MAZDA CX-5 2.5
Feels the safest, thanks to an array of advanced safety features, which include a blind spot monitor, Lanekeep Assist and Advanced Smart City Brake Support. The attractive and intuitive infotainment system is the nicest one in this company, too.
The group’s tallest backrests enable this bench to comfortably support occupants up to 1.8m tall, but the high floor protrusion means an awkward sitting position for the middle passenger. Only contender here without a panoramic sunroof.
CX-5’s analogue dials look comparatively ordinary, but the unique head-up display, which helps drivers stay focussed on the road, is definitely a welcomed feature.
