The Mazda CX-5 is one of the best large SUVs you can buy. Why? Well, it may not have the additional practicality of seven seats that a Peugeot 5008 comes with as standard, but it's well priced, very well equipped, safe and classy inside. Stick with the 2.0 petrol in entry-level SE-L Nav+ trim for the best value for money, although the diesels are well worth a look if you do above average mileage.

Trim: GT Sport Nav+

The range topping GT Sport Nav+ comes with softer Nappa leather, ventilated front seats and heated rear seats – but is too expensive to recommend.

Engine: 2.0

The sole petrol option is a 2.0-litre (badged Skyactiv-G 165). Unlike nearly every other modern petrol engine, it doesn't benefit from turbocharging, so you need to rev it hard to get the best from it. Mind you, there’s just about enough low-rev oomph to help you make easy, relaxing progress – as long as you aren't in a hurry. Much cheaper than the diesels, which is why it's our pick of the range.
