    Default New BT50 launching in July.

    New BT50 launching next month.

    https://www.carmag.co.za/news/new-ma...nge-announced/

    I bet a lot of Isuzu fans are going to be test driving the new "D-MAX" when this launches

    Jokes aside. I actually like the Mazda styling and the dash clearly looks Mazda.

    Wish Mazda success with this model in a very tough market!

    It looks much better than the T6 based BT50 and even the one before that.

    The same old marketing glitches!

    1) Only in double cab guise......why not others?
    2) The 1.9 not available in 4x4?. It would have been a model for me to consider as any of the top of the range bakkies' are becoming way too expensive.

    3 year warranty. I think the current Isuzus come with 5 years?

    Its certainly the best looking mazda bakkie yet,but for some reason the front end does not flow well with the rest of the bakkie and to me it looks odd..I dont like the look..The interior looks really good though

    Beautiful bakkie, but disappointingly only the full spec in 4x4!

    Question:

    Is the Mazda's bodywork and interior also taken from Isuzu or only the drivetrain?

    Body and interior is also Isuzu. The Mazda did get a bit of a nose and badge job though. As far as I know the Mazda will also not sell low spec entry level bakkies.

    I went and had a quick look at one. I like it. Seats are wide and comfortable, interior is great. Room in the back is also good, I could easily sit in the back with space in front of my knees and enough space underneath the front seats for my feet. With the move away from the display on top of the dash idea the forward view is unobstructed.

    Mooi bakkie, like dit!!

    Nog altyd van die Mazda's se afwerking gehou, hulle voel vir my baie stewiger as hulle ewekniee (die Fords).
