Fixed or Variable Rate. What’s Right for You?

When you apply for an RBC car loan, you can choose between a fixed or variable rate loan. Here's a quick overview of the features and benefits of each:

With a Fixed Rate Car Loan

  • Your interest rate is locked in for the entire term of your loan
  • You will know exactly how much interest you'll pay over the loan term
  • Your payment amount and term will not be affected by changes in interest rates

With a Variable Rate Car Loan

  • You could save money if rates decrease but your rate is subject to changes in interest rates
  • If rates rise, your payments may stay the same, but it could take longer to repay your loan
  • If rates fall, your payments will stay the same, but you may be able to repay your loan sooner
