Frankfurt Motor Show: Mazda CX-5

Mark Nichol


Mazda has finally cottoned on to the Nissan Qashqai and created a rival. Ladies and gentlemen of a family persuasion, here's the CX-5 crossover.

The Frankfurt debutant is basically a slightly smaller CX-7 – that's the sporty SUV that we all like but hardly anybody buys because the silly sausages at Mazda let it plough on without a diesel until it was too late for anybody to care.
