Benefits of leasing at Royal Subaru

  • With lease terms of 24 to 48 months available here at Royal Subaru, you can drive a new car every few years if you like.
  • Lease terms typically fall under the new Subaru warranty period, so you'll find that most regular maintenance costs are already covered.
  • With the options to buy out your lease or turn in the keys and walk away at end-of-lease, you'll have plenty of attractive options with a Subaru lease here at Royal Subaru

Benefits of buying at Royal Subaru

  • When you finance your car with a car loan, you pay to own the car, rather than just paying to drive it as you would with a lease.
  • While leasing comes with a mileage limit, purchasing does not. So, if you're the type of person who loves to take long road trips here in Indiana, buying may be a smart bet for you.
  • Love the freedom to customize your car with Subaru parts and accessories? When you buy a car here at Royal Subaru, you'll be free to do so, while leasing typically means you'll be restricted in your customization options.
  • When you buy, you'll be free to sell or trade-in your car when you're ready for your next one. With leasing, you'll have to turn in your lease or buy the leased car for a price agreed upon at lease signing.
