Powering the Isuzu MU-7 is a 3.0 litre diesel engine which 161 bhp of peak power and 333 Nm of peak torque. This engine is mated to a 5-speed automatic transmission. The MU-7 does not get a four wheel drive variant so power is supplied only to the rear wheels. The manual version returns an ARAI certified mileage of 12.08 kpl which means the mileage figures for the automatic variant could be slightly less than that.
Along with the addition of an automatic transmission, Isuzu has also tweaked the interiors a little bit so now you get-
- A two-tone dashboard finished in black and beige with wood inserts.
- New three-spoke steering wheel with audio controls.
- Touchscreen infotainment system with built-in GPS
- The touchscreen display also doubles up as the screen for the reverse parking camera.
Commenting on the introduction of the model, Mr. Naohiro Yamaguchi, Managing Director, Isuzu Motors India, said, “We are happy to add the new MU-7 AT variant to our current product portfolio. The MU-7 is becoming popular with its combination of style and substance and has been receiving encouraging response from the customers, thanks to the sheer performance, space and comfort it offers. In line with ISUZU’s philosophy to constantly study the market and offer customers a great experience, we now add the new Automatic Transmission variant with more enhanced features on the interior.
