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.
