2017 Mazda BT-50: Alpine infotainment and navigation added as prices go up

2017 Mazda BT-50: Alpine infotainment and navigation added as prices go up

The country’s seventh-best-selling dual-cab utility, the Mazda BT-50, has had its infotainment package upgraded, with the fresh addition of a new system from well-known electronics company Alpine.

Mazda Australia has announced that all mid-spec XTR and top-spec GT BT-50 models rolling into dealerships from today will sport, as standard, a new 8.0-inch Alpine-branded infotainment system, highlighted by improved satellite navigation and a fully-integrated rear-view camera.

Giving its long-time player in the highly-competitive dual-cab pickup segment a much needed technology boost, the high-resolution colour touchscreen Alpine unit additionally features split-screen capabilities, DAB+ digital radio, live traffic updates (through the Radio Data System), and point-to-point four-wheel drive off-road navigation with 3D digital terrain.

Teamed with Bluetooth phone connectivity and voice and steering wheel controls, Mazda Australia says the new system is further supported by “more accessible” dash top-mounted USB, HDMI, and AUX ports.

Linked to price increases ranging from $700 to $860, Mazda Australia public relations coordinator Kathleen McMahon told CarAdvice, the tech update for the BT-50 is part of a wider aim to please customers.

“We are always looking to improve our customer experience in all aspects of our business, including our products,” McMahon said.

“Adopting the Alpine sat-nav infotainment system is an example of this focus.”

Although MY17 XTR and GT models now start at $42,490 and $52,490 (before on-road costs) – up from $41,630 and $51,790, respectively – Mazda Australia is currently offering the six-speed manual 4×4 BT-50 XTR for $47,990 driveaway and the six-speed manual 4×4 BT-50 GT for $52,990 driveaway.
