Beijing Auto Show: Greatwall Haval H5

May 6, 2010 by Tycho de Feijter

The Greatwall Haval H5 is the successor  of the Greatwall Hover. It comes in two: this one called ‘GKC Edition’ with a typical new Chinese front with a huge grille and one other called ‘European Style’ with a much more modest front. Except for the front both cars are completely identical and both will hit the market at the same time in a few months. Because this one is for China only it gets a petrol engine, diesel is forbidden for passenger cars in most of the country.

Beijing Auto Show: Greatwall Haval H5 European Style

May 6, 2010 by Tycho de Feijter

The Greatwall Haval H5 is the successor  of the Greatwall Hover. It comes in two: this one called ‘European Style’ with a modest front and one other called ‘GKC Edition‘ with a typical new Chinese front with a huge grille. Except for the front both cars are completely identical and both will hit the market at the same time in a few months.

The H5 ‘European Style’ is also meant to spearhead Greatwall’s invasion of Europe, that is why the name. For that it got a Diesel which those Europeans like, especially the Italians ’cause a diesel means less tax and so more money for vino.

Beijing Auto Show Live: Greatwall Haval H6

April 30, 2010 by Tycho de Feijter

Haval is Greatwall’s new brandname for SUV, it should have been ‘Hover’ but GW was unable to register that name in any country abroad so Haval it was. The H6 came as a concept but will see production within a year. It stands on the same platform as the H5’s but is 20 centimeter lower to give it a more sporty/crossover/luxurious look. Greatwall doesn’t specify the engine so likely it will be another 2.4.
