Haval Jolion 2023: Toyota Corolla Cross rival gains more affordable Lux Hybrid grade 


The Jolion Lux Hybrid comes in as a cheaper alternative to the Ultra Hybrid that’s been on sale since mid-2022

Haval has added another electrified Jolion to its local line-up in the form of the new Jolion Lux Hybrid, which starts at $36,990 before on-road costs. 

Based on the existing Lux grade offered on the Jolion in Australia, the Lux Hybrid is offered as a cheaper alternative to the Ultra Hybrid that has been on sale since August 2022.

As a small hybrid-powered SUV, this Jolion Lux Hybrid would likely face competition from the Toyota Corolla Cross Hybrid, the Honda HR-V e:HEV, and the Kia Niro Hybrid

How fuel efficient is the Haval Jolion Lux Hybrid? 

As another Jolion hybrid, it shouldn’t be any surprise to see that the Lux Hybrid shares a powertrain with the Ultra Hybrid, which Haval claims to use just 5L/100km in combined conditions

When Chasing Cars tested the Jolion Ultra Hybrid in our official review, we saw the same result of 5L/100km.

This is comprised of a naturally-aspirated 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine that’s paired with an electric motor on the front axle. 

This petrol engine produces 70kW/125Nm, whilst the electric motor makes 110kW/250Nm. Total outputs sit at 139kW and 375Nm of torque. 

The same goes for the transmission, which is a CVT that Haval calls a “dedicated hybrid transmission”, and it sends power exclusively to the front wheels. 

What standard equipment does it get? 

Considering that it’s just a hybrid version of the 1.5-litre petrol Jolion Lux, standard equipment carries over from this grade.

On the outside, this includes 17-inch alloy wheels, roof rails, and automatic windscreen wipers. 

Moving inside, a 10.25-inch infotainment display with wired Apple Carplay and Android Auto is included. This is flanked by a 7-inch digital cluster, and it also gets a six-speaker sound system. 

On the safety front, Haval’s full suite is standard across the Jolion range, meaning that this Lux Hybrid gets adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist, and a 360 degree camera.
