Leasing a vehicle comes with many benefits. The greatest benefit of leasing a car is lower out-of-pocket costs when acquiring and maintaining a MINI Cooper.  When leasing, you can put little or no down payment and roll your upfront taxes and fees into the monthly payment. You can usually get more features and options that you wouldn’t necessarily get if you financed. If you’re trying to stay within a certain payment range and you get the pleasure of owning a new car every few years, leasing may be the best option for you.  In addition, most lease terms keep you within the warranty and maintenance period, so you don’t have to worry about service costs.

You’ve chosen to lease your MINI for all the benefits and now your lease is coming to end, so now what?

As the largest MINI lease return center in Schaumburg near Chicago, we’ll walk you through 3 options when your lease is maturing.

  1. Turn it in and walk away
  2. Buy it for the residual value
  3. Lease or buy another MINI

Turning your lease in and walking away gives you the option to get into another brand.  As much as we would love for you to continue your driving journey with MINI, we understand the excitement of something new.

Buying your current lease at its residual value, which is the car’s estimated worth at the end of your lease term and is in your contract terms, is another option.  If you fell in love with it and want to continue with ownership, the team at Patrick MINI can provide you a cash buyout figure, finance options & protection plans to cover you during the new ownership.

You can lease or buy a brand-new MINI.  As mentioned earlier, one of the benefits of leasing allows you to own a new car every few years.  Another perk is offered by MINI USA called Loyalty Bonuses.  Bonuses applied to the lease or purchase of a new MINI for current or previous MINI owners.  The amount of the bonus varies based on model.  Our management team will provide new leasing options that include the loyalty bonuses.

We know you don’t do this every day, but we do so whatever your choice will be, the team at Patrick MINI will help make it simple.
