Which used Mazda CX-5 estate should I buy?

Engine

As far as engines go, the 2.2-litre diesel in 148bhp tune suits the car well, is cheap to tax and is available with two or four-wheel drive, making it the obvious choice. If you prefer a petrol engine, the good news is that the CX-5 is one of the more economical options around.

Specification

We don't see much need in going beyond the regular SE L Nav model, because it comes with all the equipment you'd want and has a more supple ride than some of the higher trim levels such as Sport, which come with larger wheels. 

Our favourite Mazda CX-5 2.2 Skyactiv-D 150 SE L Nav
