About LDV Maxus

Details

The 2004-2009 LDV Maxus received positive press upon release, being adopted for fleet usage by companies such as Royal Mail and the National Grid and numerous police forces across Britain. Just one year after launch, the LDV Maxus received accolades such as ‘Van of the Year 2005’ from the Professional Van and Light Truck Magazine alongside other awards, including ‘Van of the Year’, ‘Minibus of the Year’ and ‘Combi of the Year’ in the years since. The LDV Group was bought in 2010 by Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation, which has since released its own vans under the Maxus label, but these are only available for purchase in the Asia-Pacific region and are not considered here.

The LDV Maxus offers the choice of wheel bases of 3100mm or 3850mm, three roof heights and gross vehicle weights of 2.8t, 3.2t or 3.5t. Power is delivered by a 2.5 litre TDCI Common Rail diesel engine produced by Italian firm VM, driving the front wheels with 95, 120 or 135 horsepower. Transmission is manual, with an option for five- or six-speed gearboxes. Multiple configurations are available, from the minibus version providing 10, 12, 15 or 17 seat spaces to the multi-purpose configuration with a mix of seating and load space for transport of goods. A versatile chassis cab version was also produced in a number of variants, including drop-side, tipper trucks, Luton-body vans and box vans.

The LDV Maxus was designed as the successor to the then ageing Convoy and Pilot vans made by the same company. The LDV Maxus features impressive load volumes ranging from 7m3 to 11.4m3. Payloads vary from 917kg to 1,616kg, with plenty of choice in between. Service intervals are every 20,000 miles. Alongside all of these options are three choices of power output - 95hp and 120hp, with a 135hp version released in 2007 - meaning that no matter the kind of load you intend to carry, you’ll be able to find a Maxus up to the task.

The Maxus is fitted with a sliding door on the side and double doors at the back which open fully to 180 degrees, and the door aperture reaches right to the top of the body even in the Maxus model with the highest roof. If load-carrying is your main consideration, then it is advisable to look for a Maxus with the optional ply-lining and flat plastic floor installed and with countersunk load lashing rings, making loading and unloading much easier.

At the time of release, one criticism levelled at the LDV Maxus was the disparity between the standard equipment and the additional features that came with an extra price tag. Power steering, electric windows and mirrors, an airbag on the driver’s side, remote electronic locking, a CD player, engine immobiliser, driver’s seat adjustment and tachometer were all fitted as standard.

The optional extras included rear slamlocks, plywood flooring, full steel bulkhead, passenger airbag, vehicle alarm and ABS brakes. Features such as ESP traction control are not available even as add-ons. It is worth bearing this in mind when looking for a used Maxus to ensure that you find a van with all the features you require.
