ANCAP 2013 5 five star

The Isuzu MU-X (MY17) was introduced in Australia and New Zealand in late April 2017. ANCAP and Euro NCAP conducted crash tests of the Isuzu D-Max utility. ANCAP was provided with evidence to show that the results of the D-Max testing apply to the MU-X sports utility vehicle, which is based on the same platform. This ANCAP safety rating applies to all MU-X variants.

Experience shows that large vehicles like the MU-X can be expected to perform well in this test. ANCAP has adopted a policy of awarding these types of vehicles a default score of 16 points (out of 16).
