The Japanese manufacturer Isuzu is set to unveil the brand-new mu-X in Thailand soon
Over the past few weeks, Isuzu has begun releasing a teaser video of the upcoming facelift of its popular Mu-X. The car is set to be unveiled in Thailand in the coming months.
The exterior features restyled front grille, bumper, foglight. All embrace quintessential sports spirit in their design language. The headlight now comes with LED daytime running lights while the side profile is a carryover from the present-day model with the addition of advanced 18-inch wheels. A new color (Havana Brown) also helps update the Mu-X’s looks.
Stepping inside, the interior sees no significant changes compared to its previous version. The inside will get a more premium vibe with brand-new semi-leather seats and more soft touch and wooden materials. There is also a new 8-inch infotainment touchscreen. The instrument cluster has a much cooler look in this version.
Concerning operation, powering the Thai-spec Mu-X comes in two versions of turbo diesel engines: a 3.0-liter and 1.9-liter engine. The former delivers an output of 177hp and 380Nm and is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. The latterproduces 150hp and 350Nm and is mated to either the auto or a six-speed manual box.
The new Mu-X probably has shifted its focus on a more premium kind of midsize SUV buyer. We could have firsthand experiences with the brand-new 2017 Isuzu Mu-X at the upcoming Bangkok International Motor Show. The car will most likely make its way to customer’s shores within the year.
