Here we’re testing the second-generation Mazda CX-5.

The Japanese car maker says it’s both more refined and more enjoyable to drive than its predecessor, which was a class winner at the Tow Car Awards, so we’re hoping the new CX-5 will prove an able tug.

We’re driving the range-topping 175PS diesel AWD Sport Nav Auto, priced at £33,195.

We know what tow car talent its predecessor has, so we want to know if Mazda has succeeded in making the latest CX-5 better to drive, with and without a caravan in tow.
