Isuzu Motors India has updated its infotainment systems for two of its models, the Isuzu V-Cross and MU-X. These cars now feature a larger and upgraded 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system in their cabin. This new unit is also confirmed to have Android Auto and Apple Carplay connectivity. Smartphone connectivity was not available in the earlier 7-inch touchscreen unit. It is noted that Isuzu made this move after the recent launch of the Toyota Hilux. The Hilux is getting many new and better-equipped features than the V-Cross pickup.
The Isuzu V-Cross is offered in two trims, a base Z variant with FWD automatic and a manual 4WD option. It also has a top-spec Z Prestige variant with an automatic 4WD option. The V-Cross starts from a price of Rs. 23 lakh and can go up to Rs. 27 lakh. Moreover, the MU-X SUV is priced from Rs. 35 lakh to Rs. 37.90 lakh. No extra price has been added for the new infotainment system.
Isuzu V-Cross and MU-X Features
There will not be many alterations to the mechanical side of the models either. Both the cars will don the same 1.9-litre diesel engine that can generate a maximum power of 163 ps and 360 Nm peak torque. The V-Cross does also come with the option of a 6-speed manual gearbox as well as a 6-speed automatic. However, the MU-X SUV only comes with a 6-speed automatic gearbox.
An official announcement has not been received as to when the MU-X and the V-Cross will be introduced with the updated infotainment system to the Indian market. The V-Cross does not have any direct rivals, but a costlier and current model is the Toyota Hilux. The MU-X will face plenty of competition from the Mahindra Alturas 4G, MG Gloster and Toyota Fortuner too.
