What used Mazda 5 MPV will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Mazda 5 MPV?

You'll hardly have to remortgage your house to arrange for insurance cover for your Mazda 5. Even if you treat yourself to a top-spec Sport, you'll still be paying no more than a group 8 premium. Stick with the less flash TS and TS2 versions and insurance costs will be no more than group 6.

There's little to split the two petrol engines when it comes to fuel economy and running costs. The 1.8-litre has a claimed 35.7mpg and the 2.0-litre returns 34.4mpg. Opt for a diesel and you'll see a 10mpg improvement on that figure, with 44.8mpg for the lesser unit and 44.9mpg for the more powerful 141bhp engine.

Both diesels will be slightly pricier to buy and to service than the petrol-powered versions. However, Mazda repair bills sit at the lower end of the class average.
