The 2017, 2013 & 2016 Mazda 3 model years are currently the best values.

On average, expect to pay only 73% of the original cost with 83% of the vehicle's lifetime remaining for a 2017 3. That gives it a Net Used Value® score of 10.46 which factors in annual maintenance costs, price decline, reliable years left and available inventory.

Also consider the 2013 & 2016 3 model years. Those currently have a generally low risk of any significant depreciation over the next several years.

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.
