Mazda Southern Africa is pleased to announce the local launch of the all-new Mazda BT-50, the third model in a new generation of Mazda vehicles. The all-new Mazda BT-50 is fully redesigned from the ground up. The All-New BT-50 was launched internationally in June 2020 and the units sold in South Africa will be produced in Thailand.
As an evolution of Mazda’s Kodo design, it gives life to a new form of elegance rooted in Japanese aesthetics. Mazda’s Kodo, which is the ‘Soul of Motion’ design language, is evident right from the front of the vehicle with the prominent front grille, and the three-dimensional signature wing that extends out towards the side.
The design of the headlights is distinct and sharp, taking in cues from Mazda’s SUV range. From the first glance, the BT-50 expresses unique power, toughness and utilitarian functionality, ready for adventure and built for working purposes. It would also be appealing to lifestyle customers with its unique design.
The Mazda BT-50 isn’t all about utility, but bold evolution, designed with the goal of being a vehicle that customers can take pride in owning. The interior cabin space has been carefully crafted to express Mazda’s commitment to human centric design. Everything from the dashboard, steering wheel, seats and center console has been redesigned to ensure that drivers feel connected to their vehicle and as comfortable as they can be.
The redifined, smooth interior aims for a level of comfort on par with a luxury SUV, by combining sleek and modern elegance with strong functionality. As with all Mazda models, the new BT-50 comes standard with a generous level of features, including MZD Connect Infotainment System with a seven- or nine-inch display screen, Apple Carplay™ and Android Auto™, reverse cam-era, parking sensors, LED headlamps, hill launch assist, hill descent control, trailer sway mitigation, seven airbags, cruise control to name a few.
And with its bold stance, the new BT-50 will stand ready and proud on the show-room floor next to its Mazda siblings. The model line-up consists of three derivatives, namely Active, Dynamic and Individual. Mazda aligned the new BT-50 with that of its passenger car range.
The Active model features a new 1.9-litre diesel engine producing 110kW of power and 350Nm of torque and is either coupled to a automatic or manual gearbox. The Dynamic and Individual models feature the new 3.0-litre power unit that produces 140kW of power and 450Nm of torque and comes with a six-speed automatic gear-box.
The Individual model is available with the 4×4 drive train, whereas all the other models are available in the 4×2 drive train. Mazda is proud to announce that the all-new BT-50 received a five star for the ANCAP Safety rating in 2020, issued by the Australasian New Car Assessment Program.
The BT-50 will come standard with a three-year unlimited kilometer Mazda service plan, a three-year unlimited kilometer Mazda Warranty and a three-year unlimited roadside assistance offer. For more information, contact your nearest Mazda Dealer or visit the Mazda web-site on https://www.mazda.co.za
