ISUZU Motors India has released the next-gen MU-X facelift in the country. The facelifted version of the model is introduced with a few remarkable exterior modifications and all-new updated features, to make it distinct from the previous variant. Although, the company has not changed the engine and power of the vehicle so it will offer the same performance which will surely not affect the sales.
The 2018 Isuzu MU-X is now outfitted with the latest grille at the front. The front fascia has also got a couple of bold headlamps with projector lens and LED DRL’s which makes the SUV more dynamic. It has got the new front bumper and energetic fog lamp setup highlighting dark chrome lines above it.
Some more changes include the brand-new dual five-spoke alloy wheels and improved rear integrated with new taillights, new stylish bumper and a wider roof spoiler. The new exterior updates make the SUV more stylish and bold. The design of the MU-X SUV is inspired by the popular D-Max Pick-up truck that is developed in a Chevrolet Trailblazer-based platform. The 2018 MU-X will substitute the MU-7 in the global market.
In terms of interior, the SUV looks somewhat the same to the existing version although, some new updates include new upholstery for the seats, innovative twin-shade detailing, and faux wood decorations. The dash is now equipped with a latest feature-packed touchscreen infotainment system on the dash.
The company has also offered some high-level safety features in the vehicle which includes six airbags, Hill Descent Control, and Bi-LED Auto-levelling projector headlamps. These new additions are present as standard on all the variants. It will rival against the likes of Toyota Fortuner, Ford Endeavor and the forthcoming XUV700.
The new MU-X draws power from the same 3.0-litre diesel engine which is capable of generating 174bhp of power and 380 Nm of peak torque. The engine is combined with a 5-speed automatic gearbox. The company is also expected to introduce an engine with small figures which will be developed to satisfy the upcoming BS-VI emission norms in the country.
The 2018 Isuzu MU-X facelift is available in the Indian market at Rs 26.34 lakh for the 4×2 variant and Rs 28.31 lakh for the top specs 4×4 version (all prices ex-showroom, Delhi).
