It officially joins the local MPV battle royale.

Maxus Philippines is determined to establish its foothold in the automotive market as it introduced a new model to its lineup. The G50 is Maxus PH’s latest addition to its range of light commercial vehicles, and it’s set to go up against the likes of the Mitsubishi Xpander, Honda Mobilio, Suzuki Ertiga, and Toyota Innova.

During the G50's online launch, AC Industrials and Maxus Philippines CEO Arthur Tan said that this MPV will be the "game-changer for the brand within the country."

The Maxus G50 measures 4,825mm long, 1,825mm wide, and 1,778mm tall along with a wheelbase of 2,800mm. With the said measurements, the G50 upends the Xpander, Mobilio, and Ertiga in terms of overall size. It also measures longer as compared to the Toyota Innova.

In terms of seating capacity, the Maxus G50 can accommodate up to eight individuals, which is a notch higher compared to the Mobilio and Ertiga that comes with a maximum room for seven passengers. As such, it seems that the Maxus G50’s overall dimension and maximum seating capacity are notable selling points that could challenge its segment rivals.

Design-wise, the Maxus G50 is integrated with distinctive styling that could compete with its competitors. It has a composed stance that’s complemented by sharp character lines and angular design finish.

The front of the G50 is fitted with automatic LED headlights that come with daytime running lights as well as a large bumper with chrome trims that give this eight-seater MPV a composed and aggressive demeanor. Moreover, the G50’s angular bumper comes with subtle fang-like chrome trims.

The Maxus G50 comes with sharp character lines

The side of the G50 is where you’ll see its sharp character lines that extend all the way to the rear. The vehicle sits on a set of 17-inch alloy wheels that further adds to the G50’s appealing design. You can also see that the G50 has a roof-mounted lip spoiler and roof rails. However, we can’t help but notice that the G50’s side shares a bit of similarity to a certain Japanese minivan.

The sharp styling continues to be seen at the G50’s rear as seen on the wraparound LED taillights and the bold bumper. It also comes with a Maxus emblem that’s placed below the chrome bar.

Of note, the Maxus G50 comes with a Roland Purple exterior paint, which could be a color scheme that others may find too loud. But the said paint will surely make the G50 stand out on the sea of Innovas, Xpanders, Ertigas, and so on.
