Loan for buying a car

Discover the benefits of a car loan


Discover if a car loan could help you take home your first car, trade up to a better model or invest in the classic vehicle of your dreams.

With a Personal Loan, you can buy your car upfront from your choice of dealer or private seller, which means you’re free to modify or sell your vehicle if you wish. You can also choose how long you borrow the money for, so payments fit your budget.
