Weststar Maxus launches the G10 people mover
Remember the days of getting into a tight squeeze in a car whenever the family took an out-of-town trip or went shopping?
Those jam-packed days will be a faded memory when Weststar Maxus launches the British heritage G10, a 10-seater people mover. The stylish vehicle, designed for ample cabin space and flexible seating, makes it the ideal family transport – and it comes with an affordable RM139,888 on-the-road price tag.
The G10, billed as a versatile family vehicle, is powered by a 2.0 litre TGI engine with 225 horsepower and 345m torque for maximum output. It is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission with manual code to ensure a high-powered and responsive driving experience.
“We’re positioning the G10 as the ultimate people mover – and families are the target audience for this vehicle,” says Tan Sri Syed Azman, Weststar Group Managing Director. “The value-for-money vehicle is well suited for mid to big-sized families who prioritise comfort, practicality, and fuel economy.”
The Torino designed vehicle comes equipped with full leather seats and safety features that fulfil the European MPV passive safety standards. The safety kit includes dual airbags and ABS/EBD.
The G10 is available in three striking colours: Champagne Gold, Blanc White, and Obsidian Black. The vehicle has a three-year warranty with an additional bonus of one year free service.
“Approximately 120 G10 units have been pre-ordered to date, a positive sign that the vehicle is already emerging as Malaysia’s favourite people mover,” says Tan Sri Syed. “Our sales target for this year is 500 units, and we’re confident that the G10 will be the premium family choice in this sector.”
According to Tan Sri Syed, plans are afoot to commence CKD operations by September this year and export G10 vehicles to ASEAN countries by 2017.
Weststar Maxus, part of the Weststar Group, secured the Maxus sole distribution rights for the Asia-Pacific region from SAIC. The company currently has 15 sales distributors and a network of 32 service centres nationwide. Weststar Maxus was awarded “the Most Outstanding Distributorship” from SAIC in conjunction with the Shanghai International Automobile Industry Exhibition in 2013.
