Maxus Serves Elderly, PWDs with New Assist Package for G10 MPV (w/ Video)

Barely three months into the market, Maxus Philippines is catering to one unserved need among families, especially those living with PWDs or the elderly with their new Assist package for their G10 MPV.

Utilizing the versatility and space of its Maxus G10, the G10 Assist replaces the conventional second-row seat nearest the sliding door into one that swivels to face the sidewalk. Moreover, thanks to a built-in motor, it slides out and can be lowered down to street level making it easier for the elderly or wheelchair-bound people to take their seat or disembark.

And in a clever move that will please high-tech owners, the swivel-lifting seat is programmable either via a remote control or even through a mobile phone app. It even has a position memory function, path recover function, path obstacle sensor, door interlock, low-power detection and warning, mechanical manual function, and anti-tip protection (see it in action below).

Of note, this is different from the Maxus G10 PWD-friendly variant seen in other countries which removes the rear-most seats to fit in the wheelchair and ramp.

The G10 is Maxus’s flagship MPV and for that it comes with a Euro-4 compliant 1.9-liter turbodiesel engine making 150 horsepower and 350 Nm of torque. Mated to a 6-speed automatic, it promises to be powerful yet fuel efficient.

In terms of amenities, it has four Captain’s Seats, power adjustable seat for the driver and front passenger, a 7-inch infotainment system with USB and Bluetooth, a 220-volt outlet, and dual air conditioning. It also meets global safety standards and comes with 4 airbags, 3-point seat belts for all passengers, and proximity sensors on all four corners with a rear camera at the back.

For a more convenient ownership experience, the Maxus G10 comes with a PMS interval of the first 5,000 kilometers and every succeeding 10,000 kilometers (or once a year) after that. It has a 3-year/100,000-kilometer warranty, 24/7 emergency roadside assistance, a pick-up and delivery service for PMS, and an on-site servicing for corporate fleet accounts.

The Maxus G10 is still being offered at a special price of P 1,680,000. The Assist package adds an additional P 399,800, bringing up the price to P 2,079,800. It’s small price to pay to give back mobility to the elderly and wheelchair-bound family members.
