Leasing
Leasing is a great way to drive the latest vehicles at a lower price point than financing. Generally, a lease will have both a lower monthly payment and down payment than buying a car. Trading in is also very easy with a lease. Just go to your dealership, pay any final fees, and you’re good! And with a lease, it’s easy to always have the latest gadgets. Most leases run for about 3 years, so when your lease is over you can easily upgrade to a new vehicle with all the latest tech. One of the biggest bonuses to leasing is having a warranty. Chances are the factory warranty will still be good when you trade in, depending on the amount you drive.
 
Financing
The biggest difference between leasing and financing is that you own the vehicle. You can make modifications and can drive it as much as you want. You’ll also be building equity in your vehicle, so long as your monthly payments are higher than the vehicle’s depreciation. That means when it comes time to buy a new car, you have built-in value to go towards your new down payment. Financing also makes it possible to be free of car payments. Eventually, you can pay off your car, and at that point, you get the title and no longer make any payments! Pretty cool, right?
