  • Maintenance - Estimated maintenance and repair costs during that year of ownership.
  • $ Decline - Year over Year price decline.
  • % Decline - Year over Year percentage of decline.
  • % Paid - Percentage paid of the original price.
  • % Left - Percentage left of reliable years of the vehicle.

The 2016, 2017 & 2015 Mazda 3 model years are currently the best values.

On average, expect to pay only 62% of the original cost with 75% of the vehicle's lifetime remaining for a 2016 3. That gives it a Net Used Value® score of 12.7 which factors in annual maintenance costs, price decline, reliable years left and available inventory.

Also consider the 2017 & 2015 3 model years. Those currently have a generally low risk of any significant depreciation over the next several years.

Own a 2016 Mazda 3?

While we would advise holding onto this vehicle for a few years, that's not always the plan. Dealers have access to similar figures so they know that your vehicle has a low risk of depreciation.
