What alternatives should I consider to a used Mazda CX-5 estate?

The Nissan Qashqai may not be as spacious as the Mazda CX-5, but nor is it as expensive. Throw in the fact that it is good to drive, very quiet and doesn’t cost much to run and it is arguably the CX-5’s closest rival, with the related Renault Kadjar not far behind.

Other options worth considering include the Ford Kuga for something that is more fun to drive, the Honda CR-V if space and a versatile interior are your priorities and the Kia Sportage if you value a long warranty over driving enjoyment.
