Should I Lease Or Loan My New Volvo Vehicle?

Once you've located the perfect new Volvo model, whether that be the Volvo XC60, XC90, V60, or others, you'll have to decide whether or not you want to lease or loan. While both options are viable, they do each come with their own sets of pros and cons. Here's a closer look at each option.

  • Leasing
    • Description: You receive a brand-new vehicle for a set payment a month until your lease is up.
    • Pros: Lower monthly payment, latest technological features, warranty coverage, easy trade-in, less or no down payment, and less money spent on taxes/insurance.
    • Cons: You don't own the vehicle, mileage limits, no customization, no trade-in value for your next vehicle, end of lease fees, use restrictions.
  • Loaning
    • Description: You purchase your vehicle with a loan from a lender and it's yours until you either trade it in or resell it.
    • Pros: You own the vehicle, unlimited mileage, customization is available, trade-in value for your next new car, no more payments once the loan is paid in full, loan refinance is a possibility, sell your vehicle whenever you want.
    • Cons: Requires a down payment, more expensive monthly payments at first, more money spent on sales tax and insurance, warranty will fade and you'll need to cover your own repairs, wavering resale value.
