Road rave: Toyota Veloz vs. Maxus G50

If you've been planning to bring your family on a weekend road trip but don't have the right vehicle to get you there, you should consider getting a sport utility vehicle (SUV) or a multi-purpose vehicle (MPV). These types of vehicles are perfect for family or company outings — largely due to the useful space that they provide.
