Great Wall’s SUV company Haval has unveiled the 2019 Haval H4 in China before its official launch at Auto China 2018 later this month.
Billed as a medium SUV, the Haval H4 is based on the HR-02 concept that Haval displayed two years ago at the same motor show.
Under the bonnet, Haval says the H4 will get two turbocharged petrol engines, a 1.3-litre four-cylinder, and a 1.5 litre four-cylinder.
Both engines will be fitted with a new seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, which is Haval’s own design.
Haval has revealed the engines’ outputs, too – the 1.3-litre makes 102kW (136hp) and 225Nm (165 lb ft) of torque, while the 1.5-litre makes 124kW (166hp) and 285Nm (210 lb ft).
At 4420mm long by 1845mm wide and 1695mm high, it’s a similar size to the BMW X1, and gets a 2660mm wheelbase.
Open the doors and you’re greeted with a reasonably styling interior, with LCD instruments and a 12-inch infotainment screen which sits proud of the centre stack. Haval also describes keyboard-style switchgear, but judging by the pictures, that’s the area that seems to let it down the most.
There’s a 360-degree camera system as standard, including front and rear parking sensors, lane departure warning, lane change assist, and tyre pressure monitoring.
Haval’s “Connected telematics” allows for smartphone mirroring, emergency alerts if there’s an issue, monitoring your vehicle remotely and even vehicle diagnosis.
If that all sounds like what you’re after, then you’d best head to China, because at this stage, it’s the only market getting the H4.
