The third-generation of the Haval H6 is now for sale in South Africa.
The second generation was never sold locally, meaning the newest model comes with an all-new design featuring LED lights, a mesh grille, and 19-inch alloy wheels.
It also boasts new technologies and abilities, along with a “new generation of safety”, said Haval.
The Haval H6 offers plenty of features as standard, starting with full-leather upholsteries and electrically-adjustable front seats.
Keyless entry and start adds to the comfort, while pricier models are fitted with a sunroof, and heated and ventilated seats.
A 12.3-inch infotainment display then takes care of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, while traffic sign recognition, adaptive cruise control, and traffic jam assist is supported through the 10.25-inch instrument cluster.
“On the top model, an intelligent, full-colour heads-up display means you never take your eyes off the road while the 15W wireless phone charging and intelligent tailgate bring everyday convenience,” added Haval.
New generation safety
According to Haval, 71.61% of the new H6 is constructed using high-strength steel, and an intricate pedestrian protection system with a collapsible steering column combines to give the SUV range its best-ever impact protection.
In addition, it gets a plethora of driver assist systems:
- Six airbags
- 360-degree camera
- Lane keeping assist
- Lane departure warning
- All-round blind spot monitoring
- Anti-theft alarm and immobiliser
There are no official safety test ratings for the new Haval H6.
The new generation H6 is powered by a single engine offering, a 2.0-litre, turbo-diesel motor.
This unit is paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, and generates 150kW and 320Nm of torque.
A new suspension setup further improves handling and control, said the company, and the vehicle’s centre of mass was lowered by 20mm when compared to the previous generation – aiding in the reduction of body roll.
