The highly anticipated new Isuzu D-Max bakkie has gone on sale in SA in a range of 24 models comprising single cab, extended cab and double cab guises.

The high series models offer a smart and sophisticated cabin with soft-touch materials, and a touchscreen infotainment system is offered in 7-inch or 9-inch sizes depending on model.

All versions come standard with ABS brakes, stability control and trailer sway control, while the range-topping V-Cross boasts driver assist systems like adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, a parking aid, and a multi collision brake that automatically applies the brakes when the airbags are deployed.
