If you’re looking for finance for a new or used Toyota, you’re certainly not alone. Toyota is comfortably Australia’s most popular car manufacturer. It sold more than 230,000 new vehicles in 2022 — almost two-and-a-half times more than the second most popular car brand Mazda.
There’s certainly no shortage of Toyota finance options either, with dozens of lenders competing to attract the large numbers of Australian Toyota buyers. Comparing your options is key, as getting the best Toyota finance interest rate will make a big difference to your overall costs.

The interest rate you get on your Toyota finance is probably the biggest factor determining the overall cost. But getting the best deal on Toyota finance overall means considering other factors as well.
The eligibility criteria for a Toyota car loan will vary from lender to lender, but generally you’ll need to be:
Here’s a quick overview of the steps involved when applying for Toyota finance:
If successful, you’ll be given either car loan pre-approval up to a certain amount (this means you can go find a Toyota to buy based on the pre-approved amount), or final approval if you have already decided on the model you want to buy.
With some lenders it’s possible to apply for and be approved for Toyota finance the same day.
Generally a secured car loan for your Toyota will cost you less than unsecured finance. The reason for this is the Toyota you buy will be used to secure the loan. This reduces risk for the lender. Secured car finance on a Toyota generally has a term of between 1 and 7 years.
It's possible to get a secured car loan for either a new or used Toyota up to 12 years old.
With a novated lease, you’ll be able to pay for your Toyota as well as running costs (fuel, insurance etc.) using your pre-tax salary. You’ll also get a GST discount on the cost of the vehicle and car running costs. Learn more in our guide to novated lease pros and cons.
If you’re going to be using your Toyota for business purposes most of the time (i.e. more than 50% of the time), you could be eligible for a type of business vehicle finance known as a chattel mortgage. This works in much the same way as a secured car loan, but with additional tax benefits for businesses.
You could also explore lease options if you'd prefer the flexibility of not taking immediate ownership of your Toyota.
Toyota offers finance directly to customers who buy one of its vehicles, either new or used. It offers a fixed rate car loan as well as its ‘Toyota Access’ product which comes with a balloon payment and is designed for people who intend to trade in and replace their Toyota regularly. Toyota also offers novated leasing to customers.
Something to watch out for with dealer finance is that the convenience factor sometimes comes at the expense of getting the best deal available.
Shopping for the best finance for your Toyota separately will give you access to a wider range of options, and it generally won’t take any longer to be approved.
You should also be able to find Toyota finance options that come with a balloon payment. This means you will have lower repayments during the loan term, with a large final repayment at the end of the term. Alternatively you can refinance the balloon payment into a new loan, or if you don’t want to pay the balloon, you can return the car to the lender.
Shopping around for the right loan can save you thousands of dollars in interest and fees.
The interest rate you get on your Toyota finance will depend on your circumstances (your credit score is a big factor) and the type of finance you choose. To get the lowest rate possible:
Generally it’s possible to have Toyota finance approved on the same business day. But the exact timings will depend on the lender and how quickly you can provide any requested documents to support your application (bank statements, pays slips etc.).
This will depend on the lender you choose. If you get a loan for a Toyota through a major bank, you will generally need to have a ‘good’ credit score (usually above 660). But smaller lenders are generally more flexible and may accept borrowers with an ‘average’ credit score (above 460).
There are also lenders who specialise in offering bad credit car loans. This may be an option for financing a Toyota if you have issues in your credit history.
