New Haval Jolion Pro for South Africa – Pricing revealed

The South African pricing for the new Haval Jolion Pro has been uncovered ahead of its official launch in Gauteng tomorrow.

According to Duoporta Vehicle Information Specialists, the Pro has a local starting price of R391,150, making it R42,800 more expensive than the regular Jolion.

Specifications

The new Pro series is positioned above the standard Jolion range and is intended to give customers a sportier version of the popular crossover.

It uses the same trim levels, minus the entry-level City derivative, and has the same engine selection, including the range-topping hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) powertrain.

Starting things off is a 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol plant, which produces a total of 105kW and 210Nm.

This connects to the front wheels via a seven-speed, dual-clutch automatic gearbox, resulting in an average fuel consumption of 8.1l/100km.

The Pro also offers the more powerful S specification, though this time around the S is sold in “Ultra Luxury” guise rather than “Super Luxury.”

The S features an uprated version of the 1.5-litre powerplant giving it a new cap of 130kW and 270Nm, but despite the higher output, it nets a lower fuel consumption rating of 7.5l/100km.

Finally, there’s the flagship HEV, which combines the 1.5-litre block with a small electric motor, resulting in a combined potential of 140kW and 375Nm.

It is the only model to use a different transmission, as it replaces the dual-clutch box with a CVT for greater fuel savings.

The result is that the HEV is simultaneously the most powerful Jolion while having the best fuel economy at 5.1l/100km.

Additionally, each of the Pro units has independent multi-link suspension at the rear to lend them a sportier handling profile than the standard Jolions.

It’s important to note that, once the Pro goes on sale in South Africa, the base Jolion will lose its six-speed manual gearbox option as well as the HEV drivetrain, meaning you will need to buy the Pro if these things are important to you.

On the design front, the upmarket Jolion has a vertically-slatted grille, separate LED headlights and daytime running lights, a rear spoiler, a singular LED lightbar stretching across the boot door, and more aggressive front and rear bumpers.

The Pro is not yet listed on Haval South Africa’s website as of the time of writing, but the expectation is that the cabin and spec sheet will be near identical to the existing crossovers.

Since the new units come at a considerable premium, it’s likely that buyers can expect highlights such as 18-inch alloy rims, a panoramic sunroof, an artificial leather steering wheel with paddle shifters, a 7.0-inch digital driver display, a wireless charger, parking sensors, a 360-degree camera, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, keyless entry and start, six speakers, and dual-zone climate control.

Pricing

The South African pricing for the new Haval Jolion Pro is as follows:

  • Haval Jolion Pro 1.5T Premium –  R391,150
  • Haval Jolion Pro 1.5T Super Luxury – R425,950
  • Haval Jolion Pro 1.5T Ultra Luxury – R462,950
  • Haval Jolion Pro 1.5T S Ultra Luxury – R495,950
  • Haval Jolion Pro 1.5 HEV Ultra Luxury – R516,950

This includes a 5-year/100,000km warranty and a 5-year/60,000km service plan; while the HEV is afforded an extended 7-year/200,000km vehicle warranty, an 8-year/150,000km battery warranty, and a 5-year/75,000km service plan.
