Isuzu isn't a household name in our country just yet. However, the Japanese automaker is well-known to have developed the engine for the humble Hindustan Ambassador and a wide range of commercial vehicles as well.

Isuzu showcased the D-Max V-Cross at the 2016 Auto Expo. The pick-up truck or 'Adventure Utility Vehicle', as the manufacturer likes to call it, is eligible to be registered as a private vehicle, unlike the older generation. It will be produced at Isuzu's new plant in Sri City, Andhra Pradesh. Sources tell us that the pick-up will be launched at an introductory price of Rs 12.51 lakh (ex-showroom). Pre-launch bookings have commenced, for a token amount of Rs 50,000.

The double-cab pick-up follows an aggressive design tone and features twin-barrel projector headlamps, flared wheel arches, 16-inch wheels and a loading bay large enough to accommodate whatever you throw at it. The interior can house five occupants with ease and has plenty of car-like features to keep them comfortable as well. The list includes a six-way adjustable driver seat, automatic climate control, a touchscreen infotainment system and steering-mounted controls. 

The Isuzu houses a 2.5-litre diesel engine that produces 138PS of power and 320Nm of peak torque. It also gets a shift-on-the-fly 4WD knob that lets the driver switch between 2WD and 4WD on the go. Safety features include Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) and dual airbags.

We think the V-Cross is a fun alternative to regular SUVs. Would you buy one over a Scorpio or a compact SUV like the Duster? Let us know through the comments section below!

While the product looks good, honorable Supreme Court of India is agitated enough to pass another unexpected judgement on private diesel cars' owners! Who knows what comes next out of the SC bench on pollution.
