The Maxus V80 vs. other vans in the same price point


The Maxus V80 is the brand’s entry to the local utility van segment. There are two variants of the V80, with one focusing on hauling cargo while the other is designed to be a crowd carrier.

Both models — the Maxus V80 Flex and Maxus V80 Comfort — feature the same exterior amenities including halogen headlights, rear fog lamps, front wipers, passenger side sliding doors, and rear dual swing-out doors.

However, exclusive to the V80 Comfort model are other exterior features such as a front fog lamp, electrically adjustable exterior mirrors, and an electric step board.

Inside, the Maxus V80 Flex features fabric seats, front and rear lamps, front and rear A/C, a four-spoke steering wheel, and a radio with aux-in, USB, and Bluetooth which delivers audio to four speakers inside the van’s cabin. The Maxus V80 Comfort, on the other hand, adds 10 rear individual reclining seats.

Under the hood, both V80s are powered by a 2.5-liter turbo diesel engine mated to a six-speed manual. This powertrain setup puts out 134hp and 330Nm of torque.

In terms of safety, the cargo van offers ABS with EBD and an immobilizer, while the passenger van adds a rear parking sensor. Both models have their own respective seatbelts and airbags.

The Maxus V80 Flex is priced at P1,190,000 while the Maxus V80 Comfort is at P1,570,000.

For those who think that these Maxus vans aren’t quite what they're considering, here are other segment staples you might want to consider.

Nissan Urvan

Dubbed by the brand as the new “urban standard,” the Nissan Urvan offers vital exterior features like multi-reflector halogen headlamps with integrated side turn signal lamps and fog lamps, rear combination lamps, and an LED high-mount stop lamp. Of course, it has a sliding door and a tailgate with closure assist and a rear window defogger.


Inside, you get fabric seats, power windows, manual air-conditioning with rear A/C vents, a 2-DIN single in-dash CD, tuner, and aux-in with four speakers.

Power comes from a 2.5-liter cylinder diesel engine mated to a five-speed manual tranny which makes 127hp and 356Nm of torque.

Safety-wise, the Nissan Urvan comes with seatbelts and airbags.

The Nissan Urvan is offered in five variants with prices ranging from P1,440,000 to P1,866,000.

It offers a similar lighting setup like the other vans in this list including a multi-reflector halogen headlamp with integrated turn signals, headlamp integrated front clearance lamps, a side sliding door, wipers with intermittent mist, and a rear window defogger.
