When designing the interior of the all-new D-Max the engineers were given a directive to use an airplane cockpit as inspiration. This means that control ergonomics, occupant comfort, material quality & durability, and driver visibility are key priorities. The team at Isuzu Utes nailed the brief, once you jump in the all-new D-Max you will never want to leave.

Sculpted sports seats feature a foldable rear centre armrest. Wide front seat rails provide extra comfort for rear passengers, allowing those with larger feet or boots to easily stretch under the front seat. Entering and exiting has been made easier thanks to large door openings. Double sealed doors and an excess of soundproofing makes the D-Max a peaceful and relaxing ride.

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.

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.
