The new new package allows buyers of select models to make an up-front payment of 50 percent of the car's purchase price, with no interest and no payments to be made over the next 24 months.
Importantly, the arrangement offers three options for buyers at the end of the 24 month period: pay out the balance, begin a new finance arrangement for the balance, or trade it on a new model.
The offer is available on Carnival S and Carnival Si petrol models, and all but the 2013 Platinum grade of the Optima sedan.
The deal comes as more and more carmakers begin to embrace low- and zero-interest finance plans, with many exploring innovative new ways to entice buyers.
In late 2012, Nissan announced a pre-launch finance offer for its new Pulsar small sedan that ran through until the end of January 2012.
The packaged allowed buyers to make a 10 percent deposit, followed by monthly repayments over three years starting at $299.
At the end of the three year period, buyers can trade the car in for a new model, begin a new finance arrangement, or return the car with no more payments.
