Review

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 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

On top of SE-L you get 19in alloys, a reversing camera, electric tailgate, leather seats, which are electrically adjustable and heated in the front, a heated steering wheel, a head-up display, keyless entry and a 10-speaker Bose sound system. Definitely worth looking at if your budget can stretch to it.

The pick of the diesels. It pulls hard from 1000rpm all the way to the red line, so it actually feels more like a turbocharged petrol than a diesel. Comes with a six-speed manual gearbox as standard and in this guise offers the best fuel economy in the lineup. You can have an auto 'box if you prefer.
