With its smooth contours, chiselled flanks and exquisite detailing, the H6 provides a distinctive and upmarket new alternative in the fiercely contested compact SUV/crossover segment. All South African-specification H6 models feature premium trim and, as such, boast 17-inch alloy wheels, full colour-coding with chrome detailing, roof rails*, daylight running lamps and privacy glass.
Under its elegant bodywork the H6 features an all-new unibody platform that ensures superb rigidity and low levels of NVH (noise, vibration and harshness). Suspension is via MacPherson struts at the front and a multi-link arrangement at the rear. The H6's underpinnings have been tuned to deliver maximum occupant comfort. With a ground clearance of 180 mm when fully laden, the H6 can also confidently traverse rougher roads and those middelmannetjies so typical of South African adventures.
From the driver's seat, the emphasis on maximum ergonomic efficiency is obvious. The leather-trimmed* steering wheel is adjustable for both rake and reach, the facia-mounted gearlever falls easily to hand and there are fold-out armrests for both front seats. The H6's interior is finished in upmarket black, with satin silver accents further contributing to the sophisticated ambience. Leather and soft- touch surfaces also appear on the doors.
The crowning jewel of the H6's standard features list is its comprehensive infotainment system. A full-colour touch-screen system* is mounted in the centre of the facia within easy reach, and features radio/CD/DVD/MP3 playback. It is further supported by a mini-SD slot (below the screen), and USB and auxiliary ports mounted in the storage box between the seats. The system features Bluetooth integration, and can be remotely controlled via buttons mounted on the steering wheel. When reverse gear is selected, the screen displays a feed from the rear-mounted camera, aiding in parking manoeuvres. An audible warning system is also activated when reversing.
The H6's high-strength body has been designed to meet global safety requirements. South African vehicles feature dual front SRS airbags, disc brakes all-round, ABS with EBD (electronic brake force distribution) and BAS (brake assist). The front seatbelts are height- adjustable and feature load limiters and pre- tensioners. At the rear, Isofix child seat mounts provide the safest possible anchorage points for child seats. Tyre pressure monitors are also standard on both models.
Perfectly aligned with the current trend of engine downsizing, HAVAL's new 4GW15B turbo- petrol promises the performance of a larger, naturally aspirated engine, but without the accompanying fuel consumption penalty. The engine delivers 105 kW at 5 600 rpm and 202 Nm of torque from 2 200 to 4 500 rpm. This engine is also mated to a six-speed manual transmission and delivers a combined cycle fuel consumption figure of 8,5 L/100 km.
