  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.

  2. Are you serious when coming on the pricing part, MuX is nothing close to the Ford End or Toyota Fortuner not in style or in dimension and pricing it at 23 Lacks is a very bad decision.

    Lets be really practical with the branding part in India, how many people really know ISUZU probably 7% who have traveled out of India might have a fare idea about the name of the company.

    Therefore I believe if the pricing would have been placed in the range of 11-16 Lacks, still the Indian market which has now become very alert on what and how to buy would really at least put some efforts in raising their eye brows for some good competition.

  3. I bought this 4×4 mux a month back from paramount isuzu New Delhi but not happy with the product at all from the very first day there is lot of vibration in my vehicle and the gear box doesn’t repond so good lot of noise from the front fan. The car have been to the workshop 10 times and till date the problem is not rectified poor service network the dealer doesn’t have good technical staff the mechanics came all the way from chennai to fix the car. The dealer is a big fraud said registration charges are going to be rs.338124/- and handing me over receipt from transportation department for amount of rs.331175/- said rest are file charges. Tel me what to do should I take them to consumer court . I am very disappointed with the service.
