(UPDATED GALLERY) Soldiering on the platform that has proven its dominance in the Asian utility vehicle segment for years, Isuzu Philippines recently unveiled variants of the 2010 Crosswind.
The new Crosswind is visually distinct from its older versions, thanks to the liberal use of chrome in its exterior finish. There's the new chrome grille design sandwiched between a pair of halogen projector-type headlamps with crystal lens--the first and only one in its class. There's also the redesigned front bumper with a silver under-spoiler garnish, as well as new chrome rings around its foglamps. And then there's the chromed pair of power-folding side mirrors enhanced by amber turn-signal lenses. The Crosswind's refreshed look comes complete with a new spare tire cover that sports an embossed design, as well as a pair of multi-reflector rear combination lamp encased in chrome garnish cover.
Inside, the top-of-the-line Crosswind Sportivo one-ups its competitors by packing an ultra-wide touch-screen LCD audio unit. This works with the front seat headrest-mounted 7-inch high-resolution LCD monitors for second-row passengers. Other new interior add-ons are spread out across other Crosswind variants include the console box with integrated dual cupholders, and a second-row convenience tray.
The 2010 Crosswind comes in Fusion Orange (for the XUV variant), Granite Gray (XUV and XT variants), Moroccan Gold (Sportivo), Tundra Green (Sportivo), and Venetian Blue (XTi). Old favorites Ebony Black, Glacial White and Sterling Silver are also still available.
