The Mazda BT-50 is well-known throughout Australia as a tough vehicle, able to take on almost any task. Its powerful turbo diesel engine and impressive carrying capacity make it a reliable workhorse. However, there’s much more to the Mazda BT-50 than this.
Built with style and sophistication, the Mazda BT-50 challenges the idea that a ute’s appearance is irrelevant. With the option of a Single, Freestyle or Dual cab, the Mazda BT-50 proves that it can also be a spacious and flexible family vehicle for daily routine, or adventurous getaways. Packed with the latest technology, and having an extensive range of extras available, the Mazda BT-50 is a high value vehicle, with an attractive driveaway price.
Here are the top five reasons why you should consider the Mazda BT-50 as your next vehicle.
1. Multi-purpose: performs well for work & play
Australian families are increasingly turning to vehicles that can accommodate a flexible lifestyle. The Mazda BT-50 performs well as a work vehicle, but the dual cab models are equally competent as family vehicles.
The dual cab models have plenty of room in the back seats to comfortably sit adults or children, and the square rear doors make putting in booster seats easy. Roomy and comfortable, the BT-50 feels almost like an SUV inside.
The Mazda BT-50 has a superior carrying capacity than the largest SUVs on the market. With a payload of up to 1,389kg, the Mazda BT-50 is perfect for loading up with work equipment or holiday gear.
Additional flexibility comes with a generous towing capacity of up to 3.5 tonnes for models fitted with a Mazda Genuine Towing Kit. Whether you need to tow a trailer for work, or a caravan for the family road-trip, the Mazda BT-50 is more than capable.
2. A Ute with style & sophistication
Utes aren’t typically considered the most good looking vehicles out there, but with a classy exterior and refined interior, the Mazda BT-50 proves that they can be handsome and head-turning. Whether you’re interested in the Dual, Freestyle or Single Cab, each model of the BT-50 exudes a rugged and commanding presence.
The front of the Mazda BT-50 has a design unique to Australia that is both appealing and practical. A chromed grill and strong lower lip give the vehicle a powerful presence, while not compromising on aerodynamics, safety or efficiency.
The colours available for the BT-50 are sophisticated and strong, including Aluminium Metallic, Titanium, Deep Crystal Blue, Cool White, Blue Reflex and Jet Black.
The interior of the Mazda BT-50 feels spacious and sophisticated. With black cloth or leather trim options, and no cheap-looking plastics to be seen, the Mazda BT-50 proves practicality doesn’t have to mean a compromise on aesthetics.
3. The latest tech & safety features
The Mazda BT-50 is decked out with the latest technology to keep you connected, and the highest quality safety features to keep you safe on the road.
Whether you need to do business in the car or stay connected with friends and family, the Mazda BT-50 makes it possible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. A 7-inch infotainment screen, and a reverse camera come standard in every model.
Higher grades include an integrated satellite navigation system and cruise control that make long drives a breeze. An eight-way power front driver’s seat, quality Alpine sound system and rear-view mirror auto dimming are other features which make for a pleasurable driving experience in the Mazda BT-50.
Built with high tensile steel throughout, the Mazda BT-50 is a tough vehicle. In addition, a wishbone front and leaf rear suspension allow for excellent handling without compromising on durability. With a five star ANCAP safety rating, the BT-50 is a reliable vehicle you can count on, whether you’re at work, towing a load or taking the family out.
