What a brilliant package for that price. Looks like HM didn't bother for heavy localization and it shows. The interior bits looks better than most B segment hatchbacks we have.

A double cab with ABS would have been a great.

I have been seeing his vehicle in Bangalore (Milky Mist delivery vehicle) and was amazed at the quality of the interiors. Very well packaged.

I saw one of these in black on chennai roads a while back. Looked like a personal vehicle with some well dressed gentleman behind the wheel. Quite a good looker as well. The 2.5L engine is the icing on this very tasty cake.

I don't see it making a dent to the Xenon sales, primarily because Isuzu doesn't have the network that Tata enjoys.

Plus, the Xenon is not going to be an easy pushover & I say this out of some driving experience on it. The Xenon is quite powerful, has immense torque & has been proven very capable in the commercial segment. Plus, its fuel efficiency figures are the best & I don't see the Isuzu bettering that.

From a personal vehicle perspective, the Xenon looks way better to me personally & the rear bench is a definite yes if such a truck needs to be used for personal purposes, which the Isuzu doesn't have.

So, whether a trader or a personal user, I still see the Xenon leading the charts.

Brilliant product, superb exteriors and power train, bring it in twin cab with ABS, 4X4, AT transmission and I'll leave my loyalty for cars and jump on to this beast.

If you didn't understand what I mean, google images Isuzu DMax modified

Hope Isuzu officials are reading this !

ISUZU's diesels are some of the best, if not best and no doubt they are no nonsense ruggedness and mileage masters. A honest vehicle, in true ISUZU style. Lovely pricing. Only of they make some cars....

I loved the D-Max when I saw it at the Auto Expo. However, there are a lot of factors because of which it will just not impact sales of the Tata Xenon or Mahindra Getaway (not that I have seen many samples of this one).
1. Just two seats
2. Sparse dealer network
3. For commercial use only
4. No 4-wheel drive option
Isuzu needs to act quickly and make changes accordingly. With Japanese reliability and quality, it can easily take the game away from the Indian companies.

Saw the new D-Max on the outer ring road (Bangalore) last Saturday and did not look very imposing at all! Had a very acceptable, car like stance when viewed!

But certainly looked apart from other vehicles on the road!

Also, the Isuzu service center (Trident Isuzu) is already up and running!! (in the same Hyundai and Renault showroom campus)

Looks like Isuzu has started testing a double-can version of the D-Max. This test mule was spotted on the Chennai - Bangalore highway.
