http://www.caradvice.com.au/489034/2017-haval-h6-lux-review/ The 2017 Haval H6 has its work cut out for it. It's the Chinese brand's fourth SUV model to launch here in Australia, joining the compact H2, large H8 and seven-seat H9 that arrived a year ago. Now, the mid-size H6 has the tough job of trying to break into one of our biggest selling segments and take on the big players like the Mazda CX-5, Hyundai Tucson, Toyota RAV4 and Nissan X-Trail. The Haval H6 is one of the highest selling SUVs in the world, thanks to its massive popularity in its country of origin. Given the scale of production and the gobsmacking number of people who worked on the H6 – Haval has 33,000 engineers and it was designed by the man responsible for the BMW X5, Pierre Leclerq – expectations are high. The line-up is very simple. Two specifications are available in Australia – the entry-level Premium is priced (until the end of 2016 at least) at $29,990 drive-away and our test car, the Lux, is $33,990. ------------------------------------------------------------- CarAdvice.com is where Australians turn to for the most comprehensive independent reviews of new cars.

This is the new-look 2018 Haval H6 medium SUV, set to go on sale in its native China before the mid-way point of this year, but which remains only a vague prospect for Australia for the time being. The redesigned H6 represents the first full makeover for the nameplate, which only premiered in Australia last year, but which is billed as China’s biggest-selling SUV, and the world’s fifth most popular overall. This new iteration of the H6 is 40mm shorter and wider than the current version still being sold in Australia from $29,990 drive-away, giving it a better stance. China-market versions will sport a new petrol engine, a 1.3-litre turbo, alongside the familiar 145kW 2.0-litre turbo-petrol carried over. Both will be matched to a seven-speed Getrag dual clutch transmission. The interior has also been completely reworked with a horizontal architecture incorporating technologies including digital instrumentation, a large 12-inch infotainment screen and integrated mobile interface. Haval Australia communications chief Andrew Ellis said the H6 in this shape is going to be left-hand-drive-only for the initial launch phase, meaning we will stick with the current version for the time being.

The flagship FAW T77 seven-seat SUV will go on sale in China in November, however the pre-bookings will commence from the 17th of October, as per media reports. The T77 SUV is based on the FAW T-Concept that was displayed at the Beijing Auto Show in April 2018. Interestingly, the T77 bears ‘Bestune’ wordmark instead of ‘Besturn’. As FAW has also recently changed the ‘Senya’ wordmark to ‘Senia’ for their other range of vehicles, while ‘Junpai’ has also been renamed to ‘Jumpal’. FAW is in process of heavily revising their product lineup in China making them more synergized to the prevailing consumer demands. While the change of wordmarks is because FAW is willing to launch these models in international markets and want the names to sound ‘English’ rather than Chinese. The 7-seater T77 SUV, will be the biggest and the most expensive SUV by FAW. Compared to the T-Concept, the overall design of the production version has not changed much. More importantly, the characteristic hexagonal recessed large mouth grille remain intact. More importantly the bright flame orange color of the concept has also remained intact. The side profile features black wheel arches, blacked skid plate and floating roof design. At the rear the C-shaped taillights are connected to each other while the dual-tome bumper with dynamic creases hides the tailpipe and houses the rear fog lamps and reversing lamps. The T77 will be powered by a 1.2 liter turbocharged engine producing 143hp, which is similar to what FAW has packed with the recently launched flagship Senia R9 SUV. The transmission options are 5-speed manual & 7-speed DCT, the same as in the Senia R9. In terms of dimensions, the new T77 measures 4525/1845/1615 (mm) and has a wheelbase of 2700mm, which makes the T77 some 20mm longer than the Senia R9 but slightly shorter in width and height. Both R9 and T77 have an exact wheelbase of 2700mm though. The Bestune T77 SUV will be available in different configurations, with options including panoramic sunroof, dual exterior colors (black roof) for premium trims, 17/18/19 inch wheels with low profile tires, LED DRLs, front & rear fog lamps, front & rear cameras and Bosch ABS system etc.
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? Let’s see…
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, as you see here.
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.
