Leasing vs. Buying a Mercedes-Benz in California

Not sure whether you should lease or buy your new Mercedes-Benz? Below we've outlined a few key questions to ask yourself to help determine which option is best.



Do you drive more than 20,000 miles/year? No Yes
Do you enjoy driving a new vehicle every 2 or 3 years? Yes No
Do you typically sell or trade-in your vehicle prior to the expiration of your financing term? Yes No
Would you prefer to drive a more expensive vehicle with lower monthly payments? Yes No
Is owning the vehicle you drive important to you? No Yes

If you typically drive less than 20,000 miles a year, enjoy driving a new vehicle, and would like a lower monthly payment amount, leasing your next Mercedes-Benz may be the best option. If you prefer owning your vehicle or drive more than 20,000 miles a year, buying your Mercedes-Benz still offers the most flexibility and freedom when it comes to vehicle ownership.
