Isuzu has updated their pickup truck, the V-Cross, with a few added features and two trims with the price tag of Rs 14.31 lakhs for the standard trim and Rs 15.82 lakhs for the High trim, ex-showroom Delhi.
Since this is a model year upgrade, the styling hasn’t changed but the new V-Cross now gets LED daytime running lamps and LED tail lamps to add a dose of premium. It also gets electronic stability control (ESC) and a traction control system (TCS) to help maintain stability for on-road as well as off-road driving. Along with better looks and wider safety net, the new V-Cross gets a six-way electrically adjustable driver seat along with cruise control to add to the convenience.
The adventure utility vehicle retains its potent 2.5-litre turbocharged diesel engine that develops 134bhp of power and the healthy 320Nm of torque. Four-wheel drive is standard on the V-Cross along with a five-speed manual gearbox that works in harmony with a chassis and suspension setup versatile enough to serve well both on and off the road.
You can also buy the D-Max V-Cross in a new shade of red apart from the existing options of brown, black, silver, grey and white. There is no real competition to the V-Cross, but if you consider the price point, you can get hold of a Mahindra Scorpio or an XUV 500, the Tata Safari along with the Hyundai Creta, Renault Captur and the Nissan Terrano.
