There was a slight whistle of wind from the A-pillars, but the MU-X is generally a very quiet place to be and is a very competent tourer. Why? We get asked a lot of questions about the sales performance each month of Australia’s fleet of rugged, ute-based family off-roaders.
Think of the MU-X as a five-seater with a good boot and occasional room for extra littlies and you’ll be much better off.
Urban speeds and freeway cruising are a breeze for the Isuzu. At night though, neither the volume or tuning knob light up with a label, so it takes a few skipped tracks before you can reliably join Sammy Hagar and punch out the chorus of Dreams at peak volume.

Great new engine
The cabin is very basic, with an array of hollow, hard plastics and 1990’s style air-conditioning and entertainment controls.
No advanced safety equipment. The driver’s seat can slide up and down, but with the position of the steering wheel (which has height but not reach adjustment) is never spot on. If you legitimately don’t need the 4WD ability, you can do almost anything with the 2WD version. Very comfy ride The 'push down to open up' mechanism just doesn’t work – the push-catch design in the Holden Cruze is a much better implementation.
Sure there are no auto wipers, or auto headlights, or auto pretty-much-anything, but the ergonomics are good for the most part (mirror controls are down by your knee) and the car beeps (incessantly) if you leave the lights on anyway! There are no harsh or violent jabs from the suspension, the MU-X jostles a bit on the ‘down’ side of larger bumps, but the car remains composed at all times. It means us iPhone users need a separate cable to connect to the stereo, which of course I never had with me. The stereo is very basic, but it works and doesn’t judge your poor musical tastes. Take the trailer off. It can reliably handle a big weight out back with comfort and economy thrown in to the deal, plus at the moment you can nab a 2WD MU-X for just $36,990 drive away.
Boot is smaller than some rivals Decent third row, Cons Capable off-roader Recommended List Price (MRLP) inclusive of GST, exclusive of options and on road costs.
There’s reasonable room in the back seat for adults, despite the near-vertical seat back, but it at least encourages excellent posture. It’s very much business before pleasure. Pros Joining the competition is the Isuzu mu-X, which made its Philippine debut last year. We speak for the Ford Everest, Holden Colorado 7, Isuzu MU-X, Mitsubishi Pajero Sport and Toyota Fortuner, based respectively on the Ranger, Colorado, D-Max, Triton and HiLux. Helpful too is the self-shifting mode which allows you to hold a gear to better manage the load up steep inclines where cautious speed is important. The clatter from the exhaust and whistle from the turbo have no qualms in crushing any thoughts you may have of being mistaken for some hyper-refined Euro-hybrid. The biggest issue is the use of a Mini USB port as a connection point. To add insult to injury, the storage cubby that sits on top of the main floor might give you a place to store your parcel blind, but if you have anything in the back resting on it, and you open the (heavy) tailgate while on the slightest of inclines, everything falls out. Storage, like the D-Max, is great, courtesy of the central console cubby, twin gloveboxes (the top one has a 12-volt outlet) and good door-pockets. You sit high in the MU-X, which is great for outward visibility, but you do feel you are sitting ‘on’ rather than ‘in’ the car. Not according to Isuzu, because while this version of the MU-X might look and tow like a 4X4, it is in fact only rear-wheel drive.
You can resort to using the 12-volt outlet as a charger and stream music via Bluetooth though, so it’s a short-lived whinge. Isuzu also builds big commercial engines, designed to be reliable and robust, and that DNA is this engine. The rearmost seats too are suitable for adults on short trips, but with the third row up, the boot is beyond useless at just 235 litres. You can’t help but think the seating arrangement has been deigned to suit drivers well under six-foot, as the wheel can drop unnaturally low – which constantly reminds me of a dirty pirate joke…. Decent third row, Cons Yes the steering is heavy and slow (we counted four turns of the wheel, lock-to-lock) and it's not super nimble at the shopping centre carpark – in fact, even without a reverse camera (parking sensors are there though) the MU-X is easier to back into a spot than it is to head in nose-first.
With its five-speed automatic transmission, the LS-M never exhibits the ‘hunting’ sensation some of its newer and more cog-laden alternatives might.
Lacking some new safety tech You can hear the shocks working away, particularly over speed humps, as the suspension compresses.

Once you get used to the nature of the MU-X, the ride could even be called ‘comfy’. Unless otherwise stated, all prices are shown as Manufacturer's Isuzu mu-X 2.5 LS M 4x2 MT 2020 ₱ 1,208,000.
