2018 Haval H9 Ultra AWD Luxury New Car Overview

Competing against Toyota’s ubiquitous LandCruiser Prado, Hyundai Santa Fe and Kia Sorento, the Chinese-made Haval H9 arrives refreshed for 2018 with locally-tuned steering and suspension. The MY18 revision also adds grunt increased safety technology. Retailing from $41,990 (plus on-road costs) the H9 is cheaper than its predecessor, and also better equipped. But is it enough to give the petrol-only seven-seater a leg-up on Australia’s favourite SUVs? When we first drove the Haval H9 on Aussie soil back in 2016 it was obvious the up-and-coming marque was in need of a little polish. On paper it ticked a lot of boxes – it was very well-equipped and it certainly had price on its side – but was in need of a little work where steering, suspension and electronic chassis controls were concerned; three key changes Haval has made to this MY18 update. The family-sized H9 SUV continues to offer seating for seven and dual-range four-wheel drive, and in this respect it competes directly with the likes of the Ford Everest and Toyota LandCruiser Prado. But with only a 180kW/350Nm 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-petrol engine under the bonnet (up 20kW/26Nm for 2018), the H9’s touring range and low-end grunt are still noticeably shy of gutsier turbo-diesel rivals. Of course, not every H9 owner will want to tackle the Canning Stock Route, but with a 10 per cent improvement in fuel consumption – assisted by the inclusion of idle-stop technology and a new eight-speed ZF-sourced 8HP70 automatic transmission – the H9’s theoretical cruising range of just over 700km now gives it half a chance. Add to that a now-standard All-Terrain Control System (ATCS) on both model grades and the H9’s off-road potential is greatly improved. The six-mode system – Auto, Sand, Snow, Mud, 4L and Sport – adapts to the prevailing conditions, and combines with ground clearance of 206mm and a wading depth of 700mm for class-competitive ability. Haval lists the H9’s approach, break-over and departure angles at 28, 23 and 23 degrees respectively. Braked towing capacity is rated at 2500kg. Haval has also addressed concerns surrounding the vehicle’s ride, handling and steering. In conjunction with Australian off-road specialists Ironman 4X4 it has developed heavier springs, upgraded shock absorber valving and minor changes to toe-in to make the H9 better suited to Australian conditions. The H9 now also includes blind-spot monitoring, lane-departure warning and rear cross-traffic alert as standard to bolster safety. Although it still misses out on autonomous emergency braking and active cruise control – changes expected in an update later this year – the six airbags (including full-length side curtains), Bosch-sourced stability and traction control, driver fatigue monitoring, hill-descent control, hill-hold assist, tyre-pressure monitoring, and anti-lock brakes with brake assist are notable inclusions. The H9 last received a four-star ANCAP safety rating when tested in 2015. Haval expects a five-star result when the H9 is retested later this year. For occasional four-wheel drivers wanting the city-focussed luxuries, the H9 offers plenty. It now features five-spoke 18-inch alloy wheels, Haval’s all-terrain control four-wheel drive system with electronic rear differential lock, electrochromatic rear-view mirror, and a power socket located in the centre armrest on LUX variants (from $41,990 drive-away). The new up-spec H9 Ultra (from $45,990 drive-away) gains a panoramic roof, heated steering wheel, Comfort-Tek eco-leather upholstery (heated in the first and second row), and an Infinity premium audio system. Haval offers the H9 with a five-year/100,000km warranty and included roadside assistance program. Service intervals are set at six months/10,000km intervals (whichever comes first) with a Service Price Menu akin to capped-price servicing available – though oddly detailed only at Haval dealerships and not on the company’s website.

2018 Haval H4 Medium-Size SUV Release - For Asia Market Only

Haval is introducing a new medium-size SUV called the H4, and has released some preliminary details and images to entice punters. Unfortunately for Australians, it will be offered in China only. The Haval H4 is inspired by the HR-02 concept car from 2016, showcasing a smart, chiselled design with a big chrome-rimmed front grille giving it a distinct Haval face. There’s also some neatly bolstered wheel arches and a perched up rear end providing an athletic stance. It measures 4420mm long, 1845mm wide, and 1695mm tall, riding on a 2660mm wheelbase. This makes it 130mm shorter, 5mm wider, and 20mm taller than a Mazda CX-5, for example. Power comes from one of two different turbocharged petrol engines. A 1.3-litre turbo kicks off the range, producing 102kW and 225Nm, while a 1.5-litre unit is used for the top model developing 124kW and 285Nm. Both come with a seven-speed dual-clutch auto transmission by Haval. Like the existing Haval lineup the H4 comes extensively packaged, for its class. Passengers are treated to a 12-inch floating touch-screen system, and the driver sees an LCD instrument cluster replacing traditional gauges. Some of the safety tech on board includes a 360-degree camera system, lane departure warning, lane change assist, front and rear parking sensors, and tyre pressure monitoring. It also comes with Haval Connected, which offers smartphone pairing, automated emergency contact, and remote vehicle diagnosis. At the moment Haval offers four models in Australia, ranging from the H2, H6, H8, to the top H9 flagship 7-seat SUV. Prices start from $28,490 for the base H2, and top out at $48,990 for the H8 Lux.

2018 Haval H6 SUV is The Best Chinese SUV Car Yet - Full Overview

If you’ve not heard of the Haval H6, you’re probably not alone. In fact, if you didn’t even know that Haval was a thing, you’re still probably in the majority. The Chinese maker and its medium-sized H6 SUV are here to compete with the big players. The H6 fights in the largest segment of the SUV market, against the likes of the Mazda CX-5, Toyota RAV4, Hyundai Tucson, Honda CR-V, Nissan X-Trail and all of those other very impressive, family friendly offerings. With two trim levels available, and aggressive pricing on both the entry-grade Premium and top-spec Lux tested here, the Haval H6 seemingly has something to make it stand out in the Australian market, offering customers who want a lot of car for their cash an alternative to the entry-level grades of the mainstream Korean and Japanese players. But in the midst of fierce competition, ever-sharpening prices and the continually expanding equipment lists of base model SUVs, is there really a place for this Chinese model? Until recently, the Haval H6 definitely offered truly good value for money. At launch it arrived with a base price of $31,990 drive-away for the entry-level Premium and $34,990 drive-away for this Lux version. But since then, there has been a lot of new model activity in the medium-SUV segment, and some hallmark players have added kit and dropped prices to boost sales and maintain relevance. The Premium comes with 17-inch alloy wheels, fog-lights, auto headlights and wipers, laser puddle lights, heated auto-folding side mirrors, tinted glass, roof-rails, cruise control, mood lighting, stainless-steel scuff plates, electric driver’s seat adjustment, fabric seat trim, dual-zone climate control, keyless entry and push-button start, and an 8.0-inch touchscreen multimedia unit with Bluetooth phone and audio streaming and USB input. The Lux adds a panoramic sunroof, heated front and rear seats, power-adjustable passenger seat, fake leather trim, its sound system gains a sub-woofer, and it has better headlights - xenon units with auto levelling - plus 19-inch wheels. There are seven colours to choose from, six of which are metallics that attract a $495 premium. Buyers can even choose between a range of different coloured interiors; the Premium has the choice of black or grey/black, while the Lux has black, grey/black or brown/black. And there are deals to be had. The H6 Premium can now be had at $29,990 drive-away with free sat nav (usually $990 more) and a $500 gift card. You’ll get the Lux for $33,990 drive-away. The H6 doesn’t have sat nav fitted as standard in any spec, and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto phone mirroring technology isn’t available at all. Safety kit is respectable, if not class-leading, with a reversing camera, front and rear parking sensors, six airbags, dual ISOFIX child-seat attachment points (and three top-tether hooks), and blind-spot monitoring included in both variants. It doesn’t look very much like the other models in Haval’s range, and that’s a good thing. The H2, H8 and H9 all have the rounded edges of yesteryear, where the H6 is sharper, smarter, more sophisticated. It looks more European than Chinese, to my eye. The proportions of the Haval H6 are quite fetching - the brand, cheekily, labels it the H6 Coupe in its home market. It has lines in the right places, a shapely silhouette and a pert backside, all of which combine to give it a certain presence on the road. It is more stylish than a few of its class compatriots, that’s for sure. And the Lux model rolls on 19-inch wheels, which certainly help in that regard. The interior, though, isn’t as amazing, despite looking inviting. There’s a lot of fake wood and hard plastic, and it doesn’t have the ergonomic intelligence of the better SUVs in the class. The swooping roofline makes for difficult rearward vision, too, with a letterbox rear windscreen and thick D-pillars.

The SouEsast DX3 EV is the electric variant of the DX3 SUV. It will be launched on the Chinese car market in November. Price including subsidies will start around $17,000.


The DX3 EVcomes with the usual blue detailing in the badges, grille, wheels, and bumpers. In China blue is the color of new-energy vehicles, not green, like in the rest of the world.

Power comes from an #electric motor with 120 hp, good for a 125 km/h top speed. Range hasn’t been announced yet but this sort of vehicles usually does somewhere between 180 and 250 kilometers.
Blue SouEast badge. Note badge on the lower right, with a blue V with a leaf attached to it. Hmm hmm. Blue badges for green cars, okay. But blue leaves takes that blue thing a tad too far, doesn’t it..?!
