Upcoming G50 MPV will be first gas-powered unit in Maxus PH lineup
The AC Motors-owned Maxus PH is just a few weeks away from the official unveiling of the eight-seater compact G50 MPV.
We've given you a few bits of information that we learned about the Maxus G50 earlier, which is set to compete with giants in its segment such as Toyota Avanza, Honda Mobilio and Suzuki Ertiga. Today, we are adding more details prior to the big reveal.
First, the Maxus G50 will come only in 1.5 gasoline-powered engine, making it the first in the local roster to run on petrol when it arrives. The 1.3 variant available in other markets will not be brought here.
Further, the power mill of the yet-to-be introduced MPV will be mated to a seven speed dual clutch transmission, which should provide the car some good fuel efficiency numbers.
However, despite the fact that it is fitted with a sole powertrain specification, the Maxus G50, which is close to the size of the Toyota Innova, will come in three variants.
The launch of the Maxus G50 could be the first digital launch for AC Motors since Kia—also owned by the Ayala group—won't be launching their supposed newest local lineup member until fourth quarter of this year.
Earlier, Maxus Philippines confirmed that the G50 will come in fun colors including Roland Purple, "designed to capture the fancy of young families."
