With impressive styling, lots of features like push button stop/start, projector headlamps, and a capable drivetrain with shift-on-fly 4WD option, the MUX certainly looks like an impressive package. The updated mu-X continues to draw power from the same 3.0-litre diesel like the pre-facelift model. It makes 177PS and 380Nm with a 5-speed AT. Like before, the new mu-X is also available with both 2WD and 4WD options. As far as the aesthetics are concerned, the mu-X looks sharper than before. Although there aren’t any changes to the sheet metal, the updated mu-X gets a redesigned front bumper, grille and rear bumper. It rides on bigger 18-inch, twin-spoke alloy wheels, which is a size up when compared to the 17-inch units offered in the previous model. It gets LED lighting as well, with new bi-LED projector headlamps with integrated daytime running lamps (DRLs) and tail lamps with LED elements. Do take a test drive in order to judge your driving comfort.

It depends on person to person how they feel .... according to me it has a good performance
The Isuzu MU-X replaces the old MU-7 in the Indian market. The MU-X, based on the same platform as the Chevrolet Trailblazer, will be manufactured locally at Isuzu’s Sri City-based plant to keep its price in check. The MU-X looks rather attractive as the curves on the new SUV give it a contemporary look compared to the boxy styling of the outgoing MU-7. The interiors are quite spacious, and it comes loaded with features as well.However, the mu-X is a bit raw in the way SUVs are meant to be. It can go off the road with the same vigour as its competitors. It’s a comfortable cruiser and daily rider too, but remains more in the mould of the traditional SUV while the competition imparts a better and more car-like experience. So, the mu-X is a lot like its predecessor -- a solid and capable seven-seat SUV that can tackle plenty of rugged terrain, and the added layer of feel-good factor and new design makes it a package that is more appealing now.
Under the hood, it has the same 3.0-litre turbo diesel engine as before and makes 177PS of max power and 380Nm of peak torque. It is mated to a 5-speed torque convertor automatic gearbox. Isuzu will likely update its engine lineup of the MU-X later to adhere to BSVI norms, which kick in by April 2020. The MU-X still undercuts its competition like Toyota Fortuner and Ford Endeavour when it comes to pricing but is right in the line of fire of the new Honda CR-V, which also now comes with three-row seating and a new diesel engine. While the Isuzu has the CR-V trumped in terms of engine, power and off-road credentials, the CR-V is the more versatile city rover and has better brand recall.
