SUZU Philippines Corporation is ending its 10th anniversary on a high note. For the last quarter of the year, the diesel authority is selling limited-edition variants of the Crosswind XTi and Sportivo. And because 2007 marks the company's first decade in the country, the new Crosswind XTi LE has been given 10 new features that further make the best-selling Isuzu MPV an unbeatable proposition. This "Rated 10 Over 10" sales campaign runs from October to December only.

Of the ten new features on the limited-edition Crosswind, five can easily be spotted outside. First is the new pair of circular fog lamps on the front bumper for better visibility in foggy conditions. The second feature consists of blackout pillars and doorframes, and a Limited Edition sticker on the C-pillars. Third, three backing-up sensors have been integrated into the rear bumper, significantly improving safety when reversing. The fourth exterior enhancement is a sporty rear spoiler with third brake light. The last, and the most prominent are the new colors for the XTi LE: ebony black and crystal blue.

The remaining five new features can be found inside, where you will spend most of your motoring time getting pampered. First, the dashboard panels have been accented by silver, instantly making the overall look and feel of the cabin both classy and hip. Second, Isuzu has installed the Sony DV1000 single-disc in-dash DVD/CD/MP3 player for the improved aural pleasure of the passengers. The third interior feature is the perfect partner to the DVD player: two 7-inch headrest-mounted LCD monitors for the on-the-move entertainment of second- and third-row occupants.

Fourth, a new three-layer console box provides unparalleled storage convenience. Finally, a handsome combination of black sport jersey and vinyl now cover the seats, visually complemented by black floor carpets, seatbelts and trims.

"The new Crosswind LE is Isuzu's gift to our customers for supporting us all these past 10 years," said IPC president Keiji Takeda. "With 10 new features, this "value-for-money" limited-edition Crosswind XTi should be very popular in the market during the closing months of the year."

Isuzu Philippines is also offering the Sportivo LE in special holiday colors of pearl white and tornade red.

The Crosswind LE, powered by a robust, fuel-efficient and environment-friendly 2.5-liter 4JA1-L direct-injection turbodiesel, is priced at P1,070,000 for the Sportivo LE and P929,000 for the XTi LE.

Visit your nearest Isuzu dealership today as the Crosswind LE will only be available until December this year. With 10 new exterior and interior features, the XTi LE should be quickly snapped up by practical vehicle buyers who will find the vehicles' Isuzu heritage and value for money extremely difficult to resist.
