Choices and stress are close cousins, and when shopping around for a new vehicle, both are had in abundance, especially when it comes to financing. Finding a respectable new ride can be relatively exciting--you get to explore new features, take test drives and talk colors; but when it comes to working out finance, though only two options, you want to ensure every detail has been gone over with a fine tooth comb.  Because budgets are not one-size-fits-all, neither are loans and leases, and unless you're a seasoned car buyer or financing expert, you're likely in need of some guidance: Is it better for you to loan or lease your new Kia?


The answer might not be reached quickly, but we at DARCARS Kia Temple Hills can at least help you get there faster. So that you have a better idea of what each financial avenue provides, we went ahead and listed the advantages of both:

The Advantages of Leasing a New Kia

  • Tight on cash? A lease provides lesser monthly payments because you are only driving a new Kia for a portion of its life.
  • Additionally, its lower cost helps you explore trims and models you might not have been able to afford originally.
  • At the end of your lease, you are provided a number of promising motoring opportunities
  • If you prefer to keep up with the latest trends, a lease allows you to do that; continue to lease and you'll be driving a new car every few years.

The Advantages of Buying a New Kia

  • Want to accessorize your ride with a custom paint job or tinted windows? You can because your car is 100-percent your own.
  • Drive all over the country throughout the year? By purchasing a car, you have no restraints; you can travel as far and as much as you please.
  • You alone benefit from a trade-in or resale.
  • Once you make the final payment, the only money you will have to spend on your car is for occasional maintenance or repairs.

Think you have a better semblance of which route is a better match for your lifestyle? Then come meet with our financing associates here in Temple Hills. They'll work with your budget to uncover a loan or lease that works best for your financial situation and get you off driving in the greater Alexandria, VA, Washington DC, Silver Spring, and Waldorf region in no time.
