Mazda Motor Corporation has announced that production of the refreshed Mazda BT-50 utility has commenced at the company’s manufacturing plant in Thailand.
Mazda plans to start introducing the updated model from the second half of 2015, starting with Thailand and Australia.
The 2016 Mazda BT-50 defied the conventional image of the pickup truck when the current model was introduced in 2011 as an “active lifestyle vehicle” with modern and refined styling.
Since then it has gained great popularity thanks to its excellent driving performance and highly functional interior and cargo space which make it ideal for both personal and business use.
Customers with active lifestyles have found that the Mazda BT-50 suits their needs for a wide variety of purposes, from transporting the family to facilitating leisure activities.
The 2016 Mazda BT-50 maintains the versatile practicality and exhilarating driving performance of the current model but the design has been updated to give it a sportier and more powerful presence than ever before.
The new styling incorporates a newly designed front face, rear combination lamps and aluminium wheels.
In addition, the interior has also been refined to give a higher-quality feel, and for the first time a rear-view camera has been added to the list of safety equipment available on the 2016 Mazda BT-50.
The powertrain and body-type line-up is unchanged from the previous model.
