Lease vs. Purchase

When searching for that perfect Mercedes-Benz in San Diego County, we know you have options. You also have options when it comes to your decision to buy or lease your Mercedes-Benz. You’ve already done all the research necessary to find the perfect model, best safety features, and trim levels that work best for you – so let us jump in and help out with the rest.
In order to help you with your decision, our team at Mercedes-Benz of Carlsbad put together a little breakdown of the differences and benefits of buying or leasing a Mercedes-Benz with us.

Leasing a Mercedes-Benz

Newer is better

The truth is, that new car smell never gets old. Leasing your Mercedes-Benz guarantees you always have the latest and greatest Mercedes-Benz model on the road.

Lower Monthly Payments

When you choose to lease a car, you’re paying the lease to drive it, not own it outright. That means that overall, you’ll be paying significantly less in monthly payments than you would be with a car loan.

Buying a Mercedes-Benz

Own your Mercedes-Benz

We all know the feeling – you finally found “the one” and you can’t imagine a life without it. Good news is, you don’t have to give up your Mercedes-Benz vehicle until you want to. Though your monthly payments might be a little higher than leasing, you have a variety of different options to choose from when choosing to finance or outright pay for your Mercedes-Benz.

Drive as much as you want

When you lease a Mercedes-Benz, you agree to a specific mileage limit. Exceeding that can mean incurring additional fees at the end of your lease. However, when you purchase your Mercedes-Benz, there are no limits on how far you can drive it.

Freedom to sell your Mercedes-Benz

As stated before, once you purchase your Mercedes-Benz, it’s all yours! You have the freedom to do with it as you wish. You’re free to sell it privately or trade it with us. Whichever option you choose, it’s all up to you!

Now that you’ve read a little bit about what makes buying and leasing a Mercedes-Benz unique, we hope that your choice is a little clearer. However, if you’d like to go over the pros and cons of each option in a little more depth, our team would be happy to help out. Feel free to stop in to our dealership in Carlsbad, CA any time.
