The low interest rates have enticed a lot of consumers as well as business owners to act now while the rate is still low. A vehicle is something they’ll use for a long time, but rates like the current ones are rare to come by.

According to The Australian, car sales are on track to set a new record high this year. Justine Milankovic, CEO of Finance Funding Australia, confirms the trends reported with her own experience with consumers through financing car loans.

Toyota Corolla was the top selling car in November with 4190 registrations. Together with the Camry, it helped traditional car formats record a strong month.

However, SUVs are the star performers, with sales up more than 26 per cent year-to-date.

“We’ve seen similar trends in our work consulting with consumers on car loans. Although people are shying away from large passenger cars, SUVs maintain their strong hold on consumers. It’s just what’s in vogue despite the fact that it uses up a lot of fuel,” said Justine Milankovic.

Commercial vehicle sales were up more than 14 per cent in November, signifying solid business investment.

“We’ve also consulted with a healthy number of businesses buying new trucks for their companies. The low interest rates have enticed a lot of consumers as well as business owners to act now while the rate is still low. A vehicle is something they’ll use for a long time, but rates like the current ones are rare to come by. People know that, so they are taking advantage of the great deals,” said Ms. Milankovic.

Australia is on track to surpass 1.1 million cars sold by the end of 2012. States rich in resources such as Queensland and Western Australia have seen the highest growth in car demand, with this year’s demand up 11 per cent in Queensland and 16 per cent in Western Australia.

Toyota will be the top selling car manufacturer in Australia this year, claiming 19.4 per cent of the Australian market.

“Toyotas are definitely popular with consumers. They are known to have well-made cars that are fuel-efficient, and that’s what consumers are gravitating to these days,” said Justine Milankovic.

Consumers and business owners who want to take advantage of the current low interest rates to finance new vehicle purchases can contact the loan consultants at Finance Funding Australia.
