The new Mazda CX-5 will cost from £21,395 and is available to order now ready for delivery in the spring.

Two engines in three power outputs are offered – a 163bhp 2.0-litre Skyactiv petrol and 2.2-litre Skyactiv diesels with either 148bhp or 173bhp. They are available with either two or four-wheel drive.

Customers can choose from four trim levels - SE-L, SE-L Nav, Sport and Sport Nav. Standard equipment on CX-5 SE-L models includes 17-inch alloys, climate control and air conditioning, as well as front and rear parking sensors and tinted windows.

Sport spec adds 19-inch alloy wheels, Bi-Xenon headlights, heated leather seats and a reversing camera.

The most frugal car in the Mazda CX-5 line-up is the 2WD 148bhp 2.2-litre oil-burner. Mated to a six-speed manual gearbox, the CX-5 achieves 61.4mpg and emits 119g/km Co2, which puts the car in the £30 per year road tax band C.

I like them but our neighbour opposite has one so that's a no-no! I did have a look at the 2.2d Sorento before we decided on CR-V #2 and they're quite impressive performance-wise but found rear seat space sacrificed for the 3rd row seating - not good with growing children.

Yeah, the CR-V ain't svelte! I've not been disappointed with the performance but rarely get into situations where it becomes an issue. One reason I quite liked the look at the CX-5 was the much lower weight and benefits that brings. If they can get the quality right then they'll have a sale.

Looked at a Mazda2 1.5 Sport today as a summer Ka replacement, Mrs Bomb likes them and I've always liked them, so we may slowly convert to Mazda.

Seems expensive to me £25K (by the time you add metallic) for an upper-base spec with 150bhp and 4 wheel drive? Strewth its only a Mazda!

I thought the pricing was OK. The version I'd be looking at in a couple of years would be a direct replacement for our i-DTEC 4x4 CR-V ES (not getting the new one as it's beyond ugly) and it's swings & roundabouts on the spec - you lose some bits but gain others.

The boot should be just about big enough at 500l so the promise of a decent steer and much lower running costs would swing it for me.

I was thinking the same as you, but it does seem a fair bit smaller and my experience of Mazda's has been that they are a rather 'tinny' I guess I group them in with Ford, Vauxhall, Renault where as the Honda is more on par with VW.

Hard to judge until we get a chance to get behind the wheel of a new CR-V and the spec is published properly.

Lots of choices by the time I switch!
