Buying vs. Leasing: Which One is a Better Choice for You?

Shopping for a new car is one of the most exciting things you will ever experience because you will be given the chance to find something that be with you for years to come. But, it can be even more exciting when you get to shop for a Mercedes-Benz which is truly one of, if not the most impressive luxury automaker with a long legacy and tradition of excellence. But, when you are shopping for a new Mercedes-Benz you will have to determine whether leasing or buying will be best for you. Don't worry though, we have put together a few guidelines to help you decide which option is best for you.



  • Leasing is generally more affordable option for buyers because when you lease you can put down nothing while enjoy a lower monthly payment. You can put money down to save even more money every month!  
  • With a lease you will have a mileage limit over the entire duration of the lease, but with that you will also almost certainly not have to worry about any significant repairs or maintenance.
  • During leasing you do not own the car, but because you are leasing you can either buy the car at the end or get a completely new car.
  •  When you are leasing your car you have to be mindful of the wear and tear on your car because if the wear and tear is too severe, you may have to pay at the end.


  • One of the best parts of buying your car is that you will own it for as long as you want. While you may pay more every month, you can also sell that car at any time.
  • Additionally when you when you buy your car you are free to drive as much and as long as you want. This means you won't have to pay any overage charges at any time.
  • When you buy your car you are free to modify and upgrade your car to your liking and really be able to enjoy making this car unique.
  • Buying the car may be more expensive monthly, but at the end of your loan agreement you will have no payments left and will be able to either keep the car for longer or trade it in for a new car.
  • The decision to buy or lease a new Mercedes-Benz is a much bigger decision than you could have ever realized. But, our staff can help you to make this decision easier as we walk you through both options to ensure that the option you choose will work with your budget.
