The RZ4E engine is here, and it’s ready to take on the Philippine roads with its smaller yet fuel-efficient diesel engine. Caco took the mu-X on a spin and here’s what he thinks.

For almost a decade now, the Toyota Fortuner has ruled the roost in the premium SUV category. In its second generation, the Toyota Fortuner has ditched the butch appeal and can now blend in the urban environment. However, do we need an SUV that looks sedate? This is the answer we got from Isuzu with the introduction of the MU-X. But, can the new entry challenge the undispited king of the premium SUV space. We pit the two against each other on and off the road to find just that out!
Isuzu has introduced its first new model since General Motors' departure from the South African market: a 7-seater Adventure SUV named the MU-X, which is a rival to the Toyota Fortuner, Ford Everest and Mitsubishi Pajero Sport. The MU-X may share its workmanlike 3.0-litre 4-cylinder turbodiesel engine with the venerable KB bakkie, but its a well-specified, practical family vehicle with a pliant ride quality courtesy its multi-link rear suspension. Can the modernised Isuzu succeed where its now departed cousin, the Chevrolet Trailblazer failed? Ciro De Siena reviews the top-of-range MU-X derivative: the 3.0 4x4 Automatic.

It's one of the best-selling 4x4 SUV's on the market, so what makes the Isuzu MU-X so appealing? There's a 3-litre 130kW/380Nm turbo diesel, 230mm of ground clearance and seven seats that give the MU-X a simple but capable go-anywhere ability.

As the DENR deadline for non-Euro 4-compliant vehicles draws to a close, there are vehicles in the market that are in danger of getting axed. The Isuzu Crosswind and Mitsubishi Adventure are among those, which we (sadly) have to bid farewell to.
However, there’s another Isuzu vehicle that's in trouble with the said regulation — the mu-X. Thankfully, Isuzu Philippines brings in the new Blue Power engine during their 20th Anniversary.
With a promise of better emission and engine performance, does this new iteration of Isuzu’s famous midsize SUV live up to its predecessor’s reputation? We drive the 3.0 LS-A 4x2 AT Blue Power variant to find out.
The new mu-X Blue Power’s design isn’t far from the models it replaced; it still has that robust yet classy design. What separates this new model, though, are the restyled daytime running lights (DRL), embossed grille from the D-Max, bigger 18-inch rims, and a slightly revamped front and rear bumpers. To top it off, the mu-X Blue Power is given 2 new decals by the tailgate — the Isuzu’s 20th year and Blue Power badges.
All the slight exterior changes complement the already-imposing appeal of the mu-X. However, what I think is its best trait is the Silky Pearl White color that will cost you an additional P10,000. For me, it’s the best-looking among the pearl white variants of its competitors with its slightly reddish hue.
The changes inside the mu-X Blue Power are also subtle, yet a great improvement from the outgoing model. It has new seat design, covered with a combination of synthetic and genuine leather that are soft to the touch. Also, the blue- and white-themed gauge clusters are well-lit and visible even under direct sunlight.
A blue ambient lighting is also added to the mu-X’s interior. It gives a premium feel to the car at night. Most parts of the dashboard looks plush with leather coverings and some soft plastic items. However, the piano black accents aren’t really a preference for me. Sure, they look good but these can be easily scratched through time.
As a family vehicle, among the things you should check is the car’s air conditioning. The mu-X does a great job with that, even at the last row — thanks to the roof-mounted air vents that has independent controls.
Another thing to consider, especially in this gadget-filled environment, is the availability of USB charging ports and power outlets. They are quite abundant for the driver and front passenger (2 USB ports and 2 12V power outlets), however, passengers at the back will need to take turns as there’s only 1 USB port for the 2nd row and a 12V outlet at the luggage area behind the 3rd row.
I like the mu-X’s 8-inch touchscreen LCD with offline navigation that’s connected to a 10-inch roof-mounted pop-up LCD monitor by the 2nd row. You can do smartphone mirroring to source the video, but it’s for Android phones only.
Good thing the head unit has a DVD player, so you better get one of those Disney DVDs for the kids. Speaking of kids, the mu-X Blue Power has ISOFIX child seat latches, which is the better seat option to ensure your child’s safety when riding with you.
