Chinese car manufacturer Haval has launched the latest in an onslaught of new models, diving into the small SUV market with a sharp price and feature list.
Haval is launching a slew of models this week with the arrival of the H6 midsize SUV and now the Jolion small SUV to form a growing lineup of value-driven options.
With the same 2,700mm wheelbase as a CX-5 midsize SUV the Jolion places a huge emphasis on space yet carries the $27,990 entry-driveaway price and other outward dimensions of a far smaller vehicle.
Haval has shipped just 300 units of the Jolion to Australia at launch with two grades known as the Jolion Lux LE (Launch Edition) and top-spec Ultra LE.
As standard, the Jolion arrives with a decent list of features inside including a 10.25-inch touchscreen with wired Apple CarPlay that is matched to a seven-inch digital driver’s display.
Luxury touches include heating for the front seats with six-way electric adjustability, leather steering wheel, dual-zone climate control and 17-inch alloy wheels.
Somewhat of a rarily at this price point in the addition of a 360-degree camera that is fitted as standard alongside other safety equipment such as adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert.
Buyers opting for the Jolion Ultra LE will have to fork out a bit more at $30,990 driveaway and receive a few more luxury touches such as larger 18-inch wheels and a panoramic roof.
Inside, passengers will also appreciate the wireless phone charger, larger 12.3-inch touchscreen and a heads-up display for the driver.
All Haval models arrive with a seven-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty along with five years of roadside assistance.
The Haval Jolion is currently being trucked out to dealerships all around the country though with 300 units available, stock is limited.
All figures listed are the estimated driveaway price.
