1. Toyota Fortuner V 4x4 AT vs Isuzu mu-X LS-A 4x4 AT: Midsize SUV battle.

Over to interiors, both of these SUVs can comfortably fit up to seven people. Both are spacious and are equipped with automatic climate controls with rear vents, leather seats, and soft-touch surfaces all around. 

Both the Fortuner and the mu-X are generous when it comes to driver amenities. These two SUVs have power-adjustable driver's seats, a push to start button, tilt and telescopic steering columns, and cruise control.

The mu-X's interior is quite comfortable, but it does have this utilitarian look to it.

While the mu-X's second row can tumble like the Fortuner’s, the latter has a center armrest. The weakness of the Toyota made SUV though is its 3rd row that folds sideways on either side of the trunk. That makes loading larger or irregularly shaped things a bit of a hassle. Compare that to the mu-X's third-row which folds flat. Do note however that the Toyota Fortuner V's power tailgate is easier to use than the mu-x's regular tailgate.

In terms of onboard entertainment, both the 2020 versions of the Fortuner V and the Isuzu mu-X LS-A are equipped with touchscreen units that are able to connect via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Both systems also have Bluetooth, USB, and Aux-in. The one aboard the Fortuner though has a built-in call function, as well as audio streaming.

The Fortuner's interior on the other hand is more refined.

The top-of-the-line mu-X’s interior does have one trick up its sleeve. It is equipped with another eight-inch screen that folds in and out above the second row.

The Isuzu made SUV’s main touchscreen unit is also larger at eight inches, while the Toyota SUV’s is a smaller 6.5-inch unit. Both of these touchscreen units can also handle offline navigation, and both are linked to a six-speaker system.
