Both the models now come with a multi-information display cluster with gear shift indicator that enables the driver to use the ideal gear in any driving condition ensuring best of the vehicle in terms of torque, fuel management and drivetrain durability.

On the inside, the D-MAX now also gets high-quality fabric upholstery, height adjustable seat belts, as well as sliding co-driver's seat for the comfort of the co-passenger.
