High risk of life-threatening chest injury

The Isuzu D-Max was introduced in Australia during 2008. This assessment is based on crash tests of the equivalent Holden Rodeo published by ANCAP in 2006. The D-Max has a 3 litre diesel engine.

The D-Max 4x2 scored 7.51 out of 16 in the offset crash test. The passenger compartment was moderately deformed. Protection from serious chest injury was poor for the driver. Leg/foot protection was marginal.

The vehicle was awarded a default score of 16 out of 16 in the side impact crash test.

Head 4 pts
Chest 4 pts
Abdomen 4 pts
Pelvis 4 pts

The side impact test normally used by ANCAP simulates a small car striking the driver's door of the vehicle under test. It is based on a regulation test but the regulation does not apply to vehicles with a high seat height like the D-Max 4x2. Experience shows that such vehicles can be expected to perform well in this test so ANCAP has decided to award full score for these vehicles instead of conducting a crash test. The vehicle was not eligible for a Pole Impact Test since it did not have head-protecting side airbags. This test can earn eligible vehicles an extra two points.
