Isuzu Motors South Africa has tweaked specification levels in its D-Max LS single cab series by adding new safety, comfort and convenience features including halogen fog lamps and cruise control.

The mirrors also gains power adjustment and a seven-inch infotainment screen that incorporates Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility for seamless smartphone integration is now standard.

The very best in pre-owned Isuzu D-Max variants - pick the perfect one for your needs.

Safety features shared with the rest of the D-MAX Single Cab line-up includes anti-lock brakes with EBD and BAS, Electronic Stability Control with Traction Control, Hill Start Assist, Hill Descent Control, Trailer Sway Control, as well as dual front crash bags.

“We adopted a staggered introduction of our seventh-generation D-MAX range and are delighted to now be adding the LS models to our Single Cab line-up for MY23,” says Kevin Fouche, department executive: Product Planning and Programme Management at Isuzu Motors South Africa.

“While the L series fulfils the need for a trusted, hard-working vehicle without too many frills, the LS steps things up by giving our customers additional styling, comfort and convenience features.”

As with the L models, the 1.9 Ddi LS can be specified in High Rider 4x2 guise paired with the choice of six-speed manual or automatic transmissions, or a 4x4 model with the six-speed automatic. The 1.9 Ddi four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine produces 110 kW of power at 3 600 r/min, matched to 350 Nm of torque from 1 800 r/min to 2 600 r/min.

There is the option of the 3.0 Ddi LS Single Cab – also available in 4x2 or 4x4, both of which are mated to the six-speed automatic transmission. The 3,0-litre turbo-diesel engine delivers 140 kW at 3 600 r/min and peak torque of 450 Nm between 1 600 r/min and 2 600 r/min.

Isuzu has introduced several specification upgrades across the Extended and Double Cab models with running boards now fitted as standard on L models.

The LSE models get partial leather seats as standard equipment, including eight-way power adjustment for the driver and front passenger seats.

The far side crash bag, which was previously only offered on V-Cross derivatives is now included on the LSE models and this centre-mounted crash bag prevents the front seat occupants’ heads from contacting each other in a collision.

Comfort and convenience have also been elevated with the addition of Remote Engine Start which has been introduced as a running change on the Isuzu LSE, V-Cross and Arctic models in the D-MAX range.
