First Drive: 2014 Isuzu mu-X LS-A 4WD

Photos by Ulysses Ang
For Isuzu, a lot is hinging on the success of the all-new mu-X. The mid-sized 7-seater SUV market is the country’s fastest growing segment and yet, their previous effort, the Alterra, barely made a dent in the market. After lessons were learned, they got back to the drawing board and pretty much re-designed, re-engineered, and even re-named their effort. Fast-forward years later and you have five Isuzu mu-Xs parked in a row in the scenic province of Palawan. The mu-X’s first drive just happens to be a road trip in paradise.

Glistening in the morning sun, the mu-X sure looks light-years ahead of the Alterra it replaces. It’s also by far the most handsome in the current crop. It’s taut and masculine with large stamped-in fender flares. The front end is unmistakably aggressive with trapezoidal headlamps that angle downward towards the bumper line and a double horizontal chrome grille with what looks like fangs. This treatment is successfully echoed in the rear bumpers with the tapering tail lamps serving as the perfect exclamation point. Simply put, when Isuzu says the mu-X is inspired by large predatory cats, they nailed it spot on.



Calling dibs to be group’s first driver, it’s time to sample the mu-X’s interior. A short hop up into the driver’s seat reveals a sporty all-black cabin. It’s straightforward, serious, and a dramatic departure from Isuzu’s tendency to go all beige-y. Without distractions from wood paneling, the mu-X impresses with its excellent levels of fit and finish. Though largely related to another mid-sized SUV (*cough* Trailblazer *cough*), the mu-X actually betters it with an interior that feels every inch more upscale. The black leather seats on the range-topping LS-A 4x4 is icing on the cake with its finely executed double-stitched pattern.

The surprises continue with the mu-X’s wealth of creature features. Adjusting the driver’s seat is a motorized affair with six-way adjustment. And with a press of the ‘Engine Start’ button, the electroluminescent gauges come to life with a full swing before settling down to normal. The MID, sandwiched between the speedo- and tachometer, has a wealth of information including time elapsed and even an instantaneous fuel consumption meter, in both bar and numerical form. It even has an automatic illumination control that adjusts the brightness of the dials based on ambient lighting (though this can be turned off in the Settings menu). After getting comfortable in the driver’s seat, which took just a few seconds, it’s time to shift to Drive and head off.



Not knowing what to expect from the mu-X’s performance, it’s actually quite surprising how it feels lithe and responsive. People who’re quick to dismiss the mu-X because of how the power figures look on paper don’t know any better. Yes, the 4JK1-TC engine produces just a maximum of 136 horsepower, but the more important figure, torque, is produced from as low as 1,800 rpm to 2,800 rpm. And you have 320 Nm to play with. Even after 2,800 rpm, the torque curve goes down gradually with around 280 Nm still available at 3,500 rpm and 230 Nm at 4,000 rpm. There’s ample acceleration for quick and satisfying overtaking maneuvers on Puerto Princesa’s busy roads. The mu-X’s great all-around visibility certainly helps as well.

As the convoy of mu-Xs made its way out of the city’s confines and onto unpopulated roads towards the Sheridan Organic Farm in Sabang did the lack of top-end power make itself apparent. Don’t get it wrong, if you’re cruising or not pushing to the limit, the mu-X feels great (despite being five to a car with luggage). It’s only when you’re trying to keep a tight convoy at high speed will you wish for 30 or 40 more horsepower. It is fairly weak at the crucial overtaking speed between 60-80 km/h. Still, the engine is refined and smooth at any throttle application and the five-speed automatic is responsive and quick to react. Isuzu says the mu-X does about 17.35 km/L in its internal tests, but during the drive, it hovered around 13.25 km/L—not bad considering how everyone was blitzing past the Palawan landscape at high speed.



After lunch, the group proceeded inland, traversing roads that cut across rain forests.  From this point on, the handling of the mu-X is put to the test as it’s full of tight, winding roads. It feels surprisingly responsive with a tight turn-in and controlled body roll. The suspension is firm, but rewards the driver with confidence to push just that extra bit. The rear tires chirp through corners at times, but the mu-X feels planted and stable enough to bite through. And when things do get hairy, the LS-A 4x4 comes with Electronic Stability Control (ESC) to keep you pointed in the right direction. The front and rear coil spring suspension (with five-links at the back), do their job of keeping everyone comfortable throughout the two-hour journey.

At the end lay Sheridan Hotel, a resort boasting a picturesque location near the Saint Paul mountain ranges, home to the Puerto Princesa Underground River National Park. After a quick break to freshen up, everyone sampled what’s recognized as one of the world’s new seven wonders of nature. Following the underground river tour, a short paddle boat ride of the surrounding mangrove forests ensued including trying out tamilok, a wood worm that grows in the rotting roots of the mangrove. It doesn’t taste like chicken, but like oyster, only chewier.



The following day, the drive from Sheridan Hotel to Honda Bay and then to the Crocodile Farm afforded some time to try the rear passenger seat of the mu-X. As expected, it’s a comfy place to be in. The legroom is great and enables you and your seatmate to cross legs with still enough space for a third person in the middle. With adjustable headrests on all rows and a second row that actually reclines, even sleeping on-the-go can be done. If you’re not in the napping mood, the mu-X  has full multimedia capability through its 7-inch touchscreen system with USB/iPod capability. A 10-inch roof-mounted DVD monitor adds even more entertainment options for those in the back. There are also 12 cup holders and 19 storage compartments scattered throughout the cabin making the it a truly road-trip friendly vehicle.

Over the years, it’s always been Isuzu’s thrust to make sure no one remains a stranger in his own country. Through their vehicles, they’ve managed to sample the finest destinations that the Philippines has to offer. In choosing Palawan, they’ve nailed a location that’s not only spectacularly beautiful, but also highlights the mu-X’s cohesive combination of comfort, practicality, luxury, and convenience. It’s truly what Isuzu needs: a flagship SUV that’s truly competitive in every sense of the word. And don’t just take their word for it: there’s actually a five-month waiting list on some variants, a sign of great times ahead.

  1. Isuzu slow is the word. power to weight ratio is not enough to convince me that the 136 ps power can do the job.yes on a tight convoy you need more poniees..
    we sold the Dmax coz it can catch up with the ranger 3.2 on the pack.

    1. Hmm, you don't buy a D-Max (or any other trucks) for speed, right?

      Delete
    2. Hmm.. I guess not... People buy isuzu for black smoke, unrefined ride and slow engine.

    3. What if I tell you the mu-X is even more refined that its twin? :P Still hating? Read reviews and comparisons.

      Delete
    4. So what? Being more refined than the colorado is by no means a huge success for the mu-x. That's like besting a pre school in a basic math quiz. Its not hard to do.

      Delete
    5. Because a lot of people praise the Chevy and bash the Isuzu. Reason? Brand stigma.

      Does it belch smoke? No. Is it slow? Not as fast as the Trailblazer, but definitely not slow. Unrefined? It's one of the best handling and comfortable ute based SUVs. People never failed to underestimate Isuzu.

    7. Not slow? How long does it take to reach 100km/h from a standstill then? A typical subcompact can reach it in about 11 seconds.

      Also, its a smoke belcher. A lot of owners acknowledged it. Its no big deal though, almost every diesel suvs here in the philippines are easily susceptible to belching smoke because of poor fuel quality.

      Delete
    8. I am referring to crosswind and alterra owners who acknowledged this issue. I'm not sure about the mu-x since its still quite new but I saw one belching smoke when it accelerated. Then again, I was seeing a lot of monteros and rangers that are smoke belchers.

      Delete
    9. 0-100 for A/T is 11.2 seconds, 11.4 seconds for the M/T. That's according to C!. I'm not sure what fuel that mu-X you saw uses, but ours don't smoke even when accelerating hard. You can even barely see smoke coming out of the exhaust in idle.

      I haven't heard anyone or any member in our group complain about belching issues with their D-Max and Alterra. Again, like what you said, it depends on the type of fuel they use.

      Delete
    10. for those people who are complaining that the mux is slow so 11.2 seconds is slow for a ladder frame suv? you gotta to be kidding me hahahaha

      Delete
    11. I would advise you to take that 11.2 seconds with a grain of salt. I highly doubt it can reach 100 km/h in that time. 13-15 seconds might be possible but not 11 seconds. A good idea is to cross check other sources other than C! magazine. I don't know exactly where to look though.

      Delete
    12. so you dont trust C! magazine about their reviews so they are lying.

      Delete
    13. The 3.0 is on the 11 second range, you're probably right, the 2.5 may take a little bit longer to reach 100. But I don't think the 2 second difference is a deal breaker.

      Delete
    14. Its not that I don't trust them. There are many factors that help decrease or increase acceleration so their results may not be accurate. I'm just advising you to check other sources other than C! magazine. What would really be better is that if someone can provide the official manufacturer's 0-100 time.

      Delete
    15. yup the only way to confirm it is to put it to the test and time it, my guess would be 12-13 seconds for 4x2

      Delete
    16. So yeah. Basically the mu-x is slow. Slower than an average budget subcompact. Pathetic.

      Delete
    17. you can buy a subcompact if you want hahahaha

      Delete
  2. Wow,,upgraded Crosswind pagong..

    ReplyDelete
  3. That's isuzu for you. The bulk of the mux's buyers will probably be old time crosswind owners, so they're already desensitized to isuzu's slow engine and smoke belching nature.

  9. @ulysses, how's the ride on the 3rd row?

    1. Can't really say since we didn't use the third row seats during our drive. The second row though feels bouncier than the Trailblazer, but is still comfortable enough even over long distances.

      Delete
    2. did you test the 0-100 km/h acceleration?

      Delete
    3. No need to test that... If people tested the 0-100 km/h, things would look pretty ugly for the mu-x.

      Delete
    4. I know this car is not built for racing But it would still be nice if they will test the 0-100 acceleration just like in other countries where they have figures to show the actual test, if its slow then so be it wont Really be an issue for potential buyers, just look at the toyota fortuner non vnt(102 hp) when it first came out it was selling like hotcakes. 90% of filipino buyers dont really care about horsepower.

      Delete
    5. Correction: 90% of filipino buyers are misinformed and ignorant.

      Delete
    6. you don't really have a say in that then do you, you just like to belittle and insult people who want to spend their own money (and not yours by the way). If you wanted to inform and educate the filipino buyers, try pulling and not pushing, convince them why your ideas are better than theirs...calling them names, insulting and belittling doesn't help, in fact it does the opposite.

      Delete
    7. @anaon 4:22
      ..the question is why then would you ask about that 0-100?

      Anyway, it's true most, I would dispute that 90%, don't care about power. Why else, would that pathetic but overpriced Crosswind be here in our country. You get what you want so that's what Isuzu is giving Filipinos.

      Delete
    8. oh come on you dont really have to be a "mr know it all" guy when buying cars as long as you are happy with your purchase then thats what really counts, most buyers still prefer the exterior looks of a vehicle they dont really care if the product that other brands are selling has the highest hp output but does'nt have that x-factor when it comes to looks, perfect example is the trailblazer vs montero and fortuner, until now the trailblazer cannot beat the fortuner and montero when it comes to sales even if it has the highest hp output why is that?

      Delete
    9. is there something wrong if i ask the 0-100 acceleration? i just wanna know thats it.

      Delete
    10. no, no, no, no, no! you're not allowed to know the 0-100 acceleration, Mr. Know-it-all will not allow it! God damm*t! just believe in Mr. Know-it-all that it's slow, that's all you need to know, now go back to your room, no dinner for you...sincerely, Mr. Know-it-all LOL

      Delete
  10. The author tried his best to say nice things about the MUX and I can understand that. How can you insult the host of that junket? But was honest enough to say that in overtaking at some crucial speed one would wish for more 30hp in the motor.
    There's just no going around it. That 2.5 lacks the power to carry the heavy MUX, with automatic gearbox, add a full load of passengers and cargo, 136hp is just not enough. High torque alone is good for city traffic, highway driving needs added hp. Period.

    1. for 4x4 the 2.5 is not enough but for the 4x2 variant its more than enough

    2. I like how the article sugarcoated on how slow the mu-x actually is. There's no way around it though, the mu-x is really SLOW. Those who say otherwise are Isuzu butt kissers.

      Sorry to say this, it wouldn't make much difference.

    4. i dont know about you, but i can attest that the 4x2 manual mux is just as fast as the 3.0 fortuner ive seen it run in nlex

      Delete
    5. More like just as slow as the 3.0L fortuner. The fortuner is old tech so its not surprising. Still, they're both really slow. Even a measly 2.0L compact sedan can easily outrun both of them.

      Delete
    6. Really? then you have keen eyes to know it was a manual and the other a 3.0

      Delete
    7. hahaha how fast do you want an suv to go? like a bugatti veyron?, comparing a ladder frame suv to a 2.0 liter sedan is like comparing apples to oranges, its acceptable that a 2.0 liter sedan should really be able to outran a ladder frame suv even a 200 hp trailblazer wont win any drag race versus a 2.0 liter sedan

      Delete
    8. its easy to distinguish if its a manual or auto mux, the one that i saw in nlex was the base model there are no automatic base model mux.

      Delete
    9. I dunno.. How about as fast as a 2.0L sedan?

      Delete
  11. then a ladder frame suv is not for you, if you want a fast suv look for a forrester 2.0 xt turbo or a sta fe 2.2 crdi

    5. No. The question is how long did it take to reach 160km/h? Any car can do that but how fast? Kaya nga paulit ulit ako sabi na ilang years kasi alam ko sobrang tagal nyan bago umabot ng 160km/h.

Kahit anong dyno mo nyan, walang kwenta dahil tulad ng sabi mo real world nga dapat subukan. Wala man akong mu-x pero based sa mga given info, sa 0-100km/h mga 13-15 seconds daw ito which is already slow, what more pa kaya sa 0-160km/h?

      Search mo sa youtube 3.0L na mu-x, 11 seconds pa nga ang 0-100km/h. Kahit sa 3.0L variant mabagal pa rin.

      Living a good life ka pa dyan. May point ka naman, wala kang ginagawa sa buhay kaya living a good life talaga. Masarap ba ang buhay tambay?

      Anyway, back to your so-called proof, I have a question about the first two videos. Are you 100% sure that it is a stock 3.0L mu-x? I'm not as enthusiastic about the mu-x as you are so enlighten me, how sure are you that it is stock?

      I'll be waiting for your reply Mr. Boy Tambay.

  25. Gusto ko lang po i-appreciate ang progress ng comments dito. Ang DAMI ng opinions and views and a lot seems to be loaded with sentiments or emotions even. Also, gusto ko rin share ang opinion ko in terms of the much-talked-about idea: underpower. Sa akin kasi, when i decided to go for toyota fortuner g a/t vnt, i accepted na "weaker" sya in terms of power compared to the likes of montero vgt and more so TB. kasi naman, i definitely would not run my vehicle in such hurried manner and high speeds even in express ways. Even more kapag kasama ko ang pamilya ko. My disposition was best bang for my "limited" budget. So i think sa mga katulad ko na buyer, MU-X may really be a good choice. To be honest, had i delayed my purchase, malamang ma-consider ko rin ang MU-X a/t. salamat at merry xmas!

    1. yan din naging situation ko 2 yrs ago, kakalabas lang ng chevy trailblazer, ininspect ko Fortuner 2.5g vnt a/t, Montero 2.5gls a/t, Chevy TrlBzr...nanalo din Fortuner kahit napakabago ng TrlBzr dahil mas tiwala ako sa Toyota at sa maangas na hood scoop hehehe. kung makita mo fit and finish ng Trailblazer that time, mapapaisip ka pano at bakit pumasa eto sa quality control...di lang maganda pagkagawa o minalas lang at panget ang showroom unit nila that time pero long story short, Fortuner napili ko at di ako nagsisisi...oo luma, mas mahina, matagtag (dati) pero masaya ako sa napili ko, kahit konting sisi wala. Ngayon, pinagiisipan ko etong MU-X, pero mainam na antayin ko nalang ang bagong parating na Montero at Fortuner...sandali nalang naman

  26. hindi naman priority ng isuzu philippines ang too much power. from the very beginning, fuel efficiency ang pinaka-priority nila. syempre pag mas malakas ang makina, malakas din uminom ng diesel.

    ReplyDelete
  27. ilang kgs ba difference ng gross vehicle weight ng fortuner sa mu-x? 8hp lang difference nila pero nung lumabas ung vnt ng toyota, may nagsabi ba na underpowered ito? ung non-vnt nila na 102hp lang, underpowered sya pero bakit madami pa rin bumibili? kasi toyota ito?

    and yung montero non-vgt, may nagsabi din ba na underpowered ito? 136hp din kasi sya.. maybe it's because hindi sya vgt kaya acceptable?

    tsaka bakit pinagtatalunan kung how long does it take to reach 100km/h from a standstill? magddrag race ka ba? and yung 180km/h ng ibang brand, maachieve mo ba dito sa highway natin na max lang ng 100km/h?

    tsaka nagtataka din po ako bakit pinagcocompare yung subcompact at mu-x sa 0-100 eh magkaiba sila?

    there's nothing to compare pag dating sa 0-100 in this segment kasi family car po ito. hindi po ito sports car. and may mga mature driver po na dahan-dahan lang po magdrive from standstill, like my dad.

    sa tingin ko nasa pagiging mature ng driver when it comes to driving habit. yung mga gusto ng matutulunin at mabilis maka 0-100, yun ung mga immature driver.

    sarili ko lang na kasabihan: okay lang na maging mabagal, makakarating ka rin naman sa iyong paroroonan.

    11. Bobo ka. That photo actually proves nothing. Madami nga sasakyan ang kaya umabot niyan. Sabi ko nga kahit ang innova na sobrang underpowered kaya naman umabot ng 160km/h. Ang basehan ko kung bakit underpowered ang mu-x ay dahil sa tagal niyang umabot ng 160km/h.

      Ang talagang gusto ko makita eh kung gaano ba kabilis o kabagal umabot ng 160km/h ang mu-x. Ilang seconds ba? Kung underpowered siya, eh di matagal talaga bago niya abutin ang ganoong speed. Hay naku, napaka bobo mo naman dong. Nawawalan na akong ng tiwala sa kinabukasan ng bansa kung may bobong katulad mo na gumagala dito.

    6. i drive both a sedan and a crosswind and base on experience on driving a crosswind mabagal talaga acceleration nya. Pero as far as i know Isuzu design philosophy is understressed engine:low operating costs and once i see "low" ok na sa akin. i dont mind na di sya aabot ng 160 or kung gaano katagal umabot ng 160kph. Importante sa akin yung 0-80 for city driving. And since bibilhin mo ang MuX for torque mas mahalaga i think yung pulling power nito and the figures are good. Pero, mas mura Montero ng around 50k and mukhang maraming happy sa montero so kung may pera ako, Montero

    ReplyDelete
  38. meron din tayong sinasabing "Value for Money". Kayang tapatan ng Isuzu MU-X 4x2 AT ang features ng TOTL Trailblazer. Ikaw ba gusto mo mag-add ng P375,888 para lang sa additional 64hp and 180 N-m of torque? hindi lahat ng tao kayang bumili ng TOTL ng trailblazer. kaya may ibang choices eh. kaya nga madaming bumili ng MU-X 4x2 AT dahil napakamura nya para sa features nya. Eto na lang, kung engine ang issue nyo sa MU-X, wait for the next Montero, Fortuner and Everest. Malamang halos katulad na rin ng features ng MU-X yung mga yun. Kung ang Isuzu kayang maglabas ng halos TOTL ng ibang model sa mababang presyo, kaya din ng ibang brand yun.

    Sa mga "know-it-all" na gustong malaman ang 0-100 acceleration ng MU-X, di nyo na dapat malaman dahil family car po ito. Di po ito sports car. Matuto kayong madmaneho ng dahandahan during standstill.

    1. Unfortunately, some people only care about paper specs. Worse, use these figures to brag and ridicule other cars. Isuzu did a good job in putting all the necessary features while keeping the price very competitive (except for the base and TOTL variant).

      That is also the reason why I insisted to buy the 4x2 A/T, it's the cheapest mid level SUV, but it's got all the features of the 4WD. What's even more surprising is the inclusion of ESC, traction control and the 10 inch rear entertainment screen. No other SUV in this segment can match the level of equipment and value for money of the 4x2 LS-A.

    1. Poser ka. Wala kang tucson at lalong wala kang mu-x. Grammar mo pa lang halata na kung ano lang ang inabot mo sa buhay.

  46. ISA LANG MASABI KO. MAGALIT NA KAYO KUNG MAGALIT. BASTA DIESEL USAPING KANTO, USAPING KALYE, USAPING SARAO JEEP.KASI LAHAT NG DIESEL SA PINAS AY BULOK. KAYA ANG MGA NAGMAMANEHO AY BULOK DIN UTAK. KAMING NAKA KOTSE AT SUV AY INIS NA INIS SA INYO KAYA SA DAAN. TYPICAL NA PINOY KAU. MAY KARITON LANG AKALA LAMBORGHINI GAMIT. UMAKYAT NA HANGIN SA UTAK.

    1. Correct! Ang dami kasing feeling na mga owners dito ng mu-x. Akala nila mabilis ang sasakyan nila. Ayaw pa umamin na underpowered. Hahaha.

    2. Bakit kami aamin eh hindi nga? =)) Feeling mo naman napakatalino mo para manghusga. Na try mo na ba mu-X mag long driving sa highway? Kayo lang naman yung nagyayabang ng mga horsepower at torque figures na yan. Kung gusto niyo makipag karera edi wag Diesel SUV tignan niyo. No wait, baka matalo lang kayo ng 2.2 Santa Fe. LOL

    2. Which model and variant and why? Why not isuzu?
      i live in the city and based on my requirement of
      Fuel consumption
      Maintenance cost
      Ride height
      Safety features
      max budget of 1.5m
      Which one should i pick?

      Delete
    3. Kung 1.5m budget mo at sa city mo lang gagamitin pwede na subaru xv, nissan x-trail or mazda cx-5. Lahat ng requirement mo nasa mga sasakyan na yan.

      Delete
    4. But still, why not an MU-X?

      Delete
    5. Because of maintenance cost and its size. Will be mostly for city driving right?

  49. kahit hindi masyadong mataas ang hp ang mahalaga ay ang torque..
    hindi dapat sisihin ang bawat isa.. meron bumibili ng sasakyan with higher specs pero hindi nman bakal ang dibdib sa pagpapatakbo.. useless.. pero mahalaga ang acceleration kasi minsan pag nag overtake nabibitin.. bka mabangga pa kayo.. sawang sawa na akong lampasan ng commuters kaya i prefer higher specs ride.. hayaan na natin ang iba kung kuntento na sila sa 160kph.. napatunayan kong habang tumatagal hindi na ako kuntento sa 100-140 range.. realizing need for speed...

  51. Mga bobo nag-cocomment dito, kaka-walanag magbasa ng comments puro naman mga mang-mang. FYI, mga gag0ng t4nga, yung 2.5L diesel Fortuner/Hilux/Innova 3rd-world AUV triplets na walang VNT at intercooler ay 102HP lang, at yung Strada/Montero 3rd-world AUV twins na walang VGT ay 136HP lang! Marami ba nag-complain nung unang nilabas yung mga yun? Bakit naging mas common kesa sa Vios Taxi ang mga yun, ibig sabihin pwede na yun sa mga hunghang na nauul0l sa mga 3rd-world diesel AUVs. Kaya itong MU-X ay pwede na rin para sa kanila dahil updated design at marami standard features naman na.

    In short, kung okay sa inyo yung Fortuner at Montero mula noon dahil karamihan naman na binebenta sa mga modelong yan ay yung low-end variants (non-VNT/VGT, 2.5L), edi okay na rin dapat ito. So wag na kayo mag-away.

    Para sakin, I'm not interested in any of these 3rd-world SUVs anyway, binibigyan ko lang kayong mga mangmang ng tamang perspective.
