Updated Isuzu MU-X specifics
The updated Isuzu MU-X gets a new grille, different design for the headlamps and 18-inch fresh alloys. Inside, soft touch materials have been used and more creature comforts have been added. In terms of safety, the MU-X now gets six airbags along with Hill Ascend and Descend assist, ESP, ABS with EBD and brake assist. The seven seater MU-X has one of the most comfortable third row seats. Access to these are via buttons on the second row. The tail gate also opens electrically. Ventilation for the third and second row is through AC vents on the roof.
There is no change to the updated Isuzu MU-X’s mechanicals. The 3.0-litre variable geometry turbo diesel produces 178PS of power and 380Nm of torque. A 5-speed automatic transmission is standard. Power is sent to the rear wheels. In the 4×4, there is a shift on fly option in the cabin. Isuzu also offers cruise control for this body-on-frame SUV.
For the MU-X, Isuzu is offering a unique warranty program. This includes 5 years/1.5 lakh km warranty or 5 years free services. If one is buying the vehicle on loan, then they can continue paying EMIs for 36 months or sell the vehicle to someone else who can continue paying the EMIs. Isuzu says that they sold around 5,000 vehicles last year and aim to achieve around 40 per cent growth this year. The Sri City plant is likely to be ramped up for the increased demand. The MU-X competition includes the Fortuner and Endeavour.
