Instead of the usual crossover- or SUV-stuffed roster we see from other marques that hail from the People’s Republic, the Maxus brand was introduced back in 2019 with two large people-haulers: the V80 and the G10. I saw neither as a legitimate sales driver, so admittedly, I was a bit skeptical about Maxus’ arrival at first.
But Maxus can only downsize from where it started, so it was bound to make its way to the real mass-market segments. Lo and behold, that’s what actually happened. The carmaker went small in 2020 with the T60 pickup and the G50 MPV, and now it’s going even smaller to kick off 2021 with its latest offering: the D60.
