UPDATED: New Mazda BT-50 gets a more muscular and rugged look

MAZDA Australia has revealed the tough new look for its BT-50 ute, set to go on sale in October, with a comprehensive list of advanced features, blended with sleek and bold styling and rugged capability, all designed to the highest safety standards.

Mazda has fused its attractive Kodo design language with the bold, muscular proportions a ute demands to convey a sense of toughness and powerful movement, even standing still.

The BT-50 adopts a distinctive Mazda face to its commanding front grille, with sharp, deep sculpted headlamps. A strong rear view mirror presence is amplified with a sense of width created by the use of low outboard parking lamps.

A strong shoulder line running into the tail lamps and sculpted door design complements newly developed body colours, including Gunblue Mica and Concrete Grey Mica, engineered to enhance the BT-50’s rugged, muscular exterior.

Inside, Mazda’s commitment to human-centric design is as prominent as ever, with comfortable and supportive seats that wrap around the body positioned in a wide, spacious cabin environment.

It benefits from the soft-touch horizontal layout of the instrument panel, extending from door-to-door, further amplifying the sense of width and space. The BT-50 is designed for ease-of-use and to match driver needs as well.

Its telescopic steering column makes it easy to find the perfect driving position, and a large touchscreen infotainment system comes complete with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Developed in partnership with Isuzu Motor Limited, the new BT-50 boasts the renowned capability and reliability the Isuzu brand enjoys in the light commercial segment, with the striking design and leading safety credentials available on the rest of the Mazda range.

The BT-50 also blends rugged off-road performance with refined on-road driving, utilising a 3.0-litre diesel engine, packing 140kW power and 450Nm torque. With a reduced body weight and more frugal engine, it ensures a significant improvement in fuel economy.

Capability and versatility for a variety of tasks are ensured too, with 3,500kg towing capacity and more than 1,000kg payload. Best in class safety also features on the BT-50, including adaptive cruise control, and autonomous emergency braking.

Lane keep assist, blind spot monitoring and rear cross traffic alert also feature as standard equipment. Scheduled to go on sale in Australia in October 2020, customers can register their interest in the 2021 Mazda BT-50 now at mazda.com.au/something-huge
