Mazda BT-50 (2017) Specs & Price


The facelifted Mazda BT-50 bakkie makes its market introduction this week. Here are the specifications and pricing for this new product.

This generation of the Mazda BT-50 was introduced to the South African market back in 2012. It was marketed as an Active Lifestyle Vehicle, which meant that the BT-50 was aimed at more the leisure end of the market as opposed to the workhorse. What's new for 2017? There's new exterior styling, which includes a new face, redesigned side steps, rear combination lamps and 17-inch aluminium wheels. The cabin 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-dimming mirror and electrical driver seat adjustment.

The Mazda BT-50 double cab range comprises 2.2L 4x2 6MT SLE,  3.2L 4x4 6MT SLE and 3.2L 4x4 6AT SLE as well as new models: a 2.2L 4x2 6MT SLX and 2.2L 4x2 6AT SLE. The facelifted Mazda BT-50 is assembled in Thailand. There are 7 colour finishes: True Red, Aluminum Metallic, Cool White, Jet Black, Deep Crystal Blue, Blue Reflex and Titanium Flash.
