HOLDEN COLORADO 7
Three-year/100,000km warranty and $295 capped servicing for the first three years or 60,000km, at 15,000km or 9 month intervals. Features include Bluetooth phone and audio link, 16-inch alloys, trip computer, cruise control, leather-wrapped steering wheel, full-size spare (and USB port), 12V outlets for passengers and in cargo bay. It has side steps.
VERDICT Agricultural engines, old-school road manners, genuine off-road ability and seating for seven are common to both. Do you want Isuzu’s five-year warranty or Holden’s peace-of-mind servicing?
