While the Indian car market is still receiving the second-generation D-Max V-Cross, Isuzu has recently launched the facelifted version of the third-generation D-Max V-Cross in Thailand. The new Isuzu D-Max V-Cross comes with a host of visual changes on the exterior and a refreshed interior featuring new contemporary comfort, convenience, and safety features. This update marks the first revision to the third-generation D-Max V-Cross since its initial launch in 2019.
The new Isuzu D-Max V-Cross boasts a more modern exterior design, highlighted by a redesigned grille with a 3D pattern and updated all-LED headlights featuring boomerang-shaped daytime running LEDs. The front bumper has also been reworked, incorporating new air curtains surrounding the fog lamps.
The side profile of the new Isuzu D-Max V-Cross showcases new 18-inch matte black alloy wheels, while the rear profile reveals redesigned LED taillights and an integrated spoiler. Additional visual enhancements include plastic cladding around the grille and aluminium front and rear skid plates.
Inside the cabin of the new Isuzu D-Max V-Cross, you’ll find a refreshed dual-tone black and brown leather upholstery. The vehicle also introduces new features such as a 7-inch full-TFT instrument console and a 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system. The cabin has been equipped with new USB-C charging ports for both front and rear passengers, along with a remote engine start function.
A significant addition to the new Isuzu D-Max V-Cross is the next-generation stereo camera, which enhances the functionalities of the Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) offered on board. This camera allows the D-Max V-Cross’s ADAS to more accurately detect oncoming pedestrians and vehicles, improving the overall effectiveness of the system. Additionally, for improved performance in low-temperature conditions, this stereo camera features a heating element around its lens. The manual version of the D-Max V-Cross now includes adaptive cruise control as well.
The facelifted third-generation Isuzu D-Max V-Cross continues to offer two four-cylinder diesel engine options: a 1.9-liter diesel engine (producing 150 PS and 350 Nm) for lower-spec variants and a 3.0-liter diesel engine (producing 190 PS and 450 Nm) for higher-spec variants. It is available with 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic transmissions, along with the added option of an on-demand four-wheel-drive system. For improved traction on rough terrains, the D-Max V-Cross now features a new rough terrain mode.
In the Indian market, Isuzu still offers the second-generation D-Max V-Cross, while the third-generation model has been available in other Asian markets since 2019. As of now, there is no official information regarding the arrival of this facelifted third-generation D-Max V-Cross in India.
