Differences Between Buying & Leasing
a Kia in Springfield, MO


Whenever you get a new vehicle - whether you're thinking of a sedan, a hatchback, an SUV, or a minivan - you'll need to decide between buying vs. leasing. Maybe you've always leased, but are thinking that this time around, buying is a smarter option, or vice versa. Our comparison page is here to help you make your decision.

Leasing Benefits

  • Lease payments will almost always be much smaller than finance payments, even if you want a more expensive model or trim.
  • Leases are almost always covered under warranty for the entire time you use the vehicle, so you don't have to worry about out-of-pocket expenses.
  • Unlike when purchasing, where you might feel the need to keep your vehicle for as long as it keeps working, leasing allows you to upgrade to the newest models every few years.
  • When you are ready to upgrade, you don't have to worry about finding a buyer for your car. Just drop your leased vehicle off at the dealership and you're good to go!

Financing Benefits

  • Leased vehicles often have strict care requirements and mileage allotments. When you buy your car, you can drive as much as you like and modify it however you like.
  • If you decide you want or need something different than what you're driving, or have to sell your car for any reason, you can do so whenever - even if you haven't finished making payments! There is no "early termination fee" as there is with leasing.
  • As you make payments, you build equity in your car - and once you do pay off your car, you own it outright, and can save money in the long-term.
