what percent discount are you getting?

with SUVs being more popular, sedans should have fat discounts, right?

What percent discount were you offered on the 6?

Not sure what percentage it would translate into, but for a new 2018 sedan, a few hundred dollars BELOW invoice.
Start at invoice and subtract any current customer cash incentives.

if you mention your offered price and msrp, that would help.

But if it's just a few hundred below invoice, that's a crappy discount.

For example, the sport msrp is $22,995 excluding destination, and invoice = $21,842

if you got $21,350 , that would only be a 7% discount.

I was thinking people would be getting 15% discounts left and right.

Not gonna happen, there isn't some crazy glut of cars just sitting on the lot so there's no need for them to discount them at rock bottom prices. They are selling just fine at the prices being asked now. Also, Mazda isn't a luxury brand. The prices are set much closer to cost than you think. On a Lexus, BMW or any other luxury brand, sure, you can get 15% off. But that's because they have much higher margins and they have quite a bit more room to discount their vehicles. Manufacturers like Honda and Mazda operate on smaller margins, depending more on volume vs profit per unit. Sedans still sell in fair amounts, even with the majority moving to SUVs. Automakers have also already accounted for this by reducing the volume of sedans they make so they don't flood the market with inventory.

If you want "fat" discounts, maybe just purchase used

Also, you can do your own research to find the invoice and msrp of any given car through sites like Edmunds.com and kbb.com to find the average selling price of any given vehicle on the market, new and used with pricing specific for your region as it varies from state to state.

mazda being small does not have the same dealer "holdback" as some of the bigger players. One of the biggest reasons for Camry's success has been its heavily discounted price. You can walk into any Toyota store and get a 15% off MSRP on most Camry models all year long. Mazda does not have that luxury, so most times you are looking at 5%-7% discount off MSRP tops. Based on the data on this forum, atleast when i bought my car new in 2016, the guys on west coast were getting much better deals than on the east coast.

On a side note, came really close to pulling the trigger on a brand new Toyota 4Runner . Every stealership in my area want a ridiculous 7%-10% over sticker. Even used ones 2014 and above are so close in price to brand new ones. I just walked away from the deal. What a difference compared to 2007-2009 when one could have these trucks for 10% under sticker all day long. Don't even get me started on Tacos with TRD Pro package !

I got something like 12% off MSRP on my 2017 Touring manual. Not sure what the invoice price was.

Also 0.0% financing.

The time in the model year when you buy also impacts the discount rate very significantly. With the 2018 being early in it's launch cycle and the 2018 model year, I wouldn't expect huge discounts. Picking up a left over 2017 or 2017.5 on the other hand..

now that's what I want to hear.

I'll just keep sending 12% bids to all the dealers and see who eventually bites. I'm in no rush to get a car.

Did you notice he said "2017 Touring Manual"? Good luck with finding one (...they're all gone now). If you're sending bids on a 2018, see you next summer when the model year is ending and they're willing to discount more than they will today.

Add to this that the 2018 Mazda 6 actually sold 36% more Mazda 6 sedans than it did June of last year, so I doubt that anyone will discount the car a huge amount. Since there's no rush, I guess a year of waiting won't be a big deal.
