Which used Mazda CX-5 estate should I buy?

At launch, the CX-5 was offered in SE L and Sport trims, both of which were well equipped. The SE L features dual-zone climate control, front and rear parking sensors, cruise control and 17in alloy wheels.

Sport models add 19in wheels, an electrically adjustable driver’s seat, a reversing camera and a more powerful Bose stereo.

SE L Nav and Sport Nav models are available with sat-nav included.

SE L Lux models were introduced in 2013 and included a sunroof and heated leather seats.

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.
