Should I Buy or Lease a Bentley?

Bentley Driving


Picking out a new Bentley model is exciting, but what’s the next step? Once you find your favorite Bentley from our inventory, you’ll want to decide if you should buy or lease. Our finance team has put together a guide to help you decide which is more beneficial to you and your driving needs. Explore your options below and trust our finance team to help you get the process started when you’re ready.

Leasing vs. Buying: Long and Short-Term Costs

When choosing a luxury model such as a Bentley, you’ll want to stay up-to-date with the newest technology and style. In this case, leasing may be the better option as the lease terms allow you to upgrade to newer models every few years. If you prefer to own a Bentley, buying is the better option. Either way, here are a few facts on the cost of each:

  • Leasing offers covered maintenance. When you’re in need of a service for your Bentley, your lease contract typically covers the cost as long as you follow the recommended service schedule.
  • Financing gives you a chance to eliminate your monthly payment entirely. Though you’ll be paying less once the vehicle is paid off, the service costs will rise as the vehicle ages. Also, with a financed vehicle, you can add on all of the upgrades and accessories you want with no penalty.

Leasing vs. Buying: Mileage & Restrictions

  • Those who finance with the intent to pursue full ownership will not have to worry about mileage limits or restrictions.
  • Those who lease their vehicles will have to stay within certain strict boundaries, or pay a fee when their lease term comes to a close.

In short, if you tend to commute a shorter distance, a lease will suit you just fine. For those drivers who enjoy longer weekend rides, financing will take away the worry of keeping track of your mileage limits.

Leasing vs. Buying: Total Ownership and Customization

  • When you buy a vehicle (or finance its full cost), you can add whatever accessories catch your eye. You can also modify the vehicle more extensively with custom parts or upgrades if you choose, although doing so may void your warranty.
  • When you lease, you’ll need to keep the vehicle as close to factory condition as possible. When the vehicle is returned at the end of the lease, the dealership will need to resell it. Having it in the original condition will help them do this.

Leasing vs. Buying: Freedom, Options, & Processes

  • Financing offers flexibility. While you’re locked into a contract, you can sell or trade in the vehicle at any time. You can also refinance for a lower rate down the line.
  • Leasing is easy and convenient. As long as you take good care of the vehicle when it’s in your possession, you simply take it back to the lease return center and drive home in a newer model. You may also have the option to buy out the lease and bring home the vehicle you’ve been leasing.
