- New black upholstery elevates driving experience
The locally-engineered and built Isuzu KB has received subtle cosmetic updates, following constructive feedback from loyal Isuzu customers from around South Africa.
Isuzu Brand Manager at General Motors South Africa (GMSA), Mlungisi Nonkonyana, says: “We constantly strive to improve our products and with the added advantage of the sixth-generation Isuzu KB being developed, engineered and built for South Africans in South Africa, we are able to introduce updates with quick turnaround times for maximum effect.
“The subtle new tweaks to the Isuzu KB are all geared at enhancing visual appeal and creating a better driving experience.”
Available from mid-September 2014, the updates include a new overhead storage compartment including a sunglasses holder on LX extended cab and double cab models, and on LE and LX models, new Anthracite Grey upholstery moves the interior ambience more upmarket.
LE models now feature a more striking Anthracite Grey radiator grille and a black rear bumper as well. The LX double cab now features a chrome lockable tailgate handle, and all models now feature a centre-high-mounted stop lamp.
“The changes are now reflected on a streamlined range of 18 Isuzu KB derivatives, all powered by our renowned diesel engines,” concludes Nonkonyana.
All Isuzu KB models are sold with a fully-comprehensive 5-year/ 120 000 km warranty and roadside assistance programme, a 5-year/ unlimited mileage anti-corrosion warranty and a 5-year/ 90 000 km service plan. Service intervals are 15 000 km or twelve months for all derivatives.
