What used Mazda CX-5 estate will I get for my budget?
Somewhere between £17,000 and £18,000 will buy you a second-generation CX-5, at the time of writing. This will get you a 2017 car with an average mileage for the year and a full service history bought from an independent dealer. Up the ante to between £19,000 and £23,000 and you’ll find later cars from franchised dealers with low to average mileages.
How much does it cost to run a Mazda CX-5 estate?
Fuel economy and CO2 emissions figures aren’t as dramatically different for the cars in the CX-5’s range as you might expect. The 2.0-litre petrol can claim an average consumption figure of 44.1mpg, equating to a CO2 figure of 149g/km, where the lower powered 2.2 diesel claims 56.5mpg and 132g/km and the higher powered unit 52.3mpg and 142g/km. Cars registered after April 2017 will all pay the same flat rate annual car tax bill.
Insurance groups are reasonable and range from 16 to 22.
Mazda does offer fixed-price maintenance; this will give you a price menu of how much common maintenance operations such as changing the brake discs or pads are, which you can then use to compare prices with independant garages in your area. Mazda also offers extended servicing plans to cater for different ownership and usage requirements, and the CX-5 should be about average for the class in terms of servicing costs.
