Used Car Safety Report

The Isuzu Ute D-MAX has been awarded a 5 star Driver Protection rating in the latest Used Car Safety Rating (UCSR) report. UCSR are reported annually by the Monash University Accident Research Centre (MUARC). Ratings are estimated from data on real crashes reported to police in Australia and New Zealand and provide a very high level of confidence. The UCSR report classifies cars according to where their rating lies in relation to a best performance benchmark. The Driver Protection rating measures the relative safety of cars in preventing serious injury to their own drivers in crashes.

Driver Protection Rating

5 Star Driver Protection Excellent
4 Star Driver Protection Good
3 Star Driver Protection Marginal
2 Star Driver Protection Poor
1 Star Driver Protection Very Poor

The Isuzu Ute D-MAX also received a protection for other road users rating in the UCSR report. The protection for other road users rating indicates the level of protection that a vehicle provides for other unprotected road users (other car drivers, pedestrians, bicyclists or motorcyclists) in the event of a crash.

Frontal Offset Test Results

Region Score Score Type Maximum Score
Frontal Offset* 7.51 pts (out of 16)
Head/Neck 4 pts
Chest 0 pts
Upper Legs 2 pts
Lower Legs 1.51 pts

The passenger compartment was moderately deformed in the offset crash test. The brake pedal moved rearwards by 111mm and upwards 13mm. The footwell ruptured. The steering wheel hub moved rearwards 17mm, upwards 45mm and sideways 27mm. The front ("A") pillar moved 40mm rearwards. All doors remained closed during the crash. After the crash tools were required to open the driver’s door.

The airbag cushioned the head of the driver and contact was stable. Steering column components were a potential source of injury for the driver's knees. The passenger's head was cushioned by the airbag and contact was stable. A metal bracket behind the dash was a potential source of injury for the passenger's left knee.

Side Impact Test Results

Region Score Score Type Maximum Score
Side Impact* 16 pts (out of 16)
Head 4 pts
Chest 4 pts
Abdomen 4 pts
Pelvis 4 pts

The side impact test normally used by ANCAP simulates a small car striking the driver's door of the vehicle under test. It is based on a regulation test but the regulation does not apply to vehicles with a high seat height like the D-Max 4x2. Experience shows that such vehicles can be expected to perform well in this test so ANCAP has decided to award full score for these vehicles instead of conducting a crash test. The vehicle was not eligible for a Pole Impact Test since it did not have head-protecting side airbags. This test can earn eligible vehicles an extra two points.

High risk of life-threatening chest injury

The Isuzu D-Max was introduced in Australia during 2008. This assessment is based on crash tests of the equivalent dual cab Holden Rodeo published by ANCAP in 2006. The D-Max has a 3 litre diesel engine. This rating does not apply to single cab versions of the D-Max 4x4.

The D-Max 4x4 scored 5.4 out of 16 in the offset crash test. The passenger compartment held its shape reasonably well. Protection from serious chest injury was poor for the driver and weak for the passenger. Leg protection was marginal for the driver.

The vehicle was awarded a default score of 16 out of 16 in the side impact crash test.


Safety Feature Summary

The safety feature information below is subject to change without notice. For up to date safety feature specifications for all variants, please see the safety feature table to the right or contact the manufacturer.

Safety equipment, as tested, not available on all variants

Dual front airbags are standard equipment on the SX and LS versions but are not available for the EX 4x4. Antilock brakes (ABS) with electronic brakeforce distribution are standard on all SX and LS 4x4 versions but are not available for the EX version. Electronic stability control (ESC) is not available.

A three point seat belt is fitted to the centre rear seat. This provides better protection than a two point seat belt. Child restraint anchorages are fitted behind the rear seat but are difficult to reach. Hazard lights activated during the crash.

Frontal Offset Test Results

Region Score Score Type Maximum Score
Frontal Offset* 5.4 pts (out of 16)
Head/Neck 3 pts
Chest 0 pts
Upper Legs 2 pts
Lower Legs 0.4 pts

The passenger compartment held its shape reasonably well in the offset crash test. The brake pedal moved rearwards by 124mm and upwards 36mm. The footwell ruptured. The steering wheel hub moved rearwards 11mm, upwards 100mm and sideways 11mm. The front ("A") pillar moved 56mm rearwards. The driver's door opened very late in the crash but subsequent investigations revealed it was an isolated incident, not representative of the model and no points were deducted. After the crash the other doors opened with normal effort.

The airbag cushioned the head of the driver and contact was reasonably stable. Steering column components were a potential source of injury for the driver's knees. The passenger's head was cushioned by the airbag and contact was stable.
