more brightwork around the grille and headlamps

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."

Conclusion

The 2008 Mazda B-Series' styling isn’t as notable as its functionality.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
