Didnt realize this rare vehicle made it into TBhp ... A few months ago I was overtaken, rather shooed off the NH but a monstor - turned out to be this SUV but in a Special Avatar.

The one I saw was a solid white TN-Chennai regn MU7, with Yokohoma 31"*10" (offroading spec) tyres and a pretty sexy Matt Black Rims. It had the runing partys' flag up front and was driving like a maniac - but WOW the sheer presence of that SUV in those 31" tyres with -Ve offset rims (Tyres popped out of body line) was drool maal.

Sadly I dont have a pic, but if any Chennai person ever spots that car please post it here!!

Do we have any ownership reports/reviews of the MU7 here in team-bhp, any owners in here? Hows the Isuzu experience?

More Isuzu and MU-7 news - Production capacity at Sri City plant to go up to 1,20,000 units from 2016.

This report says "newly launched MU-7" (an event in Kolkata recently).

Source:Indian Express Bangalore edition, 11 June 2015 - Link

Can we expect an MU-7 official Team-BHP review anytime soon ?

There is a reason why the Indian Express is slowly disappearing. The picture is clearly of a D-Max and Isuzu is put a huge sign in the front so that the Indian Express journalist doesn't get confused, but apparently they did..

I checked this today , we picked 2 Trucks and these are running without any issues as expected . Not due for service yet but I expect this to be reasonable .

Yes they have some Grand plans for Indian market , we should have a 4 x 4 crewcab by early next Year and new generation MU-7 little later . They are in process of setting up dealership / workshops across country simultaneously setting up their own factory .

No major news in media on this SUV, mu7 after the news of AT variant's launch. By the looks it promising. Awaiting the official review to know more about the monster

Honestly after looking at the Isuzu website I guessed the price of the car at around 10 lakhs and thought it would be a good competitor to Force 1. But at 24 lakhs ? . That's funny for sure. The Fortuner, Pajero, Endeavor and Trailblazer will eat it for lunch .

Despite the 80's interiors and only 2WD version costing more than a 4WD Fortuner or the Pajero Sport, they manage to sell about 100 pieces a month. I wonder who the buyers are? Maybe they go by the size??

You can see a lot of it in Chennai especially around the suburbs.

The size is huge and the interiors aren't too bad. The MU 7 would be ckmfortable even in the third row.

They seem to be gaining a reputation for reliability. I spoke to a D Max owner and he was impressed with the vehicle .
