Maxus G50 Review
Maxus G50 Overview
Maxus Philippines is a relatively new player in the Philippine auto industry. Officially launched mid last year by the Ayala-owned AC Industrials, Maxus is the sixth automotive brand under the conglomerate’s burgeoning portfolio. For those not familiar with the automaker, Maxus is a Chinese owned automotive brand with English tradition. The long British roots of the company go as far back as early as the 1900s. To make sure that Maxus becomes competitive, it offered vehicles that Filipinos are clamoring for, flexible family vehicles in the form of SUVs and van, one of which is the Maxus G50. The G50 is an 8-seater compact MPV powered by a turbocharged automatic petrol engine. Locally, the G50 is offered in three variants: the top-of-the-line 1.5T Premium, mid-trim 1.5T Elite, and the base model 1.5T Pro.
Maxus G50 Interior
Inside the Maxus G50 Premium and Elite, there is a spacious cabin with modern features you won’t normally expect on the usual MPVs. The familiar dashboard set up boasts of a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system partnered to a 6-speaker sound system that adds a contemporary vibe to a traditional set up of analog instrument cluster, multifunction steering wheel, and round knobs. For connectivity, this China- assembled compact MPV comes with Bluetooth and USB ports. There’s even a mobile wireless charging pad that comes standard which is often an add-on option even to some luxury vehicles. For upholstery, the leather-clad, power adjusting seats can accommodate 8 passengers comfortably with an option for the middle row for captain chairs which brings the seating capacity down to 7. Rear seats have 60:40 split with the second row having additional recline and slide with third-row easy entry function, while the third row can be folded flat to maximize cargo space.
Maxus G50 Exterior
For an MPV, the G50 boasts a robust exterior design. The gargantuan dual front chrome grille takes up most of the bumper and adds an aggressive look to the vehicle. It is flanked with air inlets at the bottom. The angular, sleek LED headlights with daytime running provide the modern look. On the side are aerodynamic creases and chrome trim accents on the window. At the rear is an almost flat back with LED taillights. On top are roof rails and a panoramic sunroof. The Maxus G50 measures 4,825 mm long, 1,825 mm wide, 1,800 mm tall, and has a wheelbase of 2,800 mm. It rides on a set of 17-inch alloy wheels wrapped in 215/ 55 R17 tires. It comes in 7 color options that are exclusive to certain trims. Choices include Roland Purple, Polar Ash, Deep Golden, Warm White, Warm Argent, Metal Black, and Water Blue.
Maxus G50 Ride & Handling
When it comes to handling, the Maxus G50 delivers. The steering wheel is responsive and accurate especially when taking in curves and turns with minimal body roll despite the vehicle’s height. There’s minimal intrusion during shifting and accelerates and decelerates smoothly as it should. The turbocharged engine and front-wheel drivetrain add to a smooth and controlled ride. The combination of front Macpherson independent and rear torsion beam suspension system provides a cushioned trip, be it a short distance or a long adventure. Insulation is good as the noise, harshness, and vibration are kept at a minimum. An automatic air conditioning system with rear vents ensures all passengers get a pleasant ride. The engine provides balance in terms of performance and fuel efficiency which is what most Filipino buyers look for when choosing a family car.
Maxus G50 Engine & Fuel Consumption
All three models of the Maxus G50 are fitted with the same 1.5 L 4-cylinder, inline, turbocharged, and intercooled direct-injection gasoline engine that delivers a maximum output of 169 PS at 5,500 rpm and 250 Nm of peak torque at 1,700 – 4,300 rpm. The 1,490cc with a 50-litre tank capacity engine is Euro 6 standard compliant and comes mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and uses an electronic power steering system.
Maxus G50 Braking & Safety
For its affordable price tag, this China assembled with English heritage MPV comes packed with the usual safety and convenience technology. First, the vehicle utilized double-layer welding technology for an added layer of protection. Second, safety and convenience tech features include driver and front passenger airbags with added front side airbags for the top-spec variant; ISOFIX; tire pressure monitoring; engine immobilizer; keyless entry and push start; cruise control; and power tailgate. For the parking-assist system, the G50 Premium and Elite models come standard with front and rear parking sensors, park distance control, and 360 degrees panoramic view reverse camera while the basic Pro still comes with a rear parking sensor and reverse camera. For braking, the G60 is fitted with disc brakes in both the front and rear. The system is further enhanced by electronic parking brake with auto hold, emergency brake assist, and hill hold control.
Maxus G50 Verdict
The Maxus G50 compact MPV is a good choice for a family vehicle. It is flexible and has tons of modern tech and features to keep its passengers safe. Do note though that since Maxus Philippines is a relative newcomer in an already well-established local auto industry, expect that dealerships on other parts of the country will take time and is something that you should consider when buying a vehicle. Especially for parts and aftersales service support. Although the AC industrials are already aggressively pursuing expansion for its automotive brands, the current pandemic might put a damper on their rollout.
