Question New Car - Lease it or Buy it?

Hello Friends

I have just got a new job and I'm thinking of a new car, before going ahead and committing to something this big, I thought I'd ask the experts on here.

I read some articles in regard to leasing vs buying a new car, and the article basically said something along the lines of:

"If the new car will only retain 36% of its original value, then leasing would be the economically smarter choice, on the other hand if the car will retain >60% of its original value, then buying the car is wiser."

What do you guys think of the above? Also how good do Renault cars keep up their original purchase price?

I am thinking of going for the New Clio Dynamique S MediaNav dCi 90 EDC Auto. I like the looks of it, and seems to be fuel efficient with low emissions.

I would greatly appreciate any help and advice.

Thank You.
