Haval Motors SA, a subsidiary of GWM has just introduced its second SUV to the South African market. The H6 C (with the ‘C’ standing for Coupe) follows on the heels of the well received Haval H2.
When we did a road test on the Haval H2 recently we thought that ‘it just might be the most impressive Chinese vehicle to ever hit our shores’.
The new H6 C is driven by a four-cylinder, turbo petrol, 2.0-litre mill that produces 140kW and 310Nm of torque between 2 000 and 3 600rpm . The front-wheel drive SUV comes with six-speed automatic (DCT) or six-speed manual transmission, while 4WD versions are available on special order.
Dual-zone climate control, electric foldable side mirrors with demister, keyless entry, satellite controls on the steering wheel, and automatic headlights and wipers are standard features.. All but entry-level City models get an eight-way, electrically adjustable driver’s seat (and all seats are of synthetic leather, except the City’s), while top-range Luxury derivatives have a panoramic sunroof and xenon headlights as standard.
Like the smaller H2, the H6 C boasts a five-star C NCAP rating and comes standard with Electronic Stability Program (ESP), hill ascent and descent control and a reverse camera.
