Factors affecting Lakshmi Vilas Bank Car Loan Interest Rates

Credit Score - Credit bureaus record your credits & liabilities and maintain your credit score. A good credit score means a good creditor. Banks are much confident in lending to you as a good credit score translates in to good repayment history. A good credit score also allows you to bargain for better interest rate and higher loan amounts. A lower credit score results in higher interest rate and lower loan amount and in some cases, the loan could even get rejected. It is advised to be updated with your current credit score. If your credit score is low, you need to take a few steps and improve it first, before applying for the loan to increase your chances of getting good loan terms.

Income – As stated above, your income is a major criterion while processing your loan application. Lakshmi Vilas Bank has set a minimum income eligibility to avail of a car loan. If you feel your income may not be sufficient, you can also add a family member’s income to make up the eligibility criteria. Adding co-applicants to the application gives you a benefit of combined income. More income means better cash flow to pay the EMIs. The car need not be purchased on their name, but adding an earning member of the family increases the available income for repayment, increasing your eligibility for a higher loan amount and better interest rate.

Down Payment – It is favourable to make a higher down payment and go for a lower loan amount. Banks prefer higher down payment amounts as they would then have a lower loan amount to recover from you during the loan term.  It will be easier on you also, since the EMIs would then be lower for a lower loan amount reducing the monthly cash outflow for you.

Loan Tenure – Though the bank offers repayment tenures of up to 36 months, the customer has the option to choose a lesser repayment tenure. Lesser tenure may mean higher EMIs, however, the total interest repaid would be lesser with a lower tenure. Based on your income and repayment capability, you can go for a lower tenure and repay the loan at the earliest.

Age – You must be 21 years old to become eligible for an IndusInd Bank Used Car loan. You also need to make sure that you pay off all of your loan by the time you are 65 or before you retire. Therefore, the more years of working years you have left, the greater the chances of obtaining the loan would be.

Car model and age – Used car loans are given on the value of the pre-owned car. Cars are depreciating assets, meaning, as years pass by, their value only decreases. In case you default on your loan, the bank has the right to seize the vehicle against loan outstanding. So, if your car is going to have higher depreciation, the loan amount will also be adjusted accordingly. Hence, choose a car model that will retain its value for a longer period. A used car that is in mint condition and is below 4 years old, gives the bank a better opportunity to recover a good amount in case of defaulting on the loan. Since you are making your loan more favourable to the bank, you get to bargain to make the loan more favourable to yourself as well. In case the car's value depreciates fast or the used car isn’t in a very good condition, the banks may impose a higher interest rate and decrease the loan amount.
