A new car can be leased for little or no down payment, according to Consumer Reports. A lessee makes payments for the depreciation of the vehicle during the leasing period, rather than paying full price or making loan payments. This allows a person to drive a vehicle that may otherwise be out of their price range. The lessee has the option of buying the vehicle after the leasing period ends, sometimes at a smaller price than if they had purchased the vehicle new, says U.S. News & World Report.
Leasing is favorable for people who are concerned with having the newest features and technology in their vehicle, notes Cars.com. A lessee is able to consistently drive a new or late-model vehicle if they choose to turn their vehicle in at the end of the lease period, then start another lease on a new vehicle. There is a smaller likelihood of a new or late-model vehicle needing repairs, compared to an older vehicle that was purchased outright.Learn more about Buying & Selling
