When it comes to seven-seater MPVs, one of the most popular car segments in the Philippines, a lot of models come to mind. But why settle for just seven seats when there’s a better eight-seater option?

This eight-seater option is the Maxus G50 MPV. Introduced to rock the family MPV segment, this new vehicle comes with many options you’d pay extra for in its competition.

It’s hard to miss the Maxus G50 because it comes in colors you expect to see on custom rides, like Deep Golden, Metal Black, Polar Ash, Warm Argent, Warm White, Water Blue, and the striking Roland Purple.

The G50 pairs it with more modern design features like a massive front grille, hawkeye headlights, LED daytime running lights across the model range, LED taillights, large alloy wheels, and a rear spoiler.

The G50 ups the ante in its interior as well. Depending on the variant, there’s a choice of fabric or two-tone leather seats. They also come with large center LCD displays.

Passengers will enjoy the wireless phone charging, power-adjustable front seats, automatic climate control with rear aircon vents. The Elite and Premium variants get a 12.3-inch entertainment system, 360-degree camera system and leather seats. The Premium gets LED headlights, a panoramic moonroof, and seatback tables to work while on the go.

The G50 is no slouch with a powerful turbocharged, four-cylinder 1.5-liter direct injection gasoline engine under the hood. It produces 169-Ps at 5,500 rpm with 250-Nm of torque between 1,700-4,300 rpm. This is mated to a seven–speed dual clutch automatic transmission for both convenient automatic operation or spirited manual shifting.

The driver is just as pampered with features like keyless entry with push-button start, cruise control, a tire pressure monitor, and a power tailgate.

Go ahead and compare as the G50 matches if not outdoes its rivals in terms of safety. It has driver and passenger front airbags, an electronic parking brake with auto hold, three-point seatbelts all around, ISOFIX child seat compatibility, front and rear disc brakes, Electronic Stablization Program (ESP), EBA+HHC, and front and rear parking sensors.

With so much included, the Maxus G50 hopes to be a value-for-money proposition, ideal for many families that want to get the best value for their purchase.

Maxus calls it a “more–in-one” MPV simply because it goes beyond the usual equipment list you’ll find in other cars in the segment.

The G50 is available in three trim levels, Pro (P1.088 Million); Elite (P1.168 Million), and; Premium (P1.288 Million).

Besides these features, owners of the G50 can enjoy “Max” quality, efficiency and convenience of aftersales products, services, and worry-free ownership. This is thanks to a warranty coverage that is five-years long or 100,000 kms, whichever comes first. You’ll also get 24/7 emergency roadside assistance and on-site servicing for corporate fleet accounts.

The Maxus G50 is already available at all Maxus showrooms and can be seen online at their website.
