Chinese carmaker, Haval, has arrived in South Africa and has launched the new H2 crossover to the local market. Herewith specification and pricing details for the new Haval H2.
Haval Motors has made landfall in South Africa this week by launching its new H2 crossover that will rival the likes of the popular Renault Captur, Ford Ecosport and the Cars.co.za Consumer Awards - powered by WesBank Compact Family Car champion, the Suzuki Vitara.
As a sub-brand of GWM, Haval will cater for the passenger market and is the best-selling SUV brand in China, having sold over 1-million units in 2016. Haval will look to penetrate the local market with affordability being a key driver, starting with the H2 crossover and its smaller H1 sibling.
The Haval H2 comes to market with a 1.5-litre turbopetrol engine with 105 kW and 202 Nm of torque on offer. Buyers can choose between a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission.
In terms of features, niceties such as automatic headlights and windscreen wipers, man-made leather upholstery, high resolution touchscreen infotainment system, 6-way adjustable driver’s seat are offered on high-spec derivatives. All H2 models are fitted with front, side and curtain airbags as standard and the vehicle carries a 5-star CNCAP crash safety rating. A total of 3 trim levels are on offer including City, Premium and Luxury.
