for Tim.

    Enjoy!

      Congratulations! Lovely car and paint. Enjoy it and thanks for letting us know.

    •  

      Hey man, congrats on your new purchase. Did you get your vehicle yet? I'm thinking about getting the same model but my local Hyundai is saying the waiting time is gonna be around 9 months.

      •  

        Disappointing update: The delay on the sedans is so long that I have cancelled my order…. :(

        •  

          aw I'm sorry man, did they say how long the delay is going to be?

  •  

    Not sure how the sedans go but i have driven the new manual i30 hatch for this year spiritedly through some corners and besides the lack of power , the chassis is extremely refined and it handles really well. not much body roll , point and shoot and its there and is quite capable even on stock commuter tyres.
