As reported earlier Isuzu is set to launch its SUV MU-X in India next month, however it has been spotted without camouflage before the official launch, giving an idea on what can be expected from the Japanese brand's latest installment. The car featured in the images, posted by TeamBHP, may be the top end variant of the MU-X, as it features automatic transmission, touch screen infotainment system, start stop button, steering mounted controls, leather seats, leather wrapped driver arm rest and 17 or 18 inch diamond cut alloy wheels.
On the outside, the MU-X gets projector headlamps with fog lamps, roof rails, chrome plated ORVMs at the front. At the rear, it gets new LED tail lamps. Although, the power figures are not confirmed yet, it is expected the SUV come with a 3.0-litre turbo diesel engine that produces 175 hp of power and 380 Nm of torque. The engine may get a six speed manual or automatic transmission. The company is also likely to introduce a 1.9-litre engine later. The SUV may get an all-wheel-drive system, as well as a 4x2 configuration.
The seven-seater MU-X measures 5,020mm in length, 1,860mm in width and 1,785mm in height, and has a wheelbase of 3,095mm. It has a ground clearance of 225mm and gets a fuel tank of 76 litres. The MUX-7 is expected to be launch at a price range of Rs 24-28 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) and will compete with the likes of Ford Endeavour.
