Isuzu D-MAX Reviews

  • The current generation Isuzu D-Max made its debut way back in 2011. 

    The model received a number of updates throughout its life-span, including in 2019 when it received the new 1.9-litre turbodiesel engine.

    While the D-Max may not be the most sophisticated or the most powerful in its segment, it is perhaps the most durable and reliable one of the bunch.

    It is priced between RM 78,900 to RM 104,000, cheaper than other segment rivals.

  • Dashboard

    Compared to its rivals, the Isuzu D-Max's dashboard is far more utilitarian - it's mostly made out of hard plastics. The saing grace is some soft touch materials on the passenger side.

    Space and Practicality

    Surprising as it may sound, the Isuzu D-Max's interior practicality isn't the best out there. Storage space in front of the gear shifter is awfully limited, but at least it gets a storage space above the head unit. With the driver seat set at a standard 25 cm gap with the steering column, the passengers at the rear still have sufficient (3 tennis balls) legroom.


    The truck bed of the Isuzu D-Max comes in two different sizes, as the D-Max Single Cab has a larger truck bed than the Double Cab.

    Lesser variants of the Isuzu D-Max make do with fabric seats.

    During our tests, the Isuzu D-Max completed the 0-100 km/h sprint in 12.7 seconds.

    Engine Performance

    The new 1.9-litre produces sufficient power to propel the 1.8-tonne pick-up truck, but won't be outrunning other pick-up trucks.

    If you need more power, the D-Max 3.0 should be a better option.

    Transmission Performance

    The new 6-speed automatic in 1.9-litre variants of the D-Max offers smooth shifts, albeit on the slow side of things.

    There is also a manual mode for those who need it. 

    Steering and Handling

    The Isuzu D-Max's steering is heavy and lacks feedback.

  • Sound Proofing

    The Isuzu D-Max's cabin is far from being the quietest in the segment. At 110 km/h, the cabin registered 70 dB. The Ford Ranger's cabin, on the other hand, registered just 63 dB at identical speeds.

    Passenger Comfort

    The front suspension is tuned on the soft side and it shows - the D-Max soaks up road irregularities with relative ease, but leans quite a bit in corners.

  • Fuel Consumption

    This where the Isuzu D-Max truly shines. During our time with it, the D-Max returned 8.0-litre/100 km, making it one of the most fuel-efficient pick-up trucks you can buy today.

  • Where the Isuzu D-Max loses to the competition in output figures, it makes up for it in durability and reliability. Couple that with the new fuel-sipping 1.9-litre turbodiesel, the D-Max is an excellent choice for those who need a dependable workhorse, but those who want a lifestyle truck should look elsewhere.
