Raising the bar on Safety

The Mazda BT-50 raises the bar on safety performance with an unprecedented range of active and passive technologies. It all starts with the sturdy body and frame construction incorporating localised reinforcements to accommodate impact paths and protect the integrity of the passenger safety cell. Add to this Front, Side* and Curtain SRS airbags, universal 3-point seat belts plus Bluetooth® hands-free connectivity as standard and the BT-50 goes to the head of the class in passive safety performance.

Active prevention better than cure

While it’s reassuring to know you’re protected in the event of an accident, it’s always better to avoid trouble in the first place. To achieve this, the BT-50 features an Electronic Stability Program that encompasses a myriad of advanced active safety technologies like; Emergency Brake Assist, Load Adaptive Control, Hill Descent Control^, Hill Launch Assist, Trailer Sway Assist, Traction Control and Roll Over Mitigation. These features adjust engine torque and braking to individual wheels to help avoid steering problems as well as track the vehicle’s movements and correct any issues with an inconsistent driving line.

This increased excellence in both passive and active safety technologies has been reflected by the Mazda BT-50 receiving a maximum 5 star safety rating from the Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP) in 2011. Plus, with Bluetooth® hands-free connectivity standard across the range, there’s no need to take your hands off the wheel or eyes of the road. Now, that’s clever.
