The Maxus G50 is the brand’s entry to the growing MPV segment in the Philippine market. It competes with the likes of some mainstream nameplates like the Toyota Innova. You’d actually be surprised at how well-equipped the G50 is. Despite its affordable price range, you get a generous amount of features for less.
It’s a well-packaged MPV that gives you and your family a slew of convenience features for your trip. While there are a lot of striking factors with the G50, we’ve managed to pick some of our favorites. Here are the top 7 reasons to love the Maxus G50.
The utilitarian look works, and pleases the eyes
Like most MPVs, the Maxus G50 looks utilitarian, all thanks to its minivan-like dimensions. It even looks nice in a shade of Roland Purple. It's got a massive grille, serving as the strongest highlight of its frontend. Also standard across the range is a pair of LED daytime running lights (DRLs). Despite having no fog lights across its variant range, the Maxus G50 still looks good as it is, plus, it’s also understandable given that there are only a few places in the Philippines that regularly get fog. Wheel sizes actually vary per variant. While the Pro trim gets 16-inch alloys, the Elite and Premium trims, on the other hand, get larger 17-inch alloys.
It's got a large and functional infotainment system
One of the main highlights of its interior is the touchscreen infotainment system. Exclusive on the range-topping Premium is the glorious 12.3-inch display that’s paired with a 6-speaker audio system. The rest of the variant ranger get a slightly smaller 8-inch infotainment system that supports the same functions, though it’s only paired with a 4-speaker system.
The 360-degree Camera is one useful feature
Aside from the front and rear parking sensors, higher-end variants of the Maxus G50 can be had with a 360-degree camera, a feature that’s found on most modern vehicles nowadays. This makes parking and maneuvering a breeze for the minivan-like MPV.
It has a power tailgate
Take advantage of the Maxus G50’s spacious cargo by opening its power-operated tailgate. This feature is made exclusive on the top-of-the-line Premium variant which is priced at just under P1.4-million pesos.
This MPV is motivated by a small yet frugal engine
Who says small displacement engines won’t take you places? All variants of the Maxus G50, except for the entry-level Comfort, come with a small yet frugal 1.5-liter turbocharged gasoline motor that produces a healthy 167 hp and 250 Nm of torque. The said mill is paired with a 7-speed Dual-clutch transmission (DCT), while power is sent to the front wheels.
It even has an auto-brake hold function
During heavy traffic or even on steep inclines, it wouldn’t be much of a problem for the Maxus G50 all thanks to its auto-brake hold feature. With just a push of a button, the system automatically holds the brakes when at a stop, making your drives a bit less of a hassle than the usual.
Now, we’re probably down to the most important aspect of all: pricing. SRP for the Maxus G50 starts at P948,000 for the 1.3-liter MT Comfort. Next up is the 1.5 AT Pro which retails at P1,088,000. The 1.5 AT Elite, on the other hand, is priced at P1,168,000, and lastly, the range-topping 1.5 AT Premium retails at P1,338,000.
