Great ute, electronics need work.BT-50 4x4 3.0L XTR (2020-2023)
Overall, I am very happy with the new auto BT I bought in December 2022. Traded in the 2014 manual XTR. I find it surprising that dealers / brands (not just Mazda) can sell vehicles allegedly rated above 750kg towing without including a brake controller. Like others commenting here, the autonomous braking system has locked me up in traffic because a car was turning left off my left quarter - not even in front of me! The "BRAKE" warning has come up when a hawk has swooped in front of the car. Yes, I turn the lane departure off, too. Truck tracks... Read more fool it and it wants to send me into oncoming traffic! The Bluetooth system forgets my phone and playing music via Bluetooth lasts about 20 minutes and I have to disconnect and reconnect. It is the third decade of the 21st Century, right? Not good. I am hoping that Mazda read these posts and a software update is in the wind.
Good tow vehicleBT-50 4x4 3.0L XTR (2020-2023)
Interior of GT is very good, I like the seating in particular. It effortlessly tows to its maximum. Very good economy while towing. I don't like the lane keeping and you cannot turn it off. Dealer has offered to permanently disable it. Adaptive cruise control is great. Some engine noise when accelerating but pleasingly quiet when cruising.Show details
Love our BT50BT-50 4x4 3.0L XTR (2020-2023)
We've now owned our 2021 BT50 for a year and done 23,000km including 8,000 towing a van and the rest involving normal running around and city driving. In this time the car has been faultless and very capable at everything. It's great on fuel, comfortable, roomy, has decent power and tows our van or boat effortlessly. Mazda after sales support and servicing is excellent. A lot of people seem to mention the safety stuff, which can take a few drives to get used to, but you can adjust all the settings in the menu to lessen their input and Mazda now do an update which makes it even less sensitive if preferred.
After a year I think it's a fantastic car, we've looked after it, the paint still shines and we still love it.

Great car for all purposeBT-50 4x4 3.0L XTR (2020-2023)
We got the Mazda BT-50 because we needed a car that served all purposes with comfort, and this one definitely meets the criteria - 4wd'ing, beach driving, city driving, long distance driving and suburban driving. My husband and son both surf and occasionally go on boys camping weekends, so the ute we selected had an important criteria to meet.
We have the 3.2L turbo-diesel version, and it's really good on fuel - on average, we get about 1000km out of a full tank. We used to have a Navara D22 but the BT-50 is 100 X better - it has a bit of oo... Read moremph when accelerating, so you don't actually feel like you're driving a truck, it's pretty comfortable inside and you don't feel every bump you go over. For a ute, technology ticks a lot of boxes - it has apple car play (which is a MUST HAVE feature in any car we buy now), reverse camera (because everyone needs one on a ute, lets be honest) and parking sensors. As mentioned, we have a son and he's 6 1/2 so he still sits in a car seat - one thing we wanted in a ute was the car seat anchor already provided in the ute and I can confirm, the Mazda BT-50 has this! hallelulah!! Overall, we have had the car for almost 18 months, we've only serviced it twice (first 1500km free and the second was standard) and we still love it just as much as the day we picked it up. It doesn't feel like you're driving a truck, it's extremely comfortable, good on fuel, suits all driving terrain and purpose and is relevant with technology that you would find in cars. Absolutely we recommend this car to anyone and everyone, bachelors, couples, families or the older generation who is road tripping.
