According to Holden, benefits of the new financial service are multitudinous, including: quick and thorough loan approval process, availability of quick-to-market retail financing options, availability of both retail and commercial financing at the dealership, active loan management throughout the lifetime of vehicle ownership, a branded customer experience, and the peace of mind that comes with doing business with a trusted brand in the banking industry.
“Holden recognizes the growing importance of finance solutions in adding value and convenience for our customers. This is another important step in Holden’s ongoing commitment to putting the customer at the center of everything we do,” said Holden Executive Director of Sales, Peter Keley. “With the launch of HFS, Holden dealers can now offer a range of finance offers to customers, in addition to Holden’s pre-existing insurance solutions.
“Forming an alliance with another iconic and trusted Australian brand like St. George Bank is fantastic,” Kelley added. “HFS will deliver a fully-branded customer and dealer experience. Building brand loyalty and exceeding our customers’ expectations is crucial to our future success and Holden Financial Services will deliver a fully-branded and seamless customer and dealership experience.”
Holden’s lineup is set to include the new Astra by late 2016, with the new vehicle replacing the Holden Cruze. A Holden-badged version of the GMC Acadia is also being considered for addition to Holden’s current lineup sometime down the line.
