Pricewatch: Ford Focus C-MAX v Mazda 5

FLEET NewsNet looks at how new cars taken on to a typical fleet might perform over the next three years/60,000 miles.

Using data from used car expert CAP Motor Research, we benchmark two cars against each other to see how they perform over the traditional fleet cycle.

This week, we see how two diesel mini-MPVs – the Ford Focus C-MAX and Mazda’s recently released Mazda5 – compare with each other.
