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...

2016 Mazda BT-50 GT (4x4) Review

We entered the new car market with our 18 month-old SR5 HiLux auto dual-cab. We drove three or four competitors before driving into a Mazda dealer. The dealer gave us the keys to a BT-50 GT to go for a test drive and we were immediately blown away with the ride's quietness and the awesome power over our much-loved old HiLux...

2013 Mazda BT-50 GT (4x4) Review

Needed a ute to replace the 2005 Toyota Prado, so chose the BT50/Ford. Handles like a truck. Great if you are going forward, but no visibility backing up. Even after fitting a backing camera. Heavy in the steering & doesn't hold the road as good as the old Prado. As I said it feels and handles like a truck twice its size...

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...
