7 Mars 2017 - IndianAutosBlog
Following its launch in Thailand last month, Headlight Mag has managed to sample the 2017 Isuzu MU-X (facelift) and have clicked a gallery of images that offer a closer look.
It is now on sale in Thailand at prices ranging between THB 1.099 million (Rs 1.112 M) to THB 1.474 million (Rs 1.492 M).
Changes made to the exterior include new LED headlamps with a pair of LED DRL strips each, re-designed front bumper, new 18-inch six twin-spoke alloy wheels shod with 255/60 R18 tires, and LED-powered taillights. To celebrate Isuzu's 60th anniversary of sales and operations in Thailand, all examples will have a commemorative badge on the tailgate.
The premium quotient of the interior has increased, now featuring a dual tone beige and black dashboard, beige leather upholstery for the seats, armrest and door cards, silver trim on the steering wheel and center console, as well as faux wood trim on the dashboard, gear lever and door cards. Also new is an 8-inch touchscreen head unit with smartphone mirroring options, which replaces the old Kenwood system.
Under the hood, the new MU-X can be had with a RZ4E-TC 1.9-litre four-cylinder diesel engine that produces 110 kW (150 PS) and 350 Nm of torque, or the 4JJ1-TCX 3.0-litre four-cylinder diesel engine with 130 kW (177 PS) and 380 Nm of torque. A 6-speed manual is standard in the 1.9L variant, while a 6-speed Rev Tronic automatic can be equipped in both variants.
