Our novated lease customers have again proven themselves to be a practical lot, opting for a range of tried-and-tested vehicles that tick all the boxes for versatility, build quality, technology and even style.
Best in class Mazda CX-5
Once again, the Mazda CX-5 was one of the top choices for our customers in 2018 and little wonder. This stylish SUV has been a class leading vehicle for Mazda since its release in 2012 with many motoring writers praising it as the vehicle by which others are judged. This seriously good-looking vehicle is the exception to the rule that you can’t judge a book by its cover. It really is as good as it looks with its combination of interior space, advanced technology, good driving dynamics, safety and a choice of well-regarded engines, including a punchy and economical diesel. We expect it will prove just as popular in the coming year as it did throughout 2018.
Stylish Mazda 3
Another sales winner for Mazda has been the Mazda 3. It really stands out in the increasingly crowded small vehicle market. For many of our novated lease customers the Mazda 3, whether in hatchback or sedan form is the perfect choice of city car. Mazda has long had a way with styling and its small car is no exception, with the sedan looking svelte. It offers an excellent blend of ride comfort and handling with more than acceptable performance.
With a new model due later this year, you’re sure to be offered some outstanding deals on the current model in the coming months. So, if you’ve always fancied a Mazda 3 there’s never been a better time to get behind the wheel of one.
The Toyota Landcruiser has been around for as long as any of us can remember and it’s been the benchmark for go-anywhere reliability for just as long. Little wonder then that it was the vehicle of choice for many of our adventurous novated lease customers lured by the promise of getting away from it all in the great outdoors in a big SUV. In fact, the Toyota Landcruiser Prado is Australia’s biggest selling SUV.
While it may not have quite the pizzazz of a Land Rover Discovery it more than makes up for it in sheer off-road ability and serious towing ability. It’s available in a vast range of models, engines and specifications from the entry level GX right up to the top-of-the-range Land Cruiser Sahara. What they all have in common, however, is bullet-proof quality and reliability.
They’re attributes shared by Toyota’s other big-seller, the HiLux. Australians can’t get enough of them and our novated lease customers are no exception. The dual cab really is the Swiss army knife of vehicles. It’s a tradie’s tool hauler on weekdays that can do the weekly shopping, take the kids and their gear to sports on weekends then head off-road to the bush for a family get-away. Little wonder it’s Australia’s top selling vehicle offering outstanding reliability and resale value.
Car of the Year Hyundai i30
And when you’re looking for quality and reliability in a more traditional vehicle then you really can’t go past the Hyundai i30. The i30SR won the Drive Car of the Year Award in 2018 and it wasn’t the first time it picked up such an accolade. Indeed, it was the car that forever transformed Hyundai’s image from a maker of cheap and cheerful vehicles to a mainstream carmaker offering high quality, well-built vehicles that drove well while still offering excellent value for money.
These days the i30 has even gained genuine sporting credentials with some motoring writers praising the i30N, with its 202kw turbocharged four-cylinder engine and Aussie-tuned suspension, as the new benchmark for hot hatches.
Whatever new vehicle you have in mind, whether it’s a sporty i30N, the all-round practicality of a Toyota Hilux, the seriously good-looking Mazda 3, or anything else, a money saving novated lease is the perfect way to get behind the wheel.
