One of the Safest Vehicles On New Zealand Roads
Redefining the standards for safety, the All-New Isuzu D-Max is the first vehicle to be tested in Australasia against the new stringent 2020 ANCAP testing and rating criteria—achieving a maximum 5 star safety rating across the entire Isuzu D-Max range.
In September 2020, Australasian’s leading independent vehicle safety authority, ANCAP SAFETY published a 5 star safety rating for the All-New Isuzu D-Max, praising it for re-establishing “the safety benchmark for the competitive ute segment.”
“The D-MAX rating has been highly anticipated by fleet and private buyers, and re-establishes the safety benchmark for the competitive ute segment which has traditionally tended to lag that of passenger cars and SUVs,” said ANCAP Director of Communications and Advocacy, Rhianne Robson.
In the official ANCAP statement announcing the maximum 5 star safety rating result, ANCAP commended Isuzu for democratising safety across the entire range, stating that “all variants in the D-Max range – single cab, space cab, double cab, and cab chassis – provide the same high level safety features, technologies and performance as standard.”
Isuzu’s Intelligent Driver Assistance System (IDAS#), which covers an extensive list of both active and passive safety features, is standard across every D-MAX model. Using state-of-the-art sensors and a stereo camera system, the D-MAX constantly monitors your surrounding environment for danger. Should it detect a collision is imminent, the system will work to help the driver to defuse dangerous situations via alert systems and automated functions.
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)
Automatically adjusts your speed based on vehicles around you when cruise-control is activated making open road driving a breeze. (Automatic Transmission only)
Driver Attention Assist (DAA)
Your D-MAX recognises traffic signs, displaying information such as speed limits in the Multi-Information Display (MID) for easy reference.
Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB)
If your D-MAX detects a potential collision, emergency braking is applied automatically. That's clever and safe technology to help keep you and others safe out on the road.
Forward Collision Warning (FCW)
An audible warning sounds and red warning lights flash on the dashboard when an obstacle is detected in your path giving you a chance to avoid a collision.
