LDV G10 2017
Carsguide Contributing Journalist Mark Oastler had this to say at the time: Given the G10 is claimed to be the first LDV van fully designed, developed and manufactured in China, they’ve done a commendable job because its bargain basement price does not equate to the shortfall you might expect in build quality, performance, comfort and safety. However, it is a vehicle of stark contrasts, with several important boxes that still need to be ticked and long-term durability that is yet to be proven. Plus the glaring omission of a GCM rating makes it impossible to know what you can legally tow, which does nothing to improve negative perceptions of Chinese-made vehicles.You can read the full review here.
The 2017 LDV G10 carries a braked towing capacity of up to 1500 Kg, but check to ensure this applies to the configuration you're considering.
The LDV G10 is also known as the Maxus G10 in markets outside Australia.

LDV G10 2017 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the LDV G10 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
LDV G10 2016: Does it have a timing chain or belt?
There were three engines offered in the 2016 LDV G10, Brett; a turbo-petrol, a non-turbo petrol and a turbo-diesel. Here’s the answer to all three possibilities: Both the two-litre turbocharged petrol and the turbo-diesel use a timing chain. The 2.4-litre non-turbo petrol engine uses a timing belt.
The timing belt will need replacing at regular intervals while the timing chains should be good for the life of the vehicles they are fitted to.
LDV G10 2016: Blowing white smoke
Service intervals are specified as either/or, it’s whichever comes first. Your service is due in August, or at 30,000 km if that comes first. White smoke would tend to suggest a problem with the turbocharger. Turbochargers have to have clean oil to survive; dirty oil will kill them eventually. You need to negotiate with LDV, if you haven’t missed the service by a long way you might be able to get some help on the cost of repairs; otherwise you’re unlikely to get much assistance.
How does the LDV G10 compare to the Hyundai iMax and Kia Carnival?
There are so few LDVs out there it’s hard to say how reliable they are, but we know the iMax and Carnival are good. I would go for the Carnival.
