  2. Not good and will be a mega LOSER!!
    Dull old school interiors and construction!!
    Only Hydraulic steering and drum brakes in the rear is too bad for 25 lakhs!!
    No climate control and only two airbags!!
    This car is a bull s*** for sure!!

  3. Sandeep says:

    This car really sucks!!! It costs 25 plus lakhs of rupees and offers like cars of 5 lakh range. Just having 2 airbags, drum brake at the rear, outdated interiors. I guess Isuzu engineers just woke up after a hibernation.

    Would love to see a similar download on the D Max too, thanks.

  5. Nikhil says:

    I can see ” MEGA FLOP” written all over this vehicle. It costs close to 30 on road, has an archaic engine, 90’s interiors, non aerodynamic shape, not so good looking bulbous exteriors.

    I guess Isuzu should just stick to making good reliable truck diesel engines

    1. Mr.B says:

      Aerodynamic design is for girls. If you want this, buy a Lexus or a Infinity SUV.

    1. Thank you for pointing that out, we have corrected it now.
