Isuzu D-Max Euroncap Rating
The new D-Max pickup truck by Japanese car maker Isuzu has been put through NCAP’s rigorous tests and managed to get four stars, which is not the perfect score. But then we’re talking about a pickup truck and not a family car. It’s fair for it to score bad in child safety for example.
The Isuzu D-Max received a strong 83% in the ‘adult occupant’ category, scoring maximum points for the protection it provides in the side-barrier test, thanks to its new, stronger, longer and wider chassis (compared to its predecessor). Euro NCAP also praised the front and rear head restraints for providing good protection against whiplash injuries in a rear-end collision. It also managed to score of 71% in the ‘safety assist’ category. In the ‘child occupant’ category, the new pick-up scored 67%.
The D-Max gets standard The Electronic Stability Programme, and front seatbelt reminder system.
Isuzu press release:
William Brown, General Manager at Isuzu UK commented: “These positive results demonstrate the quality of the new Isuzu D-Max, and especially so given that it has been subjected to the new, tougher Euro NCAP testing criteria. Customers can now add an impressive independent safety score to the list of attributes that makes the Isuzu D-Max a highly appealing ownership proposition.”
The Isuzu D-Max is one of the most cost effective pick-ups on the market today, with ultra-low insurance groups (8A to 10A), class-leading residual values and fuel economy, industry-leading fleet packages (available from £185 per month), all backed-up by the company’s unique-in-sector, five-year, 120,000-mile warranty.
The all-new Isuzu D-Max is available in three body styles – single, extended and double cab – with prices starting from £14,499 (CVOTR) for the entry-level single cab 4×2, rising to £21,499 (CVOTR) for the top-of-the-range Utah double cab 4×4 Automatic. The Isuzu D-Max is fitted with a completely re-engineered, 2.5-litre twin-turbo diesel engine and is available with a six-speed manual or five-speed automatic transmission.
