Spy Shots of the facelifted Haima S7 SUV for China. The facelift centers on the front and includes a new and larger grille with vertical bars and a new bumper. Biggest change however hides under the bonnet; the facelifted Haima S7 will be available with a brand new turbocharged 1.8 liter four-cylinder petrol engine.
This is the current Haima S7 SUV. It launched as the Haima 7 in 2010, and was renamed Haima S7 when it was first facelifted in 2013. Current price starts at 106.800 yuan and ends at 146.800 yuan. Lone engine is a 2.0 liter four with 150hp, mated to a five-speed manual or a five-speed automatic.
The facelifted Haima S7 will debut on the Shanghai Auto Show in April and launch on the Chinese car market early in the second half of the year. The 2.0 will continue, accompanied by the new 1.8 turbo. This engine has an output of 185hp and 230nm, and will be mated to the same transmissions as the 2.0.
Price for the Haima S7 1.8T is expected to start around 135.000 yuan.
No changes at the back. Tiny exhaust pipes remain. Haima logo could use a makeover as it starts to look very old-fashioned in 2015.
Biggest change inside is a big LCD screen for an infotainment system.
Current, still with green on the screen!
