The 2008 Mazda B-Series trucks still look like their Ford Ranger counterparts after more than a decade in production.
As Edmunds puts it, the 2008 Mazda is "essentially a Ford Ranger wearing different clothes." TheCarConnection.com notes that very few sources have much to say about the Mazda 2008 B-Series' outward appearance at all, except for Kelley Blue Book, which comments that for 2008, Mazda has performed "a front-end freshening, with more brightwork around the grille and headlamps and a raised 'power dome' hood."
Car and Driver expresses disappointment that there is no four-door club cab available, although an extended cab is offered as an option. Edmunds reports that the Mazda 2008 B-Series has remained true to its roots by staying relatively small while similar pickups have grown in size, remaining a "true compact."
Autoblog reports "four different cabin configurations" for the 2008 Mazda B-Series and says that "the interior is fairly elegant." Car and Driver considers this Mazda 2008 model's interior dated; "no hiding the fact that the fundamental design work on this truck...aesthetically, was done a decade ago." Edmunds is in agreement here, stating that "the cabin has a dated feel." ConsumerGuide does note that the Mazda has a "convenient dashboard design with easy access to audio and climate controls."
