I am holding a car loan with HDFC Bank. They were quick in processing the loan. Within a span of 2 or 3 days the loan was offered to me. The best part about this loan is what ever I wanted I got. Payment options are good. I am happy with the documentation part as

TVS Credit car loan is good, the rate of interest offered by them was very high. ICICI Bank was offering me about 10% however TVS Credit is offering about 11.5%. Good if they can lower the interest rate. If they offer competitive rates, they can gain more customers. Processing fee charged by TVS credit is in line with market price so there is no issues with that.

TVS Credit car loan is ok, firstly I am not in need of that loan that is why I have not taken that. I am quite happy with the interest rate offered by them. Processing fee charged by them is quite reasonable. Initially, I had some plan of taking the loan. I would definitely get in touch with them in the near future if I need that.
12:38 PM - Mar 04, 2015
I have just made an enquiry with TVS Credit for the car loan. However, to the best of my knowledge I got a delayed response from them. I was in need of the loan on a urgent basis. As HDFC Bank was ready to offer me the loan I switched over. I dont re-call the interest rate and the processing fee charged by them.
06:38 PM - Mar 04, 2015
TVS Credit car loan is ok. I have purchased a new car I thought of taking a car loan against it. However when I approached TVS Credit for the same, I have been told that they are not dealing with the new car loan and they can offer loan only for the used car. Also I have taken a personal loan with HDFC Bank.

First I was in need of car loan thus approached Axis bank but later I changed the plan as I arranged funds from outside. Fine with Axis bank and everything was good. Interest rate is kind of high as they were ready to give 18%. Good service and got follow ups timely. Suggesting Axis bank to speed up the car loan process.

HDFC is the only bank that offered 95% of the loan amount from showroom price. Really HDFC is customer oriented where they really concerned about their customers and they value the customers. Car loan process was hassle free with HDFC and I liked much. Rate is competitive and it is similar to other banks. They gave good service and done good work.
05:56 PM - Mar 04, 2015
My car model was 2004 and hence my application with TVS Credit car loan was not approved. It is basically rejected. They were able to provide the loan for above 2007 model. Moreover, the rate of interest offered by them was very high which is basically 18%. Processing fee charged by them was 2%. I am not interested in purchasing a new car.
03:59 PM - Mar 04, 2015
My experience with HDFC for my Car loan which I have taken is not that good. The loan is taken in my brothers name and I make payments. The amount was disbursed on time and the response provided by them was good. The rate of interest charged is high when compared to other banks and the worst part is I had to open an account with HDFC to take a loan and it was a mandatory task. They make things in a complicated way and incase if I want to transfer the loan to my name its again a lengthy procedure. Overall their service provided was not up to the mark.
11:35 AM - Mar 04, 2015
Axis bank is not at all covering majority of amount that actually customer expects. I asked the executive to sanction amount of 90-95% from showroom price but the executive said that maximum they can provide only 80% of showroom price. I got expected amount from different bank so I switched over from Axis bank. Apart from this fee structure of car loan were good in Axis. Suggesting Axis bank to give maximum loan amount to customer.
05:55 PM - Mar 04, 2015
I am unhappy with the service offered by TVS Credit for the car loan. I have tried to contact them once however I am not all happy with the way they approached me as they dont seemed to give importance to their customer. The rate of interest offered by them is very high. Off course, there are very few Banks or financial institution which offers loan for used car and the interest rate offered by them is really high. The interest rate offered by them was 15% to 16%.
03:13 PM - Mar 04, 2015
No issues with Axis bank as my plan of car loan was changed and I postponed the plan. I got all kinds of response from the Axis bank and customer service is very good. Executives behaved well and they were prompt in calling. I did not receive quotation of car loan from Axis bank because before that I changed my plan.

The X7 has been in the news for quite some time now. It did not hit the roads in 2014 despite BMW’s best efforts but it is expected that the SUV will be available globally, inside a couple of more years. The model X7 has been spotted testing on international roads many a times and this is fueling these widely spread speculations. X7 will be the largest Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) to be produced by BMW. With higher centre of gravity and a longer wheelbase platform, this model is all set to outperform the other SUVs. Even though the official information is yet to be released, X7 is expected to go on world-wide sale by 2017. There’s good news too- with a lot of banks offering car loans up to 90% of the ex-showroom price, owning a BMW need not be just a dream now. Also, you have time until 2017 to plan the finances accordingly. And if you cannot wait- check out varied car loan.

As a good news to consumers, State Bank of Hyderabad has reduced its interest rates for gold and car loans offering special loan packages with renewed interest rates.

Further, the bank is also waiving of the processing fees normally charged on these loans, as an added benefit to customers.

2015 has started on a high note for the Indian automobile sector, with car sales in January having dwarfed the numbers set a year ago. The primary reason for this rests in the lowering of fuel prices that translates into lower vehicle ownership costs. Further, RBI’s recent action to slash the key policy rate, and prospective hopes that more cuts are in order, has impacted the interest rates applicable to car loans in sufficient degrees to renew the demand for cars. Individually, Maruti Suzuki has reported a 9% hike in domestic sales to account for 105,559 units, Hyundai with a 4% increment at 34,780 units, Honda accounted for a 17% boost at 15,714 units and Toyota Kirloskar notched up a 16% upswing to sell 12,650 units in January 2015. Tata Motors, accounting for sharp loses in the last two years, also enjoyed the January revival- selling 13,047 units and notching a 19% hike in sales figures. All these major automobile manufacturers are hopeful that as the year progresses, the numbers will only get better.

The planned policy review was slated for February 3, however the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) jumped the gun and imposed a deduction of 25 basis points on repo rates (also called lending rates) as of January 15, effectively dropping down the rate to 7.75%. This translates into a definite probability that car loans as advertised by various Indian banks will also witness a corresponding reduction in interest rates. But, this is just half the story. Most industry experts, including influential names like Morgan Stanley expect this rate to fall further, a full 125 basis points over the next 12 months (taking the overall haul to 150 points). These experts are pointing to subtle hints that indicate that the RBI is at the start of a serious rate cut cycle. This will reduce the cost of capital for banks that in-turn will cause the fall in lending rates across various portfolio products, including car loans. The timing of these cuts however, will depend of the bank’s individual perception of the situation.
10th February 2015
While the country may be rejoicing over the current repo rate cut by the RBI, car industry players think that the rate cut not only is too late but is too small as well. They were anticipating a rate slash of at least 0.5% since the last repo rate cut had happened 20 months ago in the year 2013.
However, experts feel that it is not the actual cut that matters rather the direction which the rate took that is more significant. This is because a cut in rate signals a positive movement of the economy and a step towards reducing the inflation rate which has been riding considerably high for the past few years.
The banks and other credit providers are now expected to take cue from RBI’s move and start to reduce rates so that demands for credit improve. Also, if the economy continue to do well, RBI is expected to reduce the repo rate further thereby providing greater relief to the customers.

Have you been holding back the decision to buy a new car? Now is the right time to start planning again. With a bunch of new cars set to hit the Indian roads in the year 2015, you can choose from a new array of car models and own your dream car. Here are a few cars that are coming your way in 2015.
Tata Bolt: This hatchback from Tata Motors will be out in late January. With this car, Tata is hoping to grab a comfortable place for itself in the hatchback segment. The car is loaded with new features like satellite navigation and projector headlamps. The introductory base price of this car is Rs.4.2 lakhs.
Mercedes Benz CLA Class: The latest from Mercedes is a compact luxury sedan which will be out in January. The car will be launched in both Petrol and Diesel variants. This CLA class will be priced lower than the GLA class of Mercedes.
Datsun Go+: Datsun Go was launched last year in the Indian market. The company is geared up to launch the enhanced Go+ model this year. The new model is said to produce more linear power delivery however, the car isn’t loaded with too many features. The prices start at Rs.3.6 lakhs since even the highest range model doesn’t come with features like airbags, ABS and alloy wheels.

For all you fans of sporty cars, Mercedes has sent into production the all new CLA Shooting Brake model which essentially is a sporty sedan. The first batch of the car is being manufactured at Kecskemét, Hungary and is set to hit the roads in March 2015.
The model is available in a variety of engine variations like 2.1 liter-four-cylinder diesel, a 1.6-liter four-cylinder and a 2.0-liter petrol. Among all these models there is one range topping CLA Shooting Brake car too which has 2 liter-four-cylinder engine that develops a high torque and is connected to a seven-speed AMG SPEEDSHIFT dual-clutch transmission which enables instant accelerations as high as a speed change of 0 to 100 km/he in just about 4.7 seconds.
This CLA Shooting model is open for booking now and the first batch will most likely be rolled out of the manufacturing unit in the month of March.

With India all set to become the world’s third largest car market by next year, Kia Motor’s CEO has hinted at setting up a car factory in the country to offset diminishing sales in China and Russia.
Currently, Kia Motors, which is a subsidiary of Hyundai Motors does not have any manufacturing unit in India and attracts high import taxes which has resulted in negligible sales of Kia cars in the country. While growth in Russia and China are slowing down, India is the market that the company is looking forward to for boosting sales volumes and profit margins. As to the time and location of opening up of the factory, there is no clear information as of now.

Existing Home and Car Loan borrowers can breathe a sigh of relief as loan rates are set to go down with the latest slash in the repo rate by RBI. The repo rate has been cut down by 25 basis points which means a decrease of 0.25% in the existing interest rates on car and home loans. All banks are yet to reveal the dropped rates however, banks like Union Bank of India have already announced the cut.
A lower rate of interest will mean a lower EMI for prospective borrowers and will mean a reduced loan tenure for existing customers who are paying off their loans via monthly installments. For example, if the interest rate comes down from 10.25% to 10.00% for a 20 year home loan of 25 lakhs, then the EMI will come down by about Rs.418 per month.
The Reserve Bank of India has said that inflation is expected to remain low at just under 6% till January 2016. For an existing home loan borrower, either the EMI or the tenure can come down. However, for car loan borrowers, since most car loans are sanctioned at a fixed rate of interest, only new car loan customers are set to profit more in terms of reduced rates.

Ford India’s launch of its new Figo model may happen ahead of the expected launch date going by recent developments. Speculations began when sales of Ford India’s top-selling brand dipped significantly at the end of 2014, hitting only about 10% of its usual monthly figures at 151 units. This led industry observers to believe the old model is being phased out to make way for the new version which was initially set for a March 2015 launch.
Although the auto major hasn’t yet made any formal announcements, rumours are doing the rounds based on the fact that the new model is already in its testing phase which includes test production. Manufacturing of the new Figo is said to take place at the Sanand unit in Gujarat, slated to begin operations in the upcoming months.

2014 marked a good year for Volvo cars which achieved record sales of 465,866 units. This represents an annual growth of 8.9%. Monthly sales have been increasing consistently for the Swedish auto major over the last year and a half and this trend is expected to continue into the coming year as well. While this growth can be attributed to the company’s key geographical drivers i.e. Western Europe and China, Volvo is pushing to expand its reach and make a mark in all markets, the world over. It aims to achieve its targets by revamping its product line with strong focus on technology and design.
These figures are very encouraging considering 2014 was a year which saw many luxury auto brands such as Rolls Royce Motor Cars of BMW AG, McLaren and Bentley, to name a few, work towards greater sales numbers.

German auto major, Volkswagen, has its wheels in motion with a number of new products in the making. Of these, the supposed launch of the latest model of the Volkswagen Phaeton has the global auto industry talking. This hitherto underappreciated luxury car is set to hit markets at the end of 2016 with an array of creditable features and is expected to outshine preferred luxury brands such as Mercedes, Audi and Lexus among other competitors.
The Volkswagen Phaeton already boasts great attributes. However, it has, so far, failed to elicit the desired customer response, generally being outdone by other high-end sedans in its segment. However, the new model, based on cutting-edge technology, is set to top even the Mercedes-Benz S-Class in terms of comfort. It will also leverage technology for safety and improved driving experiences with suspension systems that monitor and adjust to road conditions through the use of sensors and cameras.
Volkswagen also has plans for new models in other segments to be launched in various geographies across the world. If implemented as per plan, new models, mainly SUVs, could find their way to India in the coming years.
