Isuzu aerodynamically grille design tops!

Invigorating, especially on gravel road. The all new Isuzu Double Cab KB.

Last year, it spruced up it iconic KB model with more refinements suited for off road, that’s if you’re not a City bugger!

So, we took some stuff and loaded them onto this new beau (for a test drive of course) and the ride was seamless.

Improved features: new head and tail-lights, improved suspension, new technology (reversing camera and revised instrument cluster). Awesome.

Isuzu claims a combined cycle fuel consumption of 7.9-litres/100km for 4×4 double cab and extended cab models, dropping to 7.7-litres for the 4×2 versions, that’s if you’re keen in getting one. Sure, you should…

Fitted with leather interior, the auto KB model boasted new front fascia design including changes to bonnet, radiator grille and fog lamps; new headlamps with projector and integrated LED day time running lights on LX models; new tailgate styling on extended and double cab models; reversing camera integrated to tailgate handle on LX double cab models; 4×4 decal on load box; LX models get stylish new 18″ alloy wheels; New 16″ styled wheel for rest of the range; new instrument cluster design with improved functionality and gear shift indicator for auto manual models.

Leather interior design. This speaks volume-so does its features.

Combined with passive entry, the engine Stop/Start button means you’ll never have to use the keys, its available on LX Double Cab models.

Yes, Toyota Hilux and Ford Ranger (LCV rivals) are still competitors and having sold only 988 units (Isuzu) in 2016 as opposed to 3063 by Hilux, this rivalry is far from over, stru!

With this make-over Isuzu this could chase its rival’s targets.
