Should You Pay a Bigger Down Payment Amount?
If you have accumulated the savings which can enable you to pay a bigger down payment for the said SUV models, you should say ‘Yes’ to it as the eventual car loan amount required would then be lesser and thus bring down your EMI repayment liability. This will ensure a seamless repayment of the loan while letting you enjoy a great ride full of exciting moments to cherish.
Shorter Tenure Vs Longer Tenure
What should be your take on the car loan tenure option? Which is good to your pocket- a longer tenure or a shorter one? The maximum tenure for a car loan can be upto 7 years. But you need to be tactical while choosing the tenure option. Well, if you want to bring down the monthly repayment in the form of EMI, you should go for a longer tenure. For those wanting to contain the massive outflow of interest over the years, they better opt for a shorter tenure. This will, however, raise the EMI amount.
If we talk about the Jeep Compass SUV Models, the lowest price comes out to be ₹17.48 lakhs. Assume the bank finances a loan amount worth ₹15 Lakhs at an interest rate of 8.75% per annum. You opt for a 7-year tenure, but your friend decides to choose a 6-year loan period. In that case, be ready to pay an EMI of ₹23,944. Your friend, on the other hand, would need to service the EMI that amounts to ₹26,853, more than what you are supposed to pay. But he would save on the interest outflow, which, in his case, would be ₹4,33,385. Whereas, the interest repayment liability would be around ₹5,11,274 for you to deal with over the 7 year-tenure.
What’s About Processing Fee & Other Charges?
Upon submitting the car loan application, the banks and other financial institutions charge a one-time processing fee which can be a flat amount or 1%-2% of the loan disbursal amount. If you wish to prepay the loan before the expiry of the tenure, there will be charges on the same. Be ready to pay 2%-5% of the outstanding principal amount as a prepayment fee. The floating rate loan, however, can come with a zero fee.
