Should I Buy or Lease a new Mercedes-Benz?

Choosing the right Mercedes-Benz for you can be tricky. Once you pick it out, you still have another question you need to ask: do you want to buy it, or would you rather lease? Neither option is strictly better than the other; it really depends on what you're looking for in your Mercedes-Benz. Here is a quick rundown of the difference between the two, to help you better decide which option is right for your financial future.



Leasing your Mercedes-Benz means that you get to drive it for the length of the lease, then you return it to the dealership when the lease is up. While buying a vehicle means that you pay for its full value, leasing means that you only pay for its projected value depreciation over the course of the lease. Lease periods are almost always less than the vehicle's warranty, so you have plenty of peace of mind. One downside of leasing is yearly mile limits. When you lease a vehicle, it has a set limit for how many miles it can drive in a year. You have to pay extra for each mile you drive over the limit. Fortunately, yearly mile limits aren't enough to inhibit everyday driving. If you plan to mostly just drive around town, leasing can be great. If you want to go on a cross-country road trip, buying is a better option.


Buying your Mercedes-Benz means that you're in it for the long haul. Buying has you pay for the vehicle's value, but once it is fully paid off, the vehicle is yours. You can modify it as you see fit. Buying a vehicle also means that you can use it for a trade-in on your next vehicle. Buying a Mercedes-Benz also means that you can drive it as much as you want.
