Mazda BT-50 pickup truck, unlike the previous generation, has a new engine, which is a major advantage, but also the underlined part. It was developed specifically for the new line of this model cars and replaces the old and morally obsolete турбодизельному motor, which had a capacity of only 109 horsepower. Now, if the new truck passengers will be occupied all the free seats and will want to ride, Mazda pickup, will rapidly and steadily gained its speed.

 And what we have inside?


This engine has a pretty good traction torque indicator has 330 nm, and may already be attainable at 1800 rpm.

But in reality everything is a little different: 

mazda accelerates smoothly and as such "reception" does not affect you, like most traction. Improve the transfer of accounts, when the arrow tachometer reach 4,000 rpm.

But for our «Russian roads", as well as for other murdered country trails, this engine is quite perfect.

This ideal complement other important elements of the new truck, such as the torsion bar front suspension and rear leaf spring suspension. This harmonious combination may indicate that the carrying capacity significantly exceeds the comfort of the pickup.

 and now, ride

Suspension of this car is very elastic and power-hungry. When driving on uneven coverage, she chews his all these irregularities, leaving them. Unfortunately, the whole course of the shock absorbers is not enough to have a body was optimum stability: on mid-sized holes and wheel fail, what passengers can cause discomfort.

Control the pickup is not difficult, but it is more pleasant to steer still in some other mazda.

Brakes work only sneaker in the floor, and to be able to properly them to maneuver and to reduce speed, you need to have a certain skill, and it will take some time to get used to all this.

This SUV has the connecting system of a full drive. But it is still better to ride in the back bridge, because its design includes a special limited-slip differential, whose main task is to a situation, when a machine is stuck rear wheels, they were spinning slower, it will be faster to get out and go on.

If desired, a bridge can be connected manually – to do this, stop motion, and switch lever transfer case with provisions of the "2H" in the position of «4H" and then you can go "on all 4 wheels».

By the way if you don't want and you need to connect the front wheels straight on speed, then do the following: during the next stop, where you control will be in position "2H", click to the left of the steering button "RFW». In this case, the front axis will continue to communicate with the drive shafts, and this means that you can now include a full drive is already in motion.

Now, about the beauty

How can you not evaluate the work of the manufacturer on a new salon Mazda BT-50. Basically it is intended for work and transportation of various cargoes, but a new beauty "series B" is very good and every thing contained in it, can't please your eyes. Here, for example remote climate control and audio-CD-player differ from all pleasant silvery plastic finish. Not very noticeable, but the cabin has increased.

 new interior pleases an eye


Sit still better to come because the person sitting behind if driving on the pits can toss up much stronger. Though, thanks to the rear couch be back was much more comfortable than before.

Still it is difficult – it get inside the car, due to the fact that the pickup doorways are very narrow.

Incidentally, the Japanese argue that in order to develop this pick-up, which could be used on roads and in such conditions we have, Japanese engineers and marketers had to fly to Russia.

They had to meet with Russian owners of the car, and to interview them, which contained one of the questions, such as, "What did you like?", "That was not pleasant to you in this truck?". We can safely say that the Japanese did a great job on improving the characteristics of this model: increased capacity of the motor - now she is 143 PS, special interior, improved design, and also preservation of the existing advantages.

A little about the cost and feedback

But in spite of this, this pickup will not be fit in the role of a car for the family, because it needs not quite match the example above narrow doorway.
