Maximum 5-star safety Image


5-star safety



Every Isuzu D-MAX includes a network of safety features that operate automatically and independently, working tirelessly to protect you. Isuzu’s Intelligent Driver Assistance System◊ (IDAS) technology which encapsulates passive and active safety systems, is standard across every D-MAX model. Using state-of-the-art sensors and multiple cameras, the D-MAX constantly monitors your surrounding environment.



A 5-star ANCAP rating is the pinnacle of safety a vehicle can achieve in Australia. With new and more rigorous testing introduced for 2020, it is now even harder for a vehicle to achieve a 5-star rating. The Isuzu D-MAX and MU-X achieved a 5-star rating against ANCAP’s brutal new testing criteria, making them not only some of Australia’s safest vehicles but Isuzu UTE one of Australia’s safest car brands.


Every D-MAX is packed with built-in active safety features that keep you out of trouble at a moment's notice.

Automatic Bi-LEDs illuminate farther and wider, turning on independently when the D-MAX senses low-light conditions. They also feature LED Day Time Running Lights (DRLs) for extra visibility on the road during the day. (Standard on LS and X-TERRAIN models.)

Lane Driving Features

Lane Departure Prevention Image

Lane Departure Prevention

Lane Departure Prevention is activated if the vehicle is about to depart from the driver's lane. The system assists by steering the vehicle in the correct direction to help prevent lane departure. This feature can also be disabled via the Lane Support System (LSS) Switch.

Emergency Lane Keeping Image

Emergency Lane Keeping

Unique to the D-MAX in the 1 tonne ute market, if there is danger of collision with vehicles approaching from behind in an adjacent lane, the vehicle will help avoid the collision by preventing lane departure. This feature can also be disabled via the Lane Support System (LSS) Switch.

Lane Keep Assist Image

Lane Keep Assist

The Lane Keep Assist (LKA) system is designed to detect road lane markings and assist steering operation by keeping your vehicle in its lane while Adaptive Cruise Control is engaged. (Available on automatic transmission models only.) This feature can also be disabled via the Lane Support System (LSS) Switch.

Lane Support System (LSS) Switch Image

Lane Support System (LSS) Switch

The Lane Support System (LSS) Switch, located on the steering wheel allows the driver to toggle the LSS on-or-off by pressing and holding the Switch for two seconds. The LSS includes Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Lane Departure Prevention (LDP), Emergency Lane Keeping (ELK) and Lane Keep Assist (LKA) on automatic models. Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) will still function regardless if the LKA is disabled via the Switch.
