Nearly one in three vehicles on the road today is leased, which means leasing is becoming increasingly popular as drivers realize its many benefits. Whether you want to upgrade to a vehicle that would normally be out of your price range or you simply want to make lower monthly payments, here are some reasons to consider leasing as you shop for your next vehicle.
UPGRADING YOUR VEHICLE
Luxury vehicles and sports cars are out of most buyers’ price range, which is one major reason to consider leasing. Today, about 75 percent of luxury vehicles are leased, which means you can get the prestige and refinement you want without breaking the bank. Offering better performance, sophisticated amenities, and the latest safety and infotainment technologies, luxury and sports cars are ideal for leasing.
LOW DOWN PAYMENT
Most companies suggest you pay 10 to 20 percent of a vehicle’s initial value when making a down payment to buy, which exceeds $3,300 on average for new vehicles. If you don’t have that much saved, leasing allows you to avoid a hefty down payment.
LOW MONTHLY PAYMENTS
When you lease, you’re usually paying for the vehicle’s depreciation during the life of the lease. Given the high residual value of newer cars in recent years, you can save big on monthly payments when you lease compared to buying. This is often especially appealing for recent grads, part-time workers, retirees, and others on a limited monthly income.
Most leased vehicles are also covered under warranties because they’re new, which means you don’t have to worry about costly repairs. Some leases will also allow you to negotiate maintenance costs, such as oil changes, inspections, and tire rotations, because dealerships want to maintain the value of a leased vehicle. If you want to avoid being hit with a huge bill for repairs, consider leasing your next vehicle.
