, Senior Pricing Analyst - November 7, 2017

Special offers from Mazda continue to be attractive. Leases start at just $169/month for the 2018 Mazda3, which now features low-speed emergency braking. However, this is probably your last chance to save up to $2,000 on last year’s model now that it’s close to selling out.

The redesigned CX-5 continues to be a hot seller with one of the best leases on an SUV at just $199/month in places like California, New York and others. That’s just $10 more than the CX-3, making this an easy decision for those looking to upgrade.

Current offers are due to expire November 30, 2017. Note that beginning November 24, Mazda will offer a $250 holiday bonus on the Mazda3, Mazda6 and CX-9 in Western states. We’ll likely see similar offers in other areas too.

**Update** Mazda has announced a $750 Black Friday Bonus in areas like Chicago. See our dedicated coverage for more info.

Tips on Mazda Financing, Lease Specials and Rebate Offers

Mazda offers tend to feature a nice choice of cashback, finance and lease deals. Traditionally, the automaker avoided offering cash incentives, but that changed about a year or so ago in a major shift in strategy to keep pace with competitors. However, don't expect to see the same level of discounts as Ford and Nissan. Profit margins on models like the CX-5 are quite thin, so aggressive pricing is rare.

Holidays are an opportunity to take advantage of some modest extra savings. Mazda has reliably offered a $250 holiday bonus at the very last minute before major holidays. That's nice, but it may not be worth waiting around for if you'd prefer to buy on your own schedule when your local dealer isn't filled with anxious holiday shoppers.

Leases are a great opportunity to get into vehicles like the Mazda6. However, models like the CX-9 and MX-5 Miata tend to feature less-attractive leases with effective costs well above vehicles with similar MSRPs. In some cases, it may be smarter to buy, so be sure to weigh your options carefully with the help of your dealer.
