D-MAX V-Cross Verdict
The V-Cross is the only adventure utility vehicle available in India or at least that's how Isuzu wants to market it. Reasonably so, as lifestyle pick-up trucks still don't have a demand back here. However, this V-Cross has the right potential to create this demand with its mean road presence, go-anywhere capability while providing many utilitarian benefits.
