New cars tend to be very expensive, and many would-be motorists simply don't have the cash to buy outright. Of course, there are other ways to get on the road; you could purchase a used car
, for example, although a second-hand vehicle is unlikely to offer the same performance and peace of mind as a brand new model.
The thing is, you don't actually have to buy
a car at all. Leasing
is becoming an extremely popular alternative to purchasing, and here are three very good reasons why:
- You get a brand new car. The newer a car is, the less likely it is to break down, and the less likely you are to waste your weekends trying to find a garage that's open on Saturdays.
- It's more budget-friendly. When you purchase a new car, you have to pay the full cost of the vehicle, sometimes up front. When you lease, you only have to pay the difference between the car's initial value and its estimated residual value - in other words, you only pay for the value lost over the course of your lease period.
- Once your contract is up, you can start again with another brand new car. People who lease instead of purchasing only keep the same car for a couple of years at a time. At the end of your lease period, you'll be able to take out a brand new lease on a brand new car, ensuring that you always have access to the very latest technology (not to mention the peace of mind that comes from driving a new car!)
