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.get the best price
Trim: SE-L Nav+
You get a healthy amount of kit even choosing the entry-level SE-L Nav+ model. The highlights include 17in alloy wheels, front and rear parking sensors, adaptive LED headlights, privacy glass, power-folding door mirrors, dual-zone climate control, 40/20/40 split-folding and reclining rear seats. Infotainment includes a 7.0in screen, a DAB radio and Bluetooth, while among the safety features are automatic emergency braking, lane assist, blind spot monitoring and rear cross traffic alert.
The pick of the diesels. It pulls hard from 1100rpm all the way to the redline, so actually feels more like a turbocharged petrol than a diesel. Comes as standard with a six-speed manual gearbox, but you can have an auto 'box and four-wheel drive if you'd prefer.
