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...

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 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 H2 'MT' launches from $19,990 drive-away

Haval Australia has launched the H2 MT, a new entry-level manual version of its smallest crossover that dips under the $20,000 barrier for the first time. Priced from $19,990 drive-away, the H2 MT is powered by the same 110kW/210Nm 1.5-litre turbo four as the wider range, though is exclusively offered with a six-speed manual transmission and front-wheel drive...

Haval launches seven-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty promotion

Haval has announced it will offer a seven-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty across its range until December 31. The promotion is part of its 2018 plate clearance, and will apply to private buyers exclusively – business, fleet and rental customers will have to settle for a seven-year, 150,000km coverage period...

Haval H2, H6 given drive-away price cut

Haval has trimmed the price of its H2 and H6 SUVs, lowering the cost of entry to $22,990 drive-away and $28,990 drive-away respectively. In the case of the front-wheel drive H2 Premium Automatic, that represents a $1000 price cut on the regular drive-away price, which itself is well down on the $26,490 (before on-road costs) Haval was asking for when the car touched down in October 2015...

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...
