Spinning off from the line of British commercial vehicle brand, Leyland Motors, the Maxus brand was born to continue the legacy with vehicles that ooze with style and capability for discerning car buyers. It’s a global marque, currently being offered in Europe, Asia, Oceania, and South America.
Maxus Philippines entered the Philippines on June 5, 2019, with two multi-purpose vehicles, the Maxus G10 and V80. Then almost exactly a year ago and just before the pandemic hit us with a lockdown, the Ayala-owned company introduced the T60 pickup truck.
Towards the end of the year, Maxus then offered the G50 MPV for those who want a slightly more compact option. The company started 2021 with a bang with its fifth model in the lineup, the D60 crossover.
From a stylish crossover to a highly capable cargo-hauler, Maxus has a model waiting for you.
The Maxus D60 is the brand’s latest offering, just launched at the start of February 2021. It’s a compact crossover with the top-spec Elite variant having a 7-seat configuration. The D60 prides itself with its intricate and outstanding design, partnered with a bevy of features such as an 8-inch infotainment system, leather seats, parking sensors, and six airbags.
More importantly, the D60 comes at an affordable price point for its segment, selling for P1,148,000 for the Pro variant and P1,258,000 for the Elite.
While minivans are usually vanilla in styling, the Maxus G50 begs to differ with its bold styling fronted by its massive grille and unorthodox color choices. But as we discovered in our tests, the G50 offers more than just good looks. Particularly favored is its true 8-seat capacity, as well as its massive 12.3-inch multimedia screen with 360-degree camera view – available even in its mid-variant offering.
Maxus sells the G50 from P948,000 to P1,288,000, with tech features increasing as you move along its four-piece variant range.
Among the first models that Maxus Philippines debuted in the country, the Maxus G10 is a large MPV that’s aggressively styled on the outside but a perfect vehicle to ferry your family in. It features leather seating for nine individuals, with captain seats available for the second and third rows. Space is the G10’s selling point, and you need to see it in person to have yourself convinced.
Maxus Philippines sells the G10 for P1,790,000. A G10 Assist variant is also available, which has a PWD seat that caters to the needs of older passengers or for those with disabilities. This variant has a sticker price of P2,189,800.
The G10’s tandem in Maxus Philippines’ launch in 2019, the V80 is the full commercial vehicle offering of the brand. The full-size van obviously banks on space, with the capability to haul up to 13 people for its passenger vehicle variant. It’s also being offered with a cargo variant that got rid of its rear seats, which is perfect for businesses that need a workhorse that can carry lots of materials inside a protected space.
The Maxus V80 Flex Cargo Van has a sticker price of P1,190,000, while the passenger variant V80 Comfort sells for P1,570,000.
Apart from the MPVs and crossovers, Maxus Philippines also offers a truck called the T60. It aims to stir the highly contested pickup segment in the country with its affordable pricing. In fact, the T60 is one of the most affordable trucks you can buy today, selling only for P998,000 for its Pro 4×4 MT variant, while the range-topping Elite 4×4 AT has a price tag of P1,328,000 – the most affordable 4×4 pickup truck today.
The Maxus T60 is powered by a 2.8-liter diesel engine with VGT, making up to 148hp and 360Nm of torque.
