Leasing vs Buying Mercedes-Benz

Up-Front Cost Typically, the up-front cost is less than a down payment when you choose a loan to buy a car. If you buy, the up-front cost can be significantly higher.
Vehicle-Ownership Leasing doesn’t make you the car-owner. However, you have the choice to choose a new Mercedes-Benz when you extend your lease. After you paid off the loan, you own your Mercedes-Benz.
Monthly Payment The monthly payment for Mercedes-Benz leasing is generally smaller than a car-purchase. That’s because lease payments include only the vehicle depreciation not the total car price. The monthly payment of auto loan is generally higher than leasing. This is because you pay for the full price of the vehicle.
Mileage Restriction Each Mercedes-Benz Leasing comes with mileage limits. A vehicle-leasing agreenent includes a standard amount of miles related to vehicle depreciation. Fees are incurred for extra miles accrued. When you buy a car, you pay the cost for maintenance, service and repair of your Mercedes-Benz car.
Repair Cost Mercedes-Benz leasing includes warranty maintenance that covers most maintenance and repair costs. When you buy a car, you pay the cost for maintenance, service and repair of your Mercedes-Benz car.
Contract A Mercedes-Benz leasing is a long-term car renting contract. If you end the lease early, expect to pay early-termination fees. Your lease agreement doesn’t allow you to make vehicle customizations too. Car-purchase means no contract. Enjoy the trade-in option, and customize it as you please

Frequently Asked Questions Leasing vs Buying


Here is a set of frequently asked questions on leasing vs buying.

I enjoy changing car every two to three years. Should I lease or buy?


Look at your vehicle ownership history and consider analyzing any future financial changes and your personal situation before moving forward. If your typical car-ownership range is less than 3 years, then Mercedes-Benz leasing may best fit your needs.


I drive more than 15,000 miles per year. Should I lease or buy?


Your commuting habits play an important role too. Do you drive far to work every day, or you will just be using your brand-new Mercedes-Benz as a weekend cruiser only? Think about these and find out where your new Mercedes-Benz fits in this capacity. If your driving range goes over 15,000 miles in a year, then car-purchase may work best for you.


I love customizing my vehicle. Should I lease or buy?


Whether you want one of our certified pre-owned C-Class, or you have selected the new model of a brand-new GLC 300, you can never customize your car if you lease it. Even a slight modification on your leased vehicle can violate the lease terms. Your leasing term always requires you to return your vehicle in factory condition at the term-end. Buying, contrariwise, allows you to make custom modifications on your vehicle. If vehicle personalization is what you want, then you may consider to buy your Mercedes-Benz.


I love to trade-in my vehicle. Should I lease or buy?


If you expect a return on what you have spent on your vehicle, then car-buying is your option. Think about how you will be utilizing your vehicle in the future. With a Mercedes-Benz leasing, you don’t have the trade-in option. Financially speaking, having an instant cash-value on your car is a cool thing. But again, we all have different reasons for having a vehicle. If building an equity, cash-value and trade-in interest you, then choose to buy your car instead of leasing it.


I like a package that covers maintenance and repair costs. Should I lease or buy?


Your Mercedes-Benz needs maintenance and scheduled servicing as recommended by the manufacturer. If you buy a car, these costs are not typically covered after the factory warranty ends. In contrast, a Mercedes-Benz leasing agreement includes the GAP protection coverage, maintenance and repair costs all within its warranty. Sounds cool, right? If all-included is what you want, then Mercedes-Benz leasing may work in your favor.
