Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The MU-X may look and feel a bit more basic than the Everest or Fortuner, but its tough Isuzu truck underpinnings is this SUV’s secret weapon. Isuzu also builds big commercial engines, designed to be reliable and robust, and that DNA is this engine.

Pros
Great new engine
Capable off-roader
Decent third row

Cons
Cabin is starting to age
Boot is smaller than some rivals
No advanced safety equipment

Like the D-MAX ute on which it's based, the evolution of Isuzu UTE's MU-X seven-seat SUV has remained relatively slow, its latest update headlined by extra torque from its 3.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel (now 130kW and 430Nm, up from 380Nm) and a new six-speed automatic transmission (previously five).

Pros
Rugged and practical
Very comfy ride
Drop-down rear video unit

Cons
Lacking some new safety tech
Turbo lag from a standing start
Rather basic cab trim

By:

For 2021 Manual transmission discontinued.Other minor changes to standard and optional feature availability.

Pros
Impressive number of features for your money
For its size, easy to get in and out of
Simple control layout

Cons
Engine sounds and feels a little coarse at higher speeds
All-wheel drive isn't offered
One of the smaller extra-small SUVs in the class

After only one year, Hyundai discontinues the standard manual transmission. All models now have a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). The Venue also drops the standard steel wheels, with the base model now riding on a set of alloy rims. The Convenience package, which was previously optional on the SEL, now becomes standard on that trim level. It includes blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, and a sliding armrest.

PROS
Excellent value,
surprising passenger space,
many standard driver assists.

CONS
Apathetic highway acceleration,
busy highway behavior,
missing some desirable options.
