Isuzu has introduced the BS6 phase 2-compliant iterations of its India lineup: two pickups (V-Cross and Hi-Lander) and the mu-X SUV. All three cars have been given slight cosmetic tweaks and some feature upgrades. Let’s check them out:

Common Updates

Isuzu V-Cross Valencia Orange shade

The carmaker is offering a fresh “Valencia Orange” paint shade on all three models. Apart from the new paint option, the two pickups and the SUV now also come with idle-engine start/stop, low friction tyres and fluid warmer for the automatic transmission (AT) to improve fuel efficiency and reduce emissions.

Changes On All 3 Cars
