Imagine you’re buying a new SUV. What do you want from it? Good mileage? Good features? Premium Styling? What if you get all of that and so much more? But there’s a catch. You’re going to have to pay a premium to get all that. Yes, people are going to be reluctant to spend so much on a car, especially on an unknown brand. But ISUZU is here to change all that. Before you go ahead and veto ISUZU, have a good read about why ISUZU MU-X is among the best premium SUV available in Nepal.
Among the few premium SUVs available in Nepal, none can be compared to the ISUZU MU-X. It is the very definition of premium, offering a lot of features for its pricing.

Final Thoughts on Isuzu MU-X
Isuzu didn’t take much of a risk for their new facelift. Its pretty much the same car with few cosmetic changes topped off with few extra features. It lacks innovations which can be found in most luxury brands. Not that the old MU-X had any problems, it seems Isuzu could’ve done more. ISUZU played it safe. Especially with the price tag of Rs. 1.35 Crore, not everyone can justify such a large bet on a car. Unfortunately, this makes MU-X one of the more practical SUVs out of reach of the masses.
But I must commend them on improving more towards safety, the design and the overall essence of an SUV. Well, in the off chance, this might’ve undoubtedly driven the price so high. To recap everything in just a single sentence: ISUZU MU-X is a great SUV that not everyone can afford.
