Citroen Australia will pay for all on-road costs on a selection of its models, yielding buyers savings of up to $4500.
The French automaker has so far sold around 500 cars across Australia this year, substantially less than the 700-odd cars is sold over the same period in 2012.
But Citroen's new drive-away deals might just entice a few more buyers through showroom doors.
Not only do they apply to a number of passenger car models, but Citroen will also be waiving drive-away costs on two models in the Berlingo commercial van range.
There are some strange aspects to Citroen's drive-away offerings though. Only one variant in the C4 hatch range - the 1.6 litre petrol C4 Seduction automatic - is available with drive-away pricing, and the gap between it and the top-spec C4 Exclusive petrol is now over $10k when on-road costs are taken into account.
It's also interesting to note that at $19,990 on-the-road, the Citroen Berlingo SWB petrol manual is now the cheapest light commercial van in the Australian market; undercutting the Suzuki APV which retails for $18,990 before on road costs.
