Powerful and fuel efficient Isuzu MU-X

The new Isuzu MU-X was developed to stand out and stand apart in every aspect. This model is designed with extra attitude which embodies a true interpretation of an sports utility vehicle (SUV).

On or off-road, the MU-X performs with perfection thanks to its exclusive 3.0L Isuzu Ddi Super Commonrail turbo diesel engine, maximum 380Nm of torque and intuitive 5 speed transmission, the MU-X has what it takes to get you across town or around Cambodia.

The new MU-X delivers powerful performance at every speed level and high fuel efficiency enabled by environment-friendly technology.

Designed with a distinctive new look of 3D front grill design, a refined side step and flash back sporty 18-inch alloy wheels, the Isuzu MU-X commands attention with its contemporary style and exciting sporty sensation.

The MU-X’s interior provides a new level of comfort. The spacious cabin is a work of refinement crafted with carefully selected material in sporty dark tone to please the eyes. Its ergonomically-designed bolster seats can accommodate and pamper occupants throughout the trip.

The spacious design of the MU-X’s cabin brings comfort to the driver and passengers. The 60:40 second row and 50:50 third row adjustment capabilities allow passenger seats to fold down and create more cargo space for enhanced flexibility to suit various lifestyles. There is also plenty of clever storage compartments for personal items.

Wherever the road ahead takes you, the new Isuzu MU-X ensures safe journeys with its active and passive safety systems.

The Hill Start Assist function engages automatically on gradients to prevent the MU-X rolling when moving from a stationary position while the Hill Descent Control allows a smooth hill descent at a controlled speed.

The Anti-lock Brake System with Electric Brake force Distribution and Brake Assist (BA) features provide great stopping ability and control even on slippery road conditions.

Electronic Stability Control and Traction Control System allow for maximum road grip during acceleration and high speed cornering.

On the other hand, the High Tensile Steel passenger safety cell, combined with dual front airbags and pretension safety belts assure confidence for occupants.
