The Differences Between Purchasing & Leasing

So what are the main differences between purchasing & leasing? Which is the best option to choose?


Purchasing a car has a lot of benefits; not only do you get to have ownership of the vehicle (both during the time you are paying back the automotive loan, and after you have completely paid it off) you can choose where you go, how often you drive, and how often you maintain your car.

However, purchasing a vehicle involves taking out a car loan. Since the majority of people who shop for a car do not have the entire starting price available to shell out an automotive loan is needed to cover the initial cost of the loan. This loan then breaks down into monthly payments, which you pay until you cover the entire amount of the loan you have taken  out.


Leasing is a bit different. First of all, there is no need to take out an automotive loan. Since leasing is akin to renting an apartment, there is a predetermined monthly amount that you will pay during the life of the lease. Furthermore, leasing can often be more affordable on a monthly basis, due to the way loans break down on a monthly scale.

However, leasing comes with some restrictions. They are certain mileage parameters you need to abide by, and you need to ensure the car you lease maintains its quality upon return. Both of these things can be difficult for some drivers (those who drive a lot, and those who travel extensive distances).

Which Option Is Best For Me?

There is no easy answer to this question; it is entirely dependent on your personal preferences and your driving habits. However, if you are someone who knows they want to own their vehicle (or have more freedom on the road) then you may be interested in purchasing a car. If, however, you need a short-term car that benefits your wallet, then you may be interested in learning more about leasing.
