  1. Red BT-50 is the old model, front and rear lights have definitely changed, suspect interior shots are of the old model also.

    1. Hi Jack, the interior shots apparently come from the reveal in Thailand… And, yes, the Red car in the pics is the old model for comparative reasons. Will add a caption to it. Cheers.

      1. I have got several interior images off the Mazda Thailand website however unfortunately can’t upload them. Worth a look if you are interested (takes a bit of guess work to navigate the page as its all in Thai). A little disappointing to be honest it’s barely an update can’t see sales improving much.

          1. Lightweight update, well below the hype Mazda bosses where talking about 12mths ago. Where could we wrong – price? Maybe they price as per a Triton.
