Ahead of an expected launch in April, the Isuzu D-Max V-Cross has been spied testing again. It’s been a while since the BS-VI norms kicked in and the D-Max V-Cross has been out of commission since.
Isuzu has been rather slow in rolling out its BS-VI vehicles and the latest in the line-up is private passenger pickup truck, the D-Max V-Cross. So far only the commercial vehicles have been on sale.
The D-Max was recently spotted with fairly minimal camouflage giving us an insight into what we could be getting. What we do know is that the facelifted D-Max V-Cross available internationally still doesn’t make it to the Indian market. The recent facelift however does give us a few updates even though they are just cosmetic in nature.
The new pickup will get a fairly healthy dose of chrome on the grilles, fog lamp surrounds and door handles. On the inside, the cabin remains largely unchanged. You still get a touchscreen infotainment system, an MID for the instrument cluster, dual airbags, steering mounted controls and a blacked out interior theme.
What we don’t see in the BS-VI V-Cross is cruise control, something that was present in the BS-IV model, which seems odd. There should be other tech and safety features on offer such as dual front airbags, traction control, ESP, ABS with EBD and rear parking sensors.
