Isuzu Motors South Africa (IMSA) has announced the arrival of the second generation of the manufacturer seven-seater SUV. The Isuzu mu-X is based on the Isuzu D-MAX model and so far, it has proven to be a reliable, luxurious and all-round practical family vehicle.
According to Quickpic the next generation Isuzu mu-X will be equipped with passive and active safety systems, as well as the latest infotainment system that accommodates both Android Auto and Apple car play.
“The upcoming Isuzu mu-X is a game changer for us, as it offers class leading driver assistance technology, new state of the art powertrains, and a luxurious interior designed for maximum comfort for seven occupants,” said Dominic Rimmer, Senior Vice President Technical Operations.
It has a bold exterior design matched with an interior filled with luxurious fittings and soft surfaces, making any driving experience enjoyable and safe.
“We are steadily on track to launch the next generation Isuzu mu-X in South Africa,” adds Rimmer. “Vehicle testing was successfully conducted late 2020 and we continue to test the vehicle under a number of conditions to ensure it is suitably prepared for South African conditions.”
The company has created a Dealer technical training course for all Isuzu technicians who will be responsible for the servicing and maintenance of the vehicles once they have gone on sale. Isuzu are also ensuring that all parts for both service and repair will be available once the sales commence. Isuzu dealers can expect to receive parts within one or two days of an order depending on the type of order placed.
The mu-X is manufactured at Isuzu’s Samrong vehicle assembly facility in Thailand. It will be imported to South Africa for sale later this year.
Additional product information and pricing will be made available closer to the launch date. So keep an eye out for more details at www.isuzu.co.za
