Small car fuel efficiency and large car pulling power make a compelling case for new compact softroader.
There is no doubt the diesel version of Mazda’s all-new CX-5 compact SUV has been much anticipated. The petrol CX-5, which arrived first, has been lauded widely except for a lack of pulling power from its 2.0-litre engine.
With a healthy 420Nm of torque, the 2.2-litre turbo-diesel certainly looks to have that problem licked. Could it be the best compact SUV going around?
