Isuzu V Cross BS6 Production Ready Model Spotted Testing Ahead Of Launch: Spy Pics

Isuzu product range is yet to receive the BS6 update from the company. It was expected to arrive much earlier in the year closer to the BS4 deadline in the country. However, the Covid-19 ongoing pandemic has delayed the launch of SUVs in the Indian market.

Ahead of its launch, we have spotted a production-ready mule of the V-Cross pickup SUV testing in Bangalore. The test mule spotted did not wear any camouflage, which could mean that it is getting closer to production and eventually the launch as well.

Speaking about the SUV itself, the Isuzu V-Cross BS6 will feature subtle changes on the interior and the exterior as compared to the previous model. Most of the trims on the exterior of the BS6 SUV remain similar to the ones seen on the BS4 model. However, we expect it to feature refreshed tail-lamps.

Other features spotted on the test mule such as the roof rails, projector headlamps, side-step, a drop-down tailgate, external rear-view mirrors, front and rear bumpers, front scuff plate, radiator grille, and other features all look the same as the ones from BS4 model.

Although we could not spot the interior of the SUV, according to earlier reports it is expected to undergo subtle revisions to enhance the premium feel of the cabin. This includes a new dual-tone colour scheme with piano black accents replacing the chrome bits seen on its earlier counterpart.

Speaking about the engine, the V-Cross was offered in two engine options: a 1.9-litre and a 2.5-litre diesel engines. Both engines are expected to receive the BS6 update. The 1.9-litre unit was only offered on the top-spec trim with and came mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox. It produced 148bhp and 350Nm of torque.

While the lower-spec 2.5-litre engine was only offered with a five-speed manual gearbox. The powertrain produced 135bhp and 320Nm of torque — 13bhp and 30Nm of torque lesser than the top-spec unit. However, both the powertrains were offered with a selectable four-wheel-drive system. We expect the same power figures and set up to be carried forward to BS6 models.
