Isuzu Unveils The Next Fortuner Rival? Refreshed 2025 MU-X In Thailand


MU-X Exterior And Interior Enhancements:

The 2025 MU-X boasts a redesigned front fascia with new headlights, a restyled grille, and updated alloy wheels. The rear end also receives a refresh with new taillights. Inside, the cabin benefits from a revised layout featuring a 7.0-inch semi-digital instrument cluster and a new infotainment system with dual knobs for volume and other controls. Additionally, the update incorporates enhanced safety features.

Introduction Of The Sportier RS Variant:

Isuzu introduces a new, sportier RS variant for the MU-X. This trim features blacked-out elements such as alloy wheels, roof rails, and side mirrors, complemented by a distinct gloss black front grille. The RS variant also receives revised front and rear bumpers with additional diffuser elements, creating a more athletic appearance. The RS interior sports exclusive RS-inscribed seats with lime green stitching, extending to the door trims for a cohesive aesthetic.

MU-X Safety & Tech:

In the Thai market, the new MU-X prioritizes safety with the inclusion of ADAS technologies like rear cross-traffic alert, lane keep assist, and a 360-degree parking camera.

Powertrain Options Remain Largely Unchanged:

The 2025 MU-X retains its engine options, offering a 1.9-litre and a 3.0-litre turbo diesel engine paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission. The SUV remains available in both two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive configurations.

Global Availability And Potential Indian Market Entry:

While the new MU-X is currently slated for launch in the Thai market, followed by potential introductions in select ASEAN countries and Australia, there is no official confirmation regarding its arrival in India. Should Isuzu decide to introduce the updated MU-X to the Indian market in the future, it could pose a significant challenge to competitors like the Toyota Fortuner, particularly with the sportier RS variant potentially rivaling the Fortuner Legender. However, historical trends suggest that some features might be omitted for the Indian market due to cost considerations and taxation structures. Additionally, the Indian version might solely offer the 1.9-litre turbo diesel engine
