Car Profiles - Isuzu MU-X

ISUZU MU-X

Essentially the second generation Alterra, the MU-X just arrived recently (it debuted at Thailand last year) with lots of changes and the expansion of line-up. While you may say it resembles the Trailblazer, it does since it is its twin. A star in Isuzu's limited line-up.

The Good: Very refined for an Isuzu
The Bad: 

Price Range: P1,238,000-P1,798,000
Our Rating: ****
