The brutal looking SUV from Japan landed in India in 2013. The car has been powered by a big 3.0 liter Turbo diesel engine which shoots 163 PS of power to the rear wheels and generates 360 Nm of torque. The car has massive on-road presence with big looks and wide body. The car has been designed with heavy design lines and has muscular body which induces a feeling of big car. The car has been designed to look brutal and the designers at Isuzu achieved the look perfectly. The rear of the vehicle has been a bit of dissapointment though. Even with a heavy weight of 2515 kg, the car can do the 0-100 kph mark in just 10.7 seconds flat and do the maximum speed of 175 km/h. The car has been equipped with 5-speed manual transmission.
Isuzu designed the interiors in a boring way. The simple dashboard does not excites the passengers and looks old-school. With a capacity of 7 people, car has a cramped mid-row. The MU-7 is the first step of Isuzu in India.Less

Expert Test Review
The interior is just like the exterior i.e. simple and slightly old-school. The design of the dash is not futuristic but everything is simple to use and there are lots of storage palaces. The MU-7′s interior though lacks some of the premium feel which is present in its rivals like the SsangYong Rexton. Isuzu has tried to improve the interior ambience by giving it more features. It is well equipped as the MU-7 has plush leather seats and a great sound system plus a rear entertainment system which contains screens for rear passengers. We liked the seats which are comfortable and not very hard. When talking about its seats it leads to the best thing about MU-7 which is its space as there lots of it inside. Thanks to a wheelbase of 3050 mm the MU-7 liberates tonnes of legroom and headroom. The second row is the most spacious in its class and even the third row is comfortable. Thigh support is decent on the second row and the whole cabin has an airy feeling to it. Overall Isuzu has clearly worked hard to make it plush on the inside and it has worked though design is clearly looking a bit old.
The speedometer of the Isuzu looks simple and old world.

One thing that the MU-7 has in bucket loads is presence. Tons of it. It is probably the beefiest SUV in India and looks bigger than any of its rivals which is a plus point. The MU-7 is basically the wagon version of the D-MAX pickup and is called the Isuzu Alterra in some countries. This butch looking SUV is along the lines of the Force One and Toyota Fortuner. In fact in styling terms it is a lot closer to the Force One and just like the One it is a old school SUV with loads of presence. The side view makes the car look really long. The front is our best part of the looks with a mean looking face that looks like its ready to swallow everything in its path. Surprisingly the rear styling is soft and rather conservative. We like the hood scoop, aggressive front bumper and the chrome grille. As we have earlier said the styling is pure old-school SUV especially with its big wheel arches and roof rails.

Isuzu is known for making tough, sturdy and high performing diesel engines. The MU-7 is powered by a 2999 cc turbo diesel engine which makes 163PS at 3600 rpm and a plentiful 360Nm of torque. Performance despite the weight is very good as it does 0-100 kmph in about 10.7 seconds and a top speed of 175 kmph. This will enable it to have sufficient power and will haul this beast well and truly on and off the road. The MU-7 comes with a 5-speed manual gearbox and is available only in 4×2 guise for now.
