Detailed Isuzu DMAX Review

What's Good?

This is the most exciting and fun SUV I have ever driven. I got delivery two weeks back. I am simply loving the ruggedness, power, smoothness of ride on any damn terrain... I made a choice between XUV and Isuzu, and man I have absolutely no regrets. I drove this a couple of times before the purchase and the dealer also allowed me to try it in a off-road event on craziest off-road tracks. This vehicle has tremendous capability and you can straight away take the stock vehicle to extreme off-roading. It in fact loves the bad roads. It also has a great ride on highways. It has tall and commanding driving position and engine is quite smooth and powerful. Seats are comfortable for long journeys, great legroom... Though I have not taken it out for long drives, I know few folks who have recently done cross country road trip and they are extremely happy about the performance and comfort. It looks like a handsome beast and turns lot of heads. Not a single day so far without compliments from strangers coming and asking about the car when they see it. This is a popular vehicle in eastern countries and in Australia and best part is you can do infinite customizations on it just like Jeep or Mahindra Thar. You can upgrade rims to 17", upgrade to all terrain or mud tires, put aa suspension lift kits, add offroad ARB or Ironman bumpers, winch and rear tow hooks... do ECU remapping for additional power... Put fancy LED lightbars or halogen lights and the looks are to drool for... get canopies and lids for the rear pickup tray... You also get Dieseltronics for this car ... Dieseltronics lets you select performance modes like economy, sports etc... This one is the toughest all rounder you can buy in India which can be used to go to your office, city drives, long highway journeys, do river crossings or to tame the extreme mountain terrains... And the large pickup tray on the rear is handy to load your bicycles / tents/ or tons of luggage for your cross country trips... You can get it covered with many soft lid or hard lid options as well... The length and size is huge, but it just takes one or two days to get used to it... Overall I have never been this happy owning a car before... Worth every single dime!

What can improve?

Engine tune-up / ECU mapping for better fuel economy.
