Get the midlevel SE trim. The SE features a sport-tuned suspension for better handling. Don’t concern yourself with a stiff ride, though the SE continues to be relatively comfortable on the road. The SE is also an excellent bargain considering all of the safety and tech equipment you get for the money. Finally, the SE can be acquired with a wide selection of options, to help you pick and choose which ones are right for your budget.
Crossover SUVs could be all of the rage, but there is still something to be said for the tried-and-true midsize sedan. Exhibit A: the Mazda Pickup 2020 New Concept.

As has been the case for a while, you can get the Mazda Pickup 2020 New Concept with a four-cylinder engine or even a more powerful V6, or you can get the miserly Mazda Pickup 2020 New Concept Hybrid. On the highway, the Mazda Pickup 2020 New Concept is comfortable and compliant. Mazda Pickup 2020 New Concept also offers two sporty versions that infuse the Mazda Pickup 2020 New Concept with a little bit of extra personality.

The Mazda Pickup 2020 New Concept is the base trim. It comes with a relatively light load of features that includes 16-inch steel wheels, automatic LED headlights, cloth upholstery, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, a rearview camera, keyless entry, a 7-inch touchscreen interface, navigation (GPS Scout Link), Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa connectivity, one USB port, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a six-speaker sound system.
Standard on every Mazda Pickup 2020 New Concept Safety Sense, which is a suite of driver assistance features including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure alert with steering assistance, and automatic high beams.
On the next rung up the ladder is the LE.It adds a power-adjustable driver’s seat, 17-inch alloy wheels, a 60/40-split folding back seat and an automobile alarm. For a sporty dynamic, look at the SE.It adds a sport-tuned suspension, revised steering calibration, 18-inch wheels, simulated-leather upholstery (SofTex) seats and paddle shifters.
You can consider the XLE and the XSE trim levels as versions of the LE and the SE, respectively, with a number of additional comfort and convenience items. Highlights include larger wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a head-up display, blind-spot monitoring, keyless ignition, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, extra USB ports, a more impressive 8-inch touchscreen, and wireless smartphone charging.
Most of the features found on the upper trim levels may be added to the low trim levels as options. Other notable options include a sunroof, a JBL audio system coupled with an integral navigation system, a head-up display, and a top-down parking camera system.
As sedans go, the Mazda Pickup 2020 New Concept stuff-hauling credentials are pretty solid. The cargo area is large and opens wide, plus the trunk seat is straightforward to fold down to fit longer items. You will find enough cabin storage options to make most people happy. Loading a vehicle seat is straightforward, too.
Cabin storage is good but not stellar. The forward center console bin is perfect for concealing items but includes a hard, slippery floor, so they really slide around noisily. The console bin at your elbow is really a decent size, and there are modest door pockets in the front and rear that are good for small water bottles only.
The Mazda Pickup 2020 New Concept includes a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles make it easy to expand the space. Loading groceries or luggage is helped out by the wide opening and a low liftover height.
Child safety seat accommodation
It’s quite simple to mount a vehicle seat, with obvious and readily available lower anchors and package tray-mounted tether point, both under plastic covers. There’s enough room so that the front seat need not be scooted completely forward.
