With SUV’s accounting for almost 40% of the new vehicle market last year, a thorough buyers guide and considered awards process to help consumers navigate the market has never been more pertinent.
Now in its 7th year, these awards are specifically aimed at helping consumers make educated buying decisions. Having won the top gong for 3 consecutive years (2013, 2014 and 2015) in this segment, Isuzu UTE Australia are delighted to be back at the top of the list thanks to the ‘new-look, pumped-up, 3 litre, 430Nm, 6-speed Isuzu MU-X’ launched in May 2017.
Editor in Chief of OzRoamer Rob Fraser attributed the vehicle’s success to a number of components: “The competitive advantage that the Isuzu MU-X has always had is its stylish good looks, exemplary road manners, rugged off road capability, outstanding reliability, durability, longevity and renowned value for money.”
“The Isuzu MU-X LS-T is now a four times winner of this category. It remains the best balanced of all the Ute based 4wd wagons,” he concluded.
The stylish new-look model has an extensively refined interior and exterior complemented by an impressive array of safety features and thanks to the abundance of low-down torque provided by the new powertrain, the MU-X makes for a confident towing partner but is equally at home offroad, with impressive ground clearance, affording these models true rugged off-road performance.
“We are particularly proud of the success of the MU-X in an extremely competitive market.” commented IUA Managing Director, Mr. Hiro Kuramoto. “We are excited to see that our updated models have really hit the mark with our consumers.”
“Customer satisfaction and loyalty is the key to our ongoing success,” he continued “with many happy owners now transitioning into a newer model as well as increasing numbers of new customers being referred. This award is testament to the quality of the product, and reconfirms our reputation for performance, dependability, and value.”
So, if you’re looking for a new vehicle, look no further than the Isuzu MU-X. Rob Fraser sums it up nicely, saying “If you are looking for a robust, honest, durable, reliable 4WD or tow vehicle you would find it hard to pass the MU-X LS-T over.”
