2016 Isuzu D-Max V-Cross review, test drive

    The Japanese UV maker finally brings one of its current-gen products to India, and it’s a fun and unique, albeit super-niche proposition.

    Should I buy one?

    At Rs 12.91 lakh (ex-showroom, Mumbai), the new D-Max costs nearly twice as much as its predecessor. But then, it’s so much more car for your money. Where the old car was cheaper than its few rivals, this one is more expensive. In a segment that’s already a niche within a niche, a proposition like this had better be a strong one. The D-Max V-Cross is a very good product. There’s never been such a level of creature comforts or space in a pick-up sold in India before, the 4x4 system is properly capable and, with its strong and flexible engine, it really is a jack of all trades. The problem isn’t the car, it’s the segment itself – the people who would walk past an SUV and choose a pick-up instead are few and far between, and the relatively high price doesn’t help matters at all. Still, if you are one of the few in the market for such a vehicle, it is certainly the best of its kind on sale here right now.
