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