About CommBank car loans

As one of Australia’s leading banks, the Commonwealth Bank of Australia (CBA) offers a full suite of financial products and services to its personal and business customers and clients, including access to personal loans and car loans.

Whether your goal is to pay less in interest, to keep your budget simple, or to enjoy greater financial flexibility when you roll away on the four wheels of a new or used car, CBA has several options available. 

With Commonwealth Bank branches located across Australia, plus phone and internet banking services, it’s simple to apply for a Commonwealth bank loan to buy your car, boat or motorcycle. Existing CBA customers may also be eligible for special offers when they apply for a car loan.

Features of a CommBank car loan

Car loans from CBA are secured by the value of the vehicle you’re purchasing, allowing you to benefit from a relatively low fixed interest rate, which in turn helps to keep your repayments consistent and manageable for the full lifetime of the loan. With a minimum loan amount of $10k and no fixed upper limit, these loans are ideal for purchasing brand new cars.

CBA’s other personal loan options can be used to borrow from $5k to $50k, making them better suited to purchasing used cars, as well as motorcycles or boats. As unsecured loans, these personal loans tend to provide added flexibility, such as the redraw facility that’s included with the variable rate option.

What RateCity says:

If you opt for CBA’s car loan, your debt will be secured by the value of the car you’re purchasing, allowing you to enjoy a lower than average interest rate. With its fixed interest rate, your repayments will remain consistently low for the full term of your car loan. Though it’s worth keeping the higher than average establishment fee in mind, as well as the ongoing monthly fee, which chould affect the car loan’s affordability.

CBA’s fixed and variable personal loans can be used for certain car purchases, and while they have higher interest rates than CBA’s secured car loan option as well as the market average, they also have lower establishment fees. And if you opt for the variable rate loan, the redraw facility will allow you to withdraw from the loan any additional payments you make, and enjoy some extra flexibility.

Applying/eligibility

To apply for a CommBank car loan and/or personal loan, you’ll need:

  • proof of income
  • bank statements
  • personal ID
  • 12 months of insurance
  • your car’s tax invoice

If you’re an existing CommBank customer, you can upload these documents online for faster approval, but if you’re not a customer, or you’d prefer to have a professional talk you through the process, you can visit a CommBank branch.

FAQs

Student car loans are not a necessarily a product in and of themselves, but what you may be looking for is a guarantor car loan.

A guarantor car loan has a third-party act as a form of guarantee for your loan application, telling the bank or lender that if you default on your loan, someone will pay the loan repayments.

Going guarantor on a car loan is no new thing, and before internet-based credit scores, guarantor car loan applicants would apply for loans with a guarantor or property owner who could vouch for the person borrowing the loan.

To get a guarantor car loan, you’ll need someone willing to act as a guarantor for your car loan.
