Shopping for a new car can be an exciting experience, especially with the outstanding values in the new Kia lineup. But eventually every shopper will have to address the question of how to pay for their new car. Only your unique circumstances can determine whether buying or leasing is the right choice for you, but here’s a quick primer on the advantages of each below:
Most car shoppers opt to finance their new Kia for a variety of reasons. Buying a car is a long-term commitment, but owners have a greater amount of freedom. Unlike lessees, car owners have no mileage limits, no penalties for any aesthetic or mechanical damage, and the freedom to modify their car however they want (though certain modifications can void a new car warranty). And at the end of the financing term, buyers can trade in their old Kia, sell it, or even keep it around as a hand-me-down for even greater savings.
Leasing allows buyers to shop for a better car with more features without the long-term financial commitment. Because, leasing allows shoppers to essentially “rent” the car from the dealership, they are only responsible for the cost of depreciation during the period of the lease rather than the entire sticker price, hence the lower payments. Lessees will still have to protect the car from damage and abide by mileage limits, but at the end of the term they can simply walk away and find a brand new Kia.
