Apart from bundling up the cars with standard freebies, car dealers in the UAE are also offering cashbacks, huge discounts, and even a chance to win a new car.
Japanese car manufacturer Mazda is offering cashbacks and a chance to win a Mazda CX-5. Their DSF deal reads; “Save big, win big. Buy any Mazda and get a chance to win a Mazda CX-5”.
That’s not all, according to the sales guy, the new cars come with cashback, zero down payment option, free insurance, service package up to 60,000km and window tinting. “The cashback depends on the models, and could go up to Dh10,000,” the sales agent informed.
