Isuzu MUX muscles up for 2017

Isuzu MUX 2017 Isuzu has muscled up the very popular MUX for 2017. A multiple winner of the 7 Seat 4WD award here at OzRoamer the Isuzu MUX has slipped a little behind the competition in the last 12 months and while the sales have been successful, the vehicle needed some updating. This is a mid-life update that focusses on the Euro 5 complaint engine and comfort features.

The Isuzu MUX remains arguably the best riding and handling of the Ute based 7 Seat 4WD wagons on the market and close on the best value. Added to this basis are the 2017 improvements.
