What used Mazda CX-5 estate will I get for my budget?
A second-generation CX-5 will set you back at least £19,000 at the time of writing. This will get you a 2017 car with an average number of miles for the year and a full service history. Up the ante to between £20,000 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 aren’t as dramatically different across the CX-5 range as you might expect. The 2.0-litre petrol claims an official (NEDC) average consumption figure of 44.1mpg, equating to a CO2 figure of 149g/km, while the lower-powered 2.2-litre diesel gets 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 road tax of £140.
Many Mazda dealerships 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 that you can then use to compare prices with those of independent 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. Insurance costs should also be reasonable.
