What Van? Award Goes to Isuzu D-Max

Written by Molly

The new generation Isuzu D-Max has been awarded What Van? Pick-Up of The Year for 2018 with the title praising both its substance and style.

Launched in 2017, the Isuzu D-Max emerged victorious, beating strong competition from rivals in a highly-contested sector.

Judges were impressed by the economy and refinement of the new 164 PS turbo diesel engine, a step up from the previous model that improves performance and builds upon the Isuzu D-Max’s workhorse character.

Retaining the 3.5 tonne towing capacity and over 1 tonne payload, the new generation Isuzu D-Max was praised for providing a quieter, more economical driving experience. The new 1.9L turbo engine also meets Euro 6 standards without the need for the addition of AdBlue, unlike most of the Isuzu D-Max’s competitors.

What impressed the judges about the D-Max?

The breadth of the Isuzu D-Max range also impressed judges; with single, extended and double-cab formats available, as well as a wide choice of trim levels. Coupled with the attractive five-year/125,000-mile warranty package and five years’ roadside assistance (in the UK & Europe), the D-MAX proved it was truly built for the professionals who use it.

What Van? Editor and Judge James Dallas said of the win: “Looking for a no-nonsense workhorse that is at home on a farm or building site, yet is not short of creature comforts? Then look no further.”
