Leasing offers unique benefits and lifestyle advantages when compared to financing a new vehicle. When you lease a vehicle, you only pay for a portion of the vehicle's depreciation instead of its full Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). This makes monthly leasing payments substantially lower than finance payments on the same model over an equivalent term. Kia Motors Finance offers lease terms of 24 to 60 months. Lease contracts can vary in length.
With shorter terms, leasing lets you upgrade to a new vehicle more often. At the end of your lease term, you will have several options. If you are ready for a new Kia, simply return your vehicle to your dealership and lease a new one. If you want to continue enjoying your current vehicle, you can contact us to obtain a buyout quote.
TIP: Depending on your driving habits, there are options to purchase additional kilometres at the beginning of the lease contract at a substantially lower cost. If you use your leased vehicle for business purposes, you may be eligible for certain tax benefits. Consult your financial advisor for more information.
