Moving on to the Isuzu MU-X Luxe 2018, the Japanese automaker has given its flagship SUV with special fender flares generating gray light. Aside from providing the SUV a tougher look, the newly-added flares enhance protection as they can deflect debris and rocks from the car.

The MU-X Luxe interior is beautified by a 3D surround audio system and fresh scuff plate flashed in blue. It seems that the most noticeable addition to the SUV is the Power Lift Tailgate. With this new feature, motorists can now close and open the car’s tailgate easily to make the loading of cargo simpler by pushing a button.
