With its all-new BT-50 set for release later this year, Mazda has revealed new details of its blue-singlet workhorse. This time, it's all about space: inside and out.
In Dual-Cab form, the 2012 BT-50 comes with a wheelbase 220mm longer than its 4x4 Dual-Cab predecessor. In the cabin, the back seats benefit most, with rear legroom increasing by 55mm.
Up front, headroom improves by 16mm, and shoulder room has increased by 30mm. Mazda hasn't released all the figures yet, but the Japanese carmaker promises a wider cabin for the all-new BT-50, improving shoulder room.
Developed alongside the all-new Ford Ranger, the 2012 BT-50 shares the same improved cargo capacity. In Dual-Cab form, the cargo tray measures 1549mm wide and 1560mm wide.
With higher sides, the cargo tray of the 2012 BT-50 Dual-Cab offers 1214 litres of rear carrying space - a 178 litre increase over the current model.
