ISUZU MU-X LS-T, the best seven-seat 4WD under $60,000
Isuzu UTE Australia’s all-new seven-seat SUV – the MU-X – has just received its first accolade with OzRoamer crowning the MU-X LS-T as the best seven-seat 4WD Under $60,000.
OzRoamer publishes the most comprehensive review of AWD SUV’s and 4WD’S for towing capability and off road ability – with this prestigious award being the result of rigorous subjective and objective testing throughout the year by a number of independent judges.
“This award illustrates the MU-X’s outstanding ability and versatility when tested under ‘real-world’ conditions,” said Dave Harding, Isuzu UTE Australia’s Assistant General Manager of Marketing & PR.
“It also highlights what a great value proposition the MU-X is when you compare its off-road and towing credentials with our more extravagantly priced competitors,” he added.
OzRoamer’s tester Anthony Hood said that the MU-X “performed effortlessly” during its evaluation.
“We took the Isuzu MU-X LS-T on a family holiday towing a 2800kg caravan through the narrow windy and hilly back roads of Tasmania. The MU-X never missed a beat. While towing we averaged about 14-15L/100Km and there was plenty of power and low down torque for the job. That is what I mean by sometimes the figures don’t translate to real world driving. The MU-X performed like it had another 100Nm of torque.
“What the Isuzu does though is make you really question why you would pay upwards of $80,000 on some of the other ‘family 4WD wagons’ it’s that good,” Hood concluded.
The MU-X LS-T is available at Airpower Alice Springs.
