The all-new Mazda B-Series goes on sale during March 2003. It is a truly versatile vehicle which is as much at home on the beach or mountain as it is in a variety of commercial settings. With three body styles, two powerful engines, a choice of rear or all-wheel drive transmissions, passenger car levels of comfort, and a truly functional cab with room for five adults, the Mazda B-Series really is a vehicle for all lifestyles with prices starting at just £9,495 (excluding VAT).
The Mazda B-Series is aimed at those who want a rugged vehicle that can carry five adults with ease and has a generous external load area for carrying anything from wet and sandy surfboards to a load of topsoil or machinery, keeping the interior clean.
The choices available from Mazda are a single cab with either the 2.5-litre diesel (2WD) or the 2.5-litre turbo diesel (4WD); a double cab with the turbo; a 4x4 RAP Cab 4-Action with easy access freestyle doors and the 2.5 turbo; and a 4-Action or 4-Style 4x4 double cab also with the turbo engine for those with a lifestyle that needs a rugged vehicle with passenger car comfort.
Mazda has split the Mazda B-Series range to appeal to two distinct markets, three models for those who want a functional load carrier for commercial applications and three lifestyle pick-ups which are crammed full of comfort and styling features.
Traditionally the Mazda B-Series has been a reliable workhorse for those who need a good load lugger that can cope with low friction surfaces, and this market is still serviced with the single and double cab Mazda B-Series. The 4x4 RAP Cab 4-Action, the 4x4 Double Cab 4-Action and 4-Style are aimed at the leisure market where people who live active lifestyles with many outdoor interests have a need for a vehicle that offers passenger car comfort and driving characteristics but has the ability to carry often dirty and wet loads without compromising the comfort of the passenger cab. The Mazda B-Series is also a very capable off-roader and able to take on the roughest of ground and low friction surfaces.
