Saic Introduced Maxus G70 And Mifa 7 Minivans

The SAIC concern held a presentation of the Maxus G70 minivan in China. This brand is the heir of the British firm LDV, which SAIC absorbed back in 2010 and reformatted for the production of SUVs, pickups, vans and minivans. The G70 model has become the youngest in the range of single-volume models, but this is not a completely original model, but a gasoline version of the previously presented electric minivan Maxus MIFA 7.

Maxus MIFA 7

Unlike its older brother G90, Maxus G70 is positioned as a city car for the family. It has a massive radiator grille, a “two-story” head optics connected by an LED strip, retractable door handles and rear lights in the form of boomerangs. The MIFA 7 electric car has a different facial expression — with a blind panel and vertical headlights.

In size, the G70 turned out to be more compact than the Kia Carnival: 4900 mm in length, 1885 mm in width and 1756 mm in height. The wheelbase is 2960 mm versus 3090 mm at the Carnival. Interestingly, the electric Maxus MIFA 7 has an increased distance between the axes (2975 mm), although its dimensions are almost the same. And only for an electric car, cameras are offered for an additional fee instead of side rear-view mirrors.

The interiors of the two minivans are decorated the same way. On the front panel there are three screens connected to each other with a diagonal of 12.3 inches each. In the middle of the central tunnel there are cup holders and wireless charging, and at the junction with the front panel there is a block of touch “hot keys” of auxiliary systems. There are practically no physical buttons in the cabin.

Minivans are offered in seven- and six-seat versions, and the second option has an unusual landing formula 2+1+3 . In this case, the front passenger’s seat is installed against the course, and it can be laid out in a chaise longue. The only seat on the second row can also be rotated 180 degrees. Passengers also have a third zone of the climate system and folding tables.

Under the hood of the Maxus G70 model, a two-liter gasoline turbo engine of the BlueCore family (234 hp, 360 Nm) is installed, aggregating with a classic nine-speed “automatic”. The electric Maxus MIFA 7 has one electric motor (245 hp, 350 Nm) and a traction battery with a capacity of 77 or 90 kWh; the power reserve is 527 and 605 km according to the CLTC cycle, respectively. In any case, the drive is only front, and the chassis is quite simple: McPherson struts in front, multi—link suspension in the rear.

Prices for the Maxus G70 have not yet been announced. It is expected that they will be named in mid-November during the show at the Guangzhou Auto Show. But the electric Maxus MIFA 7 is already on sale in China, they ask for it from 259,800 yuan (3.4 million rubles in direct translation at the current exchange rate).
