The loan is on variable terms over five years, which means the rate could change at any time.

This loan is a two percentage point decrease on its previously-lowest-rate car loan.

Other car loans slashed include:

  • New and Demo Cars up to 7 Years term: 3.99% p.a. rate (4.60% p.a. comparison rate*)
  • 'New Car Loan' for cars up to 3 years old: 4.99% p.a. rate (5.59% p.a. comparison rate*)

A Queensland Country Bank spokesperson told Savings.com.au the slashed rates were timely due to end of financial year sales and the increased small business instant asset write off amount.

"With many car dealerships currently offering significant end of financial year discounts on new and demonstrator vehicles, we decided to make our offering even more competitive by introducing the 2.99% p.a. interest rate," they said.

"We were also conscious that the increased instant asset write-off for businesses, which was temporarily increased from $30,000 to $150,000 during the COVID pandemic, reduces to the previous level on 30 June this year.

"By reducing our interest rates in the lead-up to the benefits of the scheme being reduced, we hoped to help local businesses wishing to take advantage of the instant asset write-off secure their new vehicles at a very competitive interest rate."

Various fees include a $120 establishment fee, a document fee, and a $5 per month 'loan maintenance' fee. 

While variable loans can change at any time, particularly subject to Reserve Bank cash rate changes, Queensland Country Bank's headline rate compares favourably with some of the lowest rate fixed-interest car loans currently available, as seen in the table below.
