Mazda keeps BT-50 pick-up ticking with minor refresh and styling update
27 Apr 2018
THE one-tonne pick-up market is one of the most competitive segments and shows no sign of slowing down following increasing sales over the past decade in Australia.
Despite already having a mid-life update in 2015, Mazda has given the BT-50 pick-up its second refresh since launching in 2011, this time with some light styling changes and equipment upgrades.
Despite not being one of the bigger volume sellers in the class, Mazda is hoping the update can secure about 15,000 total annual sales for the BT-50, which would give it its best-ever sales figure, trumping the 14,504 recorded in 2016.
The update includes a new front bumper and grille and the inclusion of extra kit inside, while under the skin the same Ford Ranger-related underpinnings remain.
Is a light cosmetic update enough to spur the BT-50 beyond 15,000 yearly sales for the first time?
