Arguably the most anticipated launch this year is the all-new Mazda BT-50. Designed in concert with Isuzu and built in Thailand, Mazda owners will gravitate to the brand rather than any other. Mazda’s sense of customer responsiveness will be enhanced by the reputation of the bones of this new ute.
It’s a very competitive world in the utility (ute) market. As I suggested in my recent take on the Nissan Navarra ST 4×4 Dual Cab, it’s the most represented segment of the Australian Car Business. Mazda has upgraded its offering with the Mazda BT-50
If you can put up with his whining pommy accent, Mat Watson provides a comparison that will interest all of you who’ve either purchased a dual cab ute recently or are in the market for one. Whilst this is based on the British version of the cars in the headline,
Hello and welcome to my new website thecarguy.com.au!
I know that there’s a lot of websites that offer car reviews, car road tests, opinions on various cars and the like. What makes this site different is that I’m not going to bore you with technical information about the various cars that I review.
I’ve been in the car business for over 39 years. I’ve read the motoring magazines cover to cover. I’ve read the online reviews until my eyes were square. Everywhere that I go, I find motoring journalists talking about car speeds – 0 – 100 km per hour, standing ¼ times, the inclination of this and that at 150klm per hour on a 12.5% gradient curve, in rainy weather – and other stuff that bores me no end.
thecarguy.com.au is taking a different path on the journey to helping you purchase a new car. I’ll do my best to advise you on what I consider to be the most important information when it comes to that major decision to purchase a car. Interior room, features of the car, fuel economy, safety, service prices, resale and lots more. I’ll tell you what I like about a particular car and as importantly, what I don’t like, to find at least to be less than I think a car should have. .
And I’ll ask for your opinion. Take some pics of what you’re driving and tell me and our audience what you particularly like or dislike about your car. Because besides prospective new car buyers, there’s a lot of people who’ll read your comments as used car buyers.
So, jump on board, strap yourself in and let’s start out on the journey with The Car Guy.
