Haval H6 2022: $1000 price bump for Toyota RAV4, Mazda CX-5 rival

 

Haval’s midsize SUV has had its price increased for 2022, though no additional specification has been thrown into the mix


Chinese carmaker Haval’s H6 midsize SUV has been given a uniform $1000 price increase across the range this month after its prior $1000 bump in October 2021.

Sitting alongside the smaller Haval Jolion SUV and GWM Cannon ute in dealerships, the midsize Haval H6 gives Great Wall entrants in Australia’s three largest new car market segments.

In 2021 Haval sold a total of 3635 H6 examples, meaning the marque has work to do if it is to catch up to its fellow Chinese crossover, the MG HS (6828), let alone the Toyota RAV4 that leads sales in this segment in Australia (35,751) – though the H6 notably outsold the Ford Escape (1673) and Renault Koleos (1937) in 2021.

With the addition of a new Vanta grade this month, and ahead of a hybrid powertrain being added to the H6 range in June 2022, Haval’s midsize SUV has had its prices bumped but the H6’s grade structure and equipment levels remain unchanged.

For 2022, H6 prices have been put up uniformly across the range to the tune of $1000. That brings the price of entry to $32,990 driveaway nationally for the FWD H6 Premium. 

For that, you get a polyurethane steering wheel with paddle shifters, cloth upholstery, a 10.25-inch touchscreen and digital driver’s display, wired apple CarPlay and Android Auto and a six-speaker sound system.

The H6 Premium doesn’t come equipped with Haval’s full safety suite though, missing out on adaptive cruise control, rear cross-traffic alert and reverse AEB. The Premium still gets forward AEB with pedestrian, cyclist and junction function, rear parking sensors and emergency lane-keep assist.

Moving up to the mid-spec Lux ($35,990 driveaway) nets ‘Comfort-Tek’ leather upholstery, heated front seats, leather-wrapped steering wheel and additional safety equipment like adaptive cruise control, front parking sensors and a 360-degree camera.

The range-topping Ultra builds on the safety list adding reverse AEB and rear cross-traffic alert while adding a larger 12.3-inch central touchscreen, eight-speaker sound system, heated mirrors and steering wheel, and ambient lighting for $38,990 driveaway.

Haval is offering a limited run of 1000 Ultra-based H6 Vanta variants, which share all the same technology but score black 19-inch alloys and exterior black-out package for $1000 more.

Additionally, the Ultra and Vanta are available with AWD systems for $2000 extra with the same 150kW/320Nm 2.0-litre turbo petrol four-cylinder engine and seven-speed dual clutch automatic transmission.

Like its smaller Jolion cousin, the H6 will soon be available with a hybrid powertrain, though the midsizer’s petrol-electric powertrain is confirmed for Australia. The H6 hybrid will be distinguished by a different grille – reminiscent of the new Peugeot 3008 – 179kW/530Nm punch and consumption figure of 5.2L/100km.
