Driving to Australia's southernmost street: Cockle Creek Tasmania weekend road trip in the Mazda BT-50

We're all busy people — so it's important to take time out every now and then. Well, that's the excuse we came up with. Last year I had the chance to drive to the northernmost point of Australia with Volkswagen in the Amarok. With that trip a fond, albeit distant, memory, we conjured up a plan to drive another ute, a Mazda BT-50, to the southernmost point of Australia...

2016 Mazda BT-50 Review: Coober Pedy Off-Road Adventure

We don't usually get the opportunity to get this far off the beaten track, but today we're in the beautiful Arkaringa station in Northern South Australia - just north of Coober Pedy - to put the 2016 Mazda BT-50 through its paces. Out here, there’s a lot of dirt, a lot of dust, and hardly any people...

Dual-cab ute mega-test review: Ranger Colorado D-Max BT-50 Triton Navara HiLux Amarok

Read the article here. If there was ever a vehicle that typified the work hard / play hard Australian lifestyle, it is the double-cab ute. Tough, practical and pretty cool, these rugged pickups are winning plenty of favour with Australian buyers. But which one is best? We’ve gathered eight of the most popular models together and will put them through their paces over a series of challenges to find Australia’s Best Ute...

As such, we’ve assembled five budget-friendly business-minded single-cab-chassis utility vehicles to see which is the best end-of-financial-year bargain...

Extra-cab ute comparison: Ford Ranger v Mazda BT-50 v Nissan Navara v Toyota HiLux

So you don’t want a single-cab ute, and you can’t quite stretch to a dual-cab in terms of budget ... the extra-cab ute is the pick-up truck for you. This style of ute caters to the needs of buyers who want the flexibility of four seats, but tray space closer to that of a single-cab variant...

Ute comparison: Ford Ranger v Holden Colorado v Isuzu D-Max v Mazda BT-50 v Mitsubishi Triton v Nissan Navara v Toyota HiLux v Volkswagen Amarok

Utes, pick-ups, trucks, dual-cabs, double-cabs – whatever you call them, these big four-door 4x4 haulers are massively important to buyers in Australia. The 4x4 utility segment has boomed in recent years, and it remains one of the strongest parts of the Australian new car market – indeed, roughly one in every 10 vehicles sold in this country will be a four-wheel-drive commercial vehicle...

Mazda overtakes Holden in 2015: First full-importer to finish second overall

Mazda BT-50 petrol model ruled out

The Mazda BT-50 range will not see the addition of an entry-level petrol model, despite many rivals offering a base model version with that fuel type at a more attractive price point. The refreshed 2016 Mazda BT-50 line-up still starts at $25,570 plus on-road for the base-model 2.2-litre turbo diesel single-cab-chassis XT variant, which puts the price of entry into a BT-50 higher than many rivals...

Next Mazda BT-50 might be HiLux-based

The growing global joint-venture between Mazda and Toyota could have implications for Australia’s massive light commercial sector. There are whispers that the next Mazda BT-50 one-tonne ute could be twinned with the Toyota HiLux, rather than the Ford Ranger as it is at present...

2012 Mazda BT-50 Xtr (4x4) Review

First impressions ... Large... but when you drive it, it handles and feels like a mid range 4x4. The finish is good and styling is safe.. if anything a little to safe. As for Technology it is good for 2012 standards... In built GPS way to small - But has a good range of other stuff that will keep ya busy. One annoying factor was the trip computer...

2012 MAZDA BT50 GT Review

I have owned LandCruisers and HiLuxes exclusively for 22 years. I live and work in a rural environment, drive fast freeways, carry loads, tow boats etc. I was very insecure of leaving Toyota. I change vehicles every 3 years. Could not handle the poor body quality of Toyota anymore. They have cheapened the quality. The new BT50 GT diesel auto has blown me away...

2012 MAZDA BT-50 XTR Review

My vehicle is a manual variant and I find the automatic application of the brakes, particularly at traffic lights, disconcerting as the car will not move for two seconds after the release of the brakes (significant engine vibration during the clutch application in this two second period)...
