The new Mazda BT-50 is set to arrive in South Africa in 2021, There was a time when describing a bakkie as “handsome” or “striking” could get one banned from braais, but the new BT-50 cuts a fine figure. There are elements of the Mazda’s Kodo design language in the sweeping crease lines that flow from the grille to the side mirrors. In its most luxurious spec, the BT-50 features leather trim, automatic climate control and a 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system. The front seats are comfy and supportive, the steering column is reach- and rake adjustable and, to Mazda’s credit, the finishes feel substantial and the controls well-weighted. Hot on the heels of its nearly identical sibling, the 2021 Mazda BT-50 will be coming soon, with the brand hoping to capitalise on what is undoubtedly a high-quality platform. You also get reasonable leg and headroom, separate ventilation outlets, a fast-charging USB port, a fold-out armrest, 3 adjustable headrests, seat pockets and a bottle holder in each of the rear doors. The seat can also tumble forward in a 60:40 split if you’d like more luggage. In conclusion, the 2021 Mazda BT-50 is looking more likely to be a great addition to the Mazda brand, coming soon to CMH Mazda Durban.
