Here’s what’s on offer: Starting this past week until May 1, the Japanese automaker is offering a $1,500 bonus in western US states, like California, on all 2016 MX5s. If you don’t live out west, then it’s still worth the effort to bargain down the price, armed with the knowledge that Mazda is in kind of a bind here. The new 2017 MX-5 Miata RF
, which is just hitting showrooms, is the likely culprit in hurting remaining ’16 model year sales. But what if you’re a current MX-5 Miata owner and were only pondering the idea of snagging up a new one? Also a good time to do that because Mazda is offering a $500 loyalty bonus.
