, Senior Pricing Analyst - February 6, 2018

Special offers from Mazda continue to be attractive in February. Leases start at $169/month for the 2018 Mazda3, which now features low-speed emergency braking at no extra cost. Or, choose 0% financing for up to 60 months

The Mazda6 is available in two forms: 2017 and 2017.5. The updated version comes with more standard equipment but features half the amount of factory discounts. The best deal is on the 2017 Mazda6 with up to $3,000 cash.

The CX-3 continues to be one of the cheapest SUVs under $300. However, the larger CX-5 equates to a superior value given that it's just $10/month more to lease in certain parts of the country.

Current offers expire February 28, 2018. Promotions from Mazda can vary by region. The examples listed below assume a Los Angeles location. Check back for updates prior to Presidents' Day.

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.
