It’s one of the biggest gestures you could make this holiday season: buying your loved one a car. It certainly would be a Christmas morning to remember if you managed to sneak a new car into your driveway, red ribbon and all, to be unveiled as the kids open their gifts. The truth is, you probably won’t be able to recreate that particular scene from the car ads, but buying your loved one a car for Christmas is still something they’ll never forget.

Before you go running to sign the papers, there are a few considerations to keep in mind. At Yorkdale Dufferin Mazda, we want all of our customers to walk away happy. That’s why we put together this quick list of things to consider if you’re thinking about buying a Mazda in Toronto as a Christmas gift.

#1 Ask What Kind of Car They Want

It may ruin the surprise, but it’s better than buying the wrong vehicle. You can’t return a car on Boxing Day, so you only have one chance to get this right. Ask them what kind of car they want to drive, unless you are 100 percent certain you know the vehicle they want to drive. Don’t forget, it’s not you who’s going to be driving it into your spot at work. Fortunately, Mazda’s lineup has something for everyone, from the sporty Mazda 3 to the family-oriented, subcompact Mazda CX-5. You want to see their face light up with delight on Christmas morning, so make sure it’s a vehicle they can’t wait to drive.

#2 Make Sure They Can Afford It

You know that cars don’t stop costing money when you’ve paid for it. Gas, insurance, and maintenance are all costs to keep in mind, and you should make sure your partner can afford to keep the car. Mazda is one of the most affordably priced cars out there for the design and performance you get. If you want help talking about the right vehicle for your partner, stop by Yorkdale Dufferin Mazda this holiday season.

#3 Consider Paying for a Lease

One of the great things about leasing is that you can reduce your monthly payments by putting down a higher amount when you sign. Whether it’s your partner or your teen, you can get them started with leasing options, and you can always check out our monthly specials for great savings on Mazda leases.

#4 Find a Great Deal

Holiday car shopping is one of the smartest ways to save when you’re on the market for a new Mazda. Dealerships and manufacturers are eager to move units, and at Yorkdale Dufferin Mazda, you’ll find even bigger deals on top of our everyday savings. You can also check out our huge selection of used Mazdas to save even more.
