The car names you've probably been mispronouncing this whole time

Fancy yourself a car enthusiast? While being an enthusiastic car owner and a good driver are both part of your overall street cred, a lot of it comes down to being able to talk the torque. And where many of us can come undone when showing off our automotive prowess is butchering the pronunciation of brand or model names as badly as Kim from Kath & Kim used to pronounce 'chardonnay' (she said 'kar-don-aye', for the record)...

2019 Haval F7 review: Quick drive

Haval hasn't left a huge dent in the Australian market yet. Products like the F7 could change that.

2018 Haval H9 Ultra review

The hulking Haval H9 offers remarkable value for money for those willing to take a punt on a little-known brand. It's a massive, luxurious 4x4 with real presence, though it's still going to face an uphill battle to win over a sceptical public – and rightly so.

2018 Wey VV5 and VV7 quick drives

Haval's premium division, Wey, has produced a pair of startlingly attractive crossovers called the VV5 and VV7 for China, with an eye to export. It's a notable first attempt, demonstrating how much the world's biggest car market has matured.

2017 Haval H6 Lux Review

Read the full review here. 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...

2016 Haval H8 SUV Review

We have seen several Chinese brands come and go in Australia without making much of an impact. But the latest contender, Haval, might not be quite like the others. The company has just launched in Australia with a three-SUV range priced and specced more closely in line with competition from Japan and Korea, and inspired in part by rivals out of Europe...

How big is the boot? Every SUV in Australia, ranked smallest to biggest

If you're shopping for an SUV, it's likely you want to know a few important things. A good number of seats, an ample amount of power, an affordable price point, reliability, safety and – possibly most importantly – how much of your life you can cram into the boot...

Sales of Chinese cars hit top gear: MG, LDV, Haval post record month

Emerging Chinese brands MG, LDV and Haval posted significant sales gains in June 2020, as the overall market fell by 6.4 per cent. MG cars and SUVs reported 1348 vehicles as sold (an increase of 33 per cent compared to the same month last year), while LDV delivered 1052 utes, vans and SUVs (an increase of 31 per cent)...

Chinese cars buck the sales trend, up 36 per cent

Chinese car makers continue to defy the downward trend in Australia’s new-car market, with latest figures from the Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries showing a 36 per cent increase in the first five months of this year versus the same period in 2019. That’s bucking the current trend where new car sales have taken a hammering thanks to the coronavirus pandemic and the resulting recession...

2019 Haval H2 Lux 2WD review

With everyone now driving SUV’s, the little hatchback was no longer any good around town. It was difficult when trying to see around the SUVs to back out of a car park or down the street to see if the intersection is clear. After looking around the market with the price range of around $25,000, I searched for what bang could I get for my buck...

2016 Haval H6 Premium review

A Note from the Editor: A stock image has been supplied with this review. Haval has a gem on its hands with the H6 – the price, comfort, style, price, technology and the price are all selling points to this vehicle. The ton of features in the H6 compared with others in this medium SUV class, all at around $10–15K less than the competition, are eye-opening to say the least...

2017 Haval H6 Lux review

We purchased the H6 after test-driving the Haval range. We were impressed by the level of features, build quality and value for money. Buying a Chinese-made vehicle was a change after owning a Jeep, Land Rover, Ford, Holden and Toyota. The five-year warranty helped us feel a little more secure. We will have to wait and see how the resale value works out...

2018 Haval H6 Lux review

We picked up the Haval H6 as a replacement for my Holden Cruze SRi-V. We chose the Haval H6 as we wanted a medium-sized SUV and to keep our spending down. The Haval H6 has a heap of features for its price range, and the options you get with the Lux model you won’t find anywhere else. But what you also won’t find anywhere is poor customer follow-up and a lack of respect from the team at Haval...
