Chinese brands such as Haval are quickly gaining momentum in Australia with a strong value-driven lineup during a challenging economic period.
Haval has revealed its all-new H6 midsize SUV will be packed with a surprising amount of standard equipment and a starting price of $30,990 driveaway.
The Chinese-built SUV will go on sale in Australia in early April with a choice of three grades known as the base H6 Premium, Lux and top-trim Ultra.
All variants use a 2.0-litre turbo petrol engine making 150kW of power and 320Nm of torque that is paired to a 7-speed Dual Clutch Transmission with either front or all-wheel-drive in the top trim.
The new H6 sits on a new platform that is both bigger and lighter than the last and features 18-inch alloys as standard along with more modern LED headlights and taillights.
Climb inside and you’ll find a 10.25-inch centre touchscreen with in-built Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and an additional 10.25-inch display acting as the digital instrument cluster.
The rest of the standard features focus heavily on safety with lane keep assist, blind-spot monitoring, driver fatigue monitoring, AEB with pedestrian and cyclist detection and a reversing camera of peace of mind when pulling out of the driveway.
Haval has not yet released pricing for the remaining grades but they do offer a notable step up in equipment, with a focus on creating a more luxury experience.
The mid-tier H6 Lux adds features such as synthetic leather seats with heating in the front and six-way adjustability for the driver, a 360-degree camera, dual-zone climate control, roof rails, front LED fog lights and adaptive cruise control to make life a bit easier in traffic.
Stepping up to the top-spec Ultra gives buyers the ability to all-wheel-drive or stick with front-wheel-drive.
Buyers will also gain niceties such as larger 19-inch wheels, a panoramic roof, wireless charger, a bigger 12.3-inch display and a heads up display along with handy features such as a power tailgate and rear cross-traffic alert.
More details on pricing will be released as the H6 starts to hit Australian showrooms in April.
