Financing is a good option this month as Mazda's 0% APR deal is available on models like the 2021 Mazda6 and CX-9. For those that don't qualify for low financing, the 2021 Mazda3 Sedan has up to $1,750 in rebates which includes $1,000 in customer cash plus a $750 loyalty bonus if you're a returning Mazda customer.

Leases remain affordable on most models. The 2021 Mazda3 Hatchback is the best value option at $179/month. If you're looking for something roomier, the popular 2021 CX-5 presents a fair value starting at $222/month.

Offers from Mazda vary by region and are set to end March 31, 2021. Examples listed here are for the Los Angeles location unless noted otherwise.

Must-Know Advice For Mazda Buyers

Premium focus. The latest Mazdas have set a high standard as far as fit & finish. However, prices have risen as a result. For example, the MSRP of a Mazda3 hatchback with manual transmission rose to over $28,000 with the car's last redesign. A new turbocharged variant will exceed $30,000.

Sportier models now available. Mazda is adding turbo power to an increasing number of models. In addition to the 2021 Mazda3, the popular CX-30 will get one as well. For some buyers, this could create a really good reason to wait rather than buy now.

Offers vary by region. Mazda offers tend to feature a nice variety of cashback, finance, and lease deals. That said, rebates are not on par with competitors like Ford and Hyundai. The best lease prices are usually in major metro areas like Los Angeles and New York. In contrast, other cities feature better incentives for buying.

Finding the lowest prices. Like Toyota and Honda, Mazda forbids dealers from advertising below invoice price because of a rule called MAAP (Minimum Allowable Advertised Price). Dealers can still sell at whatever price they want, but you'll have to reach out to one in order to get the best price.

Fewer incentives than competitors. Rebates for any given model rarely go above $2,000, so don't expect to see a big "20% off" sale like Chevy or 0% financing for 66 months like Kia. Mazda does offer decent financing incentives that can often be a better value than rebates. Compare your options carefully.

Loyalty discounts vary. Mazda tends to offer a $750 loyalty discount. You don't have to trade-in your current vehicle, and the offer can be transferred to members of the same household. The fact that you can stack the offer with other incentives makes this a pretty good deal.

Holiday deals. Thinking of buying around July Fourth, Labor Day, or Memorial Day? Mazda sometimes introduces holiday bonuses worth up to $1,000 and perks like "No Payments For 90 Days" on select models. However, vehicles like the MX-5 Miata rarely see cash incentives or even promotional lease offers.

Used car deals. Looking to buy a used car or SUV? The Mazda Certified Used Vehicle Program offers the savings of a used car without having to sacrifice a warranty. In some cases, you can even get access to special rates and offers to waive your first month's payment. Check our monthly CPO deal coverage for the latest offers.
