The Isuzu D-Max was introduced in Australia and New Zealand in June 2012. This 4 star ANCAP safety rating applies to all body types and driven wheel variants of the D-Max sold in Australia and New Zealand except 4x4 crew cab variants built from November 2013 and 4x2 crew cab high ride variants built from November 2014 (see the separate 5 star ANCAP safety ratings).
The RHD diesel crew cab European model was tested by Euro NCAP. Isuzu provided ANCAP with technical information which showed that this rating applies to the D-Max sold in Australia and New Zealand.
Dual frontal, side chest and side head airbags (curtains) are standard. Antilock brakes (ABS), electronic brake distribution (EBD) and electronic stability control (ESC) are also standard. Advanced seat belt reminders are fitted to both front seats. Single pretensioners are fitted to the front seat belts to reduce slack in the event of a crash.
