Most car loans in Vijayawada are floating-rate loans where the interest rates are often pegged to the bank’s MCLR (Marginal Cost of funds-based Lending Rate) or the bank’s benchmark rate. Customers have a choice between applying for a new car loan (purchase of a new car) and a used car loan (purchase of a used car).
New car loans usually offer a longer repayment tenure, often up to 84 months or 7 years. Used car loans on the other hand, usually offer a maximum repayment tenure of 60 months or 5 years. All car loans require the hypothecation of the vehicle to the bank.

Apart from comparing the car loans offered by different banks, there are other ways to the fetch the lowest interest rates in Vijayawada:
Several banks including SBI, Canara Bank, and Bank of India offer the best rates to applicants who maintain high credit scores. A credit score of 750 and above is considered a high score. Highest interest rates are offered to applicants with lowest credit scores, followed by those with no credit history.
Used car loans always have a higher interest rate compared to new car loans (as you can see from the table). Some banks such as Canara Bank and BOI offer the same rates on both loans. The margin or down payment that you have to pay is also much higher for used car loans when compared to new car loans. For a used car, the margin can go up to 40% compared to 10%-25% for new cars.
So, if you’re looking to save more by applying for a used car loan, there are several factors that you need to consider, especially the high interest rates, the down payment, and the age of the car.
Salaried employees often get get lower interest rates on not just car loans, but also other loans when compared to self-employed individuals. This is because salaried employees have a fixed income that they earn every month, thereby, posing a lower risk than self-employed applicants who earn variable income. Bank of India (BOI) is one such bank that offers lower rates to salaried customers.
Some banks offer lower interest rates to female applicants compared to their male counterparts. The difference in interest rate in most cases is 0.05% p.a. Though the percentage appears negligible, the savings from interest can be significant.
For example, the interest payments alone on a Rs.5 lakh car loan for 5 years at an interest rate of 9% p.a. is around Rs.1,22,751. Keeping all other parameters constant, the interest payment at a rate of 9.50% p.a. is Rs.1,30,056. The difference in savings is Rs.7,305.
If the interest on your car loan is your only consideration, then choosing a longer repayment tenure will offer you the lowest rates. There’s also the added bonus of smaller EMIs (equated monthly instalments). The drawback here is that longer tenures also charge higher interest. If you’re looking for interest savings rather than a low interest rate, then choose a shorter tenure. But do so only if you can afford to pay a larger EMI.
For example, the EMI for a Rs.5 lakh car loan at an interest of 9.50% p.a. for 5 years is Rs.10,501. The total interest payable is Rs.1,30,056. So essentially, you’re repaying Rs.6,35,056. Now if you have the financial capacity to repay more and choose a tenure of 3 years, then your EMI will be Rs.16,061. The total interest payable will be Rs.76,593 and the overall repayment towards the loan will be Rs.5,81,593. The interest savings alone on this loan are Rs.53,463, all for choosing a shorter loan tenure. Note: A 1% processing fee is added to the calculations.
