2017 Mazda BT-50

The newest specs about the latest 2017 Mazda BT-50 have been released. The model is going to be remodeled for the upcoming year but the changes are not as big as you would expect them to be. People were expecting to see a much more dramatic look compared to before as the one form the previous year has not done anything surprising. The things with the BT-50 that we see now is that it is going to be a bit more macho looking compared to last time and it is the fact that goes with its style now.

The newest model is going to offer us three style cabs, the single-cab, Freestyle-cab and dual-cab, which are more than enough for the needs the buyers of this model will have. These cabs also allow a lot of versatility as it offers a total of 23 variants for the BT-50 to have. It is also great news that the car is going to remain as affordable as before. Compared to the competition it is going to have a fair pricing that is going to make the fans chose this brand more and more. The rivals in the segment area the Isuzu D-Max, Holden Colorado, Volkswagen Amarok and certainly the Ford Ranger, so it helps being priced like this when one is in the same segment as these models.

For some reason, the sales of the 2WD version of the Mazda BT-50 were a lot higher before camped to the 4WD version, which actually toppled the sales of the likes as Toyota Hilux and Ranger, Navara and Colorado models. But will it be the same this year. The sales slowness that the car started realizing recently may be accounted because of the fact that the Mazda BT-50 has never been as butch as the models that it goes against but the 2017 Mazda BT-50 will certainly try to change this fact. Read the review and see what is our opinion for the future of this model.

Exterior appearance

The newest additions that have been and to the 2017 Mazda BT-50 is that they have made it seem a bit more attractive and exclusive looking. It is still pretty much the same and looks as if nothing has changed that much, but in fact the car went through some style changes compared to before. The front bumper has gone through certain changes and the latest look has received some fog lights that help the visibility and assist us in various situations when the visibility is low.

The headlights also have a new design and have the added LED bulbs placed in the sides. This is an addition, although a minor one, that makes the car look attractive and enables it to be a bit more premium than it was before. Another innovation given to the entire car is that the model is going to go through a weight reduction and will be extremely lighter than before. It accounts for fuel economy which is a big factor for models in this segment.

Interior update

The interior of the 2017 Mazda BT-50 is actually going to feature a much more drastic update compared to the exterior but the changes are not going to be aesthetic. The featured additions and updates made here are mainly going to be related to the comfort levels of the car and its usefulness. This means that the seats as well as the steering wheel are going to have the same type of fine leather added to them. It makes things much more crosier and the seats make it much easier for the driver and the passenger to travel. The steering wheel is also adaptable and is poisoned in a way that people of different heights can use it.

The control panel is going to be updated and redesigned and it is going to feature added settings and features that are very useful for the model. The 7.8 inch touchscreen is a valuable addition and it allows the contorl of more settings and parts of the car that way. From there you can use the sound system, Bluetooth, navigation and the car comes standard with USB connectivity and WiFi. All of the technological features have been updated as well and will be much more appropriate for the car and the driver.

2017 Mazda CX-5

The newest model of the 2017 Mazda CX-5 is coming out and is scheduled for release. The brand has been renovated and updated as the sales have been lagging behind with the current model and there was no chance that the model would continue like that as it kept getting beat by some contemporary rivaling cars. In order to bridge the margin between them, Mazda decided to update their CX-5 model.

The original CX-5 was launched in 2012 and was intended as the 2013 model. It made its debut as one of the newer crossover models on the market and was made with the same platform that was used for the Mazda3 and Mazda6 sedan models. Actually, the Mazda CX-5 was one of the first models that started using the now legendary Kodo design language and the SkyActiv technology. Available which started its use in 2013 on the North American market. This is going to be the first mid-cycle facelift that the CX-5 is going to go through and it is a much necessary one.

The model managed to sell nearly 100,000 units, which is a good thing, but when we consider that it is lagging behind the competition for example the Honda CR-V which managed to sell 355,019 models, it is a concerning fact and something had to be done in order to adjust the numbers. The upcoming 2017 refresh might be a solution so you can read our opinion in the review before you get your own.

Exterior

As this is a refresh model, the incorporated exterior changes for the 2017 Mazda CX-5 are going to be very subtle. Despite them being few they are still very much noticeable and can change the face of the car in a great extent. The grille has been updated as it has horizontal bars with metallic grey fins instead of the mesh one which was used before. The headlights have also been revised and also received LED additions and also the fog lamp surrounds have been slightly adjusted and will fit the grille design much better this time.

The profile of the 2017 Mazda CX-5 has not changed and the only addition here are the optional wheels that you can add to your car. The model adds a 19-inch wheel option which have a new design and match better with its 3D design. The rear end has the least amount of changes as it only adds a new LED signature to the taillights, and even that is an optional part as it does not come available with all the trim levels that the car offers.

Finally, there are two new colors added for the 2017 Mazda XC-5, and they include Sonic Silver Metallic and Titanium Flash Mica. These are all the changes for the new model and we hope that they get to be enough to raise the sales a bit more.

Interior

The interior of the 2017 Mazda CX-5 has updated the trim and the fit of the car. The panels fit together cleanly and the updated materials are improved and the interior has a much upscale look to it. There is some leather surrounding the touchscreen area and the soft touch materials that surround the dash are a great new addition for the car and makes it much more advanced. The seats have also been reworked and now account for more comfort.

The biggest change is actually between the front seats. The center console and the center stack have gone though heavy revisions. The sound system does not have so many buttons and the HVAC controls have been reduced as well to just two knobs. There is more room to store your things as there are some added storage compartments. With the changes that the 2017 Mazda CX-5 has gone through we get a car which is not just modern but perhaps has the best SUV features out of many other cars on the market.

Engine

As for the engine of the 2017 Mazda CX-5 is concerned, they have already struck gold with the Skyactiv technology, so there is no chance that this is going to change for a long time. The base engine remains the  2.0-liter Skyactiv-G four-cylinder engine that delivers 155 horses at 6,000 rpm and 150 pound-feet of torque at 4,000 rpm, while the optional offer is the 2.5-liter engine – also a Skyactiv-G which has an output of 184 horsepower at 5,700 rpm and 184 pound-feet of torque at 3,250 revs. The basic transmission is the ix-speed Skyactiv-MT manual, and an optional one is the gear swapper is the Skyactiv-Drive six-speed auto. The base version only delivers power to the front wheels, but the advanced version has the all-wheel drive available.

The 2017 Mazda 6 car is yet another release that has been announced by the Mazda company which is going to be released quite soon. The model is going to offered perhaps next year and is among the vehicle which have been getting an update coming out of the production line of Mazda. Mazda has also been on a tear as they have been providing cars left and right ever since the year started and have a number of new releases already lined up. But what the 2017 Mazda 6 has that other new releases do not is the added power and the quite strong output this vehicle has.

Other vehicles that Mazda is going to produce this year do not have a great output and are solid cars which are basically measured because of its value for money equation. This is perhaps the only vehicle that promises to offer some very high performance specs and also some very premier driving ability.

The vehicle is getting  a slew of changes that are going to make it much better and quite handsome. The vehicle is going to become quite a looker and it is all thanks to the recognizable language design that Mazda is giving to all of its future model. Mix the performance and great design together and we are getting a very nice concept and a very good update for the 2017 Mazda 6. You can read all about it in our review which is going to help you get a better understanding what the latest release brings. Also check out the positional release date and the price ranges as well.

2017 Mazda 6 design

The 2017 Mazda 6 actually looks pretty amazing on the outside. Because of its great KODO design that Mazda uses for all of its vehicles, the vehicle has an absolutely cool looking design which is going to be one of its man advantages. All of the vehicles coming out of the Mazda lineup are actually incorporating this type of a design language and is what makes them unique and very handsome-looking.

The changes compared to the previous model include a much more angular grille to the front of the car which makes it look a little bit meaner than before. There is a huge bumper front bumper which combines with the already great looking front part of the car making it very interesting and much appreciative for the fans. The wheel arches are also great looking and are more muscular now. Compared to the sedan version, the coupe one has a more sporty look to it which is going to get much more attention than the previous model ever did.

Interior update

The 2017 Mazda 6 is going to come with the spacing for carrying 5 passers at once and it also comes in three different trim levels, the sport, touring and grand touring. The main feature of every version is the a telescoping and tilt steering wheel which makes it a lot more easier to maneuver and adjust yourself during driving. The base version also adds full power accessories, cruise control, Bluetooth audio and phone connectivity, air conditioning, a premium sound system and a multi-informational display.

The 2017 Mazda 6 is going to have a few engine options to offer its fans. The first one is a front-wheel drive option which uses a 2.5 L four cylinder engines with a power output of 184 of horsepower and 185 pound feet of torque.

The performance is quite good actually as the 2017 Mazda 6 has the ability to make 0-60 mph in 7.6 seconds as measured by Edmunds. It This is in fact the top measured time in its respective segment. The EPA ratings also say that the car is capable of making 31 miles per gallon combined at 26mpg in the city and 38 mpg on the highway when using an automatic gearshift or 29 miles per gallon combined at 25mpg in the city and 37 mpg on the highway with the manual.

Price and release date

The price and the release date are quite a mystery for the 2017 Mazda 6 for now. The pricing is something that we are currently not sure about as it has not yet been issued. We are perhaps going to experience a raise as is the reason that we are waiting for the accurate rate. The release date, although elusive is for the most part fixed for next year. We are expecting it to come out mid-year although some assumptions place it as available for the end of the said year.
