Maxus G10 SE launched in Malaysia, from RM153k

Weststar Malaysia has officially launched the new Maxus G10 SE, which is a new variant of the large MPV that made its debut last year.

What sets the G10 SE apart from the standard model are enhancements to the MPV’s aesthetics and a revised equipment list. The former sees the adoption of a full body kit inclusive of front and rear bumpers, side skirts and a roof spoiler. Also new here are the automatic sliding doors, which come with an anti-squeeze feature for added safety. Rounding off the list of exterior changes is a set of 18-inch aluminium alloy wheels (shod with 225/55 tyres).

Everything else about the exterior remains unchanged from the standard G10, with HID xenon headlights (with LED DRLs), LED taillights, front electric sunroof and chrome door handles coming as standard. Inside, the most noticeable change is the massive 15-inch head unit, which is actually split into a more moderately-sized touchscreen and smaller screen for the digital clock. Elsewhere, there’s dark leather trim for the dashboard, matched with marble-like trim.

As a people mover, the G10 SE’s 10 seats are arranged in a 2-3-2-3 layout, which is the same as before, except the seats are upholstered in black/brown leather and in a slightly different design. The third-row bench can be folded (60:40 split) to provide more cargo space if needed, while the second-row bench (also 60:40 split) and third row individual seats can be slid forwards and back.

The rest of the equipment list includes keyless entry and start, a multifunction steering wheel, 360-degree camera (new), cruise control, multi-info display in the instrument cluster, rear ceiling-mounted air-con vents and 220-volt power supply.

Safety wise, the G10 SE is equipped with two airbags, ABS (with EBD and brake assist), electronic stability program (ESP), traction control and tyre pressure monitoring system. You’ll also find Isofix child seat anchors on the second- and third-row seats.

Under the hood, the 2.0 litre turbocharged GDI engine is retained, offering 225 hp at 5,500 rpm and 345 Nm at 4,000 rpm. The four-cylinder mill is paired to a six-speed ZF automatic transmission, sending drive to the rear wheels.

So, how much for all this opulence? Well, the G10 SE is priced at RM153,412 on-the-road without insurance, which is inclusive of a three-year warranty. Buyers will get to choose from three exterior body colours – Obsidian Black, Blanc White and Aurora Silver.

    This is considered junk. Their sales were so low every MAA monthly announcement. RM153k for a toilet.

    Wait till real China cars come into Malaysia via Geely and charge RM70k for the same thing. Hail Geely! Thank you China!

      2 airbags? What is our kerajaan doing? Don’t they care for the rakyat to put laws that say what minimum airbags a car company should give?

  • 15xk? Mainland China brand? Who want to buy?
    Ur target monthly sales?or perhaps yearly sales?
    R these morons or whoever think they can turn upside down Malaysian mindset, should read Paultan daily or do some serious research or else they should think to close shop right after the launching event.sigh
    Consider to deal with gov and ask them to let u sell it under 100k, which is still relevant for Chinese brand. Jangan berangan disiang hari

    • It’s still so much cheaper than the “X” spec alphard/vellfire, which has basically nothing except for the brand.

  • You mentioned “The four-cylinder mill is paired to a six-speed ZF automatic transmission, sending drive to the front wheels.” but one of your undercarriage picture can clearly see a rear differential block. Should it be rear wheel drive?

    • You are sharp man. I went back and actually saw it.

      Should be rear wheel drive or very unlikely, AWD.

  • Overall specs with that price tag is nothing wrong. The only thing to worry is the durability and after sales service.
