Buy or Lease a New Mercedes-Benz at Silver Star Motors

To summarize, buying means that the car you choose is fully yours. When payment is finalized you can do whatever you want to it. This means you have a ton more options for personalization. This also allows for much more flexible payment options.

Meanwhile, leasing means you only own the car for the duration of the contract. After that, it's back to being owned by the dealership. This means you can't customize your car and you don't get as many options for payment and personalization.

However, this means your lease payments are much less compared to financed payments and that you can lease a completely different car once your current contract is done. You're not locked into one vehicle if something goes wrong or if you don't like the model you picked.

Whether you're looking to lease or buy, there's plenty of options to find at Silver Star Motors. You can pick from the affordable 2018 Mercedes-Benz CLA coupe, the large and sturdy 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLS SUV, and even the 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class full-size luxury sedan among many more fashionable and award-winning models.
