Buying or Leasing: Which is Right for You? 

Alfa Romeo lease

There are so many decisions to make when you’re looking for a new car. Choosing a model usually comes first. Next, you’ll need to decide if you want to buy or negotiate an Alfa Romeo lease

We’ve put together this guide to help you choose the right option for your lifestyle and budget. When you’ve made up your mind, come into Zeigler Alfa Romeo for a test drive. 

The Case for Leasing an Alfa Romeo

Why does it make sense to lease an Alfa Romeo Giulia sedan? You probably know something about depreciation. In the first few years, a new car can lose up to 20 percent of its value. 

Depreciation is never an issue with a leased vehicle since you turn it in after two to three years and get a new one. Plus, you never need to haggle over the price of a trade in. 

Finally, it makes sense financially as leasing a car rarely requires a large down pavement. You might wind up with lower monthly payments, too, which adds up to savings over time.

The Case for Buying an Alfa Romeo

Now, let’s look at the other option. It makes sense to buy an Alfa Romeo Stelvio SUV if you’re planning to keep it for a long time. Long-term ownership allows you to build equity in a vehicle. 

You also have the hope that there will come a day when there are no more monthly payments. You’ll also have something to use as a trade-in to lower the cost of a new car. 

Perhaps the most important reason to choose buying over leasing comes down to driving habits. Leased vehicles come with strict mileage restrictions, with hefty fees for every mile over the limit. If you drive a lot for your job or you enjoy weekend road trips, a lease might not be the best fit for you.
