Isuzu Philippines Corporation’s (IPC) flagship SUV model now boasts of even more premium features in its 2013 Isuzu Alterra Urban Cruiser X version, offering the best value in the country’s full-size SUV segment.

The new features that the Alterra Urban Cruiser X received are intended to be the best. Included in the model’s Best Package is an entertainment system from Kenwood, which features a DNX7380BT audio/video head unit with a built-in 7-inch wide touch panel monitor, an iPod direct connector, integrated Bluetooth connectivity, CMPEG capability, and an SD card reader. Passengers in the back also get new black, headrest-mounted, high-definition LCD monitors. The system has a navigation-ready device as dealer-option.

The 2013 Alterra Urban Cruiser X’s exterior is likewise set apart by new exterior features including a rugged but elegant front chin; a European-inspired rear chin spoiler with reflector; smoked headlamps; redesigned foglamp garnishes that sport sharper edges; black step-boards; attractive yet functional rear spoiler with integrated high-mount LED stop lamps that have clear lenses; and smoked combination taillight clusters with chrome accents.

“The Isuzu Alterra has built a reputation for its combination of utility and luxury, of performance and fuel efficiency, of reliability and styling,” IPC President Ryoji Yamazaki said. “In the 2013 Isuzu Alterra Urban Cruiser X, these attributes are enhanced as the model receives additional premium features, which are poised to set the standard in the full-size SUV class.”

Available in four-wheel drive with four-speed automatic transmission, rear-wheel drive with four-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive with five-speed manual transmission, the 2013 Alterra Urban Cruiser X is offered in Starry Black, Mineral Gray and Silky Pearl White colors with optional pearl finish.
