Car Reviews Best offers on cars with zero-per-cent financing and cash rebates

The Bank of Canada announced on May 29th its decision to hold the benchmark interest rate steady at 1.75 per cent for the time being. Thus far, the central bank has offered no indication on whether it will resume hiking the rate in coming months.

This is welcome news for the numerous Canadians who will choose to finance their car purchase between now and July 10th, when the Bank of Canada expects to make its next rate announcement. According to J.D. Power and Associates, over 75 per cent of new vehicle purchases excluding leases were either entirely or partly financed.

Automakers often offer zero-per-cent interest rates as an incentive to draw in prospective customers. To sweeten the deal, some automakers may also offer additional cash rebates in addition to their already low interest rates.
