Thrifty motoring in Mazda CX-5 diesel

If you are in the market for a mid-size sport utility vehicle and have decided a Mazda CX-5 is the wagon for you, then you’ll still have a difficult decision to make.
 
I’ve made no secret in recent evaluations about the quality of product that is coming out of Mazda factories at the moment, and the CX-5 is just another example of a good car made better. The choice between diesel or petrol power in that model is certainly something that I’d have to agonise over.
