Secured loans are tied to an asset that you own, providing a safeguard for you and your lender if you're unable to make your repayments. In the case of a secured car loan the security is generally the car. As it is secured there is less risk involved in lending you funds and therefore the interest rate on a secured loan will generally be lower than an unsecured car loan, where no security is required.
Both loans can be used to purchase a car and both types of car loans can be compared on RateCity.com.au
