I purchased a Mazda CX-5 Sport manual in liquid silver yesterday. Price was $21199. They would not go lower than that (as I mentioned, supply remain tight here) but they gave me a decent deal on the trade to make up for it. So it landed smack dab in the middle of the out-the-door price I wanted to pay. Very exciting!
The dealer invoice price for the CX-5 sport 6MT is $20589 ($19794+$795 destination) + a regional marketing assessment. In Georgia, the marketing assessment is $413 so the total dealer invoice in GA seems to be $21002. Another dealer internet manager confirmed the same to me regarding the invoice price in GA.
I got my liquid silver CX-5 sport 6MT $200 below invoice for $20802 + $1284 (6% tax) +$599 dealer fee, +$22 title/tag = $22707
I got the $200 taken off invoice since all the dealer fees in the Duluth/Satellite Blvd area are all set at $599 while some other dealers I talked with were at $379 or $499. It was actually a great experience to get all the price quotes in email and phone before even going back to a dealership to sign the paperwork. I probably could have gotten the same price from 2 other dealerships but the other 2 would have had to order it since they didn't have a 6mt on the lot.
We love driving it and a guy actually stopped next to us after dropping our daughter off at a birthday party on Saturday and asked us if it was the CX-5. He said he was going to a dealership later that day as his dad was buying a one also. I still haven't seen another one on the road besides ours yet though.
