Refreshed 2016 Mazda BT-50 spied
A single spy-shot of the 2016 Mazda BT-50 has appeared on Thailand-based forums, with the front-end of the ute copping the most change.
IF THIS SPY SHOT IS anything to go by then the 2016 Mazda BT-50 will follow in the footsteps of recently refreshed Mazda models and has copped the KODO design treatment. The current BT-50 has been criticised for its love it, or hate it design and this new looks is clearly an attempt to ‘toughen’ the look of the BT-50.
Gone are the pulled-back headlight, replaced by smaller, squarer-set units with a smaller grille with chrome accent and a centrally-mounted badge. Nothing is known about the interior, although given the outside of the car looks more like the passenger models, it’s likely the 2016 BT-50 will get the Mazda MZD Connect infotainment system.
Mazda isn’t saying anything about the new BT-50, but we know full well that the Mazda ute shares its chassis with the Ford Ranger which will be released in the coming months. Engines are likely to carry over from before.
Below is a current Mazda BT-50 for comparison.
