New to the 2017 Isuzu MU-X's exterior are LED headlamps with a pair of LED DRL strips, sportier front bumper, restyled 18-inch six twin-spoke alloy wheels shod with 255/60 R18 tires, LED-powered taillights and 60th-anniversary badge on the tailgate.
Inside, the new MU-X comes with a dual tone beige and black dashboard, beige leather upholstery for the seats, armrest and door cards, silver garnish on the steering wheel and centre console, as well as faux wood trim. Isuzu has dropped the old Kenwood touchscreen system for a new 8-inch touchscreen head unit with smartphone mirroring options.
Engine options include an RZ4E-TC 1.9-litre four-cylinder diesel engine with 110 kW (150 PS) and 350 Nm of torque and 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.
According to several local reports, the new MU-X will come to India later this year. It will be assembled at Isuzu's new plant in Andhra Pradesh.
