As for the Indian market, we might get a 2.5-litre turbo-diesel engine which will generate 136bhp of power and 320Nm of torque. The engine options that are offered internationally might be introduced in our country at a much later stage.
The new Isuzu MU-X will own redesigned headlamps, well complimented large horizontal grille slats, projector units with LED-daytime running lamps, re-designed bumper for freshness, and attractive 18-inch alloy wheels.
The interiors of the vehicle gets a new eight-inch infotainment screen with iConnect feature along with navigation and smartphone connectivity. The normal equipment list includes steering mounted controls, climate control, six-way seat adjustment and six speakers.
The Isuzu MU-X is a premium SUV that holds modern designed features along with advanced technological equipment. It has a good on-road presence, well-complemented projector headlamps, fog lamps and a chrome radiator grille. It also owns a ground clearance of 230mm that add to its advantage while it has to tackle crazy Indian roads.
The wrap-around windshield at the back adds to the SUV`s classy finish. The flared wheel-arches and roof rails give it a sporty look. The roof rails too have a capability of carrying 60 kilograms of cargo. On the mechanical side, the Isuzu MU-X will be available in many variants to the Indian market.
