Buying a Mazda 6 New vs Used

If you purchase a used Mazda 6 that is 2 years old, then you could save $5,662 compared to buying new, and still have a relatively new model with plenty of useful life remaining. If you plan to keep this vehicle for 3 years then your total cost of depreciation would be $7,377. Try other age and ownership length combinations, or different vehicles to see if you can find depreciation sweetspots where this cost is the lowest. Hint: Try vehicles between 2 and 4 years old, as brand new vehicles depreciate quickly. Also, if this is a recently released model and buying a few years old isn't possible, consider another vehicle, or perhaps wait until more used 6 models become available.

What About Mazda 6 Insurance Costs?

The average cost to insure a Mazda 6 is about $1,575 per year. This adds up to around $7,875 after 5 years of vehicle ownership.
