Delhi, May 10 :  Isuzu Motors India launched the much-awaited ISUZU ‘mu-X’ premium full-size 7-seater SUV in India, today. The ISUZU mu-X is powered by a 3.0 litre ISUZU engine and provides a maximum power output of 130 kW (177 PS). It provides a maximum torque of 380 Nm that is designed with a significant flat torque curve.


The mu-X will be offered in both 4x2 and 4x4 variants with a sequential shift Automatic Transmission. The mu-X will be built at ISUZU’s new state-of-the-art manufacturing plant at Sri City in Andhra Pradesh.

The All Muscle – All Heart SUV is a perfect combination for those buyers who seek not only style, power and a dominating road presence but also want to have the best-in-class space and comfort for their family.

Speaking at the occasion, Mr. Hiroshi Nakagawa, Director of the Board and Managing Executive Officer, Isuzu Motors Ltd, said, “India is a key market for ISUZU globally and is also a future hub of our global manufacturing operations. We will continue to invest in the Indian operations and also bring in the best technology and engineering that ISUZU has to offer globally. ISUZU is globally renowned for making tough, reliable and fuel efficient vehicles that are known to be engineered for life. The mu-X embodies these characteristics and will be built at our state-of-the-art manufacturing plant at Sri City with the same exacting quality standards that have made ISUZU a trusted brand all over the world.”
Mr. Hitoshi Kono, Deputy Managing Director, Isuzu Motors India, added, “The ISUZU mu-X is the perfect SUV for the modern Indian SUV buyer and it has been designed to offer the perfect combination of style, power and road presence while also providing excellent space and comfort. The Indian market for SUVs is now coming of age and we are excited to be present here in these times with our latest offering. We are confident the mu-X will set a new benchmark for full size premium SUVs in India.”

The mu-X is powered by the 3.0 litre ISUZU Ddi VGS Turbo Hi-Power engine which gives a maximum power output of 130 kW (177 PS) and a maximum torque of 380 Nm with a superior flat torque curve. The mu-X will be available in both 4x2 and 4x4 variants with a 5 speed sequential shift Automatic Transmission. The 4x4 variant sports a ‘shift-on-the-fly’ 4x4 select dial for an excellent off-roading capability. 

On the exterior, the mu-X is styled with a tiger-inspired dynamic and muscular exterior that make it look truly spectacular and dominating on the road, a must have characteristic for a sports utility vehicle in this class. 

ISUZU vehicles are renowned for their tough build and the mu-X stays true to this reputation with a high tensile steel body with tailor welded blanks and crumple zones with anti-intrusion bars. 

Advanced active safety systems like ESC (Electronic Stability Control), TCS (Traction Control System) and ABS (Anti-lock Brake System) with EBA (Emergency Brake Assist) and EBD (Electronic Brake force Distribution) along with a host of passive safety systems provide enhanced safety under unfavourable driving conditions. 

A key aspect of the mu-X is the 3rd row seating which allows full-size adults comfortable seating with ample leg room and foot-well. Another key aspect is the fully folding second row seat with a one-touch fold-and-tumble feature with maximum ingress space. The third row is no longer an excuse for adults to avoid. 

The full size 7 seater SUV has been designed to provide the best-in-class space inside the vehicle, one of the unique features of the mu-X. Along with space, the mu-X sports other creature comforts, along with superior options for entertainment. All this and much more make the mu-X a formidable entrant in the premium full size 7 seater SUV market.
