The refined 2017 BT-50 Facelift has expressive styling, high-quality interior and outstanding driving dynamics that reflect Mazda’s DNA.
The Mazda BT-50, first introduced to the South African market in 2012, was launched as an “Active Lifestyle Vehicle” with modern and refined styling that defied the conventional work-horse image of a bakkie. The intent was to not only attract traditional business users but to extend the appeal to a wide range of customers, including families and pleasure-seekers.
Now in 2017, the Mazda BT-50 Facelift is being introduced to further cater to these recreational buyers who enjoy both the outdoor and urban lifestyle.
The facelifted Mazda BT-50 maintains the versatile practicality and exhilarating driving performance of the current model whilst updating the design gives it a sportier and more powerful presence than ever before. New exterior styling incorporates a newly designed front face, redesigned side steps, rear combination lamps and 17-inch aluminium wheels. The interior has also been refined to give a higher-quality feel with the addition of Bluetooth, Steering Wheel Switches and Cruise Control from the SLX model. The SLE model picks up new features that include a rear-view camera, an auto diming mirror and electrical driver seat adjustment.
The BT-50 Double Cab will be available in the following derivatives: 2.2L 4×2 6MT SLE, 3.2L 4×4 6MT SLE and 3.2L 4×4 6AT SLE as well as new model derivatives 2.2L 4×2 6MT SLX and 2.2L 4×2 6AT SLE. Produced and fully imported from the Auto Alliance (Thailand) Co., Ltd. (AAT), plant in Thailand, the facelift offers seven exterior colour options; True Red, Aluminum Metallic, Cool White, Jet Black, Deep Crystal Blue, Blue Reflex and Titanium Flash.
The refined BT-50 has expressive styling, high-quality interior and outstanding driving dynamics that reflect Mazda’s DNA.
The BT-50 Mazda Care plan is now aligned with that of Mazda passenger vehicles; with a 3-year unlimited kilometre factory warranty, 3-year service plan and 3-year roadside assistance.
