Lapu-Lapu City businessman’s Maxus G50; Mazda service campaign;


    Lapu-Lapu City businessman raves about his Maxus G50:
    ‘Upscale features at an economy price’

    It was a seemingly predictable day for Frank Williams, a businessman based in Lapu-Lapu City in Cebu, until he watched a YouTube video review of a family MPV. Little did he realize that towards the end of that video, a choice he would make would significantly improve the quality of their lives.

    The businessman was in the market for a family MPV, and what he discovered upon learning of the G50 was much more than he expected in an MPV. “I was captured by the upscale styling, 8-passenger seating, comfortable ride and upscale amenities (did I say upscale twice?) – features that are usually reserved for a much higher-priced vehicle,” he gushed.

    The icing on the cake was the no-fuss service Williams received from Cebu’s Iconic Dealership. “I requested a test drive with the dealership online, and three hours later, their sales agent Joy Agullo graciously offered to drive the demo unit of the Maxus G50 right at my front door!”

    Before the morning was over, Williams was able to convince his wife that the Maxus G50 was the one for them. “I had asked to wrap the demo unit with a bow so my wife will be surprised. I brought her out blindfolded with great fanfare and everyone had a good time gawking at the spectacle.”

    Indeed, the Maxus G50 delighted everyone in Williams’ household even before their trips with the vehicle began.

    The next day, Williams joyfully concluded the sale. Shortly after, his brand new Roland Purple Maxus G50 was already in his driveway.

    Williams considers the Maxus G50 as one of the best purchasing decisions he has ever made. “The Maxus G50 looks and feels like an upscale luxury vehicle but thankfully comes at an economy price. What really caught my attention were the big 12” monitor on the dash, 17-inch wheels, power seats, 8-passenger seating, panoramic sunroof, power tailgate, leather seats and the wireless charger.”

    Like Williams, you too, can discover how the Maxus G50 can brighten the start of your day and fulfill your special requirements in an MPV, may it be for personal, business, or family in nature. The G50 epitomizes the “do-it-all” attitude of multi-purpose vehicles, and is infused with Maxus’ 124 years of British-bred heritage and global expertise in vehicles, making the G50 the MPV that can do “Max More” at a value-for-money proposition.

    Maxus Philippines offers introductory prices of its G50 variants, ranging from P1.088M for the Turbo DCT Pro, to P1.168M for the Turbo DCT Elite, and P1.288M for the Turbo DCT Premium.
