If you are looking for a family car then the Mazda CX05 SUV is a great choice. It has large seats in the back and lots of boot space meaning you can easily fit in your food shopping. You can get a slightly older model Mazda CX-5 (2011-2013) for around £8000 depending on mileage.
The CX-s comes with the option of a number of different engines. The petrol models are either a 2.0 litre or a 2.5 and the diesel models are 2.2 litres. They also do a front wheel drive and an all wheel drive model along with manual or automatic. The fuel economy ranges massively depending on what engine type you opt for and gearbox.
Most of the models have Sat Nav and a Bose stereo system giving great quality sound. The Sat Nav is TomTom and will need to be upgraded over time.
There are a number of quirky features on the Mazda CX-5 that can be very useful such as the speed limit warning and the speed camera warning system. These can be turned on and off as you desire.
Mazda bought out the newer CX-5 in 2017 and proved a big hit with families and individuals. The SUV is nippy and also looks quite stylish although some feel that the older versions are becoming a little dated now.
