    About the Mazda BT-50

    The Mazda BT-50 has entered 2024 unchanged, though there have been minor price increases of between $150 and $685 – these follow price increases of between $1520 and $2220 in 2023.

    Last year, Mazda Australia dropped manual versions of GT, SP and Thunder variants while adding tyre pressure monitoring as standard to all variants from the XTR and up. It also introduced new ‘Enhancement Packs’ for the SP and Thunder, bundling various options.

    The BT-50 is based on the Isuzu D-Max, though it’s not as popular. Mazda sold 17,526 examples last year, still good enough to make it Australia’s 13th best-selling car but putting it behind the D-Max’s 31,202 tally and podium finish.

    It nevertheless outsold the Mitsubishi Triton (16,641 sales) and Nissan Navara (8499 sales).

    Interior

    Photos and Images of the Mazda BT-50 Interior

    The BT-50 has a slightly different upper dash to the D-Max it’s based on, but these two vehicles’ interiors are otherwise essentially the same.

    The rocker switches for the climate control look and feel solid and are satisfyingly damped, while the black headliner is nicer than the typical mouse-fur greys you’ll find in this segment.

    But lesser BT-50s foibles remain, like a shelf at the base of the centre stack that isn’t rubberised, some mismatched plastics on the doors, and extensive use of piano black trim – including on the doors and centre console where it’s destined to get scratched.

    Storage up front is good, with a fairly spacious centre console bin, dual glove boxes, and bottle holders that can fit 1L bottles. There are two cupholders in the centre console, one squared-off and one round – perfect for when you’re an Ice Break or Dare type of person and your partner or offsider prefers a carton of M.

    Exterior

    Photos and Images of the Mazda BT-50 Exterior

    It’s based on the Isuzu D-Max, but its frontend styling owes more to Mazda crossovers like the CX-9. While the likes of the Nissan Navara Pro-4X Warrior and Toyota HiLux Rogue go for a more butch look, the BT-50 looks a little more, dare we say, elegant.

    The 2024 BT-50 will also become the latest Mazda to gain a sporty-looking SP variant in 3.0-litre form. The new SP slots above the GT, and features a range of aesthetic tweaks.

    These include a black grille and black 18-inch alloy wheels, as well as ‘Driftwood’ leather and black synthetic suede upholstery in the cabin.

    Other black touches include the exterior mirrors, door handles, manual roller tonneau cover, sail-plane sport bar and wheel flares.

    It’ll be available only as a 4×4 dual-cab pickup with the 3.0-litre turbo-diesel, though like the GT it’ll offer a choice of six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmissions.

    How it Drives

    Our expert take on Mazda BT-50 drivability?

    The 2024 Mazda BT-50 XS comes with a 1.9-litre turbo-diesel four-cylinder engine with 110kW of power and 350Nm of torque, mated with a six-speed automatic transmission.

    Mazda BT-50 Safety Rating

    ANCAP Safety Rating Australia

    The Mazda BT-50 wears a five-star ANCAP safety rating with a 2020 date stamp, based on tests conducted on the related Isuzu D-Max. This rating applies to all variants bar the recently-launched BT-50 Thunder.

    Against 2020 criteria, category scores included 83 per cent for adult occupant protection, 89 per cent for child occupant protection, 67 per cent for vulnerable road user protection and 84 per cent for safety assist.

    It’s worth noting the BT-50’s unique front end compared to its Isuzu twin garnered a slightly weaker pedestrian protection score (from 69 per cent).

    All Mazda BT-50 models come standard with the following safety features:

    • Autonomous emergency braking
    • Blind-spot monitoring
    • Lane-departure warning
    • Rear cross-traffic alert
    • Turn assist
    • Driver attention monitoring
    • Front, front-side and curtain airbags
    • Driver’s knee airbag
    • Front-centre airbag

    Automatic models also feature lane-keep assist and adaptive cruise control.

    • Nitrocharger suspension with updated springs and up to a two-inch lift for off-roading
    • 18-inch wheels
    • Lightforce LED light bar with 1 lux of illumination at up to a 569m distance
    • SP Pro decals across the bottom of the doors.

    Mazda says it has extensively tested the lift kit to ensure it doesn’t impact any safety systems including its anti-lock brakes and electronic stability control.

    The Thunder Pro pack, available only on the Thunder, costs $9046 and adds:

    • ADR-approved single hoop bull bar
    • Lightforce LED light bar
    • Old Man Emu BP-51 suspension – for medium-load use
    • Nitrogen-filed dampers
    • Snorkel
    • Round Lightforce LED driving lights

    Mazda Australia says customers purchasing the Thunder Pro pack will save $500 compared to buying all the accessories individually.

    Other option bundles include the Boss Shadow Pack, Boss Lifestyle Pack, Boss Sports Pack and Boss Touring Pack.

    Mazda BT-50 Warranty

    What is the warranty period and kilometre limit for the Mazda BT-50?

    The Mazda BT-50 is covered by the brand’s five-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty with roadside assistance for the same period.

    Servicing is required every 12 months or 15,000 kilometres, whichever comes first.

    Servicing is required every 12 months or 15,000 kilometres, whichever comes first. Service prices vary depending on the model. For example, the first five services are capped at $394, $401, $531, $476 and $319 in an XS 1.9-litre 4×2 single-cab-chassis, for a total of $2121 over five years.

    In a dual-cab Thunder 3.0-litre 4×4 pickup, however, they’re capped at $449, $416, $713, $531 and $334, for a total of $2443 over five years.

    Mazda BT-50 Infotainment

    What infotainment do you get within the range?

    While there’s wireless Apple CarPlay and a decently sized 9.0-inch screen, the BT-50’s infotainment is blown away by the Ford Ranger and its 10.1- or 12-inch touchscreens with their crisper graphics, quicker response times and more intuitive interface.

    The BT-50 uses the same user interface as the D-Max, and like the Isuzu it features some physical shortcut buttons underneath the display including a dedicated Home button.

    The Mazda’s analogue instruments are a bit more elegant than the Isuzu’s, but the identical information screen between them is too small. Also, unlike most cars, the fuel icon doesn’t point to the side of the vehicle that the filler door is on – a small detail, but an odd one to get wrong.

    Mazda BT-50 Boot Space

    How much luggage or cargo capacity and boot space is there in the Mazda BT-50?

    The BT-50 tray measures 1571mm long1530mm wide (1120mm between the arches) and 490mm deep.

    Mazda BT-50 Fuel Economy

    How much fuel does the Mazda BT-50 use and what are its emissions?

    The new 1.9-litre turbo-diesel engine uses a claimed 7.0L/100km.

    With the 3.0-litre, the 2024 Mazda BT-50 consumes 7.7L/100km on the combined cycle in the automatic-only 4×2 dual cab ute. The same figure applies to the manual 4×4 dual cab ute.

    4×2 dual cab chassis and 4×4 dual cab ute models consume 8.0L/100km when equipped with an automatic transmission.

    All single-cab chassis and Freestyle cab chassis models consume 8.0L/100km.
