New-Car Shoppers Will Pay Higher Costs

Anyone planning to buy a new car for the first time in a while might need to prepare themselves for a bit of a shock. The combination of higher auto prices, longer loans, and bigger interest rates means that a buyer could pay about $6,500 more for a car that they would have five years ago.

The average price paid for a new car reached the $34,623 mark in March. Five years ago, that number was 31,078. The loans bring their share to the price, too. Growing interest rates makes borrowing more expensive. Now interest rates on new-car loans stand at 5.7 percent compared with 4.4 percent in March 2013. And because of the growing prices, consumers have been financing larger balances: an average of $31,020 compared to $26,533 five years ago.
