Better late than never, Isuzu has finally rolled out an update for its entire lineup, making their powertrains in line with new BS6 phase-2 norms that came into effect from April 1. Along with the updated powertrains, the V-Cross, Hi-Lander, and mu-X get a few new feature as well cosmetic revisions, so let’s see what’s new on the three vehicles by going through their respective changes one by one:

Three things that are common for all three models are the addition of a new Valencia Orange shade to their respective colour palette, idle start/stop technology and low-friction tyres for the automatic trims.


The V-Cross is easily the model with the most updates, but those have only been given to the 4x2 AT variant. Starting with the exterior, the V-Cross now gets new black alloys, Dark Gray side mirrors, and new garnishing on the fog lamps. Step inside and a new Premium Brown Dual tone seat upholstery with contrasting Cafe Brown elements on the dash, door panels and gear selector level will be awaiting you. 

It even gets new features in the form of cruise control and steering-mounted controls, which come along with additional safety features like traction control, electronic stability control, and hill start and decent control.

 Isuzu now retails the V-Cross from Rs 23.50 lakh (ex-showroom) onwards which is a bump of Rs 1.43 lakh over the pre-BS6 phase-2 vehicle.

Isuzu’s entry-level pickup hasn’t seen much revision in its features list apart from the addition of the climate control and rear defogger, both of which have been borrowed from the V-Cross pickup. There are no changes to its styling. The Hi-Lander is now priced at Rs 19.50 lakh (ex-showroom), which is unchanged compared to its pre-BS6 phase-2 update pricing. 


The only SUV in the Isuzu portfolio, the mu-X, only gets a single styling revision in the form of a new grille, which looks sportier than the outgoing unit. There are no changes to the feature or safety equipment on offer. The mu-X SUV now starts from Rs 37.90 lakh (ex-showroom), a premium of Rs 2.90 lakh over the previous prices.

Note: Full price list was not available at the time of publishing, hence only the starting prices of all three vehicles have been mentioned.

All three SUVs are powered using the same 1.9-litre turbo-diesel powertrain with an output of 163PS/360Nm. The mu-X and V-Cross can be had with both two- and four-wheel-drive powertrains with either a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission, the Hi-Lander is a two-wheel-drive manual offering only.

While the Hi-Lander has no immediate rival in the country, the more premium V-Cross is an affordable alternative to the Toyota Hilux. The mu-X fights off competition from the likes of the Toyota Fortuner, Skoda Kodiaq and MG Gloster.
