The 2009 Mazda B-Series' styling isn’t as notable as its functionality. As Edmunds puts it, the 2009 Mazda is "essentially a Ford Ranger wearing different clothes."
TheCarConnection.com notes that very few sources have much to say about the Mazda 2009 B-Series' outward appearance, except for Kelley Blue Book, which comments that for 2009, Mazda performs "a front-end freshening, with more brightwork around the grille and headlamps and a raised 'power dome' hood."
Edmunds reports that the Mazda 2009 B-Series has remained true to its roots by staying relatively small while similar pickups have grown in size, remaining a "true compact." Car and Driver expresses disappointment that there is no four-door club cab available, although an extended cab is an option.
Car and Driver considers the interior of the 2009 Mazda B-Series dated: "no hiding the fact that the fundamental design work on this truck...aesthetically, was done a decade ago." Edmunds agrees, 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." Autoblog reports "four different cabin configurations" for the 2009 Mazda B-Series and says "the interior is fairly elegant."
