2017 Isuzu MU X India Review – Exterior Design

Isuzu recently unveiled an updated version of the MU-X for Thailand. It features a new front bumper. There is a slightly modified grille along with some chrome applique around the fog lamp area. The headlamps get LED daytime running lamps along with projector units. At the back, the MU-X gets restyled bumpers along with LED detailing for the tail lamps. There aren’t any major changes, apart from new alloys wheels. The side profile of the MU-X bears very strong resemblance to the Chevrolet Trailblazer. That is because both SUVs share the same platform.

On the inside, the resemblance to the Trailblazer and V-Cross is stronger. The centre console features a touchscreen unit with vertical AC vents on either side. Placed below the touchscreen is a circular setup for the automatic climate control. Unlike the Trailblazer, the MU-X features a much simpler looking instrument console. The Thai-spec model seen in the images here features a black beige colour scheme along with faux wood inserts. India-spec MU-X is likely to get a similar treatment. The cabin also features leather seats and seating for 7 occupants.

  1. its tuff time for MUX until they offer competitive price in the segment… 19-22 is the killer price and gives tuff compition. More than that ppl will look for the well established and renowned brands in market like ford and Toyota.As trailblazer also offering lesser than 20lak exshowroom and few more SUV like Jeep Compass much awaited entering the segment it’s been really interesting to see.ISUZU as a good player around the world finding tough time in india with less showrooms and less sales… as both are inter related sales is needed for more show rooms
    Hope this time they come up
    With GOOD PRODUCT WITH GOOD PRICE.. are it will be to late if rexton and M&M XUV
    new model lunch is planning at end of the year as M&M is very aggressive in pricing and also the quality of offering is good.
