The MU-X facelift also gets updated safety systems including an ADAS suite of features such as lane-keeping assist, traffic jam assist, adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, and rear-cross traffic brake on the top variants. There’s also a surround-view monitor, which gives a 360-degree view of the SUV including what’s under the vehicle’s floor when off-roading. 


Power on the Thai-spec MU-X comes from two diesel options. The entry-level trims get the 1.9-litre engine with 148 bhp, whereas the top variants get the 3.0-litre motor with 187 bhp on offer. Power goes to either the rear wheels or all four wheels via the 6-speed automatic transmission.
