The new Mazda BT-50 is built on the same platform as the new Isuzu D-MAX and it shares many features including the same 140kW/450Nm 3.0-litre four-cylinder engine and choice of six-speed manual or six-speed auto transmissions. The BT-50 also shares many of the same safety features as the D-MAX, which recently became the first 4X4 on the market to feature a centre airbag, helping it to recently score a five-star ANCAP rating, which the Mazda BT-50 will no doubt also achieve.
