Sagar Parikh, I'm the international news editor at IndianAutosBlog.com. I love everything that has a steering wheel!

Will be launched on 4 March, 2017.

The current Isuzu MU-X was launched four years ago in Thailand and is due for a mid-cycle update. The company has announced that, as expected, the facelifted Isuzu MU-X will be officially unveiled next month. A teaser video has been released to reveal a few of the key changes made to the SUV with the facelift.

The facelifted Isuzu MU-X is said to continue being offered with the current model’s 1.9- and 3.0-litre diesel engines.

Up front, the 2017 Isuzu MU-X seems to feature new projector headlamps with LED daytime running lights, redesigned grille, revised bumper and reshaped fog lamps with chrome garnish on the fog lamp housing. On the sides, the new MU-X gets new 18-inch alloy wheels, while at the rear, the only change known so far is new LED tail lights.

The facelift was expected to bring several changes to the interior of the Isuzu MU-X, including a revised dashboard and new seat upholstery. The teaser image reveals that the mid-size SUV features new beige interior. The dashboard is still black, but is embellished with wood trim.
