Depreciation - bodes well

Extracts from ContractHire AndLeasing.com

New data from a study by EurotaxGlass’s has shown that Mazda CX-5 models, including the 2.2 SKYACTIV- D diesel 150ps powered model, will retain 44-46% of their list price at the crucial three years/60,000-mile benchmark.
The Mazda CX-5 marks the debut of Mazda’s SKYACTIV technology which the car maker promises major total cost of ownership savings for fleet operators and significant financial benefits for company car drivers over rival models.
For example, the 2.2-litre SKYACTIV-D diesel 2WD SE-L 150ps is forecasted by EurotaxGlass’s to have a residual value of £10,666 (46%) at three years/60,000 miles, ahead of rivals Nissan Qashqai, Toyota RAV4, and the Ford Kuga, and a full 10 percentage points better than the Hyundai ix35 Style 2.0-litre CRDi 2WD model, which retains a value of £6,908 (36%) over the same period and mileage. In addition depreciation is more than £700 less than on the more expensive equivalent Volkswagen Tiguan meaning the CX-5 is class-leading for this model in depreciation terms too.
Move up the CX-5 range to the 2.2-litre SKYACTIV-D diesel AWD Sport 175ps and it’s forecasted to retain 44% at three years/60,000 miles which again beats rivals Nissan Qashqai, Toyota RAV4, Hyundai ix35 and the Ford Kuga, by up to eight percentage points.
Diesel models are expected to account for up to 75% of corporate sales, particularly due to class-leading CO2 emissions (from 119g/km) and fuel economy up to 61.4mpg (combined cycle).
Meanwhile petrol engine models, powered by a 2.0-litre SKYACTIV-G 165ps engine deliver up to 47.1mpg and CO2 emissions of just 139g/km, are also said to deliver first-class residual values. EurotaxGlass’s forecasts that the entry model 2WD SE-L will have a three-year/60,000-mile residual value of 45%.

That's good for company car drivers but I'll be more interested in the real world economy than the residuals as such.
