Isuzu MU-7 Overview

Isuzu MU-7 is the newest offering in the SUV segment of Indian auto industry in the sub 25 Lakhs price bracket by Japanese auto giant Isuzu. It is a perfect amalgamation of sturdiness and raw power; going by its exterior appearance and engine specifications. The company has introduced it with a tag of 'Business Class SUV' which seems a bit of exaggeration, going by the comfort and convenience features that it offers inside the cabin. Although, it does find a savior in the form of inner cabin spaciousness amidst all this negativity, which is complimented well by some optional equipments. The SUV is being presented in three vibrant colors - Sterling Silver Metallic, Silky White Pearl, and Starry Black Mica.
Isuzu MU-7 Overview
Isuzu MU-7 doesn't reflect too many reasons for buying but among the very few, is its adorable 3.0L powertrain that doesn't let it down, at least in this aspect. The engine generates decent power and torque figures of 161bhp at 3600rpm and 360Nm at 1800-2800rpm, respectively. Surprisingly, Isuzu has neither introduced an automatic transmission variant nor a 4X4 variant with the SUV and has gone with the traditional 5-speed manual gearbox with power being transmitted to the rear wheels of the SUV. Dual front airbags on the safety front are not acceptable as such hefty price at least contemplates for 6 airbags.

Isuzu MU-7 Exterior

Isuzu MU-7 is bulky and muscular in appearance and it is one aspect which really impresses an individual. Isuzu engineers have worked their heart out in providing this SUV a rugged and durable frame so that it can endure almost any terrain. Front and rear bumper skirts flaunt the dominating nature of the SUV, while the side stepper provides the much required convenience factor. Roof rails seem to be all right in its place. Front lamps and grille with company badge in centre are praise worthy.
Isuzu MU-7 Exterior
Twin fog lamps integrated beneath the headlamps provides a classical appearance to the SUV. Tail lights locked with boot are par expectations. Isuzu MU-7 sports radial tubeless tyres of size 245/70R16. The Alloy wheels goes well with the SUV colors and makes it look elegant. Suspension system is also decent as front suspensions is independent double wishbone with torsion bar springs while the rear one is rigid suspension with gas-sealed, twin-tube shock absorber. Overall, exterior design is par excellence and it remains the biggest pillar of strength for the SUV.

Isuzu MU-7 Interior

Inside the cabin, the first thing which catches an individual's attention, instantly, is the loads of wide open space which is a subsequent outcome of the extended wheelbase. It facilitates an individual by providing adequate headroom, leg room and shoulder room. Isuzu MU-7 features a dual A/C along with rear air-conditioner switch and ceiling vents for 2nd & 3rd row occupants, so that heat can be encountered with ease. In addition, instrument cluster with digital trip computer has found a place in the SUV. There is an option of seat slide on front, 2nd and 3rd rows along with seat recline on front and 2nd rows.
Isuzu MU-7 Interior
Isuzu engineers have utilized leather exceptionally well inside the cabin. It features multiple leather items such as leather seats, 4 spoke leather wrapped steering wheel and leather wrapped gear lever knob, which makes it more elegant in appearance and sophisticated in nature. Additionally, the company is also offering 2-DIN audio DVD system with touch screen, bluetooth, USB & aux-in and rear view camera with display on 2-DIN as an optional pack.

Isuzu MU-7 Engine & Transmission

Isuzu has been a prominent name in the diesel engine industry which is proved yet again by MU-7. Under the hood, the SUV feature a 3.0-litre, 4-cylinder, 16-valve, inter-cooled VGS turbo diesel mill which belts out a maximum power output of 161bhp at 3600rpm and peak torque performance of 360Nm at 1800-2800rpm.
Isuzu MU-7 Engine & Transmission
This engine is coupled with a 5-speed manual gearbox which transfers the power to the rear wheels of the SUV. Isuzu MU-7 certainly misses out on an automatic variant, a 4X4 variant and a combination of both. The only saving grace in this department is the healthy fuel economy of 12.08kmpl, despite being a powerful engine.

Isuzu MU-7 Mileage

The SUV sports a heavy and powerful 3.0-litre engine which is great when it comes to power and performance. It is compatible with almost every terrain; but at the same time, it is able to maintain a healthy mileage of 12.08 which is really appreciable. Although, it differs slightly inside the city but it steadily achieves the aforementioned mileage figures on highways.

Isuzu MU-7 Braking and Safety

Isuzu MU-7 braking system is all right in its place. It features disk brakes as front and drum brakes as the rear ones. The company has installed multiple up-market safety features such as ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) with EBD (Electronic Brakeforce Distribution) and dual front airbags which ensure maximum safety of occupants in case of any mishap. Remote keyless entry ensures maximum security of the vehicle from lock-pickers and thieves. In all, Isuzu MU-7 braking and safety aspect is below excellence, given the hefty sum that it costs.

Isuzu MU-7 Performance and Handling

Isuzu MU-7 features a hydraulic power steering which maneuvers the SUV quite comfortably through congested place and not tiresome at all. Isuzu MU-7 takes full advantage of the smaller 5-speed gearbox inside the city traffic and moves convincingly. Additionally, it makes the SUV achieve the 100kmph barrier from standstill in a mere time span of 11.7 seconds. Although, the performance is not a perfect ten out of ten one, but it is decent.

What do we think about Isuzu MU-7?

Isuzu MU-7, unapologetically, is one of the finest SUV's available in the southern India. It's almost every dealership is located in the south of India, except for the one in New Delhi. Hence, maximum number of customers belonging to various other parts of the country, except south, are deprived of buying it. It is the biggest minus for the SUV as well as company. Secondly, pricing could have been made much more aggressive and sharper, going by the price tags that its contemporaries flaunt!

Isuzu MU-7 Competitors

Isuzu MU-7 is a massive SUV and is pitted against the likes of Toyota Fortuner, Ford Endeavour and Ssangyong Rexton in Indian auto industry. It lacks several avant-garde comfort and convenience features as compared to its rivals. Drivability is also not impeccable and the pricing also astounds a bit. The only thing that goes in its favour is the tough exterior appearance and mammoth inner cabin spaciousness.
