The All-New Isuzu D-Max, highly anticipated in the local market, has won its very first UK award after eclipsing all the competition at the 4×4 Magazine awards.
After a conducting a comprehensive driving appraisal, testing the safety equipment and comparing its specification with the competitors, the esteemed panel were convinced that there was only one worthy winner and bestowed the coveted title upon the All-New Isuzu D-Max. The judges were particularly impressed by the new model’s comfortable interior, refined driving characteristics, sleek dashboard design and new infotainment systems, which includes a 9-inch touchscreen display on the top-of-the-range model.
Alan Kidd, Editor at 4×4 Magazine, commented: “This D-Max is far more refined to drive on the road. It’s smoother and quieter at all speeds, with steering and suspension that disguise its size. Its cabin is a quantum leap forward with cutting-edge electronics mounted on a superb looking dash”.
As the UK’s only 4×4 and Pick-Up Magazine, their dedicated readership of off-road enthusiasts will also be interested in the D-Max’s even stronger chassis, faster engaging shift-on-the-fly 4WD system and the rear diff-lock, which is now standard on All-Purpose and Adventure range models.
The increased refinement, safety and comfort of the All-New Isuzu D-Max hasn’t compromised Isuzu’s renowned practicality, with the new model offering a 3.5t towing capacity and a maximum payload of over one tonne.
The new Isuzu D-Max is expected to launch in South Africa in 2022.
