Car Financing vs. Car Leasing

Are you wondering what the difference is between car financing and car leasing is? Is one better than the other? Car leasing and car financing are both very convenient ways to get behind the wheel of the new FIAT you’ve been dreaming of. And while no one option is inherently better than the other, your choice will depend on your own financial needs and lifestyle. Compare financing vs car leasing below:

Auto Financing

  • Financing a car is more expensive than leasing, as far as monthly payments are concerned. You’ll also be expected to put more money down.
  • You’ll be able to customize your vehicle and/or sell it later if you choose, as you’ll own your vehicle outright.
  • If you later decide to trade-in your financed car, you and the dealer will have to come up with a solution if you still owe money on it.

Car Leasing

  • Car leasing will typically come with a lower down payment and lower monthly payments.
  • At the end of your lease term, you can trade-in your vehicle for another right away. You can also purchase it outright if you find that you’d like to own it permanently.
  • You’ll enjoy warranty coverage for the entire duration of your lease.
  • As part of your lease contract, you’ll have to adhere to mileage restrictions.
