Mazda BT-50 Thunder
Exhilaration has always run in the Mazda3 family. And the latest Mazda3 continues this legacy.
From the instrument panel to the gear selector, everything was placed with intention and care to make your every move more intuitive. Why? To let you focus on what matters most: driving.
Assured control of sound in the cabin — whether noise or music — is another key element of driving pleasure, superbly achieved by Mazda Harmonic Acoustics.
Knowledge is power, but poorly presented information results in stress and confusion. So Mazda’s HMI is entirely human-centric in its design, keeping you informed while leaving you free to concentrate on driving. Constantly changing high-priority information is delivered in real-time in the Active Driving Display just below your line of sight: essential driving information is shown in the meter cluster LCD directly in front of you, and information related to entertainment and convenience comes via the 8.8-inch center display.
Exhilaration has always run in the Mazda3 family. And the Mazda3 continues this legacy. The Mazda3’s already excellent performance and handling amplify the exhilaration with a precisely tuned 4-wheel independent suspension system and your choice manual or automatic transmission powered by spirited 2.0-liter or 2.5-liter Skyactiv-G gasoline engines, with the 2.5-liter offering 137.2 maximum power and 250.8 Nm of torque.
This windscreen-projected display is close to your line of sight for easy visibility. Important driving information is displayed in the upper section, vehicle status information is displayed in the lower section.
Combine the sharp initial response and powerful torque of a diesel engine with the faithful, linear response of a petrol powerplant. That’s Skyactiv-X, the next step towards the ideal internal combustion engine. It’s made possible by Mazda’s revolutionary Spark Controlled Compression Ignition (SPCCI) technology, the world’s first* petrol engine with compression ignition control.
Your driving position affects every interaction you have with the car. It’s where driving pleasure begins, and it’s one more place where Mazda puts the focus on you to assure natural posture and ultimate ease of operation. The pedal layout is a prime example.
A confident drive is always a better drive. And that’s why our available i-ACTIVSENSE® safety innovations use sophisticated technologies to help alert you to hazards before they happen. It’s another way Mazda lets you focus on what matters: driving.
