Haval H2 now on sale in Australia from $26,490

October 30, 2015

A new SUV carmaker from China has arrived in Australia, called Haval. And the first vehicle to be launched is the Haval H2. To celebrate the occasion the brand is announcing a free two-tone paint/interior package.

Haval H2-Salted Caramel

The Haval H2 is described as a small premium SUV. It features a distinctive U-shape front grille in Haval tradition, as well as sophisticated LED headlights with 15 LED crystals, and neat and tidy body proportions.

In the engine compartment is a 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol four-cylinder producing 110kW of power and 210Nm of torque. It’s matched to either a six-speed manual or six-speed auto. Two-wheel drive is standard but 4×4 is expected to be an option.

Standard features include cruise control, Bluetooth connectivity with audio streaming, a rear-view camera, and an 8.0-inch touch-screen interface. Haval has just announced the model comes with an otherwise-optional two-tone package as standard until December 31.

Buyers can select between various colour schemes, including Dragon (red body with black roof), Monochrome (black body with white roof), Thredbo (black body with ivory roof), Salted Caramel (bronze body with white roof), and Latte (bronze body with ivory roof).

These colours can then be matched with either black seats with red inserts, grey inserts, or dark tan inserts for that chic European look. These packages are normally priced at $750.

Prices for the Haval H2 start at $26,490 for the Premium 4×2 manual.
