The CX-5 is one of the best large SUVs you can buy. Why? Well, while it lacks the additional practicality of seven seats – which the Peugeot 5008 comes with as standard – it's well priced, very well equipped, safe and classy inside. The 2.0 petrol in entry-level Centre-Line trim offers the best value for money, but the diesels are well worth a look if you do above average mileage.

If your budget can stretch to it, Exclusive-Line is a great way to get lots of extra luxuries, and Mazda expects this to be the bestselling trim. It includes 19in alloy wheels, a reversing camera, black leather seats, wireless phone-charging, a clear head-up display, a digital driver display, a heated steering wheel and wiper de-ice.

If you’re a private buyer who doesn’t do lots of miles, this is the one for you – it’s also our chosen engine. While it isn’t quite as fast as its rivals, the 163bhp means that there’s ample performance on offer and you’ll never struggle to reach motorway speeds or to overtake slow-moving traffic. It’s fairly efficient, so you won’t spend too much time at the pumps.
