What alternatives should I consider to a used Mazda CX-5 estate?
The BMW X1 is a fraction shorter than the CX-5 but it’s a classy and premium-badged SUV that the Mazda has firmly in its sights. The X1 is also spacious, practical, and has a high-quality interior. It’s good to drive, too, with fine handling, and it has a great infotainment system.
The Volkswagen Tiguan is also a little smaller than the CX-5, but it’s almost as spacious inside. It’s also practical, good to drive and comes with plenty of kit as standard. Countered against that the diesels can be a little gruff.
