Isuzu has leaked teaser images of further updates for the MU-X SUV ahead of its debut next month at the Bangkok Motor Show.
As TMR reported on 10 February, Isuzu Australia has just launched a mild update for the MU-X (pictured below) – featuring a new version of the 3.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine (still with 130kW but more torque at 430Nm and, most importantly, Euro5-compliant), new six-speed automatic and manual transmissions, reduced NVH and some new infotainment choices.
But this next facelift – confirmed to arrive in Australia later this year – is the mid-life update and brings with it some more substantial changes.
While details are scarce ahead of the official launch in Bangkok, reports point to a substantially revised front-end with a new bumper and grille, projector headlights, LED DRLs and some extra chrome.
Not so much has been leaked about the rear end – only LED tail-lights at this stage – and there are new design 18-inch alloy wheels.
The teasers also shows a handsome new beige interior colour, a revised dashboard and timber look trim highlights.
No changes are expected under the bonnet – maintaining the 3.0-litre turbo-diesel and 4WD (the exclusive Australian combination) while Asian markets will also continue 2WD models powered by a 110kW/350Nm 1.9-litre engine.
