The Mazda BT-50 ute range has grown to include a new mid-range LE variant, which includes a range of Mazda Genuine Accessories.
It’s on sale now and will be available in showrooms nationwide from February.
It’s based on the XTR and will be available exclusively as a dual-cab pickup in Ingot Silver metallic paint, priced at $64,295 before on-road costs.
That represents a saving of around $2500 over specifying the same accessories separately on an XTR.
The only powertrain available is the 3.0-litre turbo-diesel four-cylinder engine producing 140kW of power and 450Nm of torque, mated with a six-speed automatic transmission.
The added accessories comprise a single hooped polished alloy bull bar, a polished sports bar that includes an integrated brake light, and a heavy-duty tub liner.
They’re covered by the same five-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty as the vehicle itself.
While the ‘LE’ suffix typically denotes a permanent member of the Mazda line-up with more luxury features – see the CX-3 Akari LE, CX-8 Asaki LE and CX-9 Azami LE – in this case it doesn’t include any additional creature comforts over the standard XTR.
Being based on the XTR, the following equipment comes standard:
- LED headlights with auto levelling
- LED front fog lights and daytime running lights
- Side steps
- Power-folding exterior mirrors
- Keyless entry
- Dual-zone climate control
- Leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter
- Rear air vents
- Rear centre armrest
- Cloth upholstery
- 9.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system
- Wired Android Auto
- Wireless Apple CarPlay
- DAB+ digital radio
As with all automatic BT-50 models, there’s also a full suite of safety and driver assist technology which includes:
- Autonomous emergency braking
- Blind-spot monitoring
- Lane-departure warning
- Lane-keep assist
- Rear cross-traffic alert
- Adaptive cruise control with stop/go
- Front, front-side and curtain airbags
- Driver’s knee airbag
- Front-centre airbag
