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.

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...

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 design boss: Doubt Chinese cars at your peril

For a long time, China has been an easy target for automotive enthusiasts. Silly names, copycat designs and laughable crash test results showed how far the Middle Kingdom's automotive industry languished behind its Asian neighbours, not to mention Europe. According to Haval's design director, the time for jokes is over...

2019 Haval H9 pricing and specs: AEB standard range-wide

Haval Australia has announced a raft of upgrades to its H9 off-roader, including the standard inclusion of autonomous emergency braking with forward collision warning across the line-up. For 2019, the Chinese SUV specialist has brought a suite of active safety tech to its flagship model in Australia, including the aforementioned AEB and FCW systems, along with adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, and lane departure warning fitted as standard from the base model...

Great Wall preparing 500Nm diesel engine for new ute

Great Wall hasn't given its new ute a name yet, but it's already preparing a pair of pumped-up engines for power-hungry buyers. The new Pickup, as it’s currently known by Great Wall, will be available with petrol and diesel power, the former making 120kW and 360Nm, the latter offering 145kW and between 380Nm and 400Nm of torque. Both displace 2...

Great Wall: High-grade ute variant to offer just 500kg payload

High-spec versions of Great Wall’s new ute will land in Australia with a payload rating almost 500kg less than the established players offer, thanks to its new five-link rear suspension. Launched in Shanghai, the new ute carries bears the hefty weight of expectation from head office...

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...
