A 2.5L diesel matched to a 5MT or a 4AT is offered on the updated Crosswind.

The 2015 Isuzu Crosswind is given a mildly redesigned front fascia with body-colored bumpers and a new silver grille. Newly designed 15-inch multi-spoke alloy wheels, an aluminum black side step board and two new colors – Hunter Green and Dark Silver – along with existing colors such as Cosmic Black, Garnet Red, Ash Beige and Splash White complete the list of exterior changes.

On the feature front, a DVD/CD/MP3/WMA/JPG player with USB function is provided, as are a spoiler integrated reverse camera, reverse sensors and an alarm system.

The mechanicals of the Crosswind are left unchanged. The people-carrier is powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder diesel engine developing 85 hp, matched to a 5-speed manual gearbox as standard. On the 2015 model Crosswind, Isuzu is reintroducing the 4-speed automatic transmission as well. Apart from this, the suspension system has been reworked for better occupant comfort, Isuzu said.
