The interior continues the sporty theme, with every detail thought out to give a satisfying feel of quality. The asymmetric layout gives the front passenger a spacious and comfortable area similar to a passenger car, while the driver enjoys a snug, sporty wraparound driving environment.

Mazda BT-50 Thunder’s dual zone auto air conditioner with dual type controls and in-dial temperature displays creates a well serviced interior in terms of temperature control. Leather seats give the driver and passengers a very comfy ride.

In terms of infotainment and audio technology the BT-50 Thunder is equipped with audio system which has AM/FM radio, CD player, MP3 compatibility and is complimented with audio AUX and USB, as well as voice recognition and Bluetooth connectivity.

Last but not least is the safety equipment and systems that the new Mazda BT-50 Thunder has in spades, from features like anti-lock braking system (ABS) through to Load Adaptive Control (LAC).

LAC is a system that allows and accounts for uneven loads. It adjusts the electronic stability control and can ensure control and stability whether the vehicle is fully loaded or empty.

In addition to the LAC, the BT-50 Thunder has a multitude of mitigation and electronic protections that provide the driver with unprecedented feedback and control, ultimately resulting in a more comfortable, safer and more controlled drive.

These include the trailer sway mitigation, roll over mitigation, emergency brake assist and back warning system/rear sensor and emergency stop signal.
