Leasing versus financing a car
Still trying to decide which financial plan works best for you? Check out our quick guide for the pros and cons of financing and leasing!
Cost: You will pay monthly installments based on an amount pro-rated to the term and kilometre option of your choice; plus any extras such as Protection Plans, accessories, and fees. Taxes are calculated on the monthly payment, not on the full price of the vehicle.
Ownership: You do not own the vehicle while you pay your monthly installments. When you complete your final installment, you will have the option of buying your Volkswagen for a predetermined price, or returning it.
Payments: Similar to renting a home, you pay a monthly installment for exclusive use of the vehicle over a fixed term, with an option to purchase the vehicle for a predetermined amount (residual value) at the end of the term. You can reduce your installment amount by making a down-payment at the time of purchase. Your first payment is due on the day you take delivery.
Personalization: You can customize the term, kilometre allowance, and more to suit your personal situation.
Upgrading Your Vehicle: At any time during, or at the end of the fixed term, you can explore upgrading to a new Volkswagen with your dealer. There is no penalty for paying out your lease early.
