    800-millimeter wading capacity

    While most SUVs can brave the metro’s flooded streets, only a few can take on the challenge of crossing deep bodies of water in the provinces.

    The Isuzu mu-X boasts an 800-millimeter (mm) wading capacity.

    Per the carmaker, the Isuzu mu-X has a redesigned air intake that was repositioned on the top-front edge of the engine hood and was aligned with the breather lines.

Past its multi-functional steering wheel is either a conventional 3.5-inch monochrome display or a 4.2-inch electroluminescent multi-informational display (MID) — if you got any of the higher trims.

    Complementing the large instrument panel is a 10.1-inch full touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Bluetooth connectivity.

    Advanced driving nannies

    The Isuzu mu-X is also equipped with an Advanced Driver Assist System (ADAS) allowing its owners to feel more safe while on the road.
