Mazda has also expanded the time for each service to 15.000km per year (from 10.000km), therefore, as the company claims, BT-50 owners will save over AU$850 over 5 years. However, it is estimated that the average mileage of the BT-50 is 250,000 km/year, it should be AU$1,920 less costs on service over the period of 5 years. The new-look BT-50 can be had at AU$28,990 (equivalent to approximately P1,129,000).
