Adult occupant

The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal impact. Dummy readings indicated only marginal protection for the driver's chest, knees and lower legs. The Isuzu D-max scored maximum points for the protection it provided in the side barrier test. The front seat and head restraint provided good protection against whiplash injuries in a rear-end collision.

Child occupant

The passenger airbag could not be deactivated to allow for placement of a rearward facing child restraint on the front passenger seat. Permanently attached labels on the sun visor clearly warn of the dangers of using a rearward facing child seat in that position without first disabling the airbag.


In those areas likely to be struck by a pedestrian's lower leg, the protection was good. The front edge of the bonnet offered poor protection, which is where a pedestrian's upper leg would contact. In most areas likely to be struck by the head of a child and an adult, the protection was mostly marginal and poor.

Safety assist

Electronic stability control is standard and met Euro NCAP's requirements. There is a seatbelt reminder system for the driver and passenger, but not for the rear seats. The Isuzu D-max is not available with a speed limitation device.
