Mazda BT-50 XTR 2021 review: snapshot

EXPERT RATING
8.3
Second model up the 2021 Mazda BT-50 range is the XTR. It forms the middle rung of the ladder for the now-based-on-the-Isuzu-D-Max ute.

Second model up the 2021 Mazda BT-50 range is the XTR. It forms the middle rung of the ladder for the now-based-on-the-Isuzu-D-Max ute.

The XTR version is available in 4x2 or 4x4 guises, but unlike the XT below it, the XTR is solely available as a Pickup (or pick-up/ute)

The dual cab XTR 4x2 Pickup lists at $49,470 (MSRP/RRP - not including on-road costs), and it’s available with a six-speed automatic only. The dual cab XTR 4x4 is available as a six-speed manual at $54,710 or with the auto transmission at $57,210. 

The BT-50 range comes powered by a turbo diesel 3.0-litre four-cylinder engine with 140kW (at 3600rpm) and 450Nm (at 1600-2600rpm). BT-50 towing capacity for all models is 750kg unbraked and 3500kg braked, which is among the best you can get. Fuel use is claimed at between 7.7L/100km and 8.0L/100km depending on the model. 

Wondering what equipment you get for the XTR version? 

Over the base grade it gets 18-inch alloy wheels, LED front fog lights and daytime running lights along with LED headlights, chrome horizontal bars for the grille and different headlight inlays,  side steps, dual-zone climate control with rear directional air vents, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear selector, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a fold-down rear-seat armrest, keyless entry, push-button start, and the media screen upsizes to a larger 9.0-inch multimedia system with sat nav, plus there’s a six-speaker stereo.

The safety tech list is extensive, though manual XTR variants miss out on adaptive cruise control while autos get that tech standard. All BT-50s have AEB with pedestrian and cyclist detection, lane keeping assistance systems, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, front turn assist, driver attention assist, eight airbags including a front centre airbag, a reversing camera and rear parking sensors for the pick-up versions.
