You are just renting it for 2-4 years and even though they depreciate you will have nothing to show after $20,000-$30000 in payments.
There are exceptions like when a lease payment can be written off 100% as a corporate expense, but for the average buyer of a vehicle that has no corporate agenda to write down profits leasing is a scam that only favors MB and the dealers.

Whether you lease or buy, you still get to drive around in a new Benz. The difference is, at the end of your lease you own nothing. But you can lease another brand new one and repeat the process.

Driving a Benz for as long as you can pay for it is one thing. Driving a Benz every day for the rest of your life is another. Both choices are valid.

Buying v/s leasing is like getting married v/s paying hookers for sex.
The first makes sense to one, the other prefers the second.
