The Isuzu D-Max was introduced in Australia and New Zealand in June 2012. The RHD diesel crew cab European model was tested by Euro NCAP. Isuzu provided ANCAP with technical information which showed that this 4-star safety rating applies to all body types and driven wheel variants of the D-Max sold in Australia and New Zealand.

In the offset crash test driver chest and leg protection was marginal. Passenger leg protection was also marginal. Driver protection in the side impact test was good. Head protection in the side pole test was good.

Important note: The RHD diesel crew cab European model was tested by Euro NCAP. Australasian specifications may vary and therefore models sold in Australasia might provide different levels of protection to those described on this page.

The side impact test 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. Experience shows that such vehicles can be expected to perform well in this test and the D-Max scored full marks.

The vehicle was eligible for a pole impact test, since it had head-protecting side airbags. The vehicle earned the maximum two points in this test.

Pedestrian Summary

In those areas likely to be struck by a pedestrian's lower leg, the protection was good. The front edge of the bonnet offered poor protection, which is where a pedestrian's upper leg would contact. Protection was mixed in most areas likely to be struck by the head of a child or an adult.
