What's in store:
The carryover 2020 CX-5 continues flowing into dealers and is now in good supply nationwide. The diesel version hasn't been released yet, but it's scheduled to continue for 2020.
The 2019 CX-5 is still available in decent numbers. Supplies will likely hold out for at least another month.
Current factory offers vary by region and will remain in effect through February 3, 2020. Examples shown here are for Los Angeles.
Steady cash off:
Mazda continues to offer a $1,500 rebate on all 2019 CX-5 models, except the diesel. In addition, current Mazda customers are eligible for a $750 loyalty bonus toward a purchase or lease of any 2019 CX-5.
Only the loyalty bonus is available on the incoming 2020 CX-5.
Solid lease value:
The 2019 CX-5 Sport now starts at $231 for 36 months (12,000 miles a year) with $2,999 due at signing.
The effective monthly cost is $314, which falls short of a good value in our analysis. We could see improvement before the 2019s sell out.
The 2020 CX-5 Sport starts at $249 a month with everything else the same. With an effective monthly cost of $334, this lease is tad expensive for this price class. We do expect offers to improve over the next several months.
Low rate await:
Instead of the factory rebate on a 2019 CX-5, Mazda is offering 0.9% financing for 60 months on all non-diesel models. The best available rate on the CX-5 diesel is 2.9% for 60 months.
You can now get 0.9% for 60 months on the 2020 CX-5 as well. That's lower than usual for this early stage of the model year.
