Isuzu MU-X: 2020 Update!
Ah, the Isuzu Mu-X. Just like the Isuzu D-Max that It’s based on, it’s been around since 2013 with mostly updates to keep it fresh.
Despite that, however, this SUV remains one of the most popular here in the Philippines due to its robustness.
Recently, Isuzu Philippines Corporation gave the Isuzu Mu-X another update and despite being very subtle about it, we’re definite than many of Isuzu’s fans will welcome the changes made. It’s not a facelift though but a significant update nonetheless.
