A 4-door Dmax would make much more sense for your use, as it does for mine and this comes as a welcome news.
Any idea if this will come with the full-fledged engine or the detuned one.

It was supposed to come with Indian assemble engine which was in lower tune but looks they have delayed, at present specification at their web page are same for VCross and DMax but it will be a good idea to confirm with dealer if this is important for you.

Also, I thought that we might be able to carry more if we fitted a canopy instead.

The funny part is, both my dad and me have no idea where to purchase one from. Though the Kolkata Dealer did tell us that he could have one made locally and fitted there.

Is it possible to purchase from es4x4 accessories and have them deliver the product till Kolkata? Or would it be better to have the Dealer make it locally and fit it? We're both confused on this point.
Hi Wadewilson,

I visited Isuzu showroom in Hyderabad today and saw the newly launched commercial double cab D-Max version. It looks almost similar to V-Cross but a little low-end on creature comforts. The new double cab doesn't come with 4x4 or Auto-AC. Same 2.5 Ltr engine but produces only 78 horse power. I can't find it on their website but you got to take a look at it before you decide anything. It's simply amazing. I feel so good for our commercial segment people that they are finally getting some good stuff.

Oh and the most amazing thing about it that every owner or prospective owner of V-Cross is going to be so jealous about. It comes with gray/black interiors

Didn't click pictures as I am little introvert

Thanks bordeaux, and completely agree with your sentiment About the pics, no worries. I saw the D-Max Double Cab version already on Team-BHP. Looked sweet. I tried convincing dad as well to go for the D-Max Double Cab version after he told me the OTR for the V-Cross would come close to 18 Lakhs here in Assam.

Buying something so expensive like the V-Cross to haul and carry goods only seemed like a terrible idea to me. I thought it would be better to go for the D-Max Double Cab instead. Thankfully dad agreed, but still in between two minds. Hope he doesn't buy the V-Cross on an impulse and later rue his decision, like he did with our new car - The (Old) Innova 2012 model that he bought 2 months back for 14.5 Lakhs OTR

Hey thanks for the review. I have a few questions.

1. Have you faced any issues with traffic police / check post since it is a pick up?

2. Is the car allowed at airport without having to park in the commercial parking area? (the fees are heavy for that)

3. Any other issue from authorities point of view since it is a pick up?

I am in the process of paying the booking amount for the same and wanted to clear a few things before I do. Also how much did the steel rims cost? Did you exchange the original alloys?

Your reply would be highly appreciated.

Anyone else who can help regarding the above please contribute.

Thanks.

None whatsoever. I did a 1000 km drive in my first week and did not get stopped anywhere.

Don't know yet. But all tolls charged as per private car rates.

3. Any other issue from authorities point of view since it is a pick up?

None

I would like to know too

I have booked the V-cross along with the D-box, Blaupunkt GPS Music system, bug deflector and side step. Further the Scheduled delivery is on Dussera. The color choice is Grey and if not available Silver.

I am taking Insurance on my own, the cost difference is whooping INR 30000/- when I take from HDFC for Zero Dep.

I'll soon Join the V-Cross club.

Default Buying ISUZU D MAX V CROSS

I have recently checked out the Isuzu D Max V Cross, which looks impressive. However the only show stopper at present is the reliability of their after sales support, since Isuzu been a new entrant. I could not find any ownership reviews on the forum. Looking forward to receiving more information from existing users/ experts on this vehicle and cost of ownership.

Got RaceChip fitted today, it has totally changed the behaviour. It pulls in 3rd gear as if it's 2nd or 1st. Though it's early but as of now looks worth every paisa. I got mine from the US but they have a National Distributor in Delhi. Apparently 30% Jump in torque & BHP

The delivery is scheduled for 11th October. The total landed cost OTR Thane is INR 15,24,371/-. The insurance amount of INR 64,225/- will be deducted which I am getting done through HDFC for INR 45,000/-

The D-Box is costing 1 lac, the music system with rear camera is INR 40,000/- and the bug guard is INR 4000/-.

Congrats tazmaan. I suggest you research a bit more before zeroing on the d-box. There are better options available. Understand what your requirement for the rear carriage is before deciding on this. DBox cannot carry taller luggage.

Which model of Blaupunkt? Suggest you look at Pioneer models once. I installed F80BT along with rear camera and parking sensors. Everything including steering controls work perfectly. This sits between the Sandiego and Capetown.

Insurance I did the same but from Reliance general and got a 33k difference. Look at the illuminated scuff plate too. Looks cool and will be useful because of the beige floor.

All the best.

Thanks for the update. Can you send me pics of your installation? After a lot of thinking I decided to go for D-box also found out the possibility to remove it during applications where I need vertical space which will be very occasional in my case. I can't recall the model number from blaupunkt but its the GPS enabled one which was available on flipkart for 32000/-. With camera and installation I found 40000/- to be ok.

Hi Patron,

I am also considering the Isuzu Dmax and am not too happy with the D-Box option. I am looking for the something like the Carryboy Series 7 canopy. Have you explored this option and do you have any idea of the India price for this accessory. I checked with Azad4x4 in Delhi but they have still not launched it yet and could not give an idea of the price. They are planning to import Carryboy products for the Isuzu Dmax Vcross soon.
The Series 7 looks like this:


Regards,
Behemoth
