Isuzu Philippines Corporation is bringing to the market its "best-ever Alterra model" in the Urban Cruiser X, which reportedly packs even more premium features while "offering the best value in the country's midsize SUV segment."
The new features that the Alterra Urban Cruiser X has inside are a Kenwood audio/video head unit that comes with a built-in, seven-inch-wide touch-panel monitor, an iPod direct connector, integrated Bluetooth connectivity, CMPEG capability, and an SD card reader. Paired to it are powerful 240W front speakers with tweeters and 280W rear speakers. Backseat passengers also get new front headrest-mounted, high-definition LCD monitors, while a navigation-ready device is available as a dealer option. Completing this latest Alterra model's sophisticated and luxurious interior are its matching black leather trim and black woodgrain accents.
For its exterior, the Alterra Urban Cruiser X sports an elegantly rugged front chin spoiler; a European-inspired rear chin spoiler with reflector; smoked headlamps that accentuate the projector headlamps; redesigned foglamp garnishes; black-finished stepboards; an attractive yet functional rear spoiler with integrated high-mount, clear-lens LED stop lamps; and smoked combination taillight clusters with chrome accents. In addition, two-eye reverse sensors and a wide-range reverse camera--which displays images in the entertainment system's touch-screen monitor--aid the driver in backing up in tight spots.
"The Isuzu Alterra has built a reputation for its combination of utility and luxury, of performance and fuel efficiency, of reliability and styling," said IPC president Ryoji Yamazaki. "In the 2013 Isuzu Alterra Urban Cruiser X, these attributes are enhanced as the model receives additional premium features, which are poised to set the standard in its class."
The Alterra Urban Cruiser X comes in three variants: a 4x2 with manual transmission at P1.528 million; a 4x2 with automatic gearbox at P1.585 million; and a slushbox-equipped 4x4 at P1.718 million.
