The costliest factor of owning a car is its depreciation. Think about it. The moment the car drives off the dealer’s lot, it loses value. While many people take out a car loan to finance a car, leasing offers another way to have a new car in your driveway.
When it comes to buying and leasing, there’s no one size fits all answer. Consumers should carefully consider all of the pro and cons, and the costs involved to determine which option best fits their needs.

There are several benefits to leasing versus buying a car. We’ve compiled a list of reasons why we consider leasing the better option.
Most leases require little to no upfront cash, allowing you to drive a new car without the large down payments associated with installment loans.
Monthly lease payments average 20 percent lower than comparable transactions involving installment loans. This saves you thousands of dollars over the term of your lease.
Lease payments are determined by a vehicle’s resale value at the end of the terms: the higher the resale value, the lower the payments. The resale value is positively influenced by a car’s options. Simply put, you can drive a better-equipped car when you lease than when you buy.
Leasing provides an alternative when buying a car is too expensive. When you lease, you essentially rent the car for a fixed number of months (e.g. 48 months) and pay to use the car only during the terms of your lease.
When your lease terms are up, you can choose to return your vehicle and lease a new one. When you lease, you avoid the hassle of negotiating trade-in values on your old vehicle, as well as the need to present a down payment for a new car.
