Ford Endeavour and Toyota Fortuner are some of the popular luxury SUVs currently sold in the country. These two SUVs rule this segment and some of the other competitors in this segment are Mahindra Alturas, recently launched MG Gloster and Isuzu MU-X. Isuzu MU-X is a luxury SUV and it has remained more or less the same, ever since it was introduced in our market. Things are about to change as Isuzu has now revealed the all-new MU-X in Thailand and the same is expected to launched in the Indian market next year.
The all new Isuzu MU-X continues to be a 7-seater SUV like other in the segment. A lot of changes have been done to the SUV to give it a fresh look. Overall, MU-X continues to have a butch or imposing look at the front. The front grille has been heavily redesigned with a lot of chrome elements in it.
The headlights now look sleeker and now come LED lights in them. DRLs are also integrated inside the same unit. The bumper has been too and it now looks a lot more sharper than before. Moving to the side profile, the design has been improved a lot. The 20 inch alloy wheels with new design and the new window line all give it a premium feel. There is an Isuzu badge on the boot and tail lights are all LED units. Just like at the front, the rear bumper also looks muscular and has a silver skid plate at the bottom.
On the inside, it is expected to get a bigger touchscreen infotainment screen, dual tone interiors, ambient lighting, electronic parking brake, dual zone climate control, multi function steering wheel, premium audio system and so on. The Isuzu will also offer features like adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring system, lane keep assist, 6 airbags and so on. We are not sure how many of these features would be there in the Indian version.
MU-X will be available with a 3.0 litre diesel engine that generates 190 Bhp and 450 Nm of torque. A 1.9 litre diesel engine might also be available with the SUV. It will be available with an automatic and manual gearbox options and both 4×4 and 4×2 options will be available depending upon the trim levels.
