After weeks of teasers from Maxus Philippines, the Ayala owned distributor of British bread commercial vehicles in the country has officially launched the Maxus G50. This marks the brand’s fourth vehicle to enter the market. The all-new 8-seater MPV comes feature-packed with everything that a budding family might need. It also comes with a powerful and capable 1.5-liter turbocharged gasoline engine that is mated to a dual-clutch transmission. The all-new Maxus G50 comes into the local automotive market with three variants each one coming with the same engine and transmission. The all-new G50 comes priced at the subcompact MPV level but brings with it the size and features of a compact MPV. This allows the vehicle to be priced competitively all while giving the prospective buyer the best value for money proposition possible.
On the outside, you are greeted by a massive grille that either comes in chrome or matte black depending on the variant. On either side of the large grille are sleek headlight housings that either come with halogen projector headlamps for the entry-level model or LEDs for the higher trim variants. LED daytime running lights are also present on the Maxus G50 and come as standard for the entire variant range.
Moving on to the side of the vehicle and you get a couple of character lines along with cameras located on the side mirrors of the MPV. The G50 also comes with a set of 16 or 17-inch wheels depending on the variant that helps give it a more premium feel.
At the rear, you are greeted with a boxy tailgate that comes with horizontal LED tail lamps and a chrome strip as an accent piece. Aside from this, a rear spoiler is also present in the vehicle for the Premium variant.
On the inside, you are greeted by either a black-themed interior with a gray headliner. For the higher trim-levels, two-tone leather upholstery is available with the vehicle. However, it is important to note that the leather seating material comes in a black and red color scheme with red being the accent color. The Maxus G50 also comes with a 12.3-inch touchscreen for the higher trim models and an 8-inch infotainment system for the entry-level variant. Both infotainment sizes come with two USB ports along with Bluetooth connectivity. Aside from this mobile wireless charging system is present in the vehicle along with a 4 or 6-speaker sound system depending on the variant. Climate controls come in either an automatic or manual form.
Those worried about the heat of the Philippines will be happy to know that the Mazus G50 comes with a rear aircon vent for the second row as standard for the entire model lineup.
Under the hood, you get a 1.5-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged gasoline engine that produces 169hp and 250 Nm of torque. The motor sends power exclusively to the front wheels via a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. This will be the standard motor and transmission for the entire G50 lineup as there is no manual transmission option available.
In terms of safety, the Maxus G50 comes with driver and front passenger airbags, front side airbags, an electronic parking brake with auto hold, 3-point seatbelts for all occupants, an electronic stability control program, and ISOFIX tethers. Parking sensors are also present in the model lineup, however, the entry-level Pro variant only gets them in the rear. A 360-degree camera is also available for the G50, however, it is not present in the Pro variant. The regular Pro variant does get a reverse camera which aids in maneuvering the vehicle. All variants of the all-new Maxus MPV get access to a tire pressure monitoring system as well.
