One of the most common questions we get pertains to the differences between leasing and buying a car. What are the differences between these two driving options? And which one is the best choice for your lifestyle and your budget?


For drivers who are looking for a short-term investment that is more affordable on a monthly basis, leasing may be a good option for you to consider. Since it is more affordable per month, you can access a variety of modern vehicles without worrying about breaking the bank. Additionally, leasing can be a good match for city drivers in Carmel, IN and beyond, or those who want a professional vehicle.

However, leasing also comes with some compromises. You need to abide by mileage parameters. Furthermore, you need to keep the vehicle in good condition.


Buying a vehicle is the more traditional financing route to pursue. While buying a car does often result in a higher monthly payment than leasing, it also comes with fewer restrictions. You need to have your credit checked and take out an automotive loan, but you don't have to abide by any mileage parameters or worry about the condition of your vehicle. Furthermore, buying a car is a long-term investment, so you are searching for a driving option that you really love -- not just something modern.

Which One Is Right for Me?

So, which financing option is right for you? There is no objective right answer to this question. However, you should consider what your driving habits are and what your finances look like. If you drive mostly in the city, and you are keeping a close eye on your budget, we recommend checking out leasing as a potential financing option. Alternatively, if you want a long-term investment and you don't mind paying a bit more per month, we recommend buying a car.
