Kota Kinabalu (October 31, 2016) – Isuzu Malaysia Sdn Bhd marked the 10th consecutive year of its sponsorship of and participation in Borneo Safari with a four vehicle media team.
The seven-seater Isuzu mu-X Monster is making its debut accompanied by three ‘Borneo Safari-proven’ Isuzu D-Max Monsters.
The vehicles, carrying 12 invited members of the media from Peninsular Malaysia, Sabah and Sarawak, were flagged-off in Kota Kinabalu this morning.
Modifications to the Isuzu mu-X were limited to the exterior as the 2.5-litre VGS turbo Intercooler diesel engine matched to a 5-speed automatic transmission with sequential shift remained stock standard.
Isuzu Malaysia Sdn Bhd Executive Director Hajime Machimura expressed confidence in the ability of the Isuzu mu-X to excel despite the rough terrains and treacherous weather expected in the 2016 Borneo Safari.
“Although it is a lifestyle SUV, the Isuzu mu-X shares the same tough DNA as our Isuzu D-Max pick-up, which has repeatedly proven itself in every edition of Borneo Safari since its debut in 2005. It is definitely all set for more,” he said.
