I have a Mazda CX5--2.2 d auto. 150bhp. Mine is a two wheel drive model (2014) 

GTW 4050kgs

GKW 2050kgs

MPGTW 2000kgs

I tow a Ace Supreme Twinstar TA  weighing in at 1815kgs

I have had the engine Stage 1 remapped so its 184bhp now (ins company notified of course, and an increase of 20p per week in premium) 

 My CX-5 returns around 42.8mpg with automatic gearbox after the remap, before it was around 39mpg with 150bhp.

Has excellent mpg towing the caravan.

Had my car 3.5 years/47,000 miles. Car is a 2009 done 115,000 in total. It had new front pads when I purchased, still on these. I've put one set of rear pads on. I got a reasonably complete history there's no indication that disks have ever been replaced.

 

Much is down to driving style. Many years ago worked in fleet maintenance we had many Reps taking pads out at every service, some managed to take front disks out too.

Long distance runs on motorways should mean the brakes are virtually unused
