The Mazda5 drives just like the Mazda6; nimble yet refined. The positive steering feel and sports-car-like gear lever make it fun. Yet the large sliding side doors and flexible seats make it easy to load anything from toddlers to bicycles too.
Mazda interiors can be drab, which may put you off. Retail prices can also be high compared to similar alternatives. However, reliability and running costs are appealing. Plus few vehicles offer such practicality with a good driving experience.
The petrol Mazda 5 models are cheaper than the diesel cars. On average they will set you back £1200 less at 2 years old. The petrol engine suits the car much better, is refined, punchy and really enables you to exploit the handling.
Mazda offers it's usual spec overkill with the 5 - just go for TS2 trim and be done with it.
Pay £7000 for a 4 year old petrol Mazda 5 in TS-2 spec with less than 40,000 on the clock.
Buy at 4 years. Avoid the big drop at 3 years and hold on. Depreciation looks gentle from there on in.
Used Car Expert recommends that you try to buy after a big drop in depreciation and before the next one, so with the current Mazda 5 you would aim to buy a 3 year old and sell it before it is 5 years old.
Diesel Mazda 5 cars lose most over the first year (from new to 1 year old), so that is the best ‘nearly new’ buy in terms of car for money.
Petrol Mazda 5 cars lose least between years 1 and 3, so this is the best buy if you want to keep the car for a while.
Petrol Mazda 5 cars lose least between years 2 and 4, so that is the best buy on older cars.
