How to find a car online

Kijiji Autos is a great place to start shopping. You'll find new and used vehicles from dealers and private sellers who offer buyers an increasing amount of virtual options, such as online financing and purchasing. In 2020, 61% of buyers used sites like Kijiji Autos to choose their car. With the coronavirus still affecting how we shop, this number will likely climb in the upcoming year. 

You can connect to online car dealers in your area straight from Kijiji Autos. Searching for dealers who offer contactless services is as easy as checking off each service in the advanced search filters. 

Here is just a small example of dealers who offer digital retailing and contactless services:

Customize and view your car online

One of the perks of buying a new car is that you get to customize it however you want. Manufacturers such as Toyota, Honda and BMW offer interactive websites that allow you to build your vehicle from the inside out, from customized rims to leather seating colours. You can also take a virtual tour of your selected model so you can get a better sense of what the car feels like.

Online financing and purchasing

So, you've reached the stage in the selection process where you want to pay for the car. Many dealers and manufacturers offer in-house financial services straight from their websites. You'll know which dealers offer online purchasing and financing when you see them checked off on the contactless services section in the car ad.
Information you'll need when you apply for financing:

  • Your address of every place you've lived for the last three years
  • Your employer's address
  • The car make, year and model.
