Isuzu MU-X - Popular 7 Seater Finds 50,000 Homes In Australia
Debuting back in December of 2013, the Isuzu MU-X has earned a reputation as a durable and trusted companion amongst Australian drivers—possessing the capability, versatility and comfort that was sought after in a Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV). Now, exactly seven years down the road, the MU-X has not only surpassed 50,000 sales in Australia but has also earned its place as Australia’s most popular ute-based SUV for the sixth consecutive year—continuously striking a chord with families and adventurers looking to ‘Go Their Own Way’.
Often favoured for its proven D-MAX underpinnings, the MU-X has been revered for its ability to blend the best of the D-MAX's robust powertrain and ladder-frame chassis with added benefit of key SUV components that makes SUV’s popular in Australia. With 7-seats, uncompromised visibility from within the cabin, an abundance of cargo space and a 3.0-tonne braked towing capacity across the 4x2 and 4x4 range, there is no denying why the MU-X has been one of the top-selling models for years on end within its hotly contested ‘SUV Large less than $70K’ segment.
“Since its local arrival back in 2013, the Isuzu MU-X has found favour with Australian adventurers, families and tourers alike who praise it for its characteristic versatility and capability. As a result, this favoured vehicle continues to exceed expectations among our Australian drivers,” said Isuzu UTE Australia Managing Director, Hiroyasu Sato.
“Across the last seven years, the Isuzu MU-X has played an integral part in establishing the identity of the Isuzu UTE Brand, recognised for its strengths through various accolades within the Australian Automotive industry which has solidified its position as a top choice within the Large SUV segment,” he said.
In September 2020, the MU-X saw its popularity soar with the bolder, more enhanced Isuzu MU-X ONYX edition—the first Special Edition MU-X ever produced under the Isuzu badge. This ONYX Edition claimed favourability with Australian owners for its exclusive styling and additional features atop the LS-T-variant on which it was based—so much so, that most of the 420 examples have already been sold after only 2 months on the market—proving that the MU-X remains as a competitive choice for buyers wanting a Large SUV.
