Mazda lobs single and Freestyle-cab BT-50s

Mazda adds work-minded single and Freestyle-cab variants to BT-50 range

2 Nov 2020


MAZDA Australia has wasted no time in bolstering its all-new BT-50 line-up, this week revealing the pricing of its tradie and fleet-minded single and Freestyle-cab variants with both hitting the market from $36,550 and $40,050 plus on-roads respectively.


One important factor to note however is the BT-50 Single and Freestyle cabs’ recommended retail prices do not include a genuine Mazda alloy tray – you will need to fork out an extra $2470 (Single) and $2300 (Freestyle) for that luxury, however the extra outlay does include fitting.


Available solely in the XT trim level, there are only three major choices prospective customers are faced with when speccing their new work-oriented BT-50; cab style, drive type and transmission.


At the bottom of the range, the 4x2s come exclusively with a six-speed automatic transmission while the 4x4s are available with the choice of either manual (six-speed) or automatic as per the 4x4 dual-cab range.


Unsurprisingly the automatics are priced upstream of the manuals, carrying a $2500 premium across the 4x4 range which kicks off from $41,550 for the single-Cab manual and tops out at $47,550 for the Freestyle-Cab (extra-cab) automatic.


According to Mazda, the auto-only situation for the 4x2 variants is the result of factory supply and availabilities during the “initial planning phase”.


“We will continue to monitor the market and take on dealer and customer feedback on this topic, and make any announcements in due course,” a spokesperson told GoAuto.


Just like in the dual-cab range, all variants are powered by an Isuzu-sourced 3.0-litre turbo-diesel four-cylinder engine developing 140kW of power and 450Nm of torque.


Braked towing capacity is rated at 3500kg across the range while fuel economy is pegged at a claimed 8.0 litres per 100km on the combined cycle.


Standard equipment meanwhile consists of 17-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, power adjustable wing mirrors, black cloth upholstery, air-conditioning, power windows, carpet floor covering, cruise control (automatics score an adaptive system), 7.0-inch infotainment touchscreen, Apple Carplay/Android Auto, Bluetooth, DAB+ digital radio and a reversing camera.


Safety tech is generous too with all BT-50s boasting a five-star ANCAP safety rating thanks to eight airbags, attention assist, autonomous emergency braking, blind spot monitoring, emergency lane keeping assist, emergency stop signal, automatic high beam, hill descent control, hill launch assist, lane departure warning, lane departure prevention, lane-keep assist for automatics, rear cross-traffic alert, rollover protection, secondary collision reduction, speed assist system, traction control and turn assist.


According to Mazda Australia managing director Vinesh Bhindi, the new variants maintain the brand’s philosophy of offering greater customer choice.


“For brand-new Mazda BT-50, the new single-cab and Freestyle-cab models complement the impressive dual-cab model range that we released in September,” he said.


“With a similarly wide array of Mazda genuine accessories available, the BT-50 range can genuinely be tailored to suit the customer’s lifestyle.”


Mazda has sold 2060 BT-50 4x2s and 5343 4x4s so far this year ending September, accounting for 11.1 and 5.0 per cent of their respective segments.
