It is, on a monthly basis, cheaper to lease than to buy. But, of course, at some point the lease expires, and you either have to turn the car back in or buy out the lease. But the buy out numbers I have seen have been crazy high, on the order of $80,000 for a car that might sell in the used market for $50,000-$60,000. So, if you still liked that particular model, it would make more sense to turn it in and buy it again. If you lease, you might spend $40,000 to own the car for 3 years. Not exactly chump change, but you never have to worry about repairs or paying for supercharging. And you can upgrade in 3 years, and I assume there will still be substantial changes going forward. Agree/disagree? Am I missing something?
