The refreshed MU-X gets a sharper and more aggressive face which features a bolder grille and new Bi-LED projector headlamps. It also gains new features like hill start assist, descent control and an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system.
Under the hood of the latest MU-X variants is a more powerful 3.0-liter 4JJ1-TCX "Blue Power" oil-burner that produces 175hp and 380Nm of torque. 4WD models get Terrain Command Dial. This allows the driver to shift from 2H to 4H mode by simply twisting a knob, even up to speeds as high as 100km/h. For 2018, the lineup further expands with the addition of the 4x2 variants powered by the new 1.9-liter RZ4E turbodiesel, it produces 148hp and 350Nm of torque. The older 2.5 diesel variants are still offered.
Silky Pearl White paint is available for an additional P10,000.
