Ensuring the safety of its passengers, the G10 features double-layer welding technology that meets European MPV active and passive safety standards. It has driver, front passenger, and side airbags, 3-point seat belts for all seats, ISOFIX child seats, and front and rear parking sensors.
The Maxus G10 is now on sale for PHP 1,680,000.
The V80 Comfort
Taller and roomier than the other units, the V80 Comfort is a 13-seater commercial vehicle ideal as a family van, school bus, or a shuttle service.
