Isuzu MU-X facelift model will retain the 3.0 L engine from the current model, but it will be updated to meet BSVI emission norms
Isuzu is going to introduce the MU-X facelift tomorrow in India and the company has taken some time to introduce the updated model as global debut took place last year. The MU-X will be priced aggressively in the market to take on the established rivals like Toyota Fortuner and Ford Endeavour.
The exterior changes include a bold new front grille along with an updated bumper and fog lamp housing also gets a new design. Isuzu has also given LED DRLs in the projected headlamps cluster and the side design continues to be the same except for the new multi-spoke alloy wheels. The MU-X gets LED tail lamps and a new bumper at the rear.
We can expect the company to introduce a couple of new colours to give a refreshed feel. The interior also comes with some changes as the all-black theme has been replaced by new black-beige dual tone colour. The MU-X comes with wood finish on door pads and dashboard.
The company has also given silver finish on the steering wheel and centre console. The 7-inch touchscreen system of old model has been replaced with a new 8-inch unit and it comes with connectivity options like Bluetooth and phone pairing and the system could get Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
Isuzu has also updated the features list as the new model comes with leather seats, climate control, cruise control, push-button start, keyless entry, automatic headlamps, reverse parking sensors, multi-function steering wheel and more. The company has also focused on safety as MU-X gets dual airbags, ABS, EBA, Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Traction Control System, Hill Start Assist and more.
Globally the company is offering MU-X with 1.99 L and 2.5 L diesel engines. But reports have confirmed that the India-spec model continues the 3.0 L engine from the current model and it will be updated to meet BSVI emission norms. The power and torque might increase slightly and it will be mated to a 5-speed auto with the four-wheel drive system.
