Japanese manufacturer Isuzu forayed into the India auto market with the launch of its two flagship products, one of which is the full sized Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) MU-7. This vehicle has been built on a ladder frame chassis and looks menacing from the front. Its front grille has been divided into three parts, which makes the SUV look aesthetically appealing. The 2013 Isuzu MU-7#39;s nose has a prominent V-shape and the company’s logo has been styled in chrome.

In addition, a sporty looking intake has also been given to the bonnet. Although a 3 per cent hike in excise duty on SUVs has been announced, the new Isuzu MU-7 in India comes at a reasonable price. Over a few years, the company would look at localisation by starting a plan in Andhra Pradesh, as currently the SUV is only available as a Completely Built Unit (CBU).

Once the plant is operational, it will be built through the Completely Knocked Down (CKD) route. At the current price point, the model competes against established competitors like Toyota Fortuner and Mitsubishi Pajero Sport, among others.

Variants of Isuzu MU-7

Two variants of the Isuzu MU-7 are currently available in 4×2 drive mode in the Indian auto market. The engine in both vehicles is identical; however it is offered in two transmission options, namely a 5-speed manual gearbox and a 4-speed automatic. It is expected that once the new plant of Isuzu is set up, the company will be able to produce 4×4 variants of the SUV as well.

Review of Isuzu MU-7

Despite tipping the scales at 1900 kg, the Isuzu MU-7 SUV is still able to sprint from 0-100 kmph in less than 11 seconds. Auto analysts have stated that the model is quite stable at high speeds on smooth tarmac and has a top speed of 175 kmph. One hopes that the weight does not become a deterrent in handling, which could be counteracted by the fact that this is a rear wheel drive vehicle.

Experts are of a view that rear wheel drives are often more fun to drive as compared to front wheel drive models.

Exterior Appearance

Isuzu MU-7 in India projects an aggressive look from the front. It has a high ground clearance of 225 mm, which allows it travel off road with much ease. Styling is not very modern and pales in comparison to the Toyota Fortuner. New projector head lamps have been fitted for better visibility. The front grille with Isuzu logo has been finished in chrome.

Interestingly, the vehicle#39;s tail lamps are triangular in shape. Fog lamps are sunken in and the front bumper seems to emerge out, which has been a marked version from the previous international version. At the rear, a single exhaust pipe can be seen.

In terms of colours, the Isuzu MU-7 can be purchased in shades of white, black or silver.
