A new specification offering enhanced looks, greater functionality and added customer value has joined the Australia Mazda BT-50 range.
Based on the popular XTR model grade, BT-50 LE gains a host of Mazda Genuine Accessories. These include a single hooped polished alloy bull bar and polished sports bar. There is also a heavy-duty tub liner, which offers protection against dents and scratches.
The variant was locally engineered for the Australian market. This means the bull bar integrates with the safety systems of the vehicle. Intensive R&D and real-world testing confirmed there is no adverse effect on engine or transmission cooling.
A polished stainless-steel sports bar featuring an integrated brake light completes the tough yet elegant exterior.
Standard BT50 equipment includes dual-zone climate control, satellite navigation, advanced keyless entry, reverse camera and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility.
BT-50 LE is available as a dual-cab pick-up 4×4 with a 3.0L turbo-diesel engine paired to a 6-speed automatic transmission, finished in Ingot Silver Metallic paintwork.
Priced from AU$64,295 before on-road costs, the variant represents a $2,500 saving compared to specifying the same accessories separately.
“One of the many strings to the Mazda BT-50’s bow is the sheer breadth of customisation options available through the Mazda Genuine Accessories program, all of which come with a five-year warranty when fitted at delivery,” said Mazda Australia Managing Director, Vinesh Bhindi.
“With the new Mazda BT-50 LE, we’re offering the best of both worlds. An enhanced and individual look, combined with even more added versatility.”
BT-50 LE is on sale now and will appear in showrooms in February.
