Isuzu MU-X 2015 is an SUV from the Japanese manufacturer who aim at claiming a significant portion of the current car market. This competitively priced sports-utility-vehicle boasts of hardcore exterior visuals, along with some attractive interior features that will surely grab one’s attention. Isuzu Mu-X 2015 is expected to come in different variants and offer high standard off-road trekking capability, better towing capacity and state of the art technology and utility features that make it one hell of an attractive package to look out for.
Isuzu MU-X 2015: Redesign Exterior and Interior
Like most other SUV’s available in the market, the Isuzu MU-X 2015 also sports an identical look with its aggressive and bold features. The grille is rather large and with an unusual bumper design; this vehicle makes an effort to stand out from the crown. This seven seater vehicle offers ample space and comfort for its passengers owing to its large size and can easily accommodate 6 footers with ease. Overall, the design has been made keeping the focus on passenger’s comfort. The rugged exteriors especially complement the cars various functionality traits such as off-road driving and heavy towing.
Interior decor leaves something more to be desired, as it comes with a not so enticing leather seats and an unadjustable steering wheel. While the design is unique and features some very interesting ideas, we feel that the new Isuzu MU-X would have been a much better vehicle with some added improvements. In its rear side, there is decent legroom and headroom, but its front does not get the same treatment. Thus, it can be slightly comfortable for the driver, in the long run.
There is a central touch screen that functions as per our expectations and makes the control of various utilities an easy and fun task. There are two power outlets for charging, both of them being in the front. The audio system is good enough for our liking, but we wish the buttons of the volume control were slightly more responsive.
Isuzu MU-X 2015: Engine Specs
Under the hood, the Isuzu MU-X 2015 boasts a 3.0 litre 4-cylinder diesel engine that is capable of steering through the most roughest of roads. It is a bit noisy for most parts, but we doubt it is of a magnitude that will likely cause a headache. The standard output of this unit is around 130kW and 380Nm. It is paired with a 5-speed automatic transmission and generally has decent fuel consumption. It is on the lower side of double digits on highway drives, and sometimes dips below 10 mpg for city streets. The car has a towing capacity of up to 3000 kg.
Isuzu MU-X 2015: Release Date and Price
Isuzu MU-X 2015 does offer certain advantages when it comes to off-roading and towing capabilities, but there are some aspects that the car manufacturer could have improved upon. Release date is yet unknown, but we expect it to become available in later parts of 2015. Expect to dish out around $ 52 000 for this car.
