Haval H8 review: 60,000km on the clock

My computer might have been designed by Apple in California, but it was made in China. Same story for my phone. We're perfectly comfortable using electronics or wearing clothes made by Chinese hands, so why aren't we keen to drive their cars? Since it launched locally in 2015, Haval has faced an uphill battle making the public take notice...

2018 Haval H9 review

China's biggest SUV brand, Haval, shows how fast it can learn to impress mature markets. The commendable Haval H9 is a big, capable and well-specified 4x4 that stands every chance of changing a few minds, even if it remains a hard sell against more familiar offerings...

2017 Haval H9 Premium tuned by Ironman 4x4 review: Quick drive

The Haval H9 is China's answer to an array of large off-roaders like the Toyota Prado, but at a fraction of the price. The company revealed in Darwin last week, it has been working with Aussie company Ironman 4x4 on a local tuning program – similar to how Hyundai and Kia tune their models specifically for our market...

2017 Haval H2 Premium 4x2 review

You probably know very little about the Haval H2, but this Vitara, Qashqai and CX-3 rival in the small crossover segment shows promise, especially given the much-needed recent price cuts.

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...

Haval H4: Another good-looking Haval we won't get

A new Haval H4 model has joined the line-up of what is claimed to be China's largest SUV brand. Officially, it was revealed late last year, but it has now gone on sale in China – and the company's local arm has confirmed we won't see it in Australia. At least, not anytime soon. Like the new H2s and new H6 models revealed previously, the H4 is currently confirmed for the domestic market only...

Haval Australia planning new SUV range by 2021, EVs by 2022

China’s biggest domestic SUV maker, Haval, is having a much tougher time selling cars to Australians than it expected, but the still-ambitious company suggests its next wave of products will have a better go at it. The company is developing a new modular architecture for domestic left-hand drive (LHD) purposes – as well as right-hand drive (RHD) for Australia, India and South Africa – to underpin its next generation model line-up...

2018 Haval H9 pricing and specs

The upgraded Haval H9 seven-seat 4x4 has arrived with an array of new features, a better powertrain and more realistic pricing. The Chinese large-SUV is pitched as a family-friendly seven-seater to rival the Kia Sorento and Hyundai Santa Fe, though its body-on-frame construction grants it off-road ability akin to a Ford Everest...

Haval Owner Reviews

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...
