2024 Isuzu D-Max V-Cross launched, prices start from Rs 21.19 lakh

More from Driving

Isuzu Motors has finally broken a rather long silent streak and given us another updated version of the D-Max V-Cross. Why do we say ‘one more?’ Because while the rest of the world enjoys the third generation D-Max V-Cross, we continue to make do with the second generation model. Nevertheless, Isuzu Motors offers the 2024 D-Max V-Cross in three variants; the Hi-Lander (Rs 21.19 lakh), the V-Cross Z (Rs 25.51 lakh) and the V-Cross Z Prestige (Rs 26.91 lakh, all prices ex-showroom).

Since we continue to get the second-generation V-Cross, it has the familiar design we’ve seen since 2016. Parts such as the grille, front and rear bumpers, roof rails, ORVMs and the wheel arch fender edges now have a gray finish, while the 18-inch alloy wheels are finished in black.

The cabin has also been retained and there are no changes in that area. However, Isuzu says the rear seat has now been tilted further back to increase passenger comfort. For safety, all passengers now receive three-point seat belts and a seat belt reminder. There are some additions to the equipment list; manual transmission versions get traction control, electronic stability control, hill descent control and hill start assist.

Things also remain unchanged under the hood; the 1.9-litre diesel mill with 160 hp and 36.70 kgm of torque, with the option of a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic, and also available with shift-on-the-fly 4×4. The payload is 215 kg (180 kg for the top version Z Prestige). As for the third generation D-Max V-Cross, maybe next time…
