Factors to consider before taking out the Bank Australia Car Loan

With the Bank Australia Car Loan, you can finance a new or used vehicle up to seven years old at a fixed interest rate of 6.45% p.a. The loan comes with a one-time establishment fee of $150 but no annual fees. You can make extra repayments whenever you like and car and loan protection insurances can also be arranged.

Features of the Bank Australia Car Loan

  • Discounted interest rate for green vehicles. The current fixed interest rate is 6.45% p.a. with a comparison rate of 6.66% p.a., but you will receive a 1% rate discount if you use a low emission vehicle.
  • No establishment fee for safe and green vehicles. If your vehicle has a 5-star ANCAP safety rating or a 7+ star greenhouse safety rating you will not pay the $150 establishment fee.
  • Your vehicle's greenhouse gas emissions will be offset. For the duration of the loan, the greenhouse gas emissions produced by your vehicle will be offset by Bank Australia.
  • Loan term. The loan term is flexible. Up to 7 years for a new car purchase and five years for a used car.
  • Loan amount. There are no stipulated loan limits as each loan application is individually assessed.
  • Repayment options. You can make extra repayments at no additional cost and save on interest payments when you repay your loan sooner than the contracted term.

Fees and charges to consider

An establishment fee of $150 applies, but this fee is waived for vehicles that meet a 5-star ANCAP rating and/or a 7+ greenhouse rating.
