Mazda CX-5

The Mazda CX-5 was a definite late-comer to the mid-size SUV party, not arriving until 2012, by which time it was almost beyond fashionably late.

Luckily for Mazda, the CX-5 arrived wearing some seriously stylish looks, backed up by a pair of high-tech engines and road manners that quickly made it the belle of the ball. Mazda's initial effort into the medium SUV market has been a resounding success, quickly stealing the limelight from previously perennial favourites, the Toyota RAV4 and Subaru Forester.

The Mazda CX-5 is available in two and all-wheel drive, with a pair of petrol engines and a uniquely high-revving diesel. Prices start at $28,690 for the CX-5 Maxx (4x2) and swell up to $49,990 for the CX-5 Akera (4x4).
