New spy shots showing the final-final production version of the Haval H8, indicating the big SUV is finally ready for the China car market. The Haval H8 will be launched on October, price will range from from 155.800 yuan to 199.800 yuan, making the H8 the most expensive Haval so far, but it won’t be at the top very long because the even bigger Haval H9 is on its way.
Huge imposing grille with three fat-chrome bars will appeal very much to Chinese car buyers who want, and need, Bling for their money. Alloys a bit too tame compared with grille, should be more shiny! Big grille on a Big car: 4806/1975/1794, wheelbase is 2915. Power will come from a 2.0 turbo with 218hp and 324nm, mated to a 6-speed automatic. Chassis: uni-body. Suspension: front: double-wishbone independent, rear: multi-link independent. Drive train: 4×2 or 4×4.
Haval still doesn’t have a real logo so they just use ‘Haval’, sometimes on a red background and sometimes not. This particular car seems to be a top of the line 4WD example.
