The Maxus G50 is one of the newer entries into the MPV segment in the Philippines. The automaker has stayed true to its tagline of maxing out its vehicles as the G50 comes well equipped with a host of features everyone will surely enjoy. To add to that, the MPV is also one of the larger vehicles in its segment and even comes with an 8-seat capacity, further distinguishing it from the rest of its 7-seater competitors. With that said, here are a couple of reasons why the Maxus G50 is a great MPV.
Turbo power under the hood
In a sea of 1.5-liter naturally aspirated motors, the Maxus G50 takes it up a notch by adding a turbocharger into the mix. This makes it one of the more powerful gasoline-powered MPVs in the segment as it can push out 167 hp and 250 Nm of torque from its 1.5-liter motor. Even in its entry-level form, the G50 is still brought power to the table as it pushes out 150 hp and 230 Nm of torque from its 1.3-liter engine. This gives the Maxus MPV more than enough power to get up to speed even when fully loaded with 8 passengers.
Space for everyone
The Maxus G50 is one of the larger vehicles in its segment. It measures 4,825 mm in length, 1,825 mm in width, and 1,778 mm in height, this means that there is more room inside the vehicle to comfortably seat 8 occupants. This makes it an ideal choice for those looking to get a family vehicle or for those who want a great road trip car. The second row can be moved forward to allow more space at the rear for the third-row occupants. That being said, the third road also has plenty of space as even taller passengers can find a comfortable seating position without it impeding the people in the second row.
Manuevering made easy
Despite its large size, maneuvering the Maxus G50 is made easy thanks to two key features. The first is the inclusion of a 360-degree camera for the MPV. This makes it easier for the driver to see what’s around the vehicle, especially during parking. Aside from this it also helps the driver maximize the space need for the vehicle in the event that tight turns are needed. The other key feature is the light steering that the Maxus G50 has. It’s so lightweight in fact that you could almost steer the vehicle with one finger. That being said, however, the steering does stiffen up when it comes to higher speeds for a more comfortable and planted steering feel.
The Maxus G50 maxes out its appeal by having an affordable and attractive price tag. You can get your hands on the MPV for slightly less than P950,000 for its entry-level variant which puts it right in the middle of the sweet spot for other vehicles in its segment. For those who want the higher-end model, it will cost you P1,338,000, which still puts it well within the affordable range in terms of its competition. It’s a breath of fresh air in the segment that is normally either dominated by 1.5-liter naturally aspirated motors or by the occasional 2.8-liter turbo diesel motor.
Charging ports for everyone
As the Maxus G50 is an MPV it needs to satisfy the multiple needs that owners might need. This not only includes hauling cargo and people but other more modern needs as the charging of devices. With that said, the G50 does not disappoint as it comes with a plethora of charging ports available for its occupants. The MPV has a charging pad along with two USBs at the front, a USB port for the second row, and even another hidden USB port for the occupants at the rear. This gives every row access to a charging point if needed, an especially handy feature to have for those who have kids that are tech-savvy.
