General Benefits of Leasing a New Land Rover

Leasing a car is not an investment. It's similar to renting an apartment. You'll get to pick the model, trim level, customization, and package options you desire, and then agree to a set term length. Leasing is great for:

  • Those that want lower monthly payments and deposits
  • Those who like to update their vehicle every couple of years
  • Those that love to keep their thumb on the beat of the automotive industry and always drive a new car
  • Those who don't have long commutes, take frequent road trips, or want unlimited mileage
  • Those who don't want to make an investment

General Benefits of Buying a New Land Rover

Buying a new Land Rover is a large investment. You'll be applying for auto financing, making a down payment, and then slowly paying the vehicle off over an agreed amount of time. Buying is great for:

  • Those who want to make an investment
  • Those who want to own their Land Rover
  • Those who need or want unlimited mileage
  • Those who want to customize their vehicle
  • Those who don't want a monthly payment once their vehicle is paid off

Will I Own My Land Rover?

Buy

Yes, your Land Rover will be in your name. Once you pay off monthly payments, it's 100-percent yours.

Lease

No, with a lease, you are technically renting or borrowing the vehicle from the dealership. You'll agree to some terms and conditions in your lease agreement, and when that agreement comes to an end, you'll return your lease for something new.

What Will My Down Payment Be?

Buy

Down payments with a financing agreement can be higher than that of a lease. The higher number you can put down, the lower those monthly payments will be.

Will I have a Mileage Limit?
