Mazda CX-5 2019 Right hand cornering shot

4. Mazda CX-5

The 2.0-litre petrol engine in the Mazda CX-5 is strong, refined and impressively efficient while not sacrificing pace. Plus, the car is well equipped, fun to drive and extremely practical – as long as you need only five seats. Even some road noise can’t detract from its overall desirability.

Pick of the range: 2.0 SE Nav+

The X3 is a great choice if you're looking for a prestige SUV with five seats. Drivers will like its strong engine range and top-notch handling, while passengers can enjoy the luxurious and spacious interior. You also get BMW's iDrive infotainment system as standard, which is a real bonus because it's among the best around.

Pick of the range: xDrive20d SE

Beautifully made and quiet as a mouse, the latest Q5 is a very luxurious choice, particularly if you go for the optional air suspension, which turns it into one of the smoothest-riding cars available – in any class.

Pick of the range: 40 TDI Sport
