The 2021 Haval H6 SUV: A New Platform and Dimensions

The Haval H6, a popular Chinese SUV, has been completely transformed, receiving a new design inside and out.

The car is already preparing to conquer the market.

Patent images of the third-generation Haval H6 were leaked to the Internet in May. A month later, live photos of the new car appeared in the database of the Ministry of Industry of China. Now, it is high time for official images.

The H6 was released in 2011 under the Great Wall brand. The SUV received its current name after Haval became a separate brand in 2013. In 2017, sales of the second generation model started in the Chinese market. At the same time, the first H6 remained in service, but with the prefix ‘Sport’ in the name. In recent years, the SUV remains the leader of its segment in the Chinese market, despite the fact that sales of the model decreased after the release of the second generation.

The manufacturer has officially announced the next, third-generation H6. The SUV is based on a new modular platform. At the same time, it is noted that the share of high-strength steels in it has increased, and the new Haval has lost in weight. The model’s dimensions are not officially discussed: the manufacturer keeps them secret. However, thanks to the «leak», they have long been no secret: length -4653 mm, width — 1886 mm, height — 1730 mm, wheelbase — 2738 mm. This is approximately comparable to the Toyota RAV 4.

As for external changes, the vehicle has received a new large logo with a black backing (previously, it was dark blue) and a redesigned radiator grille. A sign with the model name on the back end is also markedly increased. The mounting of side-view mirrors is also changed. Now, they are held on separate legs, and taillights are combined in one wide line.

The manufacturer has not officially showed photos of the interior yet, but they have already appeared in the Internet. There is a new front fascia, central tunnel and steering wheel, as well as a digital cockpit. An infotainment touchscreen rises slightly above the dashboard. A rotary shifter is used instead of a conventional gearshift lever.

Engines are also kept secret. According to the Ministry of Industry of China, the new car will feature a 1.5-liter turbocharged V4 petrol engine with a power output of 169 hp. What concerns a transmission, it is also not clear. There will probably be installed a dual-clutch gearbox, like in the previous version of the model.

The official premiere of the 2021 Haval H6 is scheduled for August. The venue is a car dealership in Chengdu, but it may still change due to the raging coronavirus infection. The new SUV will be released in China before the end of the year. The exact release date is not announced.
