The BS6 compliant Isuzu MU-X has been launched in India. The company had delayed plans to introduce BS6 models in the country due to the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Back in October 2018, the MU-X received an update in the form of updated design and added features. This time around, the carmaker has introduced the BS6 1.9-litre diesel engine while retaining the exterior and interior of the SUV.
The MU-X carries forward the aggressive fascia that the carmaker calls ‘Eagle-inspired’ styling. It features bi-LED projector headlamps with integrated LED day-time-running lights and a redesigned rear. The bumpers house the fog lamps along with a chrome bezel to give it a more upmarket look. The SUV rides on 18-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels. The MU-X also has a higher ground clearance of 230mm.
The cabin gets sportier Lava Black leather upholstery done in fine quilted leather. The soft-touch plastic and silver inserts make the cabin appear more premium than before. The feature list includes seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system, one-touch fold function for second and third-row seats, 60:40 seats with integrated armrest and cupholders, a USB port in the middle console box, cruise control, and six-way electrically adjustable driver’s seat and keyless entry.
Mechanically, the vehicle is powered by a new BS6 1.9-litre turbodiesel engine. It generates 161bhp and 360Nm of peak torque. The transmission is handled by a six-speed automatic gearbox and can be had in both 4x2 and 4x4 guise.
With the arrival of the new Isuzu MU-X, the company has taken the opportunity to introduce its BS6 powertrain, a 1.9-litre 161bhp/360Nm diesel mill that uses a six-speed automatic gearbox. Otherwise, the overall package remains largely the same as the outgoing model, barring a few tweaks here and there.
