The Isuzu mu-X is the sole SUV from the brand's stable and the flagship offering from the Japanese carmaker’s portfolio. The vehicle takes on the established entry-level full-size SUVs in the market now. The nameplate mu-X is an acronym for the “Mysterious Utility eXtreme." This SUV offering from Isuzu is a practical and perfect vehicle in the Philippines. The Isuzu mu-X is a car you can use in your daily drive with your family or for a quick out-of-town trip.

This SUV is loaded with storage options. It also offers a pliant riding experience with a Terrain command system for models with a 4x4 configuration. Passengers of the Isuzu mu-X get to enjoy the benefit of premium touchscreen mounted on the roof. It also has a DVD player at the rear measuring 10 inches, which comes as a standard for all variants in the lineup.

Isuzu offers the mu-X with two engine options – a 3.0-liter and a 1.9-liter turbo-diesel engine. Both engines feature Blue Power technology and Euro 4 compliant. The smaller engine is the replacement of the older 2.5-liter power plant.

The 1.9L power plant produces 148 horsepower and 350 Nm of torque. The bigger 3.0L engine pumps out 174 horsepower and 380 Nm of torque.

Isuzu MU-X is available in five color options, namely Obsidian Grey, Red Spinel, Cosmic Black, Silky Pearl White, and Titanium Silver.

Launch

Isuzu Philippines launched the mu-X in the local market in September 2014 with a pair of diesel engine options. It became an instant hit in the Philippine market, especially that it comes in a midsize seven-seater SUV layout.  The Isuzu MU-X is a worthy substitute for the MU-7 or the Alterra, and it comfortably filled in the shoes.

When the Isuzu mu-X was initially launched, it was only offered in the 2.5L engine. A year later, the Japanese carmaker introduced mu-X trims equipped with a 3.0L engine, which contribute to the vehicle's rocket high increase in sales. In 2017, the Japanese carmaker introduced a new trim with a 1.9L engine, which is better than the 2.5L but still provides better fuel efficiency.

In the Philippine automobile industry, the Isuzu mu-X competes against the likes of the Ford Everest, Toyota Fortuner, Mitsubishi Montero, among others.
