It is: Five-seater sporty es­tate with 4x4 drive sold in a sin­gle diesel-en­gined model with man­ual gears and a high spec­i­fi­ca­tion which brings top-end hi-fi au­dio, leather seats, big wheels etc. It costs: £26,550. Size: 185 inches long (4.7m).

Why? Mazda’s “zoom” styling and 4x4 all weather abil­ity.

Why not? Thirsty. Ford’s newly re­vised front-drive SMax is com­pelling, as is BMW’s (smaller) new X1 which as a fam­ily car with ei­ther front or 4x4 drive, is go­ing to sell well.
