Isuzu recently threw its hat into the SUV ring with the mu-X, going up against the likes of the Fortuner and Everest in the fiercely-competitive ‘affordable’ end of the full-sized family SUV market. It’s a battlefield, and it’s not only the intrinsic qualities of the vehicle that matter – it is also how readily it can be tailored to a family’s lifestyle; whether it revolves around cycling, watersports, touring or fishing.

For that reason, Thule is pleased to announce that they can offer a comprehensive range of travel-related solutions for buyers of the new Isuzu mu-X seven-seater.

Available products include the ubiquitous racks (cross bars) which attach to the standard roof rails and act as the platform to which an array of activity-specific accessories can be mounted. In this instance the aerodynamic, low-profile Wingbar Edge is the rack set of choice.

It boasts features such as double-moulded plastic caps for a sleek appearance which, along with the TrailEdge feature on the crossbars, reduces air resistance. That also means minimal impact on fuel consumption and low noise levels.

With little effort, the crossbars can be fitted with the likes of:
  • The Thule Canyon XT roof basket.
  • Thule Touring M luggage box, or similar
  • As many as four Thule ProRide bicycle carriers
  • Thule DockGrip – a versatile kayak carrier that’ll conform to a wide range of hull shapes and sizes
Says Richard Downey from Thule importer SA Sport & Cargo: “We pride ourselves on reacting swiftly to market demands. With this class of vehicle there is high uptake on accessories that go with the lifestyle family SUVs represent. The list here is by no means exhaustive and Thule have a product to carry virtually anything and everything.”

Thule lifestyle products for the Isuzu mu-X and just about any other vehicle you care to name are available from Thule Partner Stores, nationwide.
