Should I Use A Personal Loan Or A Car Loan To Purchase My Next Car? 

advice, audi, autos, cars, audi e-tron, mrecap: week of 25th april 2022 - personal or car loan, stop-start myths and misconceptions and audi e-tron mreview!

When purchasing a new car, most buyers would typically waltz into the showroom of a preferred marque, sample what the brand has to offer, then let the dealer process the rest of the loan paperwork for you.

The general process is the same when acquiring a used car. Dealers often have loan packages, either from an in-house source or with a tie-up with a financial institution, with varying interest rates and loan amounts.

There’s another option when it comes to financing used cars, which we’re sure is an avenue some would have entertained when all else fails – a Personal Loan. But just which type of loan suits your use case the best?

Stop-Start Myths And Misconceptions

advice, audi, autos, cars, audi e-tron, mrecap: week of 25th april 2022 - personal or car loan, stop-start myths and misconceptions and audi e-tron mreview!

Start-stop systems can be bothersome to live with. And with ever-tightening emissions regulations, it’s not something that you can actively avoid too.

Progressively fitted to even mass-market cars towards the tail end of the 2010s, these systems help to reduce fuel consumption, and thus carbon emissions, by shutting your engine off in scenarios that it would otherwise be left idling.

Its benefits are obvious – think not insignificant fuel savings, though the judders as the engine fires back into life are something that most commuters still find too jarring, despite the system’s pervasiveness.

Misinformation is rife on the internet, so let’s settle some scores and right some common myths about this controversial system!

The causeway reopening allows Singaporeans to make alternate weekend plans across the border. Enticed by the wide, open roads and the allure of affordable entertainment, many have already made their way over.

In tangible numbers, more than 1.2 million travellers have hopped across since the restrictions were lifted at the start of the month. To make the trip over, you’ll need a passport with six or more months of validity, and a valid VEP application for your vehicle.

mReview: Audi e-tron S Sportback – The Good Kind Of Excess

advice, audi, autos, cars, audi e-tron, mrecap: week of 25th april 2022 - personal or car loan, stop-start myths and misconceptions and audi e-tron mreview!

There’s this sense of invincibility when you find yourself perched behind the wheel of the Audi e-tron S Sportback. The sheer mass and size of the car certainly helps to create that illusion.

Audi’s newest tri-motor e-Tron S Sportback drips with automotive excess. It is a car that is best described with superlatives. It is a full-sized coupe SUV, has 1,000Nm of torque, and a price tag just south of half a million dollars.

Especially in the Catalunya Red Metallic our test car was finished in, the e-tron S Sportback is brash and loud – though we aren’t sure if those are the appropriate adjectives for the car.
