With the Maxus brand launching in the Philippines this June 5, 2019, the Ayala Corporation seems to be a little excited about its newest brand. With a variety in its lineup in other countries, the British brand holds a selection of cars that are composed of SUVs, vans, and commercial vehicles. There is still no word as to what models are coming – well, except for one. Pictures of the Maxus G10 Minivan rolling on Philippine roads have surfaced.
So it looks like one of the vehicles Ayala is launching is a minivan. Research online shows that the vehicle can be configured in different ways. Like most minivans, it comes with a modular seating setup. Consumers in other countries have the option to have this car in either a seven, nine, or ten seater configuration. This means that you can either have three or four rows of passenger space. In other countries as well, there are options for the type of seats you can get like a bench to maximize passenger capacity or a captain’s chair to maximize a single occupant’s comfort.
Globally, the van is powered by a 2.0L 4-cylinder turbocharged engine, a 2.4L naturally aspirated engine, or a 1.9L diesel engine. Specs for the engine have not yet been shown to us by Maxus, but because Maxus is available in Malaysia, the figures of the 2.0L turbocharged mill are at 225 hp and 345 Nm of torque which all fall under one variant. There is no confirmation yet as to what engine will be available in Philippine units.
It seems that the vehicle is being tested on roads, or it is being paraded by Maxus Philippines in hopes that people would raise an eyebrow when seeing the brand. It’s a nice break from the more common vehicles you see nowadays, and for the right price, the Maxus G10 could join the ranks of the Honda Odyssey or even the Toyota Alphard. Currently, it seems like the van will be a close competitor of the GAC GM8 because that too has a 2.0L turbocharged engine under its hood.
As far as interior shots are concerned, there are none, but expect coverage once we get to see it in real life and not in photos.
