Purchase. Buying is always cheaper, though not as convenient for some people. And rarely do you have maintenance/repair costs that top depreciation losses. Though manufacturers are throwing in sweet maintenance programs(24 months/24K miles for my 2014 Equinox) that it's hard to turn them down.

Lease. I like to have something new every few years and not have maint costs. For me leasing is cheaper than buying. You take a big loss either way but if you want to continually be in a new car then it is cheaper to lease.
