The sure-footed Isuzu Mu-X 4×4 LS-A makes the additional expenses of an offroader easy to bear. There’s the 100Kg additional weight, the 1kml hit on fuel economy, and that P100k sticker price premium typical to 4×4 variants. 

But, on the Mu-X 4WD SUV, those drawbacks fade away the moment you hit rough country. And, with some contrived shortshifting on the 5-speed automatic gearbox (using her sequential manual override) it’s quite feasible to turn the big bruiser into a city commuter, or bring her economically up to highway cruising speeds–to just sip diesel while still en-route to those fun, far flung hinterlands that the Mu-X 4×4 is built for.
