The Maxus is offered in three gross vehicle weights – 2.8 tonnes, 3.2 tonnes and 3.5 tonnes. There are also two wheelbases and three roof heights, giving a good selection of models to choose from.
Twin unglazed rear doors mean that prying eyes won’t be able to see into the cargo area.
The Maxus range was boosted in 2007 with the launch of chassis-cab and tipper versions, featuring smooth flat steel decks with no external fittings and welds.
There's also a Crew Van which can carry nine people.
Load volumes range from seven cubic metres to 11.4 cubic metres.
Access to the load area is excellent, with a good wide side sliding door coming as standard. In fact it has a bigger side and rear door width than a 3.5T Ford Transit, Vauxhall Movano, Renault Master or Iveco Daily.
There are no load-lashing eyes in the rear though, which can cause a problem.
Payloads range from 917kg to 1,616kg - well over half a tonne.
The 2007 chassic cab models will manage payloads up to 1,330kg.
