Zimoco has introduced the Haval H6 in the Zimbabwean market. The newcomer appears to shift the goalposts in the family-car segment in terms of standard specification, connectivity and active safety features.
Following hot on the heels of the new Jolion, and looking expressively more modern than its forerunner, the new-generation Haval H6 has landed in Zimbabwe, and it’s available in one Model currently but it has four model flavours.
The range kicks off with the 2.0T Premium at $40000, while the Luxury model takes the middle ground with the front-wheel drive version and the all-wheel drive are currently not available. At the top of the pile is the Super Luxury and Zimbabweans are eager to see it.
All four versions are powered by a new-generation 2-litre direct injection turbopetrol engine, which produces 150 kW and 320 N.m, and a seven-speed DCT (dual clutch) transmission is standard across the board.
Haval claims its newcomer, which has a McPherson-strut front- and a multi-link rear suspension setup, offers a best-in-class wheelbase length of 2 738 mm. What’s more, its centre of gravity has been lowered by some 20 mm.
All models come with leather seats (six-way electrically adjustable for the driver) as well as push-button start, auto headlights and wipers, rear parking sensors, reverse camera, tyre pressure monitoring and six airbags.
The mid-range Luxury models add a panoramic sunroof to the mix as well as dual-zone climate control, front parking sensors, 360-degree View Camera, Lane Departure Alert and Traffic Sign Recognition.
The range-topping Super Luxury gains 19-inch alloys (replacing the 18″ rims fitted to the other models), automatic tailgate, heated front seats, wireless phone charger, head-up display, rear privacy glass and Blind Spot Detection.
The new H6 is available in grey, red, white, brown, green, blue and black exterior finishes. Its standard interior scheme is black, but can be ordered with black-and-brown, black-and-grey and black-and-red combinations.
