How is that different from buying a $45k car now and then in 4 years having a car that is only worth $20k?

Buy or lease, you can calculate it down to a monthly "cost" either way. Pick whichever option makes the most sense for your particular situation when you balance the monthly cost, your plans for how long you'll keep the car, etc.
