Mazda’s mid-sized SUV has proved a popular hit amongst drivers and car leaders scoring a 5/5 with What Car? Magazine. Taking on the SUV marketplace includes some big hitters such as the Audi Q5, Mercedes GLA and the Land Rover Discovery, as well as more affordable SUVs like the Nissan Qashqai and the Seat Ateca. Against all of these the Mazda CX-5 stands up as a genuine contender. Sleek body work, excellent fuel economy and unbeatable equipment included deliver a really great value for money SUV.
Available in petrol and diesel engines and automatic and manual transmission, the CX-5 handles exceptionally well and provides plenty of grip regardless of terrain. A smooth but firm ride ensures a comfortable driving experience with the CX-5 rarely sounding like it’s breaking a sweat when under power.

If that isn’t enough a respectable 47.4MPG fuel economy means that despite its size, the Mazda CX-5 remains a very fuel and cost efficiently vehicle.
