Superior Mazda has taken our first glimpse at the Freestyle Cab variant of Mazda's all-new BT-50 utility scheduled to debut at the Australian International Auto Show, this July. All we can say is, we want it.
Featuring the unique door configuration originally seen on the Mazda RX-8, the new Mazda BT-50 Freestyle Cab offers spacious seating for five and an extra-wide door opening on either side of the truck. And, to provide even more room for cargo, the rear seats fold up to a 90-degree position, making loading and transporting tools, boxes, and sports equipment easier than ever.
In addition to adapting to driver's needs, the rear seats are also incredibly comfortable. Unlike many, which take a toll on your tailbone, the seats in the new Mazda BT-50 Freestyle Cab truck offer serious cushioning, more thigh support, stability and a taller, more comfortable seatback.
Another addition, we think truck drivers will revel in is the rear cargo tub. Wider, longer and taller than the Mazda BT-50, it carries exactly 266 liters more cargo volume.
"Just as we were delighted to be given the privilege of hosting the global debut of the all-new BT-50 Dual Cab in Sydney last year, we are equally delighted to be hosting the global debut of the Freestyle Cab in Melbourne this year," says Doug Dickinson, Managing Director, Mazda Australia, speaking on the imminent unveiling of the all-new Mazda BT-50 Freestyle Cab. "With Australia expected to be the largest market for the all-new BT-50, it's no coincidence that we've been asked to host not one but two global unveilings of this important new model. It's only appropriate that the Australian public see it first."1
Unfortunately, the Mazda BT-50 Freestyle Cab make is not likely to make it stateside anytime soon. However, Superior Mazda, located at 2600 SE Moberly Lane Bentonville, AR will continue to keep our fingers crossed.
