Haval Jolion 2021: renewed lineup starts from $25,490 driveaway


After a limited run of just 200 units, Haval is relaunching the Jolion in Australia but now with a new entry grade available at a keen starting price.

Chinese car manufacturer Haval has relaunched the Jolion small SUV in Australia with a more complete lineup that now includes an entry grade starting from $25,490 driveaway.

After the initial run of 200 units that spanned across the Joilion Lux and top-spec Ultra, Haval’s new Premium includes an impressive list of standard safety and tech features.

Regardless of which grade you pick, the Jolion is powered by a 1.5L turbocharged four cylinder petrol engine which feeds 110kW of power and 210Nm of torque through a 7-speed dual-clutch to the front wheels.

Sitting on the ‘Lemon’ platform, the Jolion’s 2,700mm wheelbase is slightly longer than rivals such as the Mazda CX-30 and Kia Seltos, which Haval says translates to increased space inside the cabin.

The only difference between the first batch of vehicles and the current Jolion is the fitment of a new mesh-type grille but this remains the only change to the small SUV.

Opening up the range, the Jolion Premium is fitted with features such as 17-inch wheels and roof rails, while moving inside you’ll find a 10.25-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto matched with fabric seats.

The Jolion wears quite a bit of safety kit as standard including AEB with pedestrian and cyclist detection, lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert and parking-friendly features such as a reversing camera and parking sensors.

Moving to the mid-spec Jolion Lux  at $27,990 driveaway adds a 360-degree camera but also adds niceties such as LED headlights, daytime running lights and fog lights.

Inside, the six-way adjustable driver’s seat gains electric power while both front occupants benefit from heated seats and dual-zone climate control. 

Haval has also fitted a seven-inch digital instrument cluster along with better seats, a leather steering wheel and an anti-glare rearview mirror.

Saving the best for last, the Jolion Ultra at $30,990 driveaway adds larger 18-inch wheels, a panoramic sunroof along with tech features such as a heads-up display, a wireless charger and a 12.3-inch centre touchscreen.

All Haval vehicles come with a seven-year unlimited-kilometre warranty along with a capped price servicing program that should cost $1,550 over five years if you don’t go over the distance or time restrictions.
