The machine born to lure attention has been reborn with a sharper and sportier look to claim its throne of Adventure Utility Pickup in India.
Fog Lamp Chrome Bezel, Bi-LED Headlamp, Rear Chrome Bumpers, B-Pillar Blackout Film, and a Roof Rail that can carry 55kg compliments the sportier looks pretty well.
Perforated Black Leather Seats, 6-way electrically adjustable driver seat, Integrated 7 inch touchscreen infotainment system, combined with an automatic AC that has inbuilt pollen filter decorates the interior.
The 2500 cc turbocharged DOHC 16 valve diesel engine produces 100 kW (134 hp) and 320 Nm of torque to take on difficult terrains. The engine is mated with a drive system that has 3 different modes - 2H, 4H, 5L -to suit various necessities. These modes can be changed while driving below a speed of 100kmph.
Loaded with safety features such as ABS with EBD and BA, ISOFIX, etc the vehicle offers a decent level of safety, but there is room for improvement in the safety front.
The rival of this AUV from Isuzu in terms of functionality would be the Indian manufacturer Mahindra’s Scorpio Getaway.
