Patent Applied: facelift for the Great Wall Haval M2
Published on December 20, 2012 by W.E. Ning
Great Wall Automotive is working on a facelift for the Great Wall Haval M3 mini SUV, it will be launched on the Chinese car market sometime next year. The facelift included a completely new front and a completely new back. The Haval M4 has been on the market since 2009 and it received a small facelift in 2011.
The current Great Wall Haval M2, it sits in the market like a kinda funky sporty cross-over-isch lifestyle SUV-sorta-car for sorta kinda young people who like to be kinda sorta cool. The market for this kind of vehicles however, is not very big. The young ‘n cool rather save money to buy a Volkswagen or a Buick. Still, others are coming too. Zhongxing is preparing the extremely cool and extremely urban Urban Ark twin which will be launched sometime next year.
Great Wall got scared and decided to hip up the already very hip M2! The current car sells for 67.900 yuan, powered by a 106hp 1.5 liter L4. Very underpowered but as far as we know now the engine will continue unchanged in the facelifted car. Price will be about the same.
