Here is the updated Isuzu MU-X that should come to India

Isuzu, although not frequently in the headlines, has made a significant impact with a substantial update for its MU-X SUV. This update marks a mid-life facelift for the SUV, which was initially launched in 2020.

Design Highlights

The exterior design of the new MU-X is distinguished by a fresh face, new wheels, and an updated front bumper. Additionally, Isuzu has introduced a new top-spec RS variant characterized by dark elements, including a dark paint scheme and wheels, enhancing its overall aesthetic appeal.

Interior and Engine

While the interior layout remains unchanged, the MU-X now features a larger display for the infotainment system. Isuzu has significantly expanded the vehicle’s features, now including a 360-degree camera, connected car technology, and level-2 Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). The SUV is available in six single-tone shades and three dual-tone shades, offering a variety of choices for buyers.

For the Thai market, the MU-X is offered with two diesel engine options: a 1.9-liter diesel engine producing 110bhp and 365Nm of torque, and a 3.0-liter diesel engine producing 140bhp and 450Nm of torque. The transmission options include a six-speed manual transmission and a six-speed torque converter automatic transmission. The top-spec variant also features a 4WD system with a shift-on-the-fly mechanism.

India Launch

The MU-X currently available in India has been in the market for over six years and is starting to show its age. Although it is more affordable than its three-row competitors, it lacks many of the features found in models like the MG Gloster, Toyota Fortuner, and the upcoming Skoda Kodiaq. Introducing this updated MU-X to the Indian market would provide it with a competitive edge in terms of features and could boost Isuzu’s reputation among SUV buyers.

We have reached out to Isuzu India for an official comment and will update this article as soon as we receive a response.

By bringing the updated MU-X to India, Isuzu could revitalize its presence in the SUV segment and attract more buyers with the enhanced features and refreshed design of the new model.
