If you're currently looking for a new car, you'll be all too aware of the limited car availability as a result of the global semi-conductor shortage. For a full explanation of the chip shortage, read our article on the topic here.

Many new car buyers have been faced with extended car delivery times on their favourite models.

Many Chinese-based car manufacturers have not experienced the same delays with car production due to semi-conductor factories prioritizing Chinese manufacturing over exports. Therefore, you will see showroom floors full when walking into a MG, Haval, GWM or LDV dealership.

If you can and would prefer to wait for your desired new car, then by all means do so! However, if you need a new car as soon as possible, here are some alternative options for some of Australia's most popular models:

Instead of the Toyota Landcruiser, try the LDV V90.

Toyota has recently been facing major production delays, it was recently announced that 150,000 vehicles will be cut from production in February.

The LDV D90 is a great alternative for the Toyota Landcruiser. The Chinese brand LDV is quickly establishing itself with Australian customers. The LDV90 is available in both rear wheel drive and four-wheel drive and comes with all the latest safety tech including autonomous emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning and more!

Instead of the Volkswagen Golf, try the MG3 Auto.

The MG3 Auto is a great alternative to the Volkswagen Golf. The stylish and budget friendly MG has quickly become one of the most successful models on the light hatchback segment. Not only does its low price make it an attractive option, but also the 7-year/unlimited km factory warranty that comes with it!

The base model MG3 Core comes standard with a great technology offering including 8.0-inch infotainment touchscreen with Apple CarPlay, reversing camera, LED daytime running lights and many more features. There are 6 colour options available, allowing you to customize the car to your desires.

Instead of the Nissan Navara, try the GWM Ute Cannon.

The GWM Ute Cannon is quickly gaining popularity among Australian buyers with it becoming the leader in Chinese-made Utes, and sales are catching up with the Volkswagen Amarok.

The Ute is also a budget-friendly alternative with prices starting from a low $33,990 plus on-road costs. It comes standard with a range of desired features including 18-inch alloy wheels, side-steps, 9.0-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto and many more!
