Google’s extensive suite of online tools will soon include a new interactive car loan payment estimation tool, according to recent reports.


The new tool is currently being tested by the company, and seems to look a fair amount like Google’s other related offerings — going by the image below (courtesy of Moz):

Google is testing a new loan interactive calculator for car payments. This was spotted by both Dr Pete Meyers and Kyle Sanders recently. It looks and feels a lot like the Google mortgage calculator feature that Google launched in February of this year. As you can see, you can enter the loan amount, the interest rate and the period of the loan, and then Google will show you your monthly payments. You can also toggle to see the maximum loan amount, as well.

Will we soon see car loans through Google or maybe a way to buy, lease or finance your new car through Google Comparison AdWords Ads? Maybe?

Interesting theories, but the new online tool could simply be a result of Google’s desire to expand its offerings. Or, of course, it could have something to do with a Google Car….
