    Pros

    Good-looking crossover SUV

    As we’ve briefly covered above, one of the strongest suits of the Maxus D60 is probably its looks. At the front end, the crossover SUV sports a stylish cobweb grille that kind of gives us a Lexus vibe. This is flanked by an aggressive-looking LED headlamps and fog lamps on each side. At the rear is a seamless-looking horizontal taillamp that hovers over the bold M-A-X-U-S logo. It rides on 18-inch alloy wheels.

    Inside, you get similarly good-looking interiors with premium leather seats, an eight-inch infotainment system, as well as A/C vents for the rear passengers.

    Overall, the Maxus D60 makes you feel like you’re getting your money’s worth — at least in terms of looks.

    Comfortable suspension

    One of the more notable things one would observe when driving — or riding — a Maxus D60 is its suspension system.

    At the front are independent MacPhersons, while the rear has a multi-link independent setup. This arrangement results in a smooth ride that allows the Maxus D60 to glide easily on both paved urban roads and rough rural thoroughfares.

    In addition, the Maxus D60 offers easy handling, having been equipped with electronic power steering technology.

    A peppy engine

    One of the good things about the Maxus D60 is its high-spirited engine. Under the hood is a 1.5-liter gasoline power plant mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. This powertrain setup makes a respectable 167 horses and 250Nm of torque.

    Its 1.5-liter engine promises enough power for city driving as well as your occasional provincial outings.

    Cons

    Cramped third-row seats

    One of the main drawbacks of getting the Maxus D60 is living with a relatively cramped third row. Granted that it’s a crossover, but you’d have to consider who to bring and who to put on the third-row when planning weekend trips.

    An adult could feel comfortable riding at the back but could be uneasy during long trips. Expect teens to feel right at home on the third row but be careful not to put your Cherifer-gurgling nieces and nephews at the rear as they might feel a little confined.

    Infotainment screen could be a bit blurry

    The infotainment system on the Maxus D60 sure is larger than most of its competitors, but those who are particular with the quality of the display may notice that despite its size, it could get a bit blurry.

    For those who are picky with their onboard infotainment, this could be a deal-breaker.

    Verdict

    The Maxus D60 definitely has its shortcomings, but they are too inconsequential and can easily be forgiven given the other perks you get.

    The Maxus D60 is currently offered in two variants: the Elite and the Pro. They are priced at P1,148,000 and P1,338,000, respectively.
