Spy Shots: Haval H7 SUV testing in China
Published on December 5, 2013 by Tycho de Feijter
The very first spy shots of the production version on the Haval H7 SUV testing in China. The Haval H7 will debut on the April 2014 Beijing Auto Show and it will be launched on the China car market in the second half of next year. The Haval H7 will be positioned just under the Haval H8 that hit the Chinese auto market last month.
The Haval H7 debuted as a concept on the 2013 Shanghai Auto Show. Funky two-tone paint scheme will be available on the production car. Price for the Haval H7 will range from around 130.000 to 180.000 yuan.
At launch there will be only one engine available: a 2.0 turbo with 218hp and 324nm, mated to a 6-speed manual or six-speed automatic. This is the same engine that powers the H8. Haval is working on something even more sweet; a souped-up version of the 2.0 turbo with 272hp and 370nm, mated to a 9-speed automatic. The engine will debut late next year and will also become available in the H8 and in the upcoming Haval H9.
Basic design stays very close to concept car, compare:
Grille will be chromed, in the fattest way.
