The Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP) has awarded a five-star safety rating to the Isuzu D-MAX ute and the Isuzu MU-X seven-seater SUV. This rating applies to all 4x4 D-MAX crew cab variants built from November 2013, all 4x2 D-MAX crew cab high ride variants built from November 2014 and all MU-X models.
“This is a great result for the company as we head into an exciting new chapter of our short history here in Australia,” said Isuzu UTE Australia’s Managing Director Yasuhiro Takeuchi.
"More and more businesses in the light commercial market are demanding maximum safety for their employees and contractors through safer vehicles – so today’s announcement will re-open some doors for us in the new year that have been held ajar pending today’s results.
"The five-star ANCAP award for our new MU-X SUV also illustrates our safety commitment to families and 4WD enthusiasts with our foray into the passenger vehicle market," Mr Takeuchi added.
