The exterior has a more refined and dynamic looking shape, newly designed headlights, larger windscreens, new front grille, semi-concealed wipers and moulded mud flaps. There is a greater choice of body colours to choose from, all of which have undergone Mazda’s new paint process, which ensures a superior finish and greater resistance to corrosion.

The stretch cab is aimed more at the user who needs the flexibility of an open loading area and extra passenger carrying room in the cab. Ideal for transporting crews or giving a secure covered storage area for work tools etc. The double cab offers users the option of more space for carrying passengers and still gives the flexibility of the open cargo area at the rear. This version has a second set of doors that open into the rear seats of the cab. All cabs have a bright and airy feel with excellent all-round visibility, thanks to a large windscreen. The interior has class leading room and comfort for the driver and passenger alike.

Legroom, headroom and shoulder-room have all been improved as a result of increasing the width of the cab and its overall height. To make it easier to enter and exit the vehicle, in addition to reducing driver fatigue, the seats have been positioned higher and have a higher hippoint. It also has many car-like features and equipment, including tilt adjustable steering wheel, powersteering, electric driver’s window and a low-fuel warning lamp. Other conveniences are day/night rear view mirror, intermittent wiper function, digital clock, climate control and rear window demister.
