Isuzu first launched the MU-X SUV in India in May last year and now it's all ready to bring in a facelift of the car. The facelift of the MU-X promises to add to the appeal of the car by providing some comprehensive updates to the car which makes it more relevant and keeps up with its competitors. On the outside the MU-X facelift now gets projector headlamps with LED daytime running lights. It also comes with a reworked front grille and bumper. The fog lamps are larger now and sport chrome inserts for a premium touch.
At the rear, the Isuzu MU-X facelift will also sport revised tail lamps and even the rear bumpers have been restyled. There's now a large spoiler at the rear but in terms of design, the SUV remains largely unchanged. However, the new alloy wheels do add a bit of oomph to the whole bit. We wait to see the feature list of the car though to know exactly what all has been added to the kitty.
